The Secret to Finding the Perfect Chain\Necklace Length: How to Measure and Choose the Right Size

When it comes to buying a chain or necklace, the length is just as important as the style and material. A chain that's too short can look cramped and uncomfortable, while one that's too long can get tangled and look unkempt. But how do you know what size chain to buy?

First, it's important to understand the different lengths available. Chains and necklaces typically come in lengths of 14 inches, 16 inches, 18 inches, 20 inches, 22 inches, and 24 inches, with some variations depending on the brand and style.

An easy of finding out the perfect chain or necklace length is by simply taking a ribbon and looping it around your neck until you find the size that looks best. Then simply measure the length of the ribbon in inches using a ruler or tape measurer. You now know your perfect chain size.

A few things to keep in mind when using this method:

  1. Thicker chains tend to sit higher on the chest so you may want to had an inch or two if you're buying a bulky chain.

It's also worth noting that the width of the chain can affect the overall look and feel of the necklace. A thinner chain will have a more delicate and elegant look, while a thicker chain will have a bolder and more statement look.

2. If you're thinking of wearing a pendant with the chain or necklace try to imagine where the pendant will sit. Consider making the chain or necklace longer or shorter depending on how big the pendant is and where you want it to sit.

Finding the perfect chain or necklace length is all about personal preference and comfort. It's important to try the chain on and see how it looks and feels. If its not perfect when it arrives to you, don't worry, just send it back and have it adjusted to your liking.
