Characteristics of Solitaire NecklacesWhat does “solitaire” mean when it’s applied to necklaces? It refers to the idea of making an entire necklace focused around a single jewel, crafting the metal and design to draw eyes toward the natural beauty of the gem that’s been selected. But beyond the simple pendants that may have typified the solitaire necklace style in previous centuries, contemporary designers have taken advantage of modern metals, jewels, and avant-garde ideas to create solitaire necklaces that really dazzle the sensibilities of any woman. Here at Jewelry Design Center, we have a showcase stocked full of some of the most beautiful solitaire necklaces in the market.
Popular Solitaire Necklace Collections at Jewelry Design CenterOur collections of solitaire necklaces are produced by arthouse designer Tacori. Their fashion jewelry takes advantage of a rainbow of different gemstones, placing them in a nest of 925 sterling silver that accentuates the color of the jewel in surprising ways. Take, for example, the Island Rains collection. Made with rich blue jewels, such as blue topaz, turquoise, and blue amethyst, the sterling silver frames around them range from flower-like settings, bold quadrilaterals, and even asymmetric circles within circles. Truly a modern collection for modern tastes, and when paired with Tacori’s iconic hidden hearts design engraved in the necklaces, you have a one-of-a-kind treasure.
Another elegant solitaire necklace line from Tacori is the Horizon Shine collection. Horizon Shine solitaire necklaces are typified by taking long cuts of gemstone, such as emerald-cut and pear-cut, and unexpectedly turning them on their side. A simple touch ends up being truly refined, and the gems that Tacori selects, like opalescent labradorite and misty-blue chalcedony, turn heads on their own. The prong setting and small accent diamonds serve the purpose of drawing out the natural beauty of the jewels. Altogether, the Horizon Shine necklaces are the closest you can get to having a glorious jewel floating against your heart.
