Crystals have been beloved for centuries for their energetic properties that inspire similar effects in the user. Although many people keep crystals in their homes or carry them in their pockets, keeping them close and showing them off in a crystal cage necklace is even better! Plus, you don’t have to believe in the energetic capabilities of crystals to enjoy their exquisite beauty and the colorful accent they add to any outfit.
When selecting a cage necklace for your crystal, you’ll want to think about a few things. One of the most important is the material, especially if you have sensitive skin. You can learn more about sterling silver – a popular choice for people with sensitive skin – in our article Do Stainless Steel Necklaces Rust or Tarnish? You’ll also want to consider the style, as some have ornate decorations and others are a straightforward wire spiral. Finally, you’ll need to consider the size and make sure it works for the crystals you’d like to wear.
Getting your crystal inside the cage is simple. Most cages are designed to expand enough to slip the crystal between the wires, and then contract to hold it securely in place. Others have a hinge on either the side or the bottom edge and open like a door, making it easy to put a crystal inside and snap the cage closed.
In this article, we’ve collected some of the best crystal cages available. Some of them even come in multi-packs, enabling you to give some to friends or create necklaces using each of your crystals. Many include the crystal cage so you can use your crystals to fill it, while others come with a set of crystals designed to fit the necklace perfectly. Most of these examples do not include a chain, so you can have fun finding the perfect necklace length for you. Check out our article 25+ Types of Necklaces [Inc. Examples] to get some ideas!
