With different size women and various styles of necklines, measuring for your bridesmaid necklaces can be a trick task. Use our helpful tips and information below to find the perfect size necklace for each of your bridesmaids.
Measuring For Size: When picking the length of your necklace there are a few methods to assist you in figuring out the size needed.
1. Take a necklace that you already like the way it lays around your neck and measure that end to end.
2. Take a piece of string or thread, wrap it around the neck the way you want the necklace to sit, and measure that.
3. Keep in mind for any pendant style or y drop style necklaces that when selecting your length, you need to consider the length of the pendant in your size. The pendant will dangle down FROM the length you order the necklace in – it is NOT calculated in the length.
NOTE: We make our necklaces to measure from END TO END – INCLUDING the clasps. Please keep this in mind when selecting your size.
When You’re Not Sure of Length: Sometimes brides are not able to ask their bridesmaids for their sizes. Whether it’s because the jewelry is a gift and a surprise or it would be uncomfortable to ask the size – you’ll have to pick a size – and we have a great option: Extender Chains!
Extender Chain: Extender chains are an excellent upgrade when ordering your necklaces if you are unsure of the size needed. This also works well when ordering for a group of people or bridesmaids that have all different sizes. You can pick the smaller size necklace and then add a 1″ – 5″ extender chain for adjustability. An adjustable fit is a custom fit that works with any size and style.
