Collar, Choker, and Princess; Do you know the names associated with different types of necklaces? The names used to describe each necklace is directly associated with how long they are. So next time you hear your friends talking about a Lariat...you'll know exactly what they're talking about.
Necklace lengths are more personal preference rather than fashion requirements in this day and age. You won’t get strange stares if you wear Opera beads in the middle of an afternoon unless you time traveled back to 1880. So be creative and mix and match as you please.
13 to 16 inches are Collar & Choker
17 to 19 inches are Princess
20 to 24 inches are Matinee
28 to 32 inches are Opera
Over 45 inches are considered Lariat or Ropes
