Necklaces Jewelry Information

Back The base of the neck is a great place to be embellished on the human body. Via necklaces, the face can be enhanced, the curves of the shoulders underlined and the bust adorned.
  Paleolithic remains from 30,000 B.C. indicate that some of the first necklaces were made of strings of perforated shells, carved bone, fish vertebrae, animal teeth, claws and stone beads that were polished and drilled.
  Throughout history there have been many different styles and designs of the necklace depending mostly on contemporary fashion. Here are some examples of the various styles (which can also be found in our collection - links below):
  The Choker - lockets and long chains which were popular during the late 19th century. 
  Sautoirs - long ribbon necklaces or pearls with tassels.
  Festoon necklaces - which made a lace-like pattern produced by a series of chains
  Dog-Collar - along with other fringed necklaces.
  Book Chain necklaces - with detachable pendant brooches,  gothic-style crosses, machine-stamped brass, lovely enamel and Bohemian glass.
  The Lavaliere - a type of necklace that has a pendant suspended from a long chain or has 2 pendants attached to a chain with a center-sliding motif; and others fashioned the lariat style where two pendants, overlapped, hang in different lengths.
