SheFinds Solution: Necklace Length

February 3, 2006 by sara

With more accessory options than ever before how does one navigate the terrain of necklace styles and lengths? The necklace trends are running the range from chunky antique pendants and bold beads to tiny lockets and chokers. With our online shopping obsession it helps to have the terminology down so you can make informed shopping choices.

Carly Wickell’s about.com article gives the low-down on proper descriptions for necklace lengths. It helps take guess work out of wordy industry descriptions. For example:

• 15 or 16 inch necklaces qualify as chokers.

• Necklaces shorter than 15 inches are collars.

• A princess necklace usually measures about eighteen inches and hangs just below the collarbone.

• 24 inch long necklaces are often known as matinee length necklaces.

• 28 inches or longer is an opera length necklace.

• Ropes can be worn long or wrapped around to create a layered chocker effect.

• Lariats are a type of very long necklace that are unattached at one end so that you can tie and knot them in different ways.

Good lesson. Now reward yourself with a stunning Nicole Romano Cascade Chain Drop Necklace available at girlshop.com. And where does “Chain Drop Necklace” fit into our new vocabulary…?
