Sizing Information

The diagram below shows the average lengths of necklaces. 

How to choose the right length:

14” – choker:

  • Fits the base of the neck.
  • Most versatile neckline.
  • DO wear chokers with tops that show off the neck (off the shoulder, boat neck and v-neck clothing).
  • DO embrace this latest necklace trend because it is a hit with all the popular retailers.
  • DON’T overdo it with an overly flashy choker, it’s likely to be a one-hit wonder.
  • DON’T go too tight! Make sure you can easily swallow by sneaking one finger between your neck and your choker.

16” – crew neck and 18” – jewel necklace:

  • DO invest in good pieces. Jewel length is the most popular length, you’re sure to have it a long time.
  • DO wear a pendant on these lengths with a V-neck (or ‘cheat’ a V-neck over a round neckline), or choose a rounded version to wear with rounded necklines.
  • DON’T look choked up by adding it to a high neckline.
  • DON’T forget to add personality with pendants.

20” – scoop & 24” – deep scoop (20" - 25"-matinee):

  • DO choose these lengths to elongate your neck.
  • DO highlight these pieces by wearing them with simple tops.
  • DON’T wear with plunging necklines. 
  • DON’T be afraid to layer these necklaces. 

30" to 33" – extra long:

  • DO wear with high necklines, to create drama and elongate the torso.
  • DO try doubling or tripling these lengths to add versatility to your accessories.
  • DON’T forget to layer these necklaces for a great multi-strand look.
  • DON’T wear extremely long necklaces if you are petite as they can overwhelm your figure.

Over 37" (rope):

  • Can be worn as a double or triple strand.
  • Perfect for day or evening wear.


45" - 48" (Lariat):

  • long strand with two (2) loose ends that can be wrapped around the neck and tied in the front. 
  • DO wear with a backless gown doubled around with the ends draped down the back.

Women Bracelet Size Guide:
To measure for a bracelet, wrap a flexible tape measure or a piece of string around your wrist just below the wrist bone. Pull the tape or string tight enough so that it is comfortable around your wrist but not cutting into your skin. Write down the measurement or cut the string and measure it. Add 1/2 inch to your measured size. Example: Wrist measurement is 6 1/2 + 1/2 = 7” Compare your bracelet size to the piece you are interested in. The most common size bracelet is 7.5"
