What size chain or necklace should I choose? and most importantly, what is the best measure for me or for the person I want to give it to?
This decision will depend on the person who takes him to feel comfortable with him and therefore, to use it more often. If you want to buy a necklace for yourself or give it to someone, you should read this post yes or yes.
Talking about jewellery is no longer synonymous with fashion, it no longer only involves the use of gold, silver, diamonds and precious stones. Jewellery has followed a path of transformation in which the materials that make it up are no longer what represents its main value.
And there are several factors to consider and we will try here to explain the details that may be important and that you may not have known. If you have an idea of the collar or necklace you need for a perfect combination, you can contact us. Here at Love Lockets you will find a wide range of different products you can wear.
To begin with there are several usual measures of chains and depending on their length are located in one place or another neck and neckline.
- The measurements and their position in the body
- Different measures of collar and its position in the body.
- The different measures of collar and its position in the body
You can get an idea in this list
|Length||Style||How to wear||What to wear it with|
|35 cm||Collar||Tight around the neck.||Clothing with open collar, such as lapel necks, V-neckline, without shoulders.|
|40 cm||Choker||Firmly against the base of the throat.||Almost everything.|
|45 cm||Princess||On the collarbone.||Almost everything.|
|50 cm||Matinée||Between the collarbone and the bust.||Clothes for work or to practice sports.|
|55 cm||Ópera||On the bust.||Between the clavicle and the bust.|
|60 cm o mas||Rope||Exactly beneath the center of the bust.||Worn with something elegant.|
All these measures of length are without the closure since normally, this is not taken into account at the time of taking the measurement.
We will explain quickly and easily the way to know the size of the necklace you want: Choose from among your necklaces that you are more comfortable, extend it and measure it from end to end, without counting the closure. Or, measure the perimeter of the neck and add between 5-10cm to know the minimum ideal size for you.
Let’s say that these are the safe methods for the choice to be correct.
But if what you want is to go a little beyond and to know the one that most favors you, continues reading and we explain it to you.
The variables that you must keep in mind
If you are a tall person, any measure can be good, although we recommend not using the shorter ones. They could be exaggeratedly fair in your body.
You’re in luck if you’re of medium size because they can all look good on you.
And if you are rather short, you will favour those that are located in the clavicle or just below.
The necklaces soften and visually shorten the long and thin collars which can help you if this is your neck type.
On the other hand, if you have a short or wide neck you should use larger measures (50 cm, for example) that lengthen and stylize it.
Size of the body
Here we must take into account, above all, that if the volume of the body is voluminous, it will be necessary to flee from short measures. But if what you have bulky is the chest, you should not use measures of more than 45cm. In that case the necklace or pendant could fall in the middle of the neckline and surely you will not like it.
Shape of the face
When the face is oval, all measures feel good.
If the face is round, avoid the necklace and try to make the necklace V-shaped. This will make the shape of the face look longer.
For elongated faces or with pointed chin, the chokers are the best option because it softens the features.
As for clothes, it is important to consider what type of clothes you wear the most. Or the type of garment that you will wear with the necklace, if for example, you want it for a special occasion.
The necklaces are very tight in the neck are always good with low-cut or no shoulders.
Choker and princess, they fit with almost everything.
If you want to wear the pendant over a neck (shirt, blouse or turtleneck), the recommended measure is 50 cm and up.
After all this information, we hope you understand the type of necklace you will need if you want to complement your outfit. Remember that if you have any questions about what we are explaining here, we would appreciate it if you would explain it to me in the comments.
