A Fresh, New Look With a Coin Pearl Necklace

By Michelle Yamamoto

A pearl necklace creates a sense of elegance, sophistication, and class that cannot be matched by any other piece of jewelry. A coin pearl necklace is one of most popular types of pearl necklaces available today. These disc-shaped pearls offer a fresh, new look on everyone's neckline.

The Outfit
The overall length of the necklace depends on the outfit that you want to wear. The general rule is the lower the neckline, the longer the necklace. If you will be wearing a button down shirt, or a scooped neckline, a coin pearl necklace of about 18 to 22 inches would be ideal. The focal point of the necklace should be just below your throat line. However, if you have a plunging neckline, a longer coin pearl necklace will compliment the outfit.

If the colors in your outfit are bold and bright, a smaller, more subdued necklace would be hardly noticed. An outfit with muted colors or subdued lines calls for this smaller necklace.

Your Body Type
A coin pearl necklace should always compliment both you and the outfit that you are wearing. If your neck is long and slender, a shorter coin necklace will give the illusion of a shorter distance between your neckline and head. If your neck is more rounded, a coin pearl necklace that is slightly longer will add the illusion of length to your neck.

When shopping for a coin pearl necklace be sure to bring a few of your friends with you, visit some reputable jewelry stores, and try some pieces on. In addition, talk to the jewelry store attendant. He has seen many pieces of this type of jewelry and will be able to help you decide which is right for you.
