How to find your perfect necklace length

The perfect necklace length is very individual, but there are a few ways to figure out which length will suit you best. Use the instructions below to find your new favourite necklace length.

If you already have a necklace with a length that you like, you can measure it to help determine which size to choose. There are two ways to measure a necklace.
You'll need:
  • Tape measure or ruler
  • A necklace you like

Option 1:

Measure full length
Lay the necklace down on a flat surface in a straight line. Measure it from one end of the clasp to the other and note down the length.

Option 2:

Measure when fastened
With the necklace clasp fastened, lay it down on a flat surface and measure its length from end to end. Next, double that measurement and note it down.
If you don’t have a necklace to use as a reference, you can use a tape measure or a piece of string to determine the perfect length.
You'll need:
  • Tape measure or ruler
  • String
  • Pen or a marker

Option 1:

Use a flexible tape measure

Place the flexible tape measure around your neck like a necklace, adjust it to the desired length and note down the measurement.

Option 2:

Use a piece of string

Place a piece of string around your neck like a necklace, adjust it to the desired length and mark where the string ends meet with a pen or a marker. Next, measure the string and note down the length.
