What occasion are you buying a pendant for?

A pendant is the perfect choice for many occasions: birthdays, achievements and life events (communion, confirmation, graduation, promotion, etc.), wedding anniversaries, Valentine's Day and Christmas.

With versatile options to suit every style, if you want to put a smile on your loved one's face, you can't go wrong with a pendant.

How do you find the right pendant?

The first question you should ask yourself when shopping for a pendant is a matter of taste: which metal do you prefer for your jewellery? A classic choice, white gold is easy to pair with other jewellery, much like shiny yellow gold, while rose gold has a lovely warm tone and platinum brings a touch of modernity.

The next element to consider is chain length, from short "choker" styles to longer designs. It may help to think about your wardrobe and the necklines you typically wear.

BAUNAT offers a wide range of pendant styles: solitaire, halo, with two or three precious stones, heart-shaped, or abstract designs.

If you choose a pendant set with a precious stone, be it a diamond or a sapphire, there are four key factors to consider: weight (in carats), colour, clarity and cut. These four factors also affect the price of the pendant, so you should always have a budget in mind.

Should you propose with a pendant?

Nowadays, necklaces and pendants are an increasingly popular alternative to traditional engagement rings, especially for women who cannot wear jewellery on their hands for professional reasons.

After all, pendants and engagement rings are just different ways to wear a diamond or another precious stone. A pendant set with a beautiful diamond can be the perfect choice to pop the question.
