If you happen to select a chain that we believe will not fit the pendant on
the same order, we will call or
email you to get instructions on how to proceed.
selecting a pendant chain, there are a few things to take into consideration.
You want to select the right chain the first time... one that will best
hold and display your special pendant or charms. The style you choose depends upon
your lifestyle and the look you want to achieve. Some people want a heavy
chain that is more durable... others are searching for a dainty chain that will
not distract from the pendant... others still are searching based on what is
Metal Quality: First, you need to decide whether you want the metal quality to
match your pendant or charm. We offer sterling silver, 10k yellow gold or
14k yellow or white gold. 14k white gold has become a lot more popular
over the past year. Most people usually select the same
color/quality as the pendant. However, some customers prefer to spend less
on the chain and will go with a sterling silver chain even if the pendant is 14k
white gold. This is completely up to you.
Style: The style of the
pendant chain selected is a personal preference. We offer several
different styles including Wheat and Parisian chains, Box and Spiga chains,
Open-Weave or Diamond-Cut Rope chains. Several other styles and also lengths are
also available and, although we don't stock them, they are available as special
Weight/Thickness: You need to decide if the chain will fit your lifestyle.
If you are very careful with you necklace, maybe wearing it just for good, or
you don't have a baby that will be pulling on the chain, you might decide to
purchase a fine, lightweight chain. If you are someone who always forgets
to take your chain off before removing a turtleneck sweater (we know who we
are... we take off the sweater and the chain breaks and falls at our feet), you
might wish to purchase a heavier chain like a Wheat, Parisian or Spiga chain
because they are stronger. Note: There is no chain that cannot be
broken. Even if a heavier chain is selected, you still must use common
sense and avoid tension on the links. But these chains will hold up better
to a few accidental pulls compared to say a lightweight open-weave pendant
