Ancient and Antique Pendants

Pendants are decorations which are typically used in jewelry, where they are often hung from a necklace. They have many meanings and designs, some of which are detailed and intricate, where others are simple and to the point. A pendant may have meaning or some type of sentimental value to the wearer, or it may be simply used to complement fashion.

As ornaments, pendants have been used for thousands of years, often as a means of attracting the opposite sex, or demonstrating wealth or status. Pendants can be used to indicate beliefs (such as religion), and even sexual status and orientation. Rappers have been using larger than life pendants (often made of expensive jewels and diamonds) with their initials, or even their entire names displayed very brightly.

In some cultures, pendants take on more than just beauty or religious or sexual meanings. They can be used as a means of warding off spirits (evil or otherwise), although that's more about superstition, which I do not care to touch on.

Nearly anything can be used as a pendant, regardless of its origins or meaning. Simply put, there are a lot of pendants out there that are completely off the wall, which may appear to be vulgar or immature, or grand and a fine example of the dangers of consumerism and social status. At the end of the day, just enjoy what you are wearing and try to get some enjoyment out of it! Who cares what others think. So long as you are happy, that is all that matters.
