    A necklace is a piece of jewelry that is worn around the neck and usually consists of a chain, band or cord that is decorated with at least one ornament. Colorful stones, gems, shells, glass, gold and silver are only some of the materials ornaments worn around the neck can be made of. If a necklace has one primary hanging ornament it is called a pendant. If this pendant is a container it is called a locket. Necklaces are one of the oldest kinds of jewelry which are over 40.000 years old. In the stone ages they were made of natural substances such as stones, shells and bones. In the bronze age people started making gold, silver and platinum jewelry and the variety of jewelry grew fast. There are many different styles of necklaces that differ by the materials used, length and width.
