How to measure your jewelry size?

How long should my chain be?

Long story short: The chain you select will determine where on your body your  necklace sits, so think about the length that is right for you.

Our chains run from 14” to 32” long, which means your necklace can sit anywhere from high up on your collarbone to all the way on your lower chest.

Once you’ve decided where you would like the necklace to sit, take a long piece of string and loop it around your neck. Close the string at the point on your chest you would like your necklace to sit. Now open the string and measure it - how many inches long is it? That’s the length you should select for your new necklace.

Please keep in mind that the chain lengths mentioned on the website do not include the length of the pendant. Most of our pendants run between 0.75”-2” (2-5 cm), so the total length of your customized jewelry will be the length of your selected chain plus the length of your pendant.

For example, if you order a necklace with a 16” chain, the total length of the necklace would be 16.75” – 18”, depending on the pendant and style.

14 inches (35cm): fits closely around the neck

16 inches (40cm): the length is equivalent to the collar

18 inches (46cm): dropping to the position close to the collarbone

20 inches (50cm): dropping to the bottom of the collarbone

22 inches (55cm): close to the neckline

24 inches (60cm): dropping to the neckline
