Necklaces have been a known form of jewelry since time immemorial. The oldest found necklaces are believed to be over 40000 years old. They were made of purely natural materials like animal bones and teeth, bird feathers, beautiful stones or naturally occurring gems.

In the modern world, custom design necklaces are casted in fine metals and mounted with beautiful gemstones or even inscribed with calligraphy.

Women necklaces vary by length from short to long ones. For example, a princess necklace is 45 to 50 cm long; opera necklace is 75 to 90 cm long and sits at the breastbone.
