Pendants date back many years, and were very early adornments. They have centuries of history and come to us from prehistoric times. The first pendants were used as talisman and amulets, used to protect the wearer from bad luck, misery and illness. Pendants were tho

ught to scare away evil spirits and bring a magic power to the wearer, giving success to hunters and granting status in the community.

In ancient Egypt, the pendant symbolized the heart as the origin and supply of life. That’s why Egyptians wore pendants on their chests, close to their hearts. The most powerful pendant was an image of the scarab, which meant immortality and a perpetual circle of life and transformation.

In medieval Europe, pendants emerged as the modern jewelry item it is today. They were worn more for decoration, and many original designs were generously decorated with different gemstones.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, every Royal court in Europe had many fashionable men and women wearing pendants. The epitome of elegance and refinement at that time was a golden pendant with diamonds. Nearly every wealthy and respectable person had at least one of these pendants. Alexandra, the bride of King Edward VII was the first member of the British Royal family to display a necklace in public. Her famous pearl necklace with the great pearl pendant created a furor at court.

Since then, the pendant has become a fashion main stay. They are the indispensable signature piece of every jewelry collection.

The pendant would be the perfect gift for the girl who doesn’t wear earrings or for a distinguished woman of any age. You can choose an extravagant style for a special occasion, or something more modest for enjoyment every day. If there is a special style or design that you’re looking for, you can create a one of a kind design at Lapidary Arts.
