Sizing Guide

The following are the most common necklace lengths and where they fall on the average female body (this will depend on your frame and build):

10 - 14" (25.5 - 35.5 cm): wraps closely around the neck
16" (40.5 cm): wraps loosely around the neck
18" - 20" (45.5 - 51 cm): sits on or just below the collarbone
22" (56 cm): lays at or above the top of the bust
24" (61 cm): lays at or just below the centre of the bust
28 - 38" (71 - 96.5 cm): hangs below the bust
40" (101.5 cm) and above: hangs at or below the navel


As a rough guide, standard bracelet sizes are:  

Baby up to 18 months
4.5" (11.5 cm)
Junior 5-7 yrs
6" (15 cm)
Older Child 9-12 yrs
6.5" - 7" (16.5 - 18 cm)
Teen or petite adult woman

To help you decide, you can measure yourself by wrapping a piece of string round your wrist (as tight or loose as you would like the finished bracelet to be) then measuring that.

I can alter the length of most jewellery items in my online shop, so if you would like a featured necklace or bracelet in a different length to that stated then please email me at before you order and I will let you know if this is possible.
