What's The Difference Between Necklace And Pendant?

Hello, sparkling souls! Get ready for another dazzling adventure as we dive into the heart of the matter — understanding the distinction between necklaces and pendants. Our aim at Luvari is to make you not only look glamorous but also feel knowledgeable and confident about your choices. So, without further ado, let's get started!

Understanding Necklaces

Necklaces have adorned human necks for centuries. These radiant circles of joy have played significant roles across cultures and periods, often symbolizing wealth, power, faith, or love.

At Luvari, we're all about the joy of variety. Our necklace selection ranges from chokers to opera lengths, from simple chains to complex patterns. Each design, available exclusively on our online platform, can make a statement or subtly enhance your natural charm.

Delving into Pendants

Pendants, too, have an impressive history. They've been tokens of affection, marks of faith, and artistic expressions across time and cultures. Pendants can take many forms and styles - from elaborate gemstone-studded pieces to minimalistic designs.

The beauty of pendants lies in their versatility. Each pendant on our website is a testament to this, reflecting the creativity and personal stories of our customers. We believe each pendant holds a unique message, waiting to be conveyed.

Distinctive Features of Necklaces and Pendants

To clear up any confusion, let's talk about the physical characteristics. A necklace is a standalone piece of jewelry worn around the neck, often consisting of a chain or a string of beads, pearls, or other gemstones.

On the other hand, a pendant is a dangling piece of jewelry that hangs from a chain or cord. It's the cherry on top, the attention-grabbing piece that often symbolizes something personal to the wearer.

The Interplay between Necklaces and Pendants

The magic truly happens when necklaces and pendants come together. The chain of the necklace provides a platform for the pendant to shine, while the pendant adds personality and a focal point to the necklace. 

Many of our customers at Luvari love this interplay, often creating a perfect harmony between the two. And remember, every piece you see can be made-to-order or fully customized based on just an idea!

Picking the Right Choice: Necklace or Pendant

We understand that choosing between a necklace and a pendant can sometimes be a conundrum. Your choice should reflect your personal style, the occasion, and the attire. A simple gold necklace might be perfect for a business meeting, while a diamond pendant could be just the thing for a romantic dinner.

If you're still unsure, don't worry! Our complimentary Luvari Jewelry Concierge team is here to guide you through every step of your journey, ensuring that your choice sparkles just as much as you do!

Care and Maintenance of Necklaces and Pendants

To keep your Luvari pieces shining bright, it's essential to care for them properly. Gentle cleaning, careful storage, and regular checks will ensure that your necklaces and pendants continue to dazzle for years to come.


Whether you're drawn to the elegant simplicity of a necklace or the personal symbolism of a pendant, the choice is ultimately a reflection of you. At Luvari, our mission is to help you tell your unique story through our pieces while delivering outstanding value by cutting out the middleman and unnecessary markups.
