necklace chain length guide - choose the right size


Necklaces - How long should my chain be?

Long story short: The chain you select will determine where on your body your name necklace sits, so think about the length that is right for you.

Our chains run from 14” to 32” long, which means your necklace can sit anywhere from high up on your collarbone to all the way on your lower chest.

Once you’ve decided where you would like the necklace to sit, take a long piece of string and loop it around your neck. Close the string at the point on your chest you would like your necklace to sit. Now open the string and measure it - how many inches long is it? That’s the length you should select for your new necklace.

Please keep in mind that the chain lengths mentioned on the website do not include the length of the pendant. Most of our pendants run between 0.75”-2” (2-5 cm), so the total length of your customized jewelry will be the length of your selected chain plus the length of your name pendant.

For example, if you order a name necklace with a 16” chain, the total length of the name necklace would be 16.75” – 18”, depending on the name and style.

How to measure your wrist size?

To determine your wrist size, you can follow the simple steps of either one of the two methods below.
Both measurement options will provide you with an accurate measurement of your wrist size.

Bracelet size guide OR how to measure bracelet size

Measure your wrist size with a flexible tape measure just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear your bracelet.


You can wrap a plain thin strip of paper around your wrist just below the wrist bone. Mark with a pen or pencil where the paper overlaps on your wrist. Measure the strip of paper with a ruler.

How to determine your chain length?

On every product page you can find the width of the pendant and the available chain length.

Please choose the chain length size that is closest (1 size up) to your preferred chain length.

Before you get started make sure you are measuring the finger, or an existing ring, that sits on the finger you would like your new ring to sit on. Your ring should sit comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.

There are a few different ways that you can measure your ring size.

Use Your Ring:

Measure the inside diameter of your existing ring, or the ring of the person you are buying for.
What you’ll need: A Ruler and the ring you would like to measure.

MEASURE the inside diameter of the ring and round up until the nearest mm.
The diameter of your ring is the measurement of a straight line from one side to the other.

COMPARE the length you just measured to the ring size chart below or use our custom Ring Size Calculator below.

Wrap and Measure:

Calculate your exact ring size in 5 easy steps!
What you’ll need: a strip of paper, a ruler, and a pen or pencil.

CUT a strip of paper about 8 inches long and about 0.5 inch wide.

WRAP the paper strip around the widest part of the finger you would like your customized ring to sit on. The widest part of your finger may be at the joint. Don’t worry; your ring won’t actually sit here.

USING a pen or pencil, mark the point on the paper where the strip forms a complete circle and begins to overlap.

TAKE your ruler and measure from the edge of your paper up to the line you just marked. Measure up to the nearest millimeter, rounding up if necessary.

USING the length you just calculated, consult our handy chart to find your ring size.
