Neck Lace?

The birth of necklaces is believed to be as old as the Stone Age, which is around 40,000 years old, therefore making it an integral part of jewelry since the time of ancient civilizations.  
Then, people were decorating themselves with mollusk necklaces. Later, necklaces made of stones, bones, shells and animal teeth became popular. After the discovery of metals, gold, silver and a variety of other metals were used to make eye-catching necklaces for both men and women
There are different types of necklaces:
Bib necklace: A bib necklace is made multiple strands of stepped pearls.
Chocker: 35 centimetres (14 in) to 43 centimetres (17 in) long and sits high on the neck.
Opera necklace: An opera necklace is 75 centimetres (30 in) to 90 centimetres (35 in) long and sits at the breastbone.
Princess necklace: A princess necklace is 45 centimetres (18 in) to 50 centimetres (20 in) long. It is between choker and matinee length.
Sautoir or rope necklace: A sautoir or rope necklace is any necklace longer than opera length.
Uniform necklace: A uniform necklace consists of pearls that appear to be all the same size, although normally there is a slight difference towards the ends so they appear to be in proportion.
Necklaces perhaps held their greatest influence on the jewelry world during the middle ages, but I believe that in today’s fashion forward society, anything goes.

  • Omg, wow, now I know the many differences of necklace. *So embarrassing*, and I am the type who is kind of slow in learning.. Yeah, to need to go through a few times so that I can remember.. Honestly, I need to read it again.. I think i like the long ones and the princess necklace if I didn't remember wrongly. Forgive me if I did.. One more thing, I didn't know the beans were slightly different towards the end so that it looks the same.. I thought all were same.. Going to dig our my necklace and have a closer look.. & will return to read again.. 🙂
