Pearls: Gail Carriger Talks Multiple Strand Faux Pearl Necklace & The Names of Necklace Lengths


I have this multi-strand stacked mock pearl necklace that I bought on a whim from a retro fair and wear all the flipping time.


Here's your names for the different lengths...

Collar, choker, princess lengths are my favorites. I will occasionally wear a rope. The other two don't work with the Rack. Not on me, anyway.

Mine I'll wear for daytime or evening because of the style of bead.

Although in the past with real pearls it does tend to be MAJOR formal events.
