A pendant (from Old French word "pendre" and the
Latin word "pendere" which means "to hang down") is a
loose-hanging piece of jewelry, generally attached by a small loop to a
necklace , when the ensemble may be known as a "pendant necklace". One
of the earliest types of bodily adornment is the pendant. Primeval man liked to
put a tiny hole in a beautiful rock and slip a string usually made of grass or
vine so it could be hung around the neck. Shells and other indigenous materials
were also used. In Ancient Egypt, Pharaohs normally wore scarab beetle pendants
to symbolize their wealth and power. Pendants can have several functions: Award
(Medals, Organization Awards), Identification (religious symbols, sexual
symbols, symbols of rock bands), Ornamentation, Ostentation (jewels), Protection
(amulets, religious symbols) and Self-affirmation (initials, names). The many
specialized types of pendants include lockets which open, often to reveal an
image, and pendilia, which hang from larger objects of metalwork.
