A dog tag necklace is now a trendy fashion accessory, but it was never designed with fashion purposes in mind. The metal dog tag necklace was first introduced back in 1906 for the American military.
Today, there are many variations on the original dog tag necklace with major fashion houses and jewelry manufacturers putting their on spin on this military inspired design. The DT1 Dog Tag is one of the more popular styles. Most choose to add a 3mm sterling silver dog tag bead chain.
The original metal military dog tag necklaces were the size of a silver half dollar, they were stamped with the name, rank, company, regiment, or corps of the wearer. All those in the military were required to wear them whenever the field kit was on. The tags were worn on a chain or cord underneath the clothing.
