Finding the Right necklaces for You

We are fortunate to know much of the world’s long and dazzling history of necklaces, as this type of jewelry was so treasured that it was frequently buried with its owners.

Lapis lazuli beads adorned necklaces unearthed from the royal graves at the ancient Iraqi civilization of Sumer, while the excavation of King Tut’s burial chamber revealed a sense of style that led to a frenzy of Art Deco designs, with artisans of the 1920s seeking to emulate the elegant work crafted by Ancient Egypt’s goldsmiths and jewelry makers. 

In ancient times, pendant necklaces worn by royalty and nobles conferred wealth and prestige. Today, wearing jewelry is about personal expression: Luxury diamond necklaces exude confidence and can symbolize the celebratory nature of a deep romantic relationship, while paper-clip chain-link necklaces designed by the likes of goldsmith Faye Kim are firmly planted in the past as well as the present. Kim works exclusively with eco-friendly gold, and these fashionable, fun accessories owe to the design of 19th-century watch fobs. 

For some, necklaces are thought of as being a solely feminine piece, but this widely loved accessory has been gender-neutral for eons. In fact, just as women rarely took to wearing a single necklace during the Renaissance, men of the era layered chains and valuable pendants atop their bejeweled clothing. In modern times, the free-spirited hippie and counterculture movements of the 1960s saw costume-jewelry designers celebrating self-expression through colorful multistrand necklaces and no shortage of beads, which were worn by anyone and everyone. 

Even after all of these years, the necklace remains an irrefutable staple of any complete outfit. Although new trends in jewelry are constantly emerging, the glamour and beauty of the past continue to inform modern styles and designs. In a way, the cyclical history of the necklace differs little from its familiar looped form: The celebrated French jewelry house Van Cleef & Arpels found much inspiration in King Tut, and, now, their Alhambra collection is a go-to for modern royals. Vintage necklaces designed by David Webb — whose work landed him on the cover of Vogue in 1950, two years after opening his Manhattan shop — were likely inspired by the ornamental styles of ancient Greece, Mesopotamia and Egypt

On 1stDibs, browse top designers like Cartier, Tiffany & Co. and Bulgari, or shop by your favorite style, from eye-catching choker necklaces to understated links to pearl necklaces and more. 

Questions About 16 Inch Necklace
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    Whether a 16-inch necklace is too short varies. When deciding what necklace length to wear, consider what you're pairing it with. Necklaces that are 16 inches long are chokers, and they work especially well with strapless dresses, tube tops and shirts with collars. With some tops and dresses, a choker may sit too close to the neckline to create a balanced look. On 1stDibs, find a large selection of necklaces.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    There is no set number of diamonds on a 16-inch tennis necklace. The number of diamonds that make up a tennis chain often depends on the size of the gemstones. Generally, the larger the diamonds are, the fewer there are on a tennis necklace. On 1stDibs, explore a variety of tennis necklaces.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 27, 2023
    Whether you should get an 18-inch or 20-inch necklace depends largely on where you want the piece to fall. An 18-inch, or princess-length, necklace usually hits just below the collarbone and can work well for displaying pendants. A 20-inch, or matinee-length, necklace will rest a little further below the collarbone and can be ideal for creating layered looks with other necklaces. On 1stDibs, shop a wide variety of necklaces.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    Whether a 20-inch necklace is too short largely depends on what you wear it with. Generally, a necklace should hit above or below a neckline for a balanced look. Also called a matinee necklace, a 20-inch necklace usually hangs just below the collarbone, making it ideal for coordinating with many tops and dresses with lower necklines. On 1stDibs, shop a diverse assortment of necklaces.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJanuary 23, 2024
    Where a 14-inch necklace sits varies from person to person. The thickness of a person's neck will influence where a necklace hangs. However, a 14-inch necklace will usually rest at the base of the neck, right on the bone. People refer to necklaces of this length as chokers due to how they hug the neck. On 1stDibs, explore a diverse assortment of choker necklaces.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    Whether an 18-inch necklace is too short depends on a few factors. If the necklace length causes it to hit right at the neckline of your top, you may want to go with a longer or shorter option. People with wide or short necks may also find necklaces longer than 18 inches more flattering. On 1stDibs, shop a variety of necklaces.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    Yes, 14 inches is short for a necklace. In fact, it is one of the shortest necklace lengths available. Necklaces that are 14 inches long or less are called collar necklaces. They tend to flatter people with long and narrow necks. Find a wide range of necklaces from some of the world's top dealers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 1, 2023
    Whether 24 inches is too long for a necklace depends on the person wearing it and their individual style. Taller people and those with wider necks may find 24-inch necklaces to be flattering. A 24-inch necklace can also be paired with a low-cut top or layered with shorter necklaces. Explore a large selection of necklaces on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertNovember 8, 2023
    Whether an 18- or 20-inch necklace is better depends on a variety of factors. Generally, a necklace should fall above or an inch or so below the neckline of what you're wearing, so you'll want to keep your tops and dresses in mind as you choose pieces. People with wider or shorter necks may prefer longer necklaces, while those with longer or narrower necks may be best flattered by longer styles. Also, you may find one length more comfortable or visually appealing than another based on your preferences. Shop a large collection of necklaces on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJanuary 23, 2024
    No, a 20-inch necklace isn't too long for a woman. Called matinee length, the 20-inch necklace will usually fall below the collarbone and can be an attractive option for work or casual occasions. People with short necks may actually prefer this length because it helps to visually elongate the neckline. A 20-inch necklace can also be a good choice for creating layered necklace effects. Find a wide variety of necklaces on 1stDibs.
