Diamond cross pendants are great jewelry items because they allow you to make a fashionable statement as well as a statement about your beliefs. They can be given for a variety of occasions, including birthdays, graduations, etc., but are most often given for religious holidays or occasions. Cross pendants are an appropriate gift for baptisms, Easter, Christmas, and other religious events.

Deciding on Designs for Diamond Cross Pendants

The most popular design for diamond cross pendants is a cross that is covered with small diamonds. You can also choose from gold, silver, or other precious metals for a cross pendant design. These pendants may have one or a few diamonds set into the center of the cross. Cross pendants can also feature other colorful gems besides diamonds.

After you have chosen your pendant, you will want to choose an appropriate chain. The type and length of chain you choose may be determined by your preferences and by what will best complement your diamond cross pendant. For instance, if you have chosen a gold cross pendant with diamonds, you should probably purchase a gold chain that matches your pendant.

You can choose from a variety of chain types and lengths as well. Some available chain types include beads, cable, connecting circles, snake, wheat, mesh, braids, rope, boxes, and knots. There are three main lengths of chains for diamond cross pendants. The smallest is 16 in. and the middle length is 18 in. The largest length of chain for a pendant is 24 in. and this is also known as the "opera length."
