You just got engaged! Congratulations! You're also drowning in a sea of possible bridesmaids dresses and are terrified of the cost. So, you get on google "how to make a diamond necklace" and this is your first article that comes up. You've come to the right place. We're here to teach you how to make a diamond necklace step by step so that you can put your DIY skills to good use! Here's how you can make a beaded diamond necklace out of common household items.

Select Your Diamonds

Selecting your diamonds is the most important step in making a diamond necklace. You may have a specific design in mind, or you may find inspiration online. If you’re not sure what you want, start browsing for ideas by looking at our selection of diamond necklaces.

Once you’ve got an idea of what kind of necklace you want, the next step is to choose the diamonds that will make it come to life. Remember that larger diamonds are more expensive per carat than smaller diamonds. This means that your budget will likely determine how many diamonds you can use and how big they can be.

Determine Which Setting You Need

There are dozens of ways to set diamonds and other gemstones into a necklace, but the most important decision you'll make when it comes to setting your stones is whether they will be prong-set or bezel-set.

Prong settings use metal prongs to hold a stone in place, and are characterized by allowing the maximum amount of light to shine through the stones. They're also prone to damage because the metal prongs that hold the stone in place can bend or break under pressure.

Bezel settings use a narrow band of metal that wraps around the stone at its edges, and are more secure because there's no metal touching the top surface of the stone. However, this also means that less light is able to pass through a bezel-set stone.

Discuss The Details Of Your Diamond Necklace With Us (Bespoke vs. Stock)

If you are not looking at investing in a bespoke diamond necklace, we will introduce you to our entire collection of pendants and necklaces, which can be bought as is or customized by your requirements.

Once you have decided on a piece of jewelry, we will ask you to choose the diamonds from our inventory. You can also bring your own diamonds or gemstones with you for us to use in the design. Our team will then create a 3D computer-aided design for your necklace and take you through it step by step.

After the design has been finalized, it is the time to choose the metal used in your necklace. We offer gold in all three colors – rose gold, yellow gold, and white gold – and platinum as well.

Once the design is finalized and payment has been collected, we will start working on your diamond necklace. It takes our expert jewelers around 3 to 6 weeks to craft your jewelry, depending on its complexity.
