How to measure for the perfect necklace length
Selecting the perfect length for a necklace can be tricky! Here are some quick tips to help you select the perfect length for yourself and when buying a gift for someone else.
Everyone has a perfect length and measuring yours is well worth the effort. A 16” chain may fall differently based on your body type. Following these 2 steps will help ensure your necklace will fit perfectly.
How to measure for the perfect length
Use a string, cord, ribbon, etc., wrap it around your neck and mark where you’d like the necklace to hang.
Lay the item against a ruler to measure the length.
Buying for someone else
Here is what we recommend choosing when buying a gift for someone else.
-For petite women, we recommend going with a 16” or 18”. A 16” chain will most likely fall at the collarbone and an 18” will fall slightly below.
-For average size women, we recommend an 18” or 20” chain. An 18” chain will most likely fall at the collarbone and 20” will fall slightly below.
-For plus-size women, we recommend a 20” or 22” chain. A 20” chain will most likely fall at the collarbone and 22” will fall slightly below.
If you’re still unsure, we recommend adding a 2” extender to the necklace. This will allow the gift recipient to select the perfect length for them.
