NECKLACE & CHAINS LENGTH GUIDE:
Choosing the right necklace length is an easy and effective way to frame your face, showcase your jewellery, and complement your outfit. This guide will assist you with your next necklace purchase. The most important factor to consider when selecting the appropriate necklace for your body type is your neck size. All necks vary, so a standard choker for the average female may be larger or smaller on your actual neck. If possible, measure your neck before purchasing any necklace, but it is especially important to measure your neck before purchasing a collar or choker, as it is designed for a tighter fit. The easiest and best way to measure your neck is with a soft measuring tape. Simply wrap the tape closely around your neck. To get an accurate measurement, the tape should be snug but not suffocating. Once you know your neck measurement, a good rule of thumb for selecting a collar or a choker is to go up one necklace size from your neck measurement. For example, if you measure your neck circumference at 14 inches, the minimum recommended collar or choker length would be 16 inches.
14" Necklace: Fits most like a choker.
16" Necklace: Falls perfectly around the base of the neck like a collar. On a petite woman it will hit your collarbone while for plus size women it might feel more like a choker.
18" Necklace: A common choice for women that will fall just below the throat at the collarbone. This length is popular for adding pendants which will hang over a crew neck.
20" Necklace: Will fall a few inches below the collarbone and allow a little more breathing room. Perfect for a low, plunging neckline or if you want to wear it over a turtleneck.
22" Necklace: Falls at or above a low neckline.
24" Necklace: Falls below any neckline.
26" Necklace: Common with pearl strands and will hang below the bosom. They can be worn as a single strand or you can double them for an 18 inch necklace.
Once you have determined which length necklace will work best for you, please click Necklaces & Pendants in the Jewellery Category Menu to start searching for the right necklace or chain length. Each of these styles may vary in terms of necklace length, but as a general rule of thumb, chokers will be the shortest necklaces. We provide size/length information with each product listing to guide you for selecting the right necklace length. Some of our pendants are sold separately from their chains. This will allow you to select your preferred length and style of chain with your purchase. We highly recommend a sterling silver chain as an excellent addition to your pendant. Please select a suitable length chain from the drop down list in the product page when ordering pendants.
BRACELETS SIZE GUIDE:
Measuring your wrist for an accurate bracelet size: To find your perfect bracelet size, follow these steps:
STEP 1: Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measurements or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet.
STEP 2: If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. That would be your wrist size.
STEP 3: To find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size with the appropriate measurements below.
Snug Fit: Please Add 1/4" to 1/2"
Comfort Fit: Please Add 3/4" to 1"
Loose Fit: Please Add 1” to 1 & 1/4"
BANGLES SIZE GUIDE:
To determine your bangle size, please follow these steps:
STEP 1: Close your fingers together and bring your thumb to your little finger. Pretend that you were putting on a bangle.
STEP 2: Using a strip of paper or tape measure, wrap it around your hand at the widest point. If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen on that paper. Then measure that paper strip with a ruler. That would be the circumference of your hand.
STEP 3: Compare your hand circumference to the chart below. Purchase a bangle with diameter that is the next size up from your actual hand measurement.
RING SIZE GUIDE:
How To Find Your Ring Size: Buying a ring can be one of the most momentous purchases of your life, so it is important to make sure you find the perfect fit. This ring size guide offers helpful tips to finding your ring size with ease.
Measurement Guide: Use this table of circumferences (mm) and a tape measure to find out your ring size.
Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle. Finger size changes depending on the time of day and the weather. For best results, measure your finger size at the end of the day and when your fingers are warm. (Fingers are smaller in the early morning and when cold.)
