So you are looking for a pearl necklace, but aren`t sure which type to buy? The three main different pearl necklaces that are available are the tin cup, string and pendant necklaces. So which one is the best for you? Well, it depends on the look that you are after.

Tin Cup Necklace

The tin cup necklace consists of a number of individual pearls on a strand of thread that gives the impression of the pearls floating on the skin. It is the most delicate looking of pearl necklaces and draws the eyes to the neck line – one of the most feminine parts of the female body. The layered effect of tin cup jewelry gives a luxurious and opulent look, whilst not looking over the top or cheap.

String Pearl Necklace

The classic pearl necklace, the string pearl necklace is the one that we all associate with the glamorous and sophisticated. The pearls strung together give a real look of elegance and luxury as well as being a strong feminine sign. They can be found in different lengths, ranging from the choker to long lengths which can be left hanging or looped round for a layered effect.

Pendant Necklace

The pendant necklace usually consists of one single pearl which hangs on the end of a delicate chain. It is a simple yet striking necklace which works especially on younger people or those with a delicate frame. It has a much more casual look but still adds some femininity and class to an outfit.

Whether you choose a tin cup, string or pendant necklace, you know that by wearing exquisite pearls, you can only look classier and more elegant. You can use your pearl necklace on almost any occasion to dress up casual outfit, or perfectly compliment a sophisticated evening outfit.
