How to wear and care for pearls?
Made popular by fashion icon Coco Chanel, the pearl strand necklace is a classic piece that never goes out of style. Pearl strand necklaces come in different lengths. From multiple strands delicately adorning your neck to a single strand that reaches your waist, the Palawan South Sea pearl strand necklace is a classic jewelry item that can magically transform a look from "drab" to "fab".
Here are the different pearl strand necklace lengths:
(12-13 inches) Can you imagine anything more decadent than pearls hugging the neck? Usually made up with three or more strands, the Collar gives a decidedly luxurious Victorian look that goes well with an elegant V-neck, boat neck or off the shoulder fashions.
(14-16 inches) Perhaps one of the most classic looks of all single strand lengths, the Choker rests right above the collarbone and lengthens the neck. It is also one of the most versatile of the lengths, complementing almost any neckline imaginable.
(17 – 19 inches) Feel like royalty with the Princess strand. Best suited for crew or high necklines, this strand necklace is the ideal support for an eye-catching pendant or pearl enhancer.
(28 – 34 inches) Get ready for a night out on town with this queen of all lengths. The Opera strand falls to just the bottom of the breastbone, adding more sophistication and style to the elegant gowns or power suits. It serves as a versatile two-strand choker when doubled upon itself for a more polished look.
(20 - 24 inches) Falls to the top of a woman's cleavage, and can shift from a casual look to business and evening ensembles.
(Over 45 inches) This luxuriously sensual length was made popular by fashion icon Coco Chanel. Experimenting with the rope's elegance is a must for those looking for the complete pearl wardrobe: knot it, twist it, or wind it around to satisfy endless whims and fancies.
