How to select the right chain length for your pendant.........
16” Chain is a short chain that fits close around your neck. 16” chains are great to wear with a “V” neck top or button-down shirt. The 16” chain fits more like a choke chain around the throat. When buying a gift for a person that weighs over 150 lbs and is around 5’5” tall, we recommend selecting an 18” to ensure that the necklace will fit properly.
18” Chain is our most popular chain because it fits nicely around the neck coming down about 1”-2” from the throat. This chain length is comfortable to wear as it falls nicely in a “V” neck shirt or in a button-down top. When buying a gift for a person that weighs over 180 lbs and is around 5’5” tall, we recommend selecting a 20” to ensure the necklace will fit properly.
20” Chain is a medium length chain that lies nicely on the outside of a rounded neckline. Our 20” is a popular chain for the full-figured woman, as it will lie like an 18” chain on them. The 20” is also known as the winter 18” chain. When wearing bulky clothes around the neck this necklace length will act like an 18”.
24” Chain is a long chain that fits on the outside of collars on garments. This chain will normally lie about chest length. Great chain to use for charm holders. Though this chain may be long we do not recommend slipping this chain over your head as it causes stress/strain on the chain and clasp area; causing either to break over time.
30" Chain is a very long chain that will lie in the stomach area for a woman that is 5’5” but for a full figured woman can be a nice length to wear for a rounded neckline. This length of chain can be put on over your head without opening the clasp, even if you are wearing glasses. Great chain to use for charm holders.
How to Care for Your New Chain
Remove any chains before going to bed or taking a nap. Tossing and turning can cause excessive strain which can result in kinking, weaknesses and breakage. Remember your neck and head weigh about 11lbs and your chain weights about 5grams. Please do not wear your jewelry to bed or when taking a nap.
Remove your jewelry before you shower or bath. Chain ends that are glued together such as our leather and twisted cords will erode from the water, causing the ends to unravel and come apart over time. Soap also clouds jewelry making it loose its luster.
Remove your jewelry before you enter a swimming pool or Jacuzzi. The chemicals used both in the water and floating in the air will discolor Sterling Silver instantly and cause Bronze to permanently tarnish.
