{HOW TO} Choose the Right Chain Length

You've worked hard on creating the perfect pendant, now it's time to show it off as a necklace. What size chain should you choose? The answer to this question largely depends on what kind of look you're going for, but you should also consider the size of the wearer as well. Our very own Lora Curran is modeling a group of necklaces to give you an idea of the different chain lengths.

Keep in mind that Lora is 5'5" tall and has an average/slim build. That said, a person who is more petite might have a wider neck and a 16" chain will be too short and a tall person with a short torso might find that 36" is too long on her. The best way to get the exact size is to take a measurement, either with a tape measure or a string and ruler. Custom lengths are easy to accommodate when you're buying chain by the inch and adding your own clasp -- it's a perfect fit every time!
