Necklaces through history
We humans have always been instinctively passionate about beauty and wearing a necklace is a beautiful adornment. This piece of jewellery can be dated back to the Stone Age where they were made purely of natural materials like durable vines, bird feathers, colourful seeds etc. As time progressed into the Bronze Age, man discovered metal and soon began casting necklaces out of metals like gold, silver, copper etc. And so the age of neck jewellery advanced to making much more intricate and valuable ones, such as platinum necklaces and pearl necklaces.
Soon they became a symbol for various things like a mark of royalty, social status, a charm, a religious medallion and the obvious, a fashion accessory.
