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.
This kind of stacking has been around a long time.

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.
