      I've heard that necklaces could end in two loops which were tied
      together with ribbon. It's more secure than a hook and eye (I lost a
      really nice garnet hook and eye necklace when it fell off on the way
      to an open air court). Certainly a number of the examples in the book
      below end in two metal loops. (I can't recall the book discussing
      fastenings, but then I was mostly looking at the pictures, not reading
      all the text).

      Lastly a lovely reference: (lovely medeival stuff, including a chapter
      on rosaries, unless you're a 12th century englishwoman, like me)
