Glossary of Necklace Styles

Posted by Vivian Vassar on 22nd Nov 2019

As I was listing vintage necklaces this week on and on eBay I found myself checking my terminology to make sure I was describing the necklaces correctly.  Since I found the following list helpful  I thought I'd share it with you. 

Standard Necklace Lengths

Collar - 12-14"

Choker - 14-16"

Princess - 16-18"

Matinee - 20-22"

Opera - 30-36"

Rope - 36" +

This list can be found on The Spruce Crafts .  They even have suggestions for pairing necklaces and how to wear them to the best advantage along with reference photos.  Hope you find it helpful too :)
