21 ways to wear a 60″ long strand pearl necklace

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: (here, here and here)

These are my favorites and are the easiest to do. All of them are so feminine and instantly add a touch of class to your outfit. 

TWISTS + KNOTS + LOOPS

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.  
BROOCHES + FLOWER PINS

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.
RIBBONS + BOWS

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!

  1. Fabulous. I have probably ten different pearl necklaces of varying lengths, but it seems as if a 60″ is so versatile I could do with just that one an maybe a single strand. Love this post.

    • Thanks Rebecca! I have so many pearl necklaces and I don’t think you can ever have too many:) The 60″ is very versatile and I hope you get one!

  2. I love #2, 6, 7, 19. Hrm, I guess I’ve lacking a staple that every woman should have. Although I do have a short strand of black pearls purchased from a hotel gift shop from my last vacation in Hawaii. This post makes me want to make more use of it.

  3. can you do a youtube video showing some of the more complicated ones? that would be really helpful

  4. I would like to be able to have some sort of “clamp” that does the same as tying a ribbon around the strand. Maybe something I could attach in the back. I find myself readjusting the strand several times a day. My right hand is too weak to tie a bow once it’s been wrapped around two or the times. Suggestions?

  5. Quick question- I love my long pearls, but whenever I try to do something like #s 4&5, I find that the longest strand is too heavy and sags downward, pulling the other strands uncomfortably (and unattractively) tight around my neck. Do you find yourself having the same problem, and have you found any solution?

  6. After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts

  9. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest

  23. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this.
