Get Playful with Pendants

Sometimes situations require us to look our best and take our looks to new levels of elegance and sophistication. That said, summer is playful and one of the ways to get playful and enjoy those priceless summery vibes is with jewelry, and more specifically, with pendants.

As simple as a pendant is, it can really make your outfit stand out. In addition to reflecting your character and taste, a gold pendant – regardless of its color and whether or not it’s set with diamonds – is a game-changer, especially if you’re wearing an open-neck top. Pairing it with the right jewelry pieces is also a way to shed the light on its beauty and distinguished style. So, if you want to make it the center of your jewelry set, opt for jewelry pieces that don’t overshadow it – think extremely simple studs or small hoops that tightly embrace your earlobe. And if you think of pairing it with another necklace, multi-motif necklaces are its best companions, as long as they both belong to the same theme without making your neck look overcharged.

With these tips in mind, let’s take you through our top pendant picks.

Bvlgari, B.zero1 pendant
Dior, Rose des Vents pendant
Chopard, Happy Hearts pendant
Piaget, Possession pendant
Akillis, Bang Bang pendant
Tiffany & Co., Tiffany Keys Fleur de Lis pendant
