The pressure to find the perfect present for someone you care about can be overwhelming. But, if the person you’re buying a gift for has a particular sense of style, it’s always a great idea to invest in something they’ll love but may not want to spend the money on themselves.

A dope personalized chain makes for a great present between friends and family that share the same style, but it’s more often romantic partners who give each other personalized gold chains to their significant others as a symbol of their love for the other person. No matter who you’re thinking about buying a 14K gold chain for, it’s a unique item that they’ll keep with them for years to come.

Personalization Is Special 

One of the reasons that personalized gold chains are so popular as a gift is because of that personal element—it shows that an extra bit of care was taken during the gift-buying process. As humans, we like to feel as if we’re being acknowledged. Receiving a gift with your name or a special personalized phrase which means something to you helps to do just that. In fact, there’s a whole psychological study into the idea of personalization and why we crave it so much.

The right custom gold chain and pendant set should tell your significant other that you love them, you know what they like, and you see them. What could be a better gift than that? Selecting a pendant that has some personal connection to the person receiving the gift is always a way to make the gift personal even without a custom design.

Two Gifts in One

For anyone who considers him- or herself to be a hip hop jewelry collector, receiving a gold chain and pendant set is almost like getting two gifts at once. Gold chains are often worn without the addition of a gold pendant for an everyday look or layered around the neck with other chains. The avid jewelry collector usually has an array of gold chains in different lengths, colors, and thicknesses that he or she likes to mix and match with different pendants. So, giving a personalized gold chain and pendant set allows them to be even more versatile in their accessories.

How to Pick Out the Perfect Pendant and Gold Chain

  • Look at What He or She Already Has

Before making a purchase, you should do a little digging. Try to check out what kind of jewelry the other person already has. This will help you avoid buying something too similar and may give you a better sense of the style of jewelry to look for. Take note of which types of gold he or she already has. Maybe you’ll want to look for a piece in a type of metal that they don’t already own many of—like rose gold or white gold.

  • Select the Type of Gold

When purchasing gold or gold-plated jewelry, there are several factors to consider. Solid-filled gold jewelry will be more expensive but will also probably last longer, as gold-plated jewelry will begin to wear down eventually. However, gold-plated jewelry is less expensive and still looks just as fly. You should also consider the purity of the gold, which is denoted by karats.

Gold jewelry is broken down into 24 “parts.” Pure gold jewelry is 24K, a very rare type of jewelry, as pure gold is far too malleable to hold its shape without becoming damaged. More commonly, you’ll see 10K, 14K, or 18K. The number next to the “K” tells how many parts are pure gold, so 14K gold chains are 14 parts gold, 14 parts metal alloys mixed together to help the jewelry gold its shape.
