Jewellery Size Guides

Please feel free to use our sizing guides when deciding on the appropriate length for your necklace, bracelet and bangle requirements.  Our guides are here as advisories only.  

 

A GUIDE TO THE PERFECT NECKLACE LENGTH FOR YOU

 This is a simple guide to show various necklace lengths based on the average neck size  To obtain the same look and position of your necklace on the neck, please take into consideration to increase the length for larger neck sizes and reduce the length for smaller neck sizes.

HOW TO MEASURE THE NECK TO FIT A CHAIN

Place a thin strip of paper or flexible tape measure around your neck and start the paper where you would like your necklace to sit.  Join the paper or tape till it meets the start point and then place a small mark on the paper, or simply hold the tape in-between your fingers at the meet point.  If using paper, you can then lie the paper flat and measure, or if using a tape measure you will immediately see the result in cm or inches at the point in-between your fingers.  Doing it this way will gauge a better result to the correct necklace length for you.  Take into consideration any pendants or charms that will be part of the necklace.  Lengths on products are normally for the chain only.  Necklaces may sit slightly lower if a pendant/charm is included. 

   

 

 MEASURING YOUR WRIST TO FIT A BRACELET

Wrap a tape measure around the wrist on which you plan to wear your bracelet. Make a note of the number at the point where the tape meets the 0. To ensure the bracelet fits comfortably, add 1.5 cm. You can then add or subtract centimeters according to whether you prefer a loose, exact or tight fit.  If you don;t have a flexible material or paper tape measure to hand, simply wrap a strip of paper around your wrist and mark off the paper where the beginning of the paper strip meets.  Then use a tape measure to measure the length in cm or inches (whichever your prefer to use)  Please allow approx 1.5cm extra if you prefer a loose fit.

Measuring your wrist to fit a bracelet

 

MEASURING YOUR HAND TO FIT A BANGLE

Begin by folding your thumb across your hand as far as comfortably possible.  Then with your other hand take a flexible tape measure or slim piece of paper and wrap around the widest point of you folded hand.  This will allow the bangle to slide on comfortably and sit on the wrist without falling off once your hand is open again.  Hold the paper or measuring tape at the point the tape or paper meets from the start point.  If using paper, mark off with a pen and then measure.  If using a measuring tape, hold in-between your fingers where the tape meets the start point and you will see instant results in cm or inches.  If adding extra length for comfort, we would advise not too add too much length as this could result in the bangle becoming too large and could easily slip off the wrist.
