Necklaces can be a pure gold or silver chain or even a length of beads and gems, but as long as it is worn around the neck, it is called a necklace. The word necklace came from the combined word neck with lace, which means string or cord. Necklaces are believed to be the earliest kind of jewelry adornment worn by people. These kinds of jewelry often symbolize different meanings and purposes and were used for ceremonial or religious celebrations. Even symbols of wealth and status are commonly depicted through necklaces when attention is given to the precious metals and embellished stones they are made of. Like all jewelry, necklaces are seen as essential decorations for the body of the person wearing them.
