15 - 16 inch / 39cmThis length works great for showcasing layering. It falls between the choker and the princess necklace and can be worn with almost any top.
16 - 17 inch / 45cmOne of the most common lengths of necklace and called the princess, it falls below the throat and over the collarbones. This length works nicely when worn with a crew top, plunging neckline, or high neckline. This necklace is the perfect length to showcase a pendant or locket.
20 inch / 50.8cm20 inch lengths are referred to as matinee length. Necklaces of these lengths will fall in the middle of the chest and are appropriate for both casual and business wear. They create a natural vertical line for the eye and can be slimming.
28 inch / 71.12cmCommonly known as opera length, these necklaces create flexibility in your personal style. Either wearing as a single long strand that creates an appealing and slimming vertical line or doubling the strand for a look that stays closer to the neckline, this length of necklace can be just as elegant for day or nightwear.

*There is a caveat to the descriptions above - the way a necklace appears on any given individual will vary based on neck size or circumference. If the wearer has a larger or thicker neck you may consider wearing a slightly longer chain than is discussed in any of the descriptions above in order to achieve the same style.
