The earliest pendant was one made of copper and dates back to 8700BC Sumeria. Some historians also believe that pendant necklaces were worn before this in the form of a rock strung onto a string-like material. Later, Egyptian Pharaohs wore a special type of pendant that served as protection against evil. The Greeks adorned themselves in pendant necklaces that featured vase-shaped pendants to depict figures of Greek mythology.
