There are many types of necklaces that fall into this category. A chain necklace is a set of rings, discs or beads that are interlocked together. It may sound simple enough, but there are so many styles, variations and variations to choose from when it comes to chain necklaces… not to mention the variety of clasps that you can choose from. Make sure that your clasp is strong, fastens easily (especially if you are going to be getting dressed alone), and supports the weight of the chain.

2. Pendant Necklaces

As the name suggests, this type of necklace is a catch-all for any necklace with the addition of a pendant, part of a chain. Choose a pendant that speaks to you. “It’s going on your neck, so don’t just choose the first necklace you see. You need to consider how you intend to wear it. Do you intend to wear it underneath your shirt and suit? Would you prefer to wear it on top of a t-shirt? That will determine how chunky or slim the pendant should be.

3. Dog Tags

A special type of pendant necklace. It is thought that dog tags date back to both the American Civil War and World Wars I and II. Dog tags are usually worn as identification in case of a casualty or death. Nowadays, it is worn as a fashion piece. You can still wear your dog tag under your shirt when you are headed to the office or to a formal event, but if it is engraved with something meaningful, you might want to wear it on the outside and get ready to strike up some interesting conversations with people.

4. Religious Necklaces

A religious necklace is usually also a pendant necklace. In the Jewish faith, pendant necklaces that represent the Evil Eye, Hamsa or Star of David are worn as pendants. Because this type of necklace is also quite special, we have separated it from the rest of the pendant necklaces. Pendants that represent the Koran which are popular in Islam; rosaries, cross necklaces and Saint medals which are popular in Christianity, are all examples of religious necklaces.

5. Beaded Necklaces

As far back as 110,000 years ago, the first beaded necklace is believed to have been discovered in the Skhul Cave in Israel. While the first beaded jewellery was made from shells, beads are now made out of wood, stone, metal, and plastic. A beaded necklace is a symbol of relaxation and freedom for many people.

6. Leather Necklaces

A leather necklace is usually worn to match the other leathers you are wearing. However, matching your necklace to your watch strap or leather belt is not an absolute rule, but it does keeps the entire outfit looking neat and uncluttered. If you do not like wearing animal hide, you can buy rope necklaces made with cotton or vegan leather in place of animal hide.
