Jewellery Size Guide

Finding the desired length of a necklace and chain, depends on: achieving a comfortable fit, the desired style you want to achieve and if you are going to place a pendant on your chain.

Necklaces & Chains

To reveal your desired chain length at home, you will require a measuring tape. Position the measuring tap around the base of your neck (the widest part), where your shirt collar would normally rest. Measure your neck size in inches. Increase your neck measurement by 2 inches and then round up or down to the nearest even number. The resulting measurement will give you the shortest chain length, that will sit comfortably around your neck. 

Example: A neck is measured at 17", if we add 2” this would be 19" and then we round up to the nearest even number. A 20" chain will be the shortest length, to sit comfortably around this neck.

The Length of The Pendant

Remember chains (depending on their link design) will naturally want to fall to a u-shape, below your neck. However, if you are wearing a pendant on your chain, the weight of the pendant will pull the chain to sit at its furthest point, in a v-shape. When choosing the length of your chain, bear in mind the length of the pendant and how far you want your pendant to sit, below your neck.
