Some people like to have really long necklaces. For many women, a simply necklace that is a bit sparkly is something that they really like. It is a symbol that they belong to someone and it allows them to be a little more comfortable in their skin. Depending on the type, or length, of necklace that you wear, people can form a first opinion about. A necklace that is too long and noticeable might give you a bad reputation.
- To make or break an outfit, the necklace length can be a determining factor and should be considered carefully.
- Some common lengths for necklaces are princess (18’’), chokers (17’’), matinee (20’’-24’’), and opera (28’’ – 34’’).
- Convention has it that petite women go best with matinee and opera necklace lengths while pearl lariat lengths are ideal for taller women.
