16", 18" and 20" Chain lengths. is now offering a 16" to 20" Necklace option on some of our most popular necklace styles!
An 18" chain is the standard necklace length and will fit the average woman well. However, there are several reasons that a 20 inch necklace or a 16 inch necklace is a better choice.

  • A 20 inch necklace hangs below the collar bone on most women and accentuates a Moderate V or Plunging Neckline.

  • For some women, an 18" necklace may fit more like a choker. A 20" necklace gives more breathing room and allows a pendant to hang in a more comfortable and attractive place.

  • A 20 inch necklace is a good choice if the necklace is to be worn over a turtleneck or cowl neck sweater.

  • A 20" chain is sometimes more proportionate with a larger Pendant.

  • A 16" chain is a good option for girls, petite women or when a choker look is desired.
