Characteristics of Necklaces
A necklace is a band, chain, or cord that wraps around the neck. Flexible chains may be made of precious metals, beads, pearls, gemstones, or natural materials. More inflexible bands may be formed of metal and embellished with gemstones, beads, pearls, or engravings. Additional attachments include pendants, lockets, and crosses, some of which are adorned with precious stones like diamonds, pearls, and sapphires. Lengths range from short chokers or collars to a long string of beads called a sautoir that may hang past the waist. Historically, adorning one’s neck has been used to signify wealth, power, prestige, affiliation, competence, and social position.
