HOW TO MEASURE YOUR NECKLACE

35 cm / 14 innecklaces 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.
