What chain length do I need? The right necklace can instantly change your look but you may be thinking 'what chain length do I need?.' When shopping online for necklaces it can be hard to figure out what chain length will work best for you. The best way to find the perfect length is by measuring your own neck with a string and ruler, then comparing that measurement to our selection of chains here on our site. This will ensure that you get the right size every time!
I sell three chain lengths with all pendants and they are a 16 inch, an 18 inch and a 24 inch chain. The length each chain sits at will vary on each individual as it depends on facts such as your height, your width and your neck size. Generally speaking though if you are quite slim then a 16 inch chain should sit on your collarbone, an 18 inch should sit just below your collarbone and a 24 inch will hang much further down around your chest area. If you are a wider person then the 16 inch will sit much higher up on your neck, the 18 inch will sit around your collarbone and the 24 inch will sit in between your collarbone and chest area.
If you are a slimmer person or have a slim neck like me then I would definitely opt for the 16 inch or 18 inch chains, as I find the 24 inch chain hangs down too low for my liking and gets in the way. However, if you are a wider person or have a wide neck then the 16 inch is not going to sit comfortably for you, so I would opt for the 18 inch or the 24 inch chains.
We hope this guide has been helpful in finding the best chain length for your needs. If you have any questions or need help, don't hesitate to reach out!
