Since 2006, men have been able to show their loved ones how much they mean to them with the Journey diamond pendant. This trend has become very popular, but what exactly is this piece of sentimental jewelry?
Love captured in a diamond
It consists of a cascading “S” of diamonds dripping from a necklace. The stones are graduated in size with the smallest at the top and the largest at the bottom. This graduation of stones signifies your love as it grows over time. The sinuous pendant represents the journey a couple embarks on from first love to lasting love and all experiences in between.
Different styles of expression.
While the traditional piece is the dangling “S” pendant, there are other designs that can be used to commemorate a special occasion. A diamond heart travel pendant is a beautiful way to express love and travel at the same time. In this design, one side of the heart is usually made of graduated stones, while the other side is plain.
There are also circles that connect and spirals that don’t. Each couple can attach their own meanings to these sentimental pieces of jewelry. To make the pendant even more special, instead of all diamonds, use diamonds and your birthstone to create the journey.
Is it the same as past, present and future jewelry?
The concept of a travel pendant is similar to past, present, and future jewelry, but there are a few differences. PPF consists of only three stones, one for each phase of life. The journey, however, is long and winding. So this type of jewelry consists of at least four stones, but usually many more than that. Also, the PPF may or may not use graduated stones. The whole concept of this pendant is the growth of love, so the stones are always graduated.
How to care for these special pieces
A diamond travel pendant is easy to clean. It can be soaked in warm soapy water and then scrubbed with a soft toothbrush to remove residue. If the chain is gold, it can be cleaned in the same way. Just be careful not to tangle the chain.
If the chain is made of sterling silver, use a silver cleaner to remove any tarnished spots. The best way to store a travel pendant is to hang it on a hook. This is the best way to keep this and all other necklaces from getting tangled up in the jewelry box.
Creating this commemorative piece of jewelry makes it easy for a man to go shopping for a birthday, engagement or anniversary gift. All they have to do is add the words and the jewelry does the rest. He tells her that she is special and loved.
A Journey diamond pendant is also a great family heirloom. Passed down from generation to generation, the story of a beautiful journey of life and love follows the piece and new stories are added to it as its meaning grows. Diamonds and love last forever.
