Back to Basics
Let’s start with the basics. There are tons of styles in the jewelry world, but we’ll help you narrow things down to the few that matter when starting to layer.
Below you’ll find 6 key styles every fashionista should know. Also listed are standard lengths and placement descriptions to help you visualize where each necklace will fall.
|Collar||14 inches||Snug around the neck|
|Choker||16 inches||Against the base of the throat|
|Princess||18 inches||Rests along or just below the collarbone|
|Matinee||20 to 24 inches||Rests on the decollete|
|Opera||28 to 36 inches||Directly on or slightly below the bust|
|Rope||36 to 42 inches||Can run as low as the navel if unwrapped|
In order to achieve a flawless layered look, we suggest selecting pieces in a variety of lengths.
