The difference between a necklace and a pendant is that a necklace itself is placed around the neck and is made up of the chain. A pendant differs as this is a smaller piece of jewellery that attaches to the necklace, often taking centre stage sitting in the middle of the chain. A perfect pairing in our eyes. Shop the styles you love. Make a statement with a bold pendant design, or add an elegant touch of simplicity with an understated piece.
