Throughout history chains of office have been hung around the necks of the world’s most powerful historic figures. The first documented chain of office was given as a gift by Charles V of France in 1378. This chain was a gift to a prominent member of his kingdom and was to be worn at festivals and events. It did not take long before chains of office were given throughout Europe. Kings would give custom chains of office to their knights, which served a purpose of identification in the kingdom and to allies throughout the land. The tradition of the chain of office eventually spread to local politics, with mayors and other prominent members of the community having their own chain of office. A custom made chain of office is a wonderful way to capture your community’s or institution's history in the form of a decorative collar. Not only does a chain of office bring history alive, it is keepsake that is traditionally passed on to future prominent members of your community or institution.
