At times we are asked - What is a lanyard?

At Lanyard Elegance, we design beautiful jewelry lanyards for the professional woman. But, what is a lanyard?

It is a cord or strap that is worn around the neck to hold an identification badge, whistle, keys or other small object. You can see them in use everywhere by businesses, schools, hospitals, at special events, conventions, reunions, and in many recreational activities.Some use a lanyard to hold business cards during conventions or large craft shows.

Lanyards can also be used as an advertising tool with a customized logo or name printed on the strap. They come in various colors and types with different hardware attached at the bottom for holding an ID badge, whistle or the like.

Lanyards can be made of cord, cotton, nylon or polyester twill. The cord type is the least expensive but cannot be printed because it lacks the flat surface of the strap-type. Some have a small bulb containing a retractable reel to use with an ID badge or keys. They might also have breakaway connectors so that if the lanyard gets caught it will release before it pulls on the neck.

The strap-type lanyards can be made of cotton, polytwill or nylon and are often printed with a company or team name, product or logo. There are generally three different printing methods used: hot stamping, or dye sublimation.

But, the best lanyard is a beaded jewelry lanyard designed by Lanyard Elegance. They are beautiful jewelry to compliment your professional wardrobe.  We use Swarovski Crystals and comfort rolo chain at the neckline instead of beads.  No hair pulling, no tangling and much more style and beauty with our beautiful chain. 

We hand craft each lanyard using the finest Czech and Swarovski crystals in each design. Each lanyard is crimped eight times for durability. Lanyard Elegance lanyards are all 32” to 33” long, support heavy weight and will not break if you catch them on an item. Our lanyards are used for holding multiple types of ID badges, keys, whistles, crafting scissors and reading glasses. Lanyards are great for aging parents that require the extra security of carrying their identification badge or charm more visibly.

They are each quality tested by Lanyard Elegance owners, Silvia and Suzie and will last a very long time.
