For thousands of years, people have been adorning themselves with jewelry. The earliest necklaces were made from whatever could be found lying around. Beads were made from rocks and pebbles. Some cultures made necklaces from the teeth and claws of their prey. Luckily, times have changed and there is a huge selection to choose from in the world of necklaces.
Classic styles include gold and pendant necklaces. Because of their simplicity, they stand the test of time and make a great gift for any occasion. A diamond solitaire necklace is also a classic style that goes with anything. A plain gold necklace can be dressed up or down with the addition of a charm or pendant which gives the wearer many different looks from one piece.
Bead necklaces are also very versatile. They can come in plastic, glass or metal and easily go from casual to dressy depending on the outfit. Silver necklaces are relatively inexpensive and offer a variety of options to a black outfit. One popular addition to a silver piece is an initial charm. These are either plain or dressed up with crystals.
Whatever your taste or personality, there are many styles and trends in necklaces and at every price point to choose from. But, when it comes to expressing yourself with jewelry, it is really all about personal preference.
