1. Do pearl necklaces also have different length?
Firstly, you need to know that the style of pearl necklaces is most influenced by the length of the necklace!
Whether it's a designer or a wearer, the first thing to consider when choosing a pearl necklace is the length of the necklace.
Basically, pearl necklaces are divided into six types based on their length as shown in the following figure:
Length: approximately 14 inches, 30 centimeters
Collar is the shortest pearl necklace, characterized by being located only above the collarbone, perfectly looping around the neck, tightly fitting the neck.
This pearl necklace has a very luxurious vibe of the Victorian era, and can be worn alone or stacked with several beads of the same length but different sizes, allowing women to freely transition from a gentle lady to a luxurious "fashionable elite".
Princess Diana, a fashion benchmark in jewelry, loves this way of wearing:
However, Collar is not something that ordinary people can handle because it fits tightly around their neck, and is more suitable for people with long necks to wear. However, if you feel that your neck is too long, you can also use this necklace to coordinate the proportion.
Generally, Collars are paired with V-neck, boat neck clothing, or off shoulder low cut evening gowns for formal occasions, because wearing them in this way can particularly elevate the body shape and temperament, and the femininity can also be explosive in minutes.
Length: approximately 16 inches, 41 centimeters
In recent years, the super popular "Choker" necklace has a very practical length, hanging just at the collarbone position, showing a very thin and streamlined appearance. The classic style and diverse uses make the Choker not only suitable for daily life, such as pairing with suits and simple one piece dresses; It is also suitable for slightly formal occasions, the most common is to pair it with a small skirt, making it extremely stylish!
Length: approximately 18 inches, 46 centimeters
The Princess necklace, in everyone's impression, is probably the most classic and classic pearl necklace.
This pearl necklace is slightly longer than the Choker and hangs slightly below the collarbone. This length of necklace can exactly form a small V-shaped line at the neck, suitable for women with round faces or less slender necks to wear, embellishing your contour and giving you a simple and atmospheric look.
4) Martinee necklace
Length: approximately 24 inches, 60 centimeters
Matinee is longer than Princess and can be worn one or two times, making it more suitable for women with round faces or shorter necks. Especially when it is wound twice, it can create a sense of layering and visually stretch the body, making it very suitable for women with petite figures to wear. If everything from Collar, Choker to Princess is more suitable for wearing directly on exposed skin, then pearl necklaces starting from Matinee are more suitable for wearing on clothes. Overall, wearing Matinee is perfect for pairing with high necklines or less lightweight clothing. The long V-shaped lines that hang down can also serve to divide the color blocks of the front clothing, achieving a slimming effect.
5)Extra Long - Opera&Rope necklace
Length: Opera approximately 30 inches, 76 centimeters
Rope approximately 33 inches, 85 centimeters
These two ultra long pearl necklaces both have a very obvious era characteristic of the 1920s, namely a flashy and exaggerated sense of luxury.
Opera and Rope, because they are long enough, have the most changes and can be worn in a single loop, creating a good sense of layering overall; It can also be wrapped into multiple loops to appear elegant and luxurious.
It should be noted that in the past, Opera and Rope could only be paired with formal dresses, but now there is no such emphasis.
