History: Chains date at least back to 2500 BC, and we can give credit to the Ancient Egyptians for threading links of gold and silver together – much like we thank them for hammering out sheets of gold and rolling it into early wire. ... By 300 BC, the elite upper-class was wearing chains that contained gemstones in the links.
