Chain Length Guide

All CITRUS necklace chains are available in 16" and 18" lengths minimum, and often additional lengths up to 36". 

QUICK TIPS for chain length selection for WOMEN:

A small-medium framed woman often wears 16" at the top of a crew neck shirt.  18" would be recommended for a V neckline. If you're not sure, 18" is a safer choice. 

A larger framed woman often wears 18" at the top of a crew neck shirt. 20" would be recommended for a V neckline. If you're not sure, 20" is a safer choice.

Measure!

Use a measuring tape or piece of string to measure around your neck where you'd like it to sit.  Or measure an existing chain in a length you love.

How does CITRUS measure chain length?

We measure the full length from end to end, including the clasp.

What about layering chains?

We recommend 2" - 4" between each chain for necklace layering. The closer they are in length, the more likely they will tangle.

What about chokers?

For an XS woman, 14" would be choker length. For a S/M woman, choose 15" and for a L woman 17" or 18" would often be choker length.

What about MEN?

Add 2" to the measurements above for men.

What about KIDS?

Necklaces are unsafe for children under 3. For children, remove 2" from the measurements for women.
