How to Choose Your Chain Length

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.
