Chains made of precious metals have been in Top-3 favourite jewelries of fashionistas and designers for many decades. Sooner or later, you come up with an idea to buy a chain for yourself or as a present. And, immediately, a question arises — which chain size to select?
Our useful guide answers it clearly and fully. Save it in Favourites and share with friends on social networks.
Which chain length is preferable
In the classic variant, the size of a women's chain depends on the height of its owner: 40-50 cm chain is good for 165 cm heigh, 165-170 cm allow to choose any length, if you are above 170 cm, take a chain from 55 cm. Very short chains of 35-40 cm, like necklaces, should be acquired by owners of a long and graceful neck.
Chains for kids
If you're looking for a cross chain as a gift for your child, the preferred length is 30-35 cm, this accessory will be comfortable to wear and won't be taken off over the head.
Is a chain worn over clothes?
40-50 cm chains would do for pendants and crosses that should be on display. These jewelries lie right on the body. An original handcrafted 60 cm chain draws attention to a nice bust. Such handmade jewelries are usually worn over clothes. A 70 cm chain should be worn as an evening accessory. Wrap it twice around the neck or wear over a high-necked or bare-shouldered dress.
These are useful and general recommendations, and if you feel like bending the rules at some point, feel free to do it. After all, fashion is, first and foremost, a dynamic tool of self-expression.
