Finding Your Chain Length
When sizing yourself, it's important to keep in mind that different styles will hang differently, so carefully review the guide for the style of jewelry you're trying to purchase. Plus, each of our necklaces have a 2-inch extender chain making your layering look easy.
1.Choose a similar necklace/cord to the one you are buying
When choosing the length for yourself, you can measure a similar necklace chain that falls the way you want. Take note that the chain thickness needs to be similar to the one you are purchasing. If you don’t have a necklace with similar look or fall, you could use a string or cord of the same thickness.
2.Wrap the chain around your neck
Ask someone to help you wrap the string around your neck, with one end pressed against the nape of your neck. Adjust the other end so that the string falls the way you want your necklace to, and mark where it meets the first end on the back of your neck.
3.Measure the chain by laying it flat
Lay the string/chain flat on a surface and measure the length up to the mark. This measurement should be your necklace chain length.
SELECT THE RIGHT NECKLACE LENGTH FOR A GIFT
The best way is of course being able to measure one of their existing necklaces which falls how they like it. As this is not always possible, your best shot is usually an educated guess at both the style they want and their neck size.
