A diamond necklace or pendant makes a great gift for a loved one, or even for yourself. They come in a wide range of designs and styles to suit almost every occasion. Our jewellery can be customised by selecting your preferred metal type and diamond specifications, meaning that we can easily create the necklace or pendant you desire. But what is the difference between diamond necklaces and pendants? We reveal the answer in this article.

What is a necklace?

A necklace is a chain, usually made from metal, gemstones or beads, designed to be worn decoratively around the neck. A diamond necklace usually refers to a tennis necklace or a chain with a diamond pendant.

What is a diamond pendant?

A diamond pendant is a single ornament used to adorn a necklace. Diamond pendant necklaces usually consist of a central diamond that is attached by a small loop to a jewellery chain made from precious metal. Diamond pendants come in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes, and there is one to suit almost every budget. Solitaire diamond pendants are the most popular pendant style because they are timeless and elegant.

The difference between a diamond necklace and pendant?

A diamond necklace is typically a necklace adorned partially or fully with diamonds. We usually refer to a diamond necklace as a tennis necklace. A diamond pendant is a single jewellery piece, of any shape, style or size that is attached to a chain by a loop. There are no rules when it comes to styling diamond pendants, and multiple can be added to a single chain or worn individually. 

Different types of diamond necklace

diamond necklace styles

Solitaire diamond necklace

A solitaire diamond pendant necklace is by far the most popular style. This style usually consists of a single diamond pendant attached to a precious metal chain. It is versatile enough to be worn both day and night and can be styled easily with other jewellery. 

Diamond tennis necklace

A diamond tennis necklace features a continuous strand of diamonds. There may be just one row of diamonds, or there may be multiple rows, depending on the design. One thing is for sure - a tennis necklace is one of the most luxurious styles.

Cascading necklace

A cascading necklace features multiple rows of diamonds or gemstones and emphasises an outfit. This style is ideal for adding more glamour to eveningwear.


A choker necklace is designed to sit above your collarbone or directly around your neck. Chokers come in a variety of different styles and materials. A diamond choker necklace usually contains multiple rows of diamonds and is typically reserved for special occasions.

Lariat necklace

A lariat necklace is long and elegant. Unlike other necklace styles, lariat necklaces do not have a traditional clasp fastening. Instead, one end is threaded through the other end to fasten it. 

Princess length necklace

A princess length necklace is one of the most versatile as it hangs just below the collarbone. Its length makes it ideal for wearing with several different necklines.

Opera necklace

An opera necklace is designed to draw attention. This style is very long and hangs very low - making it perfect for plunging necklines.

A beautiful diamond necklace or pendant can be the focal point of any outfit. Head to our other article 6 diamond necklace styles for every occasion, for advice on how to style your pendants and necklaces.
