Necklace Lengths


When selecting a necklace or pendant, consider that the length will determine where it will lie on your chest. Remember that longer lengths accentuate the bust while shorter sizes show off the lines of the neck.

A description of the various lengths follows:

  • Choker necklace – Around 40cm in length. Should nestle around the base of the neck - just above the collarbone.
  • Princess necklace – Around 45cm in length. Hangs over collarbone and is the most common length; it is halfway between choker and matinee length.
  • Matinee necklace – Around 55cm in length. Should fall to the top of the cleavage.
  • Opera necklace – Between 75cm and 90cm in length; should fall to the breastbone - a dramatic length.
