Necklace and chains, Size and lengths for men, women or children

Here is our selection of necklace chains, cords, thongs and cables in leather, cotton, sterling silver and super quality nice waxed braided poly to accompany our necklaces and pendants, or one piece or collection of your own.

The standard sizes and lengths for men, women or children are as follows:

instructions:
FOR A COLLAR OR CHOKER FIT: use a smooth ribbon or non adhesive tape to measure the width of the neck in order to be sure that the size or length of chain or necklace you choose is not too small or large.
Lay the ribbon tape next to a ruler or measuring device to see how many inches in circumference the neck is. Add 1 inch to the measurement of the smallest part where you want the chain to fit neatly for a close fit, to be sure that you can put it on, take it off and turn your head without damaging the chain or cord, or pinching yourself, etc.


FOR PRINCESS FIT OR LONGER HANGING NECKLACES FOR WOMEN, MEN OR CHILDREN: Use a thin rope or piece of string. Lay it gently around the neck, draping and hanging it to the desired length were you want to wear the necklace or pendant.
Clip the string to the exact length, and lay to next to a ruler or measuring device. Choose the length in our guide that is closest to the size of your measurement.
Note that petite and small framed women may be using Childs sizes for a close fit.
Very thick necked or large boned men and women will need a chain that is the next size up to fit the descriptions of where we write each chain sits, in most cases. This is why measuring is important.
Pease note that our chains and cords are handmade to the sizes we use, so if you would prefer one on the smaller or longer side of the measurement, please include it in the special requests or note area at checkout, and follow up by contacting us in the chat box or by email to be sure.
