Did You Know?

The word pendant comes from the French verb “pendre” which means to hang down. A pendant is a loose hanging gemstone or other piece of jewelry attached to a necklace.

The pendant dates back to the Stone Age when they were worn as amulets or talismans around the neck to ward off evil spirits. Back then they consisted of teeth, shells or bone, worn as trophies to bring the wearer on the next hunt for food. These evolved into beads made of glass or pottery, which were found in ancient Egyptian grave sites.

With the invention of the chain, pendant necklaces became popular. Ancient Greeks and Romans wore pendants around their necks to protect themselves from evil. Later, pendants were worn as symbols of identity, rank and authority, and to deify royalty. The more elaborate the pendant, the more important the wearer. In the Middle Ages, both kings and clergymen wore huge pendants of gold and gemstones denoting their authority and office.

Diamonds were popularized when methods were discovered to cut them, sometime around the 1300s, so it was a natural transition to add them to the pendant. In the 17th century, the pendant fell somewhat out of favor because both women and men wore elaborate, chin high ruffs which were considered fashionable. It wasn’t until women’s necklines were lowered that the pendant came back into style. In fact, the history of the pendant necklace closely follows that of the fashion in necklines.

The lavalier, which includes not one but two pendants, was named by Louise De La Valliere, one of King Louis X1V’s mistresses who apparently loved the style. You will see this style echoed in many Art Deco pieces.

During the 1920s Art Deco period, flapper girls shocked society by shortening their hemlines and bobbing their hair, while the pendants and necklaces they wore became longer and more elaborate. As experts in Art Deco period jewelry, Dover carries many exceptional, collectible pieces.

Consider, for example, this truly extraordinary Art Deco aquamarine, diamond, onyx and pearl pendant necklace featuring a 27.14 carat aquamarine, an old European cut center diamond weighing approximately .7 carats, and 32 round cut diamonds displayed to perfection with 7 mm black onyx cabochon cut stones in multiple shapes.
