Choosing Chain Lengths for Men
Most chain lengths chosen for men typically fall at the collar bone, which is usually around 20 inches in length. If the necklace includes a statement piece, cross, or arrowhead, a slightly longer length is suggested. Multiple chains of varying lengths may be worn for a layered look. If you are unsure about neck size and whether or not a particular necklace or chain is right for you, email for more information. We'd be happy to help you select a suitable style of necklace that meets your specific requirements.
Choosing Chain Lengths for Women
Consider where the wearer is likely to wear the necklace and the clothing that is likely to be worn with it. Some women may wear different lengths for different occasions and seasons. A choker style may look wonderful with a cocktail dress with a scooped neckline but may not fit over a turtleneck sweater. Many women opt for longer necklaces in the winter as bulky clothing may require the extra length. Take the wearer's size into account. A 24 inch necklace on a petite woman may hang down too far just as the same necklace may be ideal for a larger woman. In general, the shorter the necklace, the more important the size. Necklaces that are too short may not fit at all.
Choosing the Right Necklace Length
Everyone is unique, both physically and in aesthetic preferences. In other words, we aren't all "standard" size nor do we have the same taste in jewelry. This is why we offer four different chain lengths for all of our customers to be content with the chain that they receive! If you feel as if you should buy two necklaces with one piece, because you simply can not decide or you would like two different material necklaces, email us (email@example.com) if you would like to add two chains to your order!
Make Sure and Measure
Prior to placing an order, or making a purchase, it's vitally important to correctly size the wearer's neck. A man's neck size corresponds to his shirt's collar size. But measuring neck size for women is generally necessary as size is often unknown. If you do not have a soft measuring tape, you can use a ribbon instead. First, wrap the ribbon around the base of the wearer's neck, and mark the spot where the ends meet. Then, lay the ribbon against a yardstick or ruler to determine approximate neck size. This will ensure you will find the right chain length that will comfortably fit your neck!
