If you have been following my blog for a long time, you know I love pearl necklaces. They are so classic and go with everything. It's a staple every woman should have. Whether it's a single, double or triple strand pearl necklace, I love them all. I did a Youtube Video back in 2011 on how to style a pearl necklace here with a shorter strand of pearls (36").
This post will show you 21 different ways to wear a 60" long strand of rope pearls. Before we begin, make sure your strand of pearls are knotted in-between each pearl. Extremely cheap faux pearl necklaces (i.e Forever 21) will just be strung together and not individually knotted. This makes a big difference when you are trying to do different styles - it won't bend and knot as easily.
Some good options for 60" pearl necklaces are these Rachel long glass pearls (only $18), Lauren Ralph Lauren (on sale) or here, Marjorica pearls and these Lane Bryant faux pearls (unsure of color?).
These are better explained in a video which I am hoping to do in the near future. Hopefully they look easy enough for you to try. #11 is the only one that I may not be able to duplicate, it was kind of a mishap and ended up looking like a collar.
If you want to add some fun to your pearl necklace, a great way to do that is to clip on a vintage brooch or flower pin. It instantly changes your outfit. Just make sure to put the brooch/pin clasp in-between the knots of your pearls. This was also in my previous video.
I got this idea from my old LOFT ribbon pearl necklace here. It's nice that it's not permanent and you can change out the color of your ribbon. I only had these two colors laying around but I think a cream colored ribbon would be look amazing as well. For the blue ribbon, I used a 50" ribbon and 19" for the shorter brown bow. My suggestion is to play around and have fun with it.
I made one collage with all the styles so it makes it easier for you to pin:) The possibilities are endless and I had so much fun doing this post. If you end up trying any of these styles, please feel free to share them with me!
Which style is your favorite?
