Ever wondered where our necklaces sit on the body? This is an illustrated guide to give you an idea of different necklaces lengths.
A 16 inch / 40 cm necklace is considered a choker. They sit at the base of the neck and nestle perfectly in the nook of your collarbone. Think of these as the perfect base layer for your layered necklace looks.
A 18 inch / 45 cm necklace which is known as princess is the most popular length for a necklace. It sits in the middle of your chest, beneath your collarbone.
Necklaces between 20" and 24" inches / 50 - 60 cm are known as matinee. They are designed to hang in the middle of your chest and work best as the longest layers on a layered look.
Necklaces between 20" and 24" inches / 50 - 60 cm are known as matinee. A 22" / 55 cm necklace sits between the collarbone and the bust. They work great as the last layer on a layered look.
When talking about the length of a necklace, we mean the measurement of the chain when it is unclasped and sat on a straight line.
