Pearl Strand Lengths


Pearl necklaces can be very versatile to fit any style, outfit, and occasion. When selecting the length of your pearl strand, you can always start with the common length of your existing necklaces that you usually wear. The length should fit your size, and make you feel comfortable to wear. In addition, you should also take into consideration the size of the pearls.

Choker necklace looks especially attractive with V-neck blouses and dresses. The central pearl normally lies in the hollow of the neck, above the collar bone.

Princess is one of the most popular length selected by women. It usually sits at or below the collar bone. The slightly longer length makes it very comfortable to wear. It fits either a V-neck or button-up blouse.

Matinee sits well below the neckline. It can fit either a business attire or a casual dress. You can also mix and match it with another pearl necklace, or another type of necklaces to create a unique look.

Opera is about twice the length of a choker. It is very suitable for layering, and can be used to create a double strand necklace.
