By itself, a necklace is little more than a pile of pretty stones and shiny metal.  When placed upon a woman's neck; however, the jewelry is dignified, and even the most perfect female form is complemented.  Here are three of my favorite necklaces.

My Stone Necklace

The other night while I was fastening one of my necklaces, I started thinking about how we choose to adorn ourselves.  With that thought, I found out some interesting facts related to the necklace:  the oldest gold  necklace in the Americas was discovered a few years ago in Peru; one of the most famous necklaces is associated with Marie Antoinette and she never wore it; and there are six different variations of the necklace categorized by length.
