10 Snowflake Necklace Picks!
1. Amanda Rose Collection Snowflake Pendant-Necklace
Both chain and pendant are 925 sterling silver
When most people think of snowflakes they picture the common snowflake pattern called stellar dendrite. This snowflake necklace is that type.Read more
It’s made of .925 sterling silver and has the stamp for authenticity. In the center is a diamond-shaped aqua colored crystal. It’s set with four prongs.
There is one at each point as well as six arms extending from the center.
The arms extend outward and branch off to the left and right. In the crux of where they separate sits an oval, aqua-colored crystal set with two prongs.
Between each arm is a beautiful clear oval crystal while at the end of the arm there is another gorgeous blue crystal.
This means you get a total of 7 light blue crystals and 6 super sparkly clear-colored crystals!
The cable chain attaches behind one of the blue oval crystals adorning the outer line of the snowflake design and leads to a spring-ring clasp. This really is a very pretty piece!
This icy looking necklace doesn’t have a freezing price tag though. At an upper affordable price point, this piece would make a great gift!
The pendant is about the size of a dim while the chain is 18 inches long.

It’s a smaller version of the stellar dendrite pattern we are accustomed to seeing for snowflakes. The piece is made from 925 sterling silver with the stamp of authenticity.
The silver design of this snowflake has a slightly “chunkier” look. We like that since this also means more sparkles!

First, it has three chain and they aren’t all the same. Secondly, the pendant is larger than most, giving this piece the ability to make a statement.

8. SERAFINA ❤️ Womens Pendant Necklace
925 Italian box chain
Highest quality lab simulated sapphires

At the center of this sterling silver snowflake is a round, lab simulated white sapphire, in a four prong setting. Surrounding it are a multitude of smaller sapphire stones in illusion settings.
At the top, there is a jump ring that attaches to a bale. The bale is covered in the white sapphires as well and each are held by four prong settings.
There is a 925 sterling silver box chain and a super sturdy lobster claw clasp.
While you may be thinking that lab simulated white sapphires may not be the real deal, keep in mind that lab created sapphires are an ethical alternative to real diamonds and if you ask us, these stones are just as sparkly as any diamond out there.
This snowflake necklace has an upper/mid price point but considering the number of sapphire stones on it and how pretty it is, it's worth every penny!

Criteria for Evaluation
We have quite a few criteria we use while picking our pieces. For these picks, the main criterion was that these pieces had to be gorgeous looking!
We wanted to show you pieces that were pretty and attractive. Let’s face it…if your snowflake necklaces don’t look amazing and sparkly, you won’t wear them.
We wanted pieces that were going to look great on you and reflect your personal style.
Another criterion was ease of wear and comfort. We didn’t show you anything too heavy and in fact, all picks are the total opposite.
We made sure to select items that are easy to put on and take off, sit comfortably around your neck, and feature good quality chains that won't scratch your skin.
The last aspect was durability. We wanted to bring you items that were durable and sturdy. We made sure to pick pieces of jewelry made of quailty materials which are tear-proof.
So we wanted pieces that will last you a long time. Nothing brings more satisfaction than getting a good deal.
These items will give you great value for the money you will spend. When cared for properly, any pick on our list will flatter you, wear well and last a long time.
Uma Thurman wore a bedazzled cross and snowflake necklace to The Met Gala recently. Quavo purchased a snowflake necklace for Saweetie.
Meghan Markle owns snowflake jewelry, and Seventeen Magazine has featured it in one of their publications.
Leighton Meester, of Gossip Girl, wore a snowflake necklace in the April 1, 2010 episode entitled, “The Empire Strikes Jack”.
Now the good news is you don’t need to be a star to rock one. Each snowflake is made from a speck of dust, and is totally unique.
Since we realize the weather isn’t the same wherever you go, we are going to offer you tips for various climates and clothing types. Just browse our next slide!
Let’s start with a t-shirt. Most of our picks can be worn with a simple t-shirt. It will dress it up a bit. We suggest picks 2, 3 and 5 for casual wear.
Then, we’ll suggest you wear it with a blouse. Wear it to the office or just around town. Don’t forget about a dress.
For example, item 6 on our list is perfect with a simple dress all the way to a more formal dress.
Whatever you do, don’t forget about layering. If you’re wearing something without a collar, layering is the ticket for a look that makes more of a statement.
One more suggestion is to combine pendants. If you want your piece to look a bit like a charm bracelet, add a couple more pendants to it.
For example, combine more snowflake pendants on one single chain. We love the idea of mixing up items 2, 4 and 10!
q: How does a snowflake form?
It’s all pretty complicated, but to try and put it in simple words, a snowflake forms around a dust particle and attracts water droplets. They freeze in a crystal form as the flake moves through the atmosphere.
The differing temperatures and humidity give the snowflake varying shapes.
q: What is the arm of a snowflake called?
The arm of a snowflake is called the dendrite.
q: Is it true that no two snowflakes are alike?
Yes, it is true. While all snowflakes fall into certain categories, they are all different.
q: Can you wear snowflake jewelry in the summertime?
Yes, by all means, wear your pieces in the summer!
Many pendants people choose to wear reflect their love of a certain theme.
q: What does hypoallergenic mean?
Hypoallergenic means that the piece of jewelry is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction.
q: What is an illusion setting?
An illusion setting is the way a ring is constructed making the stone look bigger. It’s shaped like the gem it’s reflecting, making it look bigger.
If you want a bigger diamond but can’t afford it, opt for an illusion setting.
A snowflake is an ice crystal that has grown and attached itself to others. While all that seems complicated, choosing a snowflake necklace from our fantastic list is no chore at all.
We made sure to pick jewelry pieces we would wear ourselves and, a few of our team members have added some picks to their Christmas shopping list. We suggest you do the same before these gorgeous yet affordable necklaces sell out.
A snowflake takes time to form. You, however, will take no time at all to sparkle and shine with the necklaces featured above!
