Necklaces are a fashion accessory that is worn around the neck. They were one of the first types of adornments worn by humans. They can be used as symbols of status and wealth or for religious, funerary, ceremonial purposes. The main element of the necklace is the cord, the chain, or band that is wraps or dangles loosely around the neck. This can be made from metals like gold, silver, copper, and platinum or plastic, cloth, and other materials.
Necklaces also have other attachments that are inserted or suspended from the band. This can include lockets, pendants, amulets, crosses and other precious gems like emeralds, sapphires, rubies, pearls, and diamonds. Some types of necklaces that you can choose from include chokers, matinee, opera, rope, or lariat.
