Reign Tassel Necklace
Tassels have almost always been a symbol of power and prestige. In the beginning, tassels served as a weaving knot in garments to prevent unraveling. Over time, they took on a more powerful significance: Ancient priests and military officers wore them as talismans to ward off evil spirits... The Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun was unearthed from his tomb wearing them around his neck. We can thank the French for turning the tassel into a trendsetter. Napoleon decked out his Imperial Throne in them, and King Louis XIV decorated an entire residence with them. From there, the Western civilization adopted them as a symbol of elegance and glamour.
Reign's take on the tassel is equally impressive. This one of a kind piece combines 138 sapphire gems set in soft chains that dangle from a sculptural centerpiece.
