  • Add 2 INCH / 5 CM to this size. Focus on the fact that this is a convenient length for chokers, the size of which is usually 16 INCH / 41 CM

Your height is another factor to consider when choosing the perfect necklace chain to fit your body type perfectly.

  • Low Height: If you are less than 5'4 / 162 CM, the necklaces with a length of 16-20 INCH / 41-50 CM are the most suitable

  • Medium Height: With a height of 5'4 - 5'7 / 162 -173 CM, you can wear a necklace of any length.

  • You are Tall: if you are more than 5'7 / 173 cm, necklaces of any length are suitable. Long chain necklaces look best on tall women, emphasizing static.
