The word pendant derives from the Latin word pendere and Old French word pendr.   Both words roughly translate into “to hang down”. The Old English “pendant” referred to a suspended ornament either from a bracelet, earring, or, a necklace.  However, the custom of wearing pendants dates back to the Stone Age.  Then, materials like stones, animal teeth, bones, or shells were used as necklace components.  More precious materials from far away lands were also valued for early necklaces.

Mediterranean red coral has been found in a Neolithic burial grounds as far away as the Swiss Alps circa 4200-3400 BC.  Ethnic necklaces made of precious organic materials like coral were meant to display the woman’s or her family’s wealth and are usually worn during courting rituals or at weddings.  These were usually string with a rope or natural cord.  The first known example of a gold necklace dates back to 17th century BC discovered in Mycenae.  By 300 BC, the Greeks had mastered cutting gemstones such as amethysts, pearls and emeralds. That’s when the pendant as we know it today started appearing as an article of jewelry.

The ancient Egyptians routinely fashioned beads of glass and glazed pottery and would fashion these items into stunning necklaces. The pharaohs used to wear huge pieces filled with lapis lazuli, gold and other precious stones.  many of their pendants have their origin in the natural world.  Since many animals were thought to be sacred, many pendants were create celebrating cats, winged scarabs, vultures, falcons, and snakes.

Dagger Pendant

This dagger necklaces was part of a his and hers set we created.  They came from some video game, but we can’t remember that it was.  regardless, it turned out well.

By far and away, the majority of pendants worn were of of a religious sentiment. This grew from the belief that talismans or charms could ward off evil powers or spirits. In the middle ages, a new characteristic of pendants appeared when someone started engraving them with religious writings.  This further enhanced the idea that necklaces were for the upper class as the lower ones were illiterate.  Consequently, both kings and the high ranking clergy wore huge collars of gold, enamel, and gemstones, complete with their insignia or badge of office.

During the late Gothic and early Renaissance periods, necklaces became such an important part of dressing that in the 14th century it was customary for noblemen to add temporal themes such as family crests to their jewelry. What began out of a spiritual aim was now becoming a show or wealth and title.  According t0 Encyclopedia Britannica, since the beginning of the 16th century, pendants became decorative rather than religious objects. A number of beautiful pendants were created by Renaissance artists depicting numerous subjects such as mermaids, tritons, as well as mythological scenes.

During the early seventeenth century, pendants lost some of their popularity as ruffles and lace collars became the height of fashion.  Yet, that didn’t stop some artists from just making the pieces that much larger to compensate.  In the 19th century, cameos illustrating women’s profiles, butterflies, peacocks, and flowers came in fashion.   Today, CAD design has made it so that almost any kind of custom pendant can be created.  If a trend had to be identified, it would probably just be individualism.  People are now able to create incredibly personal custom pendants like never before.  So now, people are breaking from the  traditional fashion styles and having something more meaningful to them made.

Although the words pendant and necklace are used interchangeably, there is a technical difference between them. Before moving on, it is better we highlight this difference.

Necklaces and pendants both come under the category of neckwear. They both are worn around neck. However, they are not really the same thing.

When a necklace includes a charm that hangs or dangles from it, that charm is known as a pendant. A pendant is regularly joined to a necklace by a bail. We can say necklaces are pendants with chains. Other than on a necklace, pendants can also appear on bracelets and anklets.  However, those are usually considered charms.  A necklace pendant is usually a small piece of jewelry that can be worn only with a chain around the neck. Most jewelry stores sell pendants without the chain.  At Valeria Custom Jewelry, chains are not included with our custom gold pendants.


Necklaces are wonderful accessories and can really make an ensemble. With tons of styles available, women are able to choose from many different lengths and styles.  Here are a few styles of necklaces we can out our custom pendants on or adorn with precious stones.

Choker: A choker necklace is intended to rest over the collarbone, falling along the base of the neck. Many women wear chokers to accentuate their shoulders and neck. These styles go from basic ribbons and beads to high-end gems and chains.

Matinee: Used mostly for women who are wearing a plunging neckline, the matinee necklace sits right above the bust and is normally between 20 and 22 inches in length. They are most often embellished with beads or stones, and if your neck is extra-wide or you have a fuller bust than most women, you may want to choose a matinee necklace. It has a pendant, just in case the 20-inch necklace feels too tight.

Princess: Princess Length necklaces balance just beneath the collarbone of the wearer. These are a little longer than a choker.  These are among the most prevalent necklace styles and lengths.

Opera: Opera length necklaces are long and hang over a dress or blouse. They can have a large pendant on it or can also be layered.

Lariat:  If you know what a lariat is, you can picture what a lariat necklace looks like. Designed with no clasp points, the lariat necklace is a scarf-like neck piece that wraps around the neck and has just one strand hanging down the other.

Custom gold pendants comes in various styles. Some of the more common types of custom gold pendants are given below.

Amulet: Amulets are believed to possess magical or spiritual powers. They are supposed to save the wearer from dangers and calamities. These types of custom gold pendants can be worn looped in a necklace or simply bound on arm or leg.

Talisman: Talismans are the step-brother to amulets. Likewise, they are worn on the arm, leg, or worn along with a necklace. However, there is a key difference between amulets and talismans in terms of powers they possess. Talismans are not passive. They are worn to ward off evil spirits or catch a lover’s eye.

Medallion: A usually round pendant presented as an award or to commemorate something.  We also create medallions based on business logos.

Functional pendants: These include special kinds of pendants for respective functions. For example, the Traveler’s sundial pendant (a portable form of astronomical rings) used to tell time from the sun.

Unfortunately, we haven’t made many or any cross pendants, that doesn’t mean there is no demand for them.  There probably isn’t a more common type of necklace than the cross.  The cross is viewed as the most broadly perceived religious image on the planet. It is for the most part connected with Christianity yet has been utilized as an image by civilizations that came before Christianity. An Ankh is a good example of that. It was initially the Egyptian image meaning “forever”.

It was subsequently adopted by the Coptic Christians as their symbol. The cross has also regularly appeared in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and in a wide range of styles. The most conventional cross pendant designs are the Latin cross, , the Maltese cross, the Celtic cross, and the Rose Cross. We have a number of cross pendants with designs ranging from the more customary and austere, to the lavish and diamond accented.

Wearing cross necklaces as a symbol of one’s faith is nothing new. Indeed, crosses are one of the oldest types of pendants.  One such cross pendant is the Jerusalem Cross. It’s believed that this pendant was worn by Godfrey de Bouillon while he fought the Muslims in 1099. This style of cross pendant is made with a huge cross in the middle and little crosses in the four corners.

This design signifies that God’s will is spread throughout the four corners of the earth.  The “Warrior” was a well-known cross pendant that was worn by Charlemagne. It was created of gold with sapphire, which wasn’t special.  What set it apart was that it supposedly had splinters of the Cross and the crown of thorns set in to it.  Some of the most popular cross pendant designs are found in the history books of Ireland. Celtic crosses go back to the time when the Celts were being persecuted by the Catholics.  We have made quite a few Celtic rings we well.
