Tips For Choosing a Heart Pendant for Your Affection
When deciding on what style of heart is best for your Valentine affection it is important to consider factors such as: their other jewellery, the type and color of clothes they like to wear and the occasions that they might wear the necklace on. Here are a few guidelines:
- If they have a lot of silver jewellery already it is a good idea to go with a silver necklace and colourful stones.
- Silver, gold and diamonds go with almost any clothing colours. If they like to wear a lot of neutral colored clothes (browns, blacks, whites and dark blues) colorful stones will be a good match.
- Gold, diamonds and ornate designs are better for special occasions while simple silver or gold pendants are great for everyday.
Buying Necklace Pendants Online
Buying necklace pendants online is a great choice, you can often find pieces for much cheaper than retail and there is little risk that they will not fit as necklace chains are fairly universal.
However, to reduce risk it is a good idea to only buy from online vendors that have a good returns policy and that the item you are buying has positive reviews (4-5 out of 5 stars). Amazon is a great choice for these reasons and for their sales on jewellery leading up to Valentines day.
It's great to know that you can stick to a $100 budget and still get great-looking, high quality heart shaped necklace pendants. I hope this list has given you some ideas on what gift to get your partner (or partner to be). Best of luck!
