Measuring Guide

Choosing the perfect necklace length is essential for ensuring your comfort and desired style. This guide will help you accurately measure the length that's right for you.

Materials Needed

  1. Flexible measuring tape or a piece of string/yarn.
  2. A ruler or a tape measure (if using string/yarn).

Understanding Necklace Lengths

Necklaces typically range from 14 inches (choker length) to over 24 inches. Familiarize yourself with various styles like chokers, princess length, and matinee length to understand what might suit your needs.

Using a Measuring Tape

Direct Method: Wrap the measuring tape around your neck, starting at the nape. Adjust it to where you would like your necklace to sit. Note the measurement.

Comfort Adjustment: For thicker necklaces or chokers, add an extra half-inch to ensure comfort

Using a String/Yarn

If you don't have a flexible measuring tape, use a piece of string or yarn. Wrap it around your neck, mark where it meets, and then measure the string against a ruler or tape measure.

Special Considerations

Layering: If you're planning to layer necklaces, choose lengths that differ by a few inches to avoid tangling and to create a pleasing effect.

Occasion: Think about the occasion. Formal events might call for more elegant, longer necklaces, while casual settings can work well with shorter, more playful lengths.

Record Measurement

Once you’ve determined your preferred length, record it. This will be helpful for future purchases or custom orders. By following these steps, you can confidently select a necklace that not only fits well but also complements your style and the occasion.
