Top 5 Stylish Ways to Wear a Diamond Pendant

The epitome of sophistication, diamond pendants effortlessly add glamour to any look. Classic and contemporary all the same time, there will always be demand for the delectable diamond pendant.

There are a huge number of different ways to wear diamond pendants, and we've assembled a guide to the most fabulously stylish ways. If you follow these simple rules, your look will be every bit as sparkling as your diamond.


Keep it simple! Although diamond pendants are unarguably one of the most glamorous pieces of jewellery out there, this doesn't mean you have to don your ball gown every time you wear one.

Whether it's your daily work outfit or you're just dressing for downtime, a diamond pendant can add a touch of sparkle that won't ever look out of place. A simple black or monochrome outfit can sometimes be one of the most effortless ways to wear diamonds. Dressing down diamonds might seem counter-intuitive, but it can be one of the most effective ways to wear them.


Make sure your diamonds compliment your outfit well by thinking carefully about the neckline you wear. Avoid anything too detailed or embellished, and let your jewellery do the talking. Stick to scoop necks, v necks, strapless and off-the shoulder tops to give your pendant the maximum impact.

Although it can be easy to get wrapped up in the sparkle, it isn't all about the diamond pendant! Make sure that any other jewellery or accessories you wear are a good match with your pendant.  Make sure everything ties together well with your overall style, be it timeless chic or a cool, contemporary look.


The diamond pendant is a stand-out piece of jewellery that needs no accompaniment. THAT being said - sometimes a little extra layering can be the perfect way to elevate your look into something extra special. Layered necklaces and stacked rings and bracelets can be a great way to show off your individual style.
