Looking to buy a necklace but don't know what size to get? Let us make it easier for you with this sizing guide we've put together. Necklace sizes are really simple and straight forward, they are always listed as the length measurement of the chain so all you need to know is the measurement of your neck, then check the example photos and that will help you choose the perfect size for your neck.
Why measure your neck? Measuring your neck is highly important when buying a necklace so you don't buy something too small. We sell a wide range of sizes from female chokers up to long chains. If you just guess and buy something that doesn't fit, it's going to be super annoying having to return it. Measure first and get the perfect size.
Take a piece of string or measuring tape and wrap it around your neck. Mark where the points touch and then measure the string with a ruler.
Chains start at choker length and go up to long hanging chains. For chokers we recommend a size no smaller than 1-2 inches bigger than your neck size so there is some room for movement and it is not too tight.
Pendant necklaces sit lower than a single chain because the weight of the pendant pulls it down into a V shape. Your height will also affect where the pendant sits, if you are tall it will sit higher, if you are short it will sit lower. As a general guide we recommend your smallest size to be 2 inches bigger than your neck so it will sit roughly below your collarbone. From there you can see on the examples how an increase of 5cm-10cm chain length stacks with the previous chain.
This is an example of someone with a 14 inch neck wearing a 14 inch chain, it's too tight without any room for movement. The reason for this is even though the chain is the same length as the neck, the thickness of the chain makes the internal measurement smaller when it's worn. This is why we recommend buying no smaller than 1-2 inches bigger than your neck size.
Bracelet sizes are listed as the length of the bracelet. To measure your wrist, use a piece of string to wrap around wrist, cut where it joins and measure against a ruler. We recommend choosing a size 1-2 inches bigger than your wrist size.
