Explore the most unique and precious pendant necklaces in DC

The pendant is one of the most unique pieces in the jewelry world. They are created to draw attention, make a statement, and tell a story. Pendant necklaces have transformed through time, with various styles, details, and trends, but always remain a popular piece. At Charles Schwartz & Son, we have the most unique collection of antique, vintage, and modern designer pendant necklaces.

History of the pendant necklace

The history of the pendant comes from the evolution of primitive practices in which people dating back to the Stone Age would wear amulets or talismans made of teeth, shells, or stones. People from around the world adopted the pendant into their culture and made it their own by signifying religious beliefs, hierarchies, sentiments, and wealth.

Over time, jewelry became more of an artistic expression. Pendants still held deeper meaning, but jewelers began to experiment with more diamonds, gemstones, motifs, designs, and structures. This explosion of creative expression led to pendant necklaces becoming a fashion statement, which has stuck ever since.
