The history of necklaces tracks back to 40,000 years, during the Stone Age. The oldest necklaces were made of purely natural materials and included colorful and interesting natural elements. Metal chain as we know it didn't become possible until the Bronze Age, and necklaces became more elaborate in the second century A.D. when assorted gems were introduced. Gem cutting techniques developed during the Renaissance led to the first solitaire style pendants, which have been a classic jewelry element for centuries.
