How to Measure Jewellery

How to Measure Jewellery

First you need to decide where you would like the necklace to sit – on your collar bone, or maybe on your upper chest. Perhaps you like it to sit loosely on your lower chest… 

Second, take a string and measure the total necklace length you would like. 
If you do not have a string see the image below. 

Keep in mind that the chain lengths mentioned on our website do not include the pendant. 
The size of the pendant varies in accordance with the name and style you choose. The average pendant size is 0.75” – 2” (2 – 5 cm). 

So the total length of necklace would be the length of the name pendant and the chain you have chosen. 

For example, if you order a name necklace with a 16” chain, the total length of the necklace would be 16.75” – 18”, depending on the name and style you ordered. 

The chains in the picture below do not include the pendant!

Ring Size Guide

CUT a strip of paper about 8 inches long and about 0.5 inch wide. 

WRAP the paper strip around the widest part of the appropriate finger. 
Often, this will be at a joint, but it may be in a number of locations and may differ from hand to hand. 
You can use an old ring to help find the widest spot.

USE a pen or pencil to mark the point on the paper where the ends of the paper strip overlap 
(form a complete circle).

USE a ruler to measure the length from the outside end to the mark on the paper to the nearest millimeter,rounding up if necessary. 

FIND the closest measurement on the size chart to determine your ring size.
