GUIDE TO NECKLACE STYLES
We love wearing necklaces and we can’t get enough of them to add to our jewelry collection. There are many designs in women’s necklaces and this guide will explain the different styles available to make your necklace shopping experience easier!
WHERE DID NECKLACES COME FROM?
People have been wearing some form of jewelry since the dawn of civilization. The earliest finding of jewelry was dated around 25,000 years ago. A simple necklace made of fish bones was found in a cave in Monaco. What did this necklace signify?
In early societies, jewelry was worn as amulets to protect against bad luck and illness or as talismans to give the wearer vitality and good luck. Wearing necklaces became popular with the ever so stylish ancient Egyptians and we have been wearing them for a variety of reasons ever since then.
Although most people wear necklaces to adorn themselves, a necklace around your neck can mean more than decorating oneself. Necklaces have been associated with high status, authority, memberships in secret society or clubs and sororities, and also an achievement of some sort.
