The word pendant originated from the Latin word pendere and the old French pendre, meaning to hang down. A pendant is typically a hanging piece of jewelry that is attached to a necklace.
Along with necklaces, pendants were also one of the oldest known pieces of jewelry. Pendants were common in ancient Egypt; thus, ancient Egyptians wore them and were typically shaped like hieroglyphs. Early pendants were made from various materials such as shells, stone, potter, and other available materials. Some were even perishable items.
Like other types of jewelry, pendants play an essential role in different cultures; it can represent societal membership, protection, identification, and more.
