Pearl Necklace Lengths
When choosing pearl jewellery it is important to consider the length of the necklace. Please follow our tips on selecting the best necklace length.
Choker Length is from 14 to 16 inches (34cm-41cm). This is a classic and versatile length which is appropriate both both casual and eveningwear; it complements most necklines. A choker is the perfect length to add subtle elegance to workwear for example with a collared shirt.
Princess Length is from 17 to 19 inches (43cm-48cm). This is the most common length of necklaces suited for high necklines. It also complements a low plunging neckline as most people like a necklace of around 18 inches.
Matinee Length is from 20 to 25 inches (51cm-63cm) and is an ideal choice for casual or business attire. It suits high necklines and can add sophistication to a professional look.
Opera Length is from 26 to 36 inches (66cm–91cm) and provides flexibility in wearing the pearl jewellery. For example, it can be worn as a single strand or doubled to create a two-strand choker. It can be knotted at the neckline or above the bust to create a stylish look with loose-fitting dresses to give a fresh cutting-edge fashion statement.
Pearl Rope is 37 inches (93cm) or longer and this can be either be one long string or several put together to create a stunning multi-strand look. Add a big pendant and creates a trendy appearance, especially with the classic little black dress.
