HOW TO MEASURE YOUR NECKLACE
35 cm / 14 in
Fits most like a choker.
40 cm / 16 in
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.
45 cm / 18 in
A common choice for women that will fall just below the throat at the collarbone. This length is popular for adding pendants that will hang over a crew neck.
50 cm / 20 in
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.
55 cm / 22 in
Falls at or above a low neckline.
60 cm / 24 in
Falls below any neckline.
90 cm / 36 in
Common with pearl strands, to hang below the bosom for a single strand or doubled for a 45 cm (18 in) twin-strand necklace.
* The length of the necklace clasp is not included in the necklace measurements. Normally, clasps are around ¾ of an inch.
**Long necklaces may be wrapped around the neck a 2-3 times to achieve a layered affect.
