The History of the Pendant Necklace
The word pendant comes from the Latin word pendere which mean “to hang down.” Pendant necklaces have been worn for thousands of years across many different cultures. For example, the pendant necklace was worn by royalty in ancient Egypt. Pharaohs wore scarab beetles crafted from gold and they also wore pendants engraved with cartouches as symbols of both good luck and power. To this day pendant necklaces are steeped in symbolism and meaning. Pendant necklaces with the Christian Cross or the Star of David are two examples of Pendants being worn primarily for their symbolic value.
Pendants are worn as amulets and as pieces of jewelry that protect the wearer from evil or harm. In Judaism, the character for “living” hay, has a history of being worn around the neck as an amulet since the thirteenth century. In Turkey and other parts of Middle East, the nazar pendant is commonly placed near the doorway of a home to protect the residence of the house from the Evil Eye.

Some Interesting Facts about Pendants
The first watch was probably a Pendant. Peter Henlein (Sometimes written Henle), a 16th century clock maker from Nuremberg, Germany, is often cited as the inventor of the first watch. Henlein’s first “watches” were actually wearable miniature clocks which hung from the neck or clothing as pendants and they were outrageously expensive. It was also during the 16th century that the pendant necklace started to be worn in Europe as purely decorative jewelry. At this time, cameos, pearls and jewels started to appear in pendant necklaces across Europe.
Juleve’s Ruby and White Diamond Pendant Necklace captures the romance of Renaissance Europe with it’s 1.26 Emerald Cut Ruby surrounded by pink and white diamonds.
Art Nouveau School Pendant Necklaces
The Art Nouveau School in the 19th century embraced the pendant necklace and added a new layer of whimsy by using motifs from nature such as butterflies and flowers.
This Juleve Bi-color Amethyst and Diamond Necklace embraces the fun of the Art Nouveau School with a dragonfly hovering above a rare Checkerboard Bi Color Amethyst surrounded by 2.87 carats of micro pave set round diamonds. Simply spectacular!

Fancy colored diamonds are amazing in that the colors not only carry psychological power but the colors of Fancy Diamonds also reflect their creation and their history. As a diamond formed in the earth, the presence of certain elements and/or temperature fluctuations caused the color of the diamond to change as it was developing.

The impact of colors on psychology is an area of study that is closely linked to the impact of colors on human emotions. Colors are used effectively in everything from branding, think Tiffany’s blue boxes, to controlling violence in prisons. The psychological power behind colors is fascinating. A colored ring has hidden meaning and also hidden influence on the psychology of the wearer and viewer alike.
Naturally colored diamonds, also known as Fancy Diamonds, come in every color of the rainbow and they are exceptionally rare. Blue, pink, red, purple and canary yellow are some of the most sought after colors in Fancy Diamonds. Fancy Diamonds also can come in black-gray, brown and even milky white. Before you buy your Fancy Diamond, here are some interesting facts about the psychology of the color as well as the formation of the stones.
The Hope Diamond is the most famous blue diamond on the planet. Pure, cool, magically rich and deep, the color blue is associated with purity and wealth. It is the color of intuition and peace. The presence of boron when the stone was forming, leads to stones that range from a light sky blue to a rich deep blue, the color of the ocean. Associated with water and the sky, blue is the color of sophistication and calm.
Pink diamonds are breathtaking in their beauty and they have been known to bring astronomical prices at auction. It isn’t exactly known how pink diamonds are formed but it is thought that at some point during its formation the diamond was exposed to intense pressure causing an alteration in the crystalline structure of the stone. Psychologically, pink is associated with femininity as well as fertility. Pink is a calming color and it is associated with caring and relaxation.
Red diamonds are one of the rarest stones on the planet. These stones are so rare that not much is known about them or their formation. Like pink diamonds, it is thought that pressure during formation changes the crystalline structure resulting in the rich red color of the diamond. Red is the color of passion and love. Fiery, vital and volatile, red is also associated with happiness and health.
Associated with royalty, purple diamonds command noble price tags. Purple is the color of fidelity, honor and courage and the wearer of a purple diamond is thought to have good luck and long life. Purple is also associated with the imagination.
Some of the most interesting diamonds, the color green is thought to result from the irradiation of the diamond while it was forming in the earth. The effect of the radiation causes the electrons in the crystalline structure to change slightly resulting in the color green. Psychologically, green is associated with growth and fertility, with balance, renewal and rebirth.
Canary yellow diamonds are created through the addition of nitrogen during the formation of the stone. Intensely yellow diamonds are the most common of the Fancy Diamonds but they are still extremely rare. Some of the best canary yellow diamonds come from mines here in this country, in Arkansas. Yellow is the color of happiness and wealth. Yellow reflects an intellectual individual. It is also associated with joy and power.
