HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT CHAIN FOR YOUR NECKLACE?
Here we have a standard women’s chain size chart. This chart can help you measure what size chain is suitable for your style and needs.
The right necklace lengths vary from person to person. Standard women’s necklace lengths are 16 to 20 inches, but different chain lengths are appropriate for different styles and outfits.
Everyone is unique, both physically and in aesthetic preferences. This guide will hopefully help you decide on the right chain length for you or the gift recipient.
The easiest and best way to determine the right chain length for you is to measure using a soft measuring tape. If you do not have a soft measuring tape, wrap a ribbon around the base of the wearer’s neck, mark the spot where the ends meet, then lay the ribbon against a yardstick or ruler to determine approximate neck size.
After a measurement is obtained, it’s a good idea to opt for a necklace size that is at least the second size up from your neck size. For example, if you have an 18-inch neck, you should probably choose a chain length of 20 inches or more. An 18-inch chain would feel too tight. Also consider the type of necklace when choosing length.
Please remember that this is only a guide, and you may find you need a slightly longer or shorter chain.
We make orders to have adjustable size. For example, if you order 18” chain length, you would be able to adjust it to 16” to 20”.
