Determining Proper Chain and Necklace Lengths

At J.R. Jewelers we want you to be delighted with your purchase and for the chain, necklace or pendant you select to hang perfectly around the neck of the recipient. Use this as a handy guide:

On small pendants and popular slide pendants, many women prefer a slightly shorter chain, or a choker length of 16 to 17 inches. Of course, size will depend on the size of the neck.

Standard diamond and/or colored gemstone pendants will usually work well with an 18 inch chain.

You will notice that we usually recommend a specific chain for our pendants. If the specified length we suggest is not what you desire, please contact us to designate the size you want.
