Necklaces date back to 3,000 B.C. in Egypt, where gold was fabricated into beautiful wide, heavy collars which were worn around the neck. The trend has continued for ages, with more delicate necklaces eventually replacing the heavy collars. In the Victorian era, women often wore their necklaces in multiples and necklaces were often enhanced with brooches. Popular necklace designs included rivieres, fringes, dog collars, sautoirs, lavalieres, chokers, and pendants. The Edwardian period translated platinum and diamonds into lacy necklaces while the Art Deco period favored geometric and boldly designed necklaces.
