The best way to estimate the right size or length for you is to measure a necklace, bracelet, or ring that fits the way you like. People have very different neck, wrist, and finger sizes, so when in doubt, measure! We provide measurements for all of our products and many of our necklaces and bracelets have adjustable fastening your ideal fit. If you are buying a gift for someone, here are some guidelines that will help.
How do I choose the necklace length?
- 12-15" is choker length. It will fit up on the slender part of the neck. This is a fun length for children & teenagers, petite or slim women, or people who really like chokers (not everyone does!). 15" should sit right at the base of the neck, near the hollow of the throat. This is a great length for slim, young, and/or active women. It will fit inside most necklines and won't get in your way if you are running around. Again, people have very different neck sizes, so it is best to check before ordering a necklace of this length. Many of our 15" necklaces have a 2" adjustment chain, allowing the necklace to go from 15"-17" depending on where you attach the clasp - please read the necklace description for info.
- 16" is a standard short necklace length. This should come about 1" to 2" below the hollow of the throat. Perfect for ladies who like a shorter length without being too tight.
- 17" is a good intermediate length, and a nice choice for a larger or taller woman who likes her necklaces to not be too long or too short. Many of our 17" necklaces have a 2" adjustment chain, allowing the necklace to go from 17"-19" depending on where you attach the clasp - please read the necklace description for info.
- 18" is a standard medium length, it should hit about 3" to 4" below the base of the throat. This can be a comfortable choice for women who are of medium build or are taller than the average.
- 20" and longer, is a great choice for women who like their necklaces to come to the center of the chest, be worn over turtlenecks or sweaters, or who have larger neck sizes.
- "Opera" length describes a necklace of about 32" or longer, that can be worn long over dresses, sweaters, or turtlenecks and usually can be worn in a variety of creative ways. This can be a great length for the young and fashionable who like versatility in their jewelry, and can also be the perfect choice for an older woman who has arthritis or trouble with clasps - they can simply slip the necklace over their head for easy enjoyment!
Other things to consider is if you are picking a necklace for a special occasion measuring against the neckline of your outfit. Use a flexible tape measure or a string to measure the total length.
How do I choose the right bracelet size?
Measuring is still the best option, measuring your wrist and add 0.08” (2mm) or 0.25” if you prefer a looser fit to get your ideal size. To measure your wrist use a flexible measuring tape and with your palm open and facing up, wrap the measuring tape around your wrist, just above your wrist bone. Or you can use a string or floss with your palm open and facing up, wrap the string or strip of paper around your wrist, just above your wrist bone. Mark where the ends meet with a pen or a marker. Next, lay the string flat and measure it to where you've made the mark to find your wrist size and note it down.
All of our bracelet sizes vary due to the differing designs. They range from 6” to 8.5”. However, the majority of the bracelets only come in one-size with a length that is adjustable. The leather bracelets usually offer two loops, and the shorter or larger loop allows 0.5” or 1” difference in length. The metal bracelets have an extension tail that allows 0.5” - 1.5” difference in length depending where it is clasped.
How do I choose the right ring size?
Measure a ring that fits the way you like or measure your finger. U.S. ring sizes follow a scale of numbers (and half numbers). You can measure using either string or floss. Wrap it around the base of your finger, marking where the string or floss first overlaps with a pen. Then, line that up with a ruler and take down its length in millimeters. Those units match up to your finger’s width in millimeters: A ring size 3 fits a ring finger (or any finger) that is 14 millimeters across, and the sizes climb from there. Consider your knuckle. If you know your knuckle is on the larger side, you should order half a size bigger than what your finger alone indicates, otherwise you won’t be able slide a ring into the right place. Ensure accuracy with multiple tries, we recommend measuring your finger three to four different times because the size actually fluctuates depending on temperature: It can be smaller the colder you are and more swollen if you’re overheated.
Typically women’s rings are commonly between sizes 3 and 9, with the average size between 5 and 8, while men’s rings are usually sized between 8 and 14. We offer ring sizes between 5.5 and 9. If you are able to stop in the store we happy to measure your finger or measure your ring for you.
