Fashion trends regularly replace each other. This applies to both clothes or shoes, as well as various ladies' accessories. In the distant past, pendants with a photograph inside were popular, but today they are again in demand and relevant.
Such items were used to protect against evil spirits and failures in life. In the distant past, pagans put stones on their necks that have certain sacred meanings. As a rule, the amulet was placed on a strip of animal skin.
Times have changed each other. The external design of the pendants also changed. They took on more and more complex and non-trivial form. This interesting thing was used during the time of the pharaohs in Egypt. The story goes that Cleopatra herself awarded her associates with gemstone pendants engraved with her name or various images.
Then unusual products with a secret saw the light. The stones were sawed into two pieces and became like a shell with a hollow space inside. Poison was poured into the inside. As a rule, they hounded members of the royal family, kings or persons close to them.

Especially such items were important for sailors. In the inner part, they placed photographs and locks of hair of their beloved wives and children. These little things were the only reminder of home during periods of long voyages across seas and oceans.
