Bead Mecca's Design Tips

Common Necklace Lengths

Collar 12-13"
The Collar sits high on the neck and is snug. This necklace length is great for someone who has a long slender neckline and looks great worn with a v-neck or alternative neckline clothing. This style was popular in the Victorian era as a 3-strand collar.
Choker 14-16"
This is the universal length for most women, as it sits right along the neckline and looks great casual or dressy.
Princess 17-19"
Slightly longer than the Choker this is a beautiful length for featuring a pendant or for a women who are larger or aging and may not want to bring attention to their neckline. This necklace looks great with high neckline clothing or with a low cut or plunging neckline.
Matinee 20-24"
This is a great casual length. It can be worn with just about anything and is conservative enough to be suitable for business attire.
Opera 28-34"
This is a great casual length. It can be worn with just about anything and is conservative enough to be suitable for business attire.
Rope 45"+
This is a great casual length. It can be worn with just about anything and is conservative enough to be suitable for business attire.
Lariat
Traditionally the Lariat was a long 48" open necklace that was tied in the front to close. The modern Lariat can be any length and has an open structure that requires wrapping or looping one end to the other to secure. This can be worn with anything depending on the length and can be made dressy or casual.
