Ever wonder whether you should be buying the 16 or 18-inch length pearl necklace? Or what a "pearl rope" is? Well keep reading, as we've got a quick guide to picking out the PERFECT pearl necklace length just for you (with pictures!). Enjoy!
A choker pearl necklace will range from 14-16" and will sit above the collar bone on most women. This is a popular choice for young ladies, petite women or wearing with a high neckline.
Without a question this is the most popular length of pearl necklace sold throughout the world. A princess-length Akoya pearl necklace will go with almost anything and any neckline, from dinner dresses to a T-shirt and jeans. If a woman owns just one strand of pearls, it's our opinion that it should be a classic 18-inch pearl necklace.
A mid-length matinee pearl necklace, at 20-24 inches, is great with business attire or a dress. While classically this length would be reserved for semi-formal events, many women will rock strands of this length with casual clothing.
The opera pearl strand is 28-36 inches in length. The strand may be worn in two styles; a long elegant single strand, or doubled on itself and turned into a highly versatile, shorter length. In recent years we've seen a trend of women wearing multiple layers of opera length strands.
The rope style pearl necklace is very luxurious and highly sexy! There's something incredibly satisfying about having a rope of pearls draped around the neck.
Each 18" strand comes with a numbered certificate issued by the Pearl Science Lab of Japan and has undergone a lengthy testing process to ensure each pearl in the strand meets the strict standards necessary to receive a Hanadama grade. These pearls have the thickest, cleanest nacre out of any Akoya pearl on earth, and it is this thick nacre that produces the truly breathtaking luster exhibited.
Hanadama pearls represent the top .01% of the Japanese harvest, which makes the supply of these pearls very limited and unpredictable. Like all of our necklaces, this strand is knotted between each pearl for safety and strung with only the finest twin silk.
