necklace length
24 inches/Opera length: An intense length worn over a dress or top.

18 inches/Princes length: Lies over collarbones. Very common length.

16 inches/choker length: Lies a tad above the collarbones and draws attention to the neckline.

Purchasing Tip

Calculate the length of a necklace from one edge to another (clasp included).

Pendants and Necklaces as Presents

Many females choose to begin with a link of fake pearls and thus a link of natural pearls makes a great present idea for a young lady. In case there is an upcoming special event like a birthday or anniversary, you may go for a solitaire pendant that bears a diamond or a pearl. For a very special event e.g 10-year anniversary, you may consider gifting Akoya pearls which are renowned for their unparalleled beauty. Every time she wears such piece, she will have fond memories of the occasion.

For lighter and more fun events e.g vacation or a job promotion, you may opt for a pendant that has a platinum, 18K gold, or sterling silver pattern which is a more fun and less formal choice.
