Pendants Guide


Pendants For Every Possible Occasion  

Everyone has their favorite necklace that they can wear more than one pendant with. Pendants are key jewelry additions because they can be mixed and matched with so many different necklaces. Unless the necklace itself is flashy, pendants are the ones that get all the attention.

That’s why most of the time, when people refer to a necklace, they are usually referring to a pendant. Albeit often underestimated, these lovely, versatile jewelry pieces can be the life of the party when it comes to fashionable necklaces. They have much to say about style.
Pendants have the ability to convey many different messages.
There are several reasons why someone may choose to wear one particular type of pendant rather than another.
This post will enlighten you regarding the main kinds of pendants so you’ll know
exactly how to wear them for every occasion.

Defining the material of your pendant

Let’s begin by asking: What do you want your pendant to look like? At Orr’s, we carry an extensive selection of materials. In addition to yellow gold, white gold and rose gold, we also carry pink gold pendants, as well as sterling silver, oxidized or not, and platinum. 

What kind of material do you like or which of those match your skin? As a rule of thumb, yellow and rose tones of gold are a perfect addition to warmer skin undertones as it shines with it, whereas white gold, sterling silver, and platinum look superb on both fairer and neutral skin undertones. 

Main types of pendants 

Another way to choose the right pendant for you is to look at the precious gems it contains
and pick the one you love to be featured in that pendant. In that case, we hereby chose to highlight the following categories
