How to choose the right length for your necklace
When you like a necklace, it is essential to check if its length will really suit you. It's surprising how much the length of a necklace truly determines the style and look you want.
To give you an idea, you can already refer to our diagram which illustrates the main collar lengths. But the diagram will only give you a rough idea of how the collar should fit if you are of average height and build. In reality, how the necklace will fit depends a lot on your neck size, height, body shape and style of dress.
We therefore really advise you to take a cord that you will adjust to the length of the necklace chosen to visualize it worn on you.
This will save you any disappointment.
It is also important to ask yourself a number of additional questions. How are you going to wear it? On your skin, or over your clothes? Will this favorite necklace enhance you and does it suit your clothing habits, the openings of your clothes and their necklines?
A few tips for choosing the right necklace length
If you have a pretty head carriage and delicate skin, anything goes. On the other hand, if you want to emphasize your head posture by refining your neck, you have several strategies:
- Very short choker and choker necklaces are recommended for people who are rather slender and young. If you have a rather strong or short neck, chokers will tend to "pack" your bust.
- Clear the base of your neck by choosing a sufficient length of necklace so that it is positioned at least 2 cm from the base of your neck.</p >
- Don't be afraid of chunky chains and chunky necklaces. It will also tend to thin your neck and make it appear more slender.
- If you have a weakness for fine, delicate jewelry, then extra care must be taken to ensure that the length of the necklace is long enough. A very thin necklace that is too short will not tend to make you thinner.
- A necklace with a pendant will form a triangle at the base of your neck, which will slim and lengthen your neck advantageously.
If you are of a certain age:
- Go for slightly longer necklaces that will highlight your bust or collarbone lines and draw attention away from any wrinkles and blemishes on your neck.
- Chokers and chokers will tend to draw attention to small skin imperfections.
- Also avoid really delicate and finely crafted necklaces if you don't want to draw attention to small skin imperfections.
- Imposing necklaces and large meshes are really interesting as they will divert attention and make you forget all those little skin imperfections.
If you wear your necklace over your clothes:
- The length of your necklace should generally reach the level of your solar plexus (about 60 cm).
- If your clothes are thin, you can in a pinch wear it a few inches above (about 55cm).</p >
- Choose longer necklaces and long necklaces when wearing large sweaters or turtlenecks.
