Necklace Sizing


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. 

Measuring 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


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. 

Pendants


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. 

What to avoid

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.

Ring Size

If you know your ring size or finger measurements in millimetres you can use this table to choose which size is best for you. Be sure to allow for the size of your knuckle.

Circumference = Total circular measurement of inside ring hole. (If measuring finger this will be the full outside measurement all the way around your finger)

Diameter = Width of ring hole. (Thickness of finger)

Note: If you are in between ring sizes we recommend sizing up.

Note: If you cannot see your countries ring measurements you can use an online converter here, to find out which size would best suit you.

Use string to find your size:

Wrap a piece of loose string around your finger. Be sure to allow for the size of your knuckle.

With a pen, mark the point on the string where the end meets.

Measure string against a ruler in millimetres and compare to the charts.

Bracelet 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.   

FAQ

If you have a ring sizer, this will be the most accurate way to check your size, if you don’t have one it’s still very easy. Using a piece of string or paper, measure the circumference of your finger close to the middle knuckle (usually the widest part of the finger) measure the circumference in millimeters and then use a ring size conversion chart to match the measurement up to the ring size. We use US ring sizing.

A good necklace size will depend on your neck size and height. While there are popular sizes, it’s still important to measure your neck and use the example photos to check where the chain is likely to sit for each size. 

No, thicker chain links will feel tighter than thinner chains, this is because a thicker chain will have a smaller inner diameter when closed because of the thickness of the metal. If you’re looking at a thicker chain then it’s recommended to go up by another 1-2cm in length.
