When choosing jewelry to wear to the office, you will want to make sure you are wearing something that is both attractive and appropriate for your workplace. Whether you realize it or not, your jewelry makes a strong statement about who you are.

Most people would agree that it is probably best to play it safe when it comes to jewelry at the work place, especially when it is a new job and you are working on establishing yourself. Conservative earrings, necklaces and rings still allow you to add in some style in your office fashion, but stop short of going overboard.


Of all jewelry that one could wear to work, perhaps none is more appropriate and makes a stronger statement than a pendant. Pendants are known as one of the oldest forms of adornment and have served a variety of uses. Often combined with necklaces, bracelets and other types of jewelry, pendants can be used in unlimited shapes, sizes, designs and colors. 

Here are 4 examples of how to best wear a pendant in a professional setting:

1. Classic Diamond


Nothing is more traditional than wearing diamonds. Diamonds seem to speak to everyone, no matter how old or what their background. A sparkling diamond pendant on the end of necklace is an excellent way to make a confident statement in the office. We suggest you stick with something fairly modest and not too large when wearing a diamond pendant to the office. Larger diamonds should be reserved for more formal occasions.

2. Sapphires and Diamonds.


Sapphires are known as one of the most gorgeous and popular gemstone in today’s jewelry market. A pendant that combines both a sapphire with diamonds is sure to draw the attention you are looking for. The nice thing about a pendant like this is that you can turn right around and wear for a night out after work.

3. Pearl Pendant


Another combination that is sure to impress would be a pearl and diamond pendant. Dark pearls, such as the Mikimoto Tahitian that we carry here at Hamra, create a striking contrast when combined with even small diamonds. As with the other pendants already mentioned, a pearl pendant makes just enough of a statement at work without being too flashy.

4. Charm Pendant 


When your goal is to subtly tell a story of who you are and where you came from, a clean and simple charm pendant can be of assistance. We offer a wide selection of charm pendants at Hamra that can be worn to work and help others learn more about you.
