Whether you plan on buying a new gold pendant for the chain of a loved one or you are looking for pendants and charms which you can add to the gold chain which you are buying, it is important that you give this some real thought and get the choice right first time. When buying these pieces you need to think about what kind of person you are buying for, what kind of thing they will like and how your choice may work well with their character type. There are some common choices which you should think about first before you head out shopping for that perfect piece.
A real favorite when it comes to charms and pendants is a solid gold cross, not only do these pieces look classy, they are also very fashionable and many people love to have a cross around their neck. There are two types of people who wear crosses around their necks, some like it because they see famous celebs and sports stars wearing it and others do so for religious purposes. Those who do so based on their beliefs feel very proud to wear such an iconic image around their neck and they say that they feel it as a source of strength.
St. Christopher is the patron saint of travelers and also the patron saint of lost causes, both are things which people can easily relate to. If the person you are buying for likes to travel then this would be a great addition to their chain and it can offer them some protection on their travels. In terms of lost causes the choice will be yours as to whether or not you think that this pendant can help the person who you are buying it for.
Sovereigns are weighty coins which are made of pure gold and they make for an incredibly memorable gift. Beyond the value of the piece which will rise and fall in line with the cost of gold, these are pendants which people wear day-in and day-out. Some people like to have a sovereign on a ring to wear but in the main they are far better suited to hanging on the end of a gold chain. Sovereigns can be bought second hand or alternatively they are still being produced by the Royal Mint and you can buy one directly from there.
Monogram pendants aren’t as popular as they once were but there are still a great many people who like to have their initials hanging around their neck. In many cases people would prefer to have the initials of someone else around their neck so if you are in any doubt then don’t be afraid to have a conversation with the person who you are buying it for, to see what they would prefer on a pendant.
These are just some of the most common choices for pendants and charms but in truth you can buy anything that you like to hang on the gold chain, the choice is yours.
