What length of chain should I buy for my necklace?
Please use our guide below to decide what length of chain you would like to purchase.
16 inch (40.6cm) – Choker length chain
Our 16 inch chain sits perfectly around the base of the neck like a collar. On a small frame, it will sit on your collarbone, while for a larger frame it will sit more like a choker.
18 inch (45.7cm) – Princess length chain
Our 18 inch chain is a very popular choice, falling just below the throat at the collarbone. This length is ideal for wearing with a pendant, and it sits nicely with an open neck shirt or a v-neck top.
20 inch (50.8cm) – Matinee length chain
Our 20 inch chain will fall a few inches below the collarbone and allows a little more breathing room. This length is perfect for a low, plunging neckline or if you want to wear the necklace over a turtleneck.
One way to ensure you choose the right length of chain, is to measure a necklace that already fits you well and find the chain above that is closest in length. Please bear in mind that the slighter the frame of the individual, the longer the necklace will sit. It is important to take this into consideration when buying a necklace for someone else.
