Heart-shaped pendant necklaces and jewellery featuring hearts are always a great choice for Valentines day gifts. The stylised heart shape has an emotional connection and is often referred to as the symbol of love and adoration, making it perfect for a Valentines day confession. 

Heart-shaped pendant necklaces are the more popular of heart shaped jewellery options because of the way the necklace is worn. A necklace allows the wearer to display the Valentines gift to others showing off the givers affection to other people and the location of the heart pendant is very close to the actual heart giving it more sentimental value.

These heart shaped pendants are some of the best available for people on a $50 budget this Valentines day. Despite the low cost, the quality of many of these items is quite good. This is because their retail prices are typically much higher than their current listed prices. That means you can get a great quality gift on a resonable budget. If, however, you are willing to spend a bit more you can get some stunning pieces of jewellery for under $100.

Tips For Buying Necklace Pendants Online 

  • Buying necklace pendants online is virtually risk-free as there is no chance that the necklace will not fit (unlike rings for example).
  • Amazon typically has necklace pendants and other jewellery available for way below retail price (often up to 70% off) and they deliver quickly making them a great choice for Valentines day and birthday gifts. Other online retailers sometimes have similar discounts too, though avoid eBay if you are unsure as there is typically more risk involved.
  • Only buy necklace pendants that have positive, 4 star or more reviews so that you can be sure the quality of the pendant matches the picture. 
  • It's worthwhile purchasing a higher quality chain for the pendant at a later date as the ones that come with them can be quite fragile and prone to breakage.
  • If none of these necklaces suit, try looking for necklaces for under $100 instead.
