Perusing magazines recently I noticed the variety of names to describe different styles of necklaces. I have a few favourites that I like to wear myself, chokers and princess being my favourite - what are yours?
Here are some examples of styles that may sway your opinion ...
Choker necklaces are short in length and sit across the collarbone and fit snugly around the neck.
The Princess is a traditional style necklace that is usually around 18in long.
Matinee - over 20in long and sits either below or along the bustline
Opera (or rope necklace) is longer than the matinee - some can be worn double stranded
Lariat - this style of necklace is usually open with decorated ends that are looped or knotted instead of clasped.
