The tradition of wearing jewelry has a rich history and its own characteristics in each of the cultures. Serving as a reminder of events, customs or revered symbols, ornaments of different peoples are a sign of self-determination, an opportunity to identify their culture or position. So, along with Christianity, the tradition of wearing church jewelry came to Russia. Marked with plots from the scriptures and floral ornaments typical of the Byzantine art school, orthodox decorations quickly acquired a national identity, harmoniously complemented by Old Slavic motifs and slender features, characteristic already for the northern Russian school.
 
Together with the custom of wearing crosses and icons, interest in jewelery chains appeared in Rus. They were made of noble metals by skilled craftsmen, inspired by biblical motifs, Byzantine examples and Russian color. At the dawn of Christianity, such decorations could be afforded only by wealthy citizens and clergymen. However, these days, thanks to a wide variety of jewelry, it's not difficult to buy a chain of gold, silver or platinum.
