What does it mean when you dream about a necklace?

A dream that focuses on one’s necklace can indicate feelings of specialness or wealth, or associations with a person who might have given one the necklace as a gift. Alternatively, it could be weighing one down like “a millstone around one’s neck.” (See also Jewels/Jewelry, Ring).
