Ah, the humble necklace. Perhaps one reason the necklace has proven to be such a timeless form of jewelry is its versatility – anything that can be worn around the neck or hang from a chain makes a fine necklace. Of course, where there’s room for creative, people will always put some unique spins on a simple idea.
