Trending Necklace Styles for the Fashion-Forward

Women tend to have a fondness for necklaces as they are a beautiful expression of their femininity. Considered to be valuable jewels and worn by humans for centuries now, these ornaments have a long history dating back to 4200 BCE, when they predominantly consisted of organic materials like feathers and shells.

In the 14th century, necklaces were embellished with gold and gems to signify fortune, influence, and prestige. Diamond-encrusted pendants became popular as soon as the hip-hop music emerged, and their popularity continued to grow with time. Today, there are countless necklace styles that can go with one’s all ensembles. The right style will accentuate your neckline and draw all the attention to it, bringing a sophisticated and graceful look to your attire.

Growing Popularity of Lab Diamond Necklaces

Lab diamonds are becoming rapidly popular owing to consumers’ increased awareness about ethical violations prevalent in the diamond mining industry. Created using innovative technologies to simulate pressure and temperature conditions in which natural diamonds are formed, they possess the same physical, chemical, and visual characteristics as mined diamonds. Lab diamonds don't cause land degradation, deforestation, or other environmental impacts infamously linked with natural diamonds. Yet, they are equally as stunning and durable.

Traditional diamonds are also relatively expensive given their scarcity and arduous mining processes essential for extraction. On the other hand, lab diamonds present as a more affordable alternative that retain their gemstone qualities and look magnificent. Hence, lab diamond necklaces offer the opportunity to give a lovely, high-end gift without going over the budget.

They even adorned them on red carpets while adding them to their personal collections all the way. Among them are prominent personalities like Julia Roberts, Penélope Cruz, Emma Watson, Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Kacey Musgraves. Due to their outstanding brilliance, cut, and sparkle, lab diamonds are precious objects that are worth treasuring for everyone.
