7 Pendant Styles that Make for Icy Winter Jewelry
Winter’s around the corner, which means we’re adding long sleeves to our fits and bundling up a bit more than usual. Whether you’re planning for a big holiday gathering or you just want to look your best on the daily, you shouldn’t let a bulkier getup create an obstacle to showcasing your unique personality and sense of style.
If you’re looking to upgrade your fits this winter, consider adding a pendant and a matching chain that you can wear over your sweater or sweatshirt on a cold day. To help get you started, we’ve compiled a list of 7 of our favorite wintertime pendant styles that you’ll only find here at GLD.
Let’s start with one of the most timeless staples in our selection: the cross.
1: Keep it Fresh Year-Round with a Traditional Cross
Whether you admire traditional symbols or hold a deep personal faith, the cross is a timeless staple that represents devotion, love, and sacrifice for others. Finished in white gold for a true icy sheen, it’s the perfect pendant style for both men and women for holiday gatherings and can be dressed up or down for any occasion from holiday parties to a morning at home exchanging gifts.
2: Be Ready for Gametime, Anytime with an Official NBA Pendant
Basketball is the can’t-miss sport during the winter. Watching the game’s most elite talent put up highlight-reel-worthy points night in and night out keeps us all entertained even on the slowest, darkest, and coldest times of the year.
At GLD, we teamed up with the National Basketball Association to create the official NBA Team Pendants Collection. Pairing our signature hand-setting process with the league’s iconic franchise logos, you can have that perfect drip ready for any game, whether sitting courtside or watching at home all winter long.
3: Get in a Festive Mood with the Hamsah
The hand-shaped hamsah symbol represents good fortune, happiness, and health for all those who wear it. It’s the perfect gift for someone you love or a statement piece that you can wear when in the company of those who matter most to you.
The wintertime is when families come together to reconnect after a long spring and summer. Bring a positive vibe to everyone around you with a piece that radiates an unmistakable shine.
4: Bring the Icy Thunder with Thor’s Hammer
As the most famous deity in Norse mythology, Thor is perhaps best known for his mighty hammer. In modern times, he’s become more associated with his counterpart in the Marvel Universe as one of Earth-616’s mightiest heroes.
Thor was first conceptualized in a region of the world known for its beautiful, icy landscapes. As such, the God of Thunder himself is also heavily associated with wintery imagery and settings covered in snow.
We joined forces with Marvel to create an official, comics-accurate replica of Thor’s hammer Mjolnir. Plated in 14k white gold, it brings a shine that reflects light brighter than a fresh snowfall or an intense flash of lightning.
5: Let Everyone Know the New Year is Your Year
After a long 365 days, you’re ready to begin the new year with a renewed mindset and goals. No one can stop you in your pursuit of what you want in life, and it’s time to let the world know that you’re unshakable.
If that’s how you’re feeling ahead of January 1, the World In Your Hands Pendant is for you. Get ready to tap your limitless potential with an immaculate style that will stand out from the rest.
6: Rep Your Winter Zodiac
Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are the three zodiac signs most associated with the winter months. Beyond birthdays during this time falling under these three, they also respectively are earth, air, and water signs which symbolize the season.
Zodiac pendants are perfect for showcasing your personality. You can also pair them with a special someone else’s sign as a symbol of love or friendship.
7: Bring the Ice for Wintertime
Sometimes, you just want to rock the iciest piece in the game. We love shine, and we know that in some situations, nothing makes a better statement than just a simple, straightforward pendant that’s as iced out as possible.
If you’re someone that appreciates large stones, the Iced Rock Pendant was made for you. Featuring one large stone with many other smaller ones surrounding it, you can catch immense amounts of light that will be sure to turn heads everywhere you go. It’s also available in a heart shape.
Prefer the finer texture of smaller stones? We got you. The Iced Cube pendant is designed to be just that: a cube fully flooded in icy hand-set stones. If you want more of a shimmering effect, this one brings it up to another level unlike any other.
Last but far from the least, if you’re a fan of traditional pendant styles, you can’t go wrong with an Iced Dog Tag. Using the traditional military shape as a template, we put our own spin on it with 18k gold plating and a thorough covering of stones. The flat surface also helps to create a one-of-a-kind aesthetic and sheen all its own.
Bring it All Together with a Unique Chain
Once you’ve picked that perfect pendant for your wintertime fits, complete the look with a chain as unique as your own sense of style. Some ideas to stand out from the rest include:
The GLD G-Link Chain: The original GLD G-Link Chain is designed with unique, G-shaped links that are fully flooded in hand-set stones over white gold plating for the iciest shine in the game. As a bonus, G-Link owners get exclusive access to GLD drops and events, and we’ll buy your drinks if we see you rocking it in public.
Enamel Box Chain: The Enamel Box Chain adds just the perfect amount of color on the surface of each link. With a white gold-plated surface and multicolored enamel carefully arranged throughout, you’re sure to maek a statement that no one else can replicate.
Cloister Link Chain: The Cloister Link Chain adds a sharp edge to any fit. Diamond-shaped links and hand-set stones create a stark contrast that catches both light and the gaze of others wherever you wear it.
Micro-Clustered Tennis Necklace: The Micro-Clustered Tennis Necklace was built with shine in mind. Each stone is carefully placed by hand and positioned to catch maximum light in any setting. If you want a shine that truly enhances the ice on your pendant, look no further.
