Initial Pendant Meaning
: Such a pendant would in most cases have one alphabet but could sometimes have more.
It is presumed that the initial (alphabet) on the pendant would relate to the first name
or last name of a person but, other interesting variations are possible. An owner of a
business might like to have a men's initial pendant that includes an aplhabet from the
name of his business. In this case the meaning of the initial pendant would relate to
his business. We have come across gold or silver initial pendants where the alphabet
represented the name of a university, the idea probably was to have all former
students wear the pendant. An initial pendant for men could include more than
one alphabet, probably the initials of husband and wife. You could say that the
meaning of an initial pendant would depend on where the alphabets (initials) in
the pendant were picked from.
Gold Or Silver Pendant
: Look around and you will find that more men wear silver pendants as compared to
the ladies. The main reason for this relates to the prices of gold and silver men's
pendants. Since pendants for men would in general be larger than pendants for ladies,
metal cost forms an important component of the price tag. Aside from cost it is also
true that many men consider gold jewelry to be loud and flashy, silver men's pendants
have an appearance that is composed and quiet. One more important thing is that, most
men would wear their initial pendant inside their shirts thus not being visible outside. So the choice of gold or
silver men's initial pendants can be based on what you like and what your budget
permits. A silver initial pendant could obviously include better metal weight as
compared to a gold pendant because, silver is more modestly priced. The gold color
for your men's initial pendant is something that you will need to decide. White
and yellow gold would look great, or you could try something different by getting
a two tone gold initial pendant. The outer portion of the initial pendant could be
made in white gold while the initial itself could be made in yellow gold, or vice
versa. Remember that the hardness of a 14k initial pendant would be more than a
similar pendant in 18k gold. This means that the 14k men's gold initial pendant
would be sturdier than an 18k initial pendant. When talking of a yellow or white gold
initial pendant, the hardness would remain the same as long as you make a comparison
within the same gold karatage.
Initial Pendant Dimensions
: We made a mention of pendant dimensions above but will
provide some more details here. You could say that men's initial pendants would be
larger than initial pendants worn by ladies. When it comes to large men's pendants,
we would recommend that anything beyond 2 inches would classify as a very big pendant.
While some men's pendants could be 4 inches or even larger, make sure that you like
such big jewels before buying one. Regarding a small men's initial pendant, we would
presume that a size that is smaller than an inch might appear too tiny. Keep this
information in mind and then follow your personal likes and dislikes. Weight details
are discussed below so make sure that, the weight of your gold or sterling silver
men's initial pendant is proportionate to the dimensions. Cross check the pendant
dimensions you choose with the budget that you have alloted for the pendant.
The MPN10 is a fully custom made men's pendant, you can therefore choose the dimensions of your initial pendant.
The above sketch shows the dimensions and proportions for the standard version of the Kaisilver men's initial
pendant. Specific price quotes will be provided for custom initial pendants where, the requested dimensions
differ from those shown in the sketch. The price table on this page refers to the pendant with the above dimensions.
: The metal weight of your men's initial pendant is important in more ways than one.
Men's jewelry should look strong and sturdy, a light weight initial pendant would appear
quite flimsy. If you are thinking of a gold initial pendant chances are that a large pendant
would stretch your budget, this is due to the price of gold. If you prefer gold as a metal
for your men's pendant keep the dimensions in check. A large pendant with a low gold weight
would easily deform or dent. While it is true that pendants do not get as much wear and tear
as rings, it is equally true that men take far less care of their jewelry as compared to ladies.
Good metal weight would help to increase the strength of the pendant and reduce the
chances of it bending. A silver initial men's pendant would wear a more modest price
tag even after providing a healthy metal weight. When considering pendant dimensions,
do not forget to relate the dimensions to the metal weight of the jewel. There is no
weight that can be described as a standard but in general, give a deep thought if
a 1.5 inch to 2 inch men's initial pendant weighs less than 15 to 20 grams. You might
come across low weight gold or sterling silver initial pendants that look smart and
imposing from the front, flip the pendant around and you will most likely see a big
hollow at the back. Remember that a pendant is quite likely to flip around when worn,
so a tidy back side would be a big plus.
Plain Or Studded Pendants
: An initial pendant could be plain with no gems or diamonds. You can add interest to
a plain men's initial pendant by selecting a dull or brushed finish. A portion of the
men's pendant could be high polished and the remaining completed with a dull finish.
Antiquing on initial pendants is generally more common in silver pendants. We already
mentioned above that two tone gold would also be a good option for your men's pendant.
Since the initial on your pendant is basically an alphabet, the font that you choose
can also enhance the appearance of the jewel. If you are interested in a studded pendant,
we would suggest that you limit the number of gems or diamonds in the pendant to one
or two pieces or at least no more than four. A men's birth stone initial pendant could
be made with a single gemstone (birth stone) either in the center of the alphabet or
on the area just below the bale. The size and shape of the gem stone or diamond would
be based on the design and dimensions of the jewel. A few gems can be very expensive
as the gem stone size increases, so discuss requirements with your jeweler. You will
ofcourse need to make sure that the gem stone or diamond in your initial pendant is
mounted firmly. The sketch shown below provides a good suggestion, for the placement
of a diamond or gem stone in your gold or 925 silver initial pendant.
