Best Buyer of Gold Necklace in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV

Necklaces are a piece of jewelry worn around the neck. They are one of the oldest types of jewelry worn by humans. They are often used for different reasons, such as religious, ceremonial, funerary, or magical. A gold necklace in particular is used as a symbol for wealth and status as it is typically made from a precious metal. 

A necklace is mainly a chain, cord, or a band that is wrapped around the neck. They are usually made from precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum. Sometimes, necklaces have other attachments to them, such as pendants. 

Brief History

Prehistoric times

Pre-historic humans adorned themselves with necklaces made from natural materials such as bones, feathers, plants, and shells, and by the Bronze Age, materials were replaced with metallic objects. The first necklaces were portrayed in the ancient Near East’s arts, and precious metals set with stones were first seen in Europe.

Ancient Civilizations

Ancient Egyptians wore a variety of necklaces. The upper-classes wore precious and organic or semi-precious materials as necklaces for religious, funerary, or celebratory purposes. Semi-precious glass, pottery, and hollow beads were used to decorate the collars Gold were commonly shaped into animals, plants, and insects as well. In Ancient Crete, all classes (upper, middle classes, and peasants) wore necklaces. Peasants wore necklaces made from stones slung on flax thread while the wealthy wore beads of agate, amethyst, rock crystal, carnelian, pearls.

Gold necklaces were worn in Ancient Greece, where these necklaces were sometimes decorated with animal shapes, blue or green enameled rosettes, or fringe detailed vase-shaped pendants. Long necklaces with suspended small perfume bottles or cameos (engraved images) were also a common sight. During the Hellenistic era, newer trends emerged as colored stones allowed for colorful pieces to be made and hung on necklaces. Ancient Romans who wore necklaces were usually from the upper class. The ones they wore were mostly made from gold and silver and were decorated with foreign and semi-precious stones like amethyst, pearl, amber, sapphire, and diamond.

Flashy and colorful jewelry later became popular following the barbarian invasions. During the Byzantine period, stringed pearls and gold embossed chains were commonly worn. The early Byzantine period also showed more usage of distinctly Christian jewelry, which shows the crucifix. 


It was considered fashionable for men to wear several amounts of jewelry around their necks during the renaissance period, such as necklaces, plaques, and pendants. The wealthiest men would wear considerable shoulder covering with inset gems. On the other hand, women preferred simpler jewelry pieces like gold chains or a strand of pearls. 


When the Baroque period came, only a few men wore jewelry, and necklaces were seen as unsophisticated by women. In the later period of the century, new diamond cutting techniques emerged, and sometimes a simple string of pearls was enhanced with tiny stones. 

Romantic Period

Necklaces are excessive during this period; wearing tight and gem-covered collars with complimenting pendants were fashionable. Brooches attached to neck ribbons were also a commonplace accessory. Some luxurious necklaces were made to be deconstructed and then assembled into a shorter necklace or a bracelet.
