Q. What are
the different pearl necklace lengths?
14" to 16" in length. A pearl choker is perhaps the most
classic and yet versatile of all the single strand lengths. A simple
pearl choker can go with virtually any outfit from casual to fancy
eveningwear, and just about any neckline imaginable.
17" to 19" in length. The princess length necklace is best
suited for crew and high necklines. It also complements low plunging necklines.
20" to 24" in length. Longer than the choker, and just a
bit shorter than an opera length, the matinee necklace is the right
choice for casual or business dressing.
28" to 34" in length. The opera necklace is the queen of
all the lengths. When worn as a single strand, it is refined and
perfect for high or crew necklines. When doubled upon itself, it
serves as a versatile two-strand choker.
over 45" in length.
LENGTH OF PEARL NECKLACE DO WOMEN PREFER?
A: The 24"
strand is good for business suits. The 32" strand can be worn
straight or doubled up. The 18" necklace is also good because it
is an all-purpose length that works well with jeans as well as an
evening dress. Triple strand pearls compliment Chanel style suits and
a nice finishing touch to most evening wear.
At 17-19 inches, the princess-length pearl necklace makes a perfect
chain for a pendant or pearl enhancer. It looks great with crew neck
tops, and works beautifully for both high necklines and daringly low ones.
This mid-length pearl necklace, at 20-24 inches, is great with a
business suit or a dress. It's not as formal as an opera-length
strand or as short as a choker, but is still perfect on its own.
for a night at the opera or any other dress-up occasion, the opera
pearl strand is 28-34 inches in length. As a single strand, it looks
wonderful with high or crew necklines, but you can also double it on
itself and turn it into a highly versatile, shorter length.
At over 45 inches long, the rope pearl is very luxurious--and highly
sexy! You can have clasps along the length to help you break it down
into shorter necklace and bracelet combinations but, on its own, it's breathtaking.
