The History of Necklaces
The necklace is a timeless piece of jewellery now available in a wide variety of styles that are sure to complement any outfit - but where did this staple piece of jewellery that we all know so well come from?
Initially made from natural shells and stones, necklaces have been a firm favourite since the dawn of civilisation. As tools evolved, the oh-so-stylish stone necklace was replaced with something perhaps more relatable to our style today - beads. Glass bead necklaces were very popular with the ancient Egyptians before evolving into pendants that were expertly carved from pottery.
