I am planning to give my bridesmaids gold and pearl necklaces, like this:
I’m trying to decide what length of necklace to get them. It’s a pretty classic, versatile style, and I think they’re likely to wear it again. If it makes any difference, their dresses have a v-neck, and I’ll be wearing a 17″ strand of pearls.
If you were receiving this necklace, what length would you prefer?

I would say between 17 and 20 inches. I would go for the 20 but maybe you want to match the lengths to yours?

I would want something between 17-20 inches.

I’m not sure on what exact length things are but I like necklaces that sit in the middle of the upper chest, about halfway between clevage and collarbone. Whatever that translates to is what I’d pick in length. 🙂

I like 16-17″ but it depends how big their necks are

I voted for 17 inches, because 16 is slightly too short and 18 is usually just a bit too long. Anything over 18 inches would end up dangling into the top of my cleavage.

I voted for 18 inches, but i’m not terribly familiar with necklace lengths.

18-20 would be great for me.
I can’t stand anything being up near my neck, makes me feel like I’m choking!

Please get 18. 16 and 17 inch necklaces practically choke me.

I think 18 inches is about standard so I’ll say 18.

If you have the option to customize length for each girl, you might want to ask your girls for their preference. A larger person might need a longer necklace and a very petite person might want something shorter. For me, a 16′ necklace will sit where the 18′ is in the picture. I have one very tall bridesmaid and her necklace is an inch longer than the other girls’.

So, based on the poll and most of the comments, I’m leaning towards 18. I guess if it’s too long for one girl she can make it shorter, which is a lot easier than making it longer.
I’m also going to get a necklace for the 6 yr old flower girl. I was thinking of getting her a 16″ necklace, even though it’s kinda long for a child, so that she can wear it forever.
Does that seem like it would work?
