Pearl necklaces are available in 5 lengths: Rope, Opera, Matinee, Princess, and Choker. You might’ve heard of a few of the names yet potentially possess no idea how long each is; most importantly, how it’ll sit on your neck and below.

Choker – 16-inch

Pearl chokers are the shortest length that circle your neck. As a pearl choker may be worn with nearly all necklines and look good with all styles, from formal to casual, be certain it does not swallow your neck. A pearl choker draws attention to your neck yet if you possess an especially long or short neck, the attention ought to be drawn away from your neck to your shoulder line or below. As such, you should stay away from a choker. For everybody else, a choker includes an excellent classic, appropriate for all occasions.

Princess – 18-inch

Princess strands fall somewhat below your neckline and will compliment all neck-styles from low to high. It is fantastic for the office as its length will sit right above the blouse neckline and will not be concealed such as longer lengths.
