Chain Length guide 

  1. One of the more common necklaces is a "choker." A choker will typically vary from 14 - 16 inches. These are made to sit high and close to the neck

  2. A necklace called a "Princess necklace" is 16 to 18 inches long. This usually lays between the lower neck and bust line                

  3. 18" is the common Classic lenght

  4. A "matiné" strand is 20 to 24 inches long and sits at the bust line  

  5. An "opera" necklace is about 28 to 32 inches long. This rests around the bottom of a woman's ribcage. Some people may use this length to wrap around twice, making it looks like a double choker style necklace.

  6. Anything longer than 32 inches is a "rope" necklace. Many people will take pearl strands of this length and create a larger look with this one strand.

  7. Another common necklace is a multi-strand necklace in which the strands twist around each other. These necklaces will come in different lengths.

  8. Another type of choker is the "dog collar." This is a multi-strand 16 to 18 inch necklace.

  9. A "bib" necklace has three or more concentric strands . The lowest hanging strand generally does not exceed matiné length (20 to 24 inches). The highest is typically at choker length

These measurements are standard...but not all women are built the same :)

Wrist circumference

Guide for measuring your wrist for bracelets

Choosing the correct bracelet size depends on your preferred bracelet type.
 

  1. Wrap a flexible measurement tape around your wrist at the wrist bone. 

  2. Use the size chart for your bracelet of choice to find your perfect size or to add a little more length to your wrist circumference. Depending on the fit you desire, add this to your wrist size:           

  • Snug fit - add 1/4” to 1/2"

  • Comfort fit - add 3/4” to 1"

  • Loose fit - add 1” to 1 1/4”

For example: your wrist size is 6" and you wear the 7” MEDIUM SIZE
