Materials used for Fashion Jewelry Necklaces A wide variety of
materials are used to make beautiful handcrafted and machine-made
necklaces. Some of them are listed below:
Fashion Jewelry Necklaces Types
The most common types of
costume jewelry necklaces are listed below.
Chokers/choker necklaces are worn high up the
neck, and fit tightly around it, hence the name. The length of a choker
necklace is approximately 14-16 inches long. It is suited for casual and
formal occasions. This necklace came about as a result of the practice
of tying ribbons around the neck during the French Revolution. Chokers
are available embellished with stones, beads, and even embroidery.
This is the most preferred necklace
among ladies. It sits gracefully at the base of the neck, and is
available in exquisite designs. These necklaces may or may not have
pendants. The length of a princess necklace is approximately 17-19
The word 'princess necklace' refers to a type of necklace based on its
length, though it is also confused with necklaces which feature the word
'princess' on them, or a princess/crown pendant that features in the
middle of an otherwise simple necklace.
These necklaces are suited for all
occasions. The approximate length of an opera necklace is 30-36 inches.
These necklaces are long, and complement flowing attire. Mostly beaded,
opera necklaces are sometimes tied into a knot at the chest. This adds a
bohemian effect to the whole costume.
Dog collar necklace:
These necklaces are more or less
like chokers. Dog collar necklaces are broad with elaborate designs.
They have been inspired from dog collars, hence the name. Popular
designs include embroidered or studded collars with pendants, or two
parallel metal chains linked to a huge pendant that sits high on the
neck. These necklaces are often confused with dog collars.
These necklaces have charms all over
the chain. The charms hang from little metal loops from the necklace.
Little charms in various shapes like flowers, hearts, cross, starfish,
dolphins, skulls are used. Letter charms that spell the wearer's name or
that of a loved one are also available. Sometimes, colored beads and
sequins of all shapes and sizes are put together and strung onto wire to
give the charm necklace a distinctive look. Charm necklaces are
available in different lengths.
