Chain necklaces have been around for over 6000 years! Throughout time, these chains have been used to represent not only everlasting love but human connection as well. The first chain necklaces were said to have been discovered in ancient Babylonia or otherwise known as modern-day Iraq.
In history, ancient Romans, Egyptians, and Greeks often wore either golden or silver chain necklaces. The chains they wore were found to be commonly paired with semi-precious stones used as pendants. These charms were worn on chain necklaces for the belief they would protect the wearer from evil. Throughout 300 BC chain necklaces were mainly worn by royalty as well as the elite upper class. The chains they would adorn were frequently embedded with gemstones to showcase their social status. During the Middle Ages, these chain necklaces served as a representation of both power and authority. In the course of this time period, kings and clergy were known to don thick gold chains which were then paired with badges of office or otherwise known as insignias.
