The wide variety of styles for custom necklaces allows you to choose the one best suited for you. When creating a custom necklace, it is important that you find one that complements your style. The questions below are ones we commonly receive regarding custom necklaces and pendants:
What are the common types of custom necklaces?
Some are silver or gold, while others include a gemstone or pendant. Necklaces are available in specific styles. Knowing the different necklace types will ensure you receive the necklace that you want. Common styles are: chain, pendant, bib, lariat, sautoir, riviere, choker, torsade, torc, and festoon.
What is a chain necklace?
Chain necklaces can be made in one of four styles: curb links, matinee, opera, and rope. The most common is the curb link chain necklace, which is a simple chain necklace with a single row of diamonds or gemstone pavé. Other styles include the princess (16-18 inches), matinee (20-22 inches), opera (30-36 inches) and rope (36 inches and above).
What is a pendant necklace?
A pendant is a piece of jewelry that hangs from the chain. It's often a gemstone or a custom piece that's engraved. A pendant is usually attached to the chain. Some of them have a loop that encircles the choker, while others are straight and touch your collarbone.
