Style’s of Sterling Silver Necklace

Sterling silver necklace’s and sterling silver chains can come in many different shapes and sizes. Lengths of silver chains are usually measured in inches, and depending on how you would like the silver necklace to hang, we would recommend the following as a necklace guideline: –

The below image illustrates the appearance of different length necklaces worn by both ladies (left) and gentlemen (right).

Necklace Size Guide
Necklace Size Guide by Alfred & Co. Jewellery
  • Ladies Silver Necklace Length

The standard necklace sizes for women are as follows: –

16″ Necklace¬†– Choker length; this has the necklace sitting very closely around the neck.
18″ Necklace¬†– Collarbone length; still quite a short length which helps keep the necklace visible to others.
20″ Necklace¬†– A few inches below collarbone; here the length is a little longer which allows the necklace to sit a little lower.

22″ Necklace¬†– a 22 inch necklace will hang even lower, but still above the breastbone. Choose this length if you’re going for a relaxed/discreet look.

  • Mens Silver Necklace Length

The standard necklace length sizes for men are as follows: –

18″¬†Necklace – this size men’s necklace usually results in the chain sitting just beneath the collar, showing quite prominently on display.

20″ Necklace – a popular length for men, this allows the necklace to sit beneath the collar and still be visible depending on the type of top being worn.

22Necklace – this length allows the necklace to sit a little lower down beneath the collar and is suitable for those going for a more relaxed look or for people who are slightly taller.

24″ Necklace – this is one of the longer length of necklace’s which allows it to sit fairly relaxed and loose – usually finishing close to the heart – perfect if you’re attaching a pendant onto it.

30″ Necklace¬†– this is the longest necklace which we stock. If you’re looking for a very casual, laid back and relaxed look, a 30 inch silver necklace would be the perfect choice.

As you can see, there are a variety of different length necklace’s to choose from, but ultimately it comes down to personal preference. Using the necklace length guide above should hopefully help make your choice that little bit easier.

Sterling silver necklaces and chains come in a range of different styles to suit different tastes. Here we are going to talk about some of the key sterling silver necklace styles and hopefully help make selecting your next silver necklace a little bit easier. Key silver necklace styles include:-

Silver Curb Necklace

A curb style silver necklace is probably the most popular style sterling silver necklace due its design simplicity. A curb style sterling silver necklace has a classic design with flat interlocking curb links. A curb style sterling silver necklace is a very popular choice for both men & women alike due to the¬†understated & casual look it delivers. The thinner curb chains work very well with silver pendants. An example of a curb style silver chain can be seen below: –

Silver Chain 6.7mm
Curb Style Silver Necklace

Figaro Silver Necklace

Again a Figaro style silver necklace has flattened links similar to the curb style, however where this style differs is in how the connection and size of the links vary – the Figaro style silver chain usually has two or three shorter connecting curb links alternating with longer connecting links. If you’re looking for a silver necklace which offers something a little different, the Figaro style sterling silver necklace is an excellent choice.

Sterling Silver Necklace Figaro 13mm
Figaro Style Silver Necklace

Mariner or Anchor Silver Necklace

The Mariner silver chain style is very similar to the Figaro silver necklace style, with the main difference being that the mariner chain alternates a single, small, round link with a larger oval link. These links closely resemble the typical chains attached to anchors for boats hence the alternate style name of “anchor necklace”.

There is something exceedingly special about a dog tag necklace which ensures they consistently remain at the forefront of fashionable neckwear.

  • Reduce Inflammation; A consequence of the improved blood circulation is a reduction in inflammation. This in turn can aid in pain reduction and an overall feeling of improved health in general.
  • Promotes Relaxation; Magnetic forces are said to help in the promotion of relaxation. This is said to be as a result the production of the hormone melatonin in the body which helps us know when to relax. A consequence of this is: –
  • Better & Deeper Sleep; the promotion of relaxation has a knock on effect on the promotion of a deeper sleep. Again this boils down to the fact that you have more of the melatonin hormone being produced. A result of improved sleep leads to an overall better feeling and in turn;
  • Positive Mental Attitude; think back to the last time you had a nice long deep sleep – remember how great you felt when you woke up in the morning? More energy, refreshed and ready to fight the day!
  • Fashionable & Stylish; lots of celebrities have been seen wearing a magnetic bracelet – the likes of David Beckham, Will Smith & Christian Bale have all been seen donning a nice magnetic bracelet.

Do Magnetic Bracelets Work?

But after taking into account the above benefits, the question remains, do they really work? Unfortunately the answer to this question isn’t straightforward. The fact is, there are lots of people out there who do find that by wearing magnetic bracelet’s they see lots of health benefits. There are numerous reports of people who have started wearing magnetic bracelet’s feeling much healthier as a result. This healthier feeling may come in many forms and guises, such as reduced arthritic pain, having more energy, and feeling overall more positive and revitalised.

Mens Necklaces

Mens necklaces have always been an important fashion accessory of choice worn by men. Alfred & Co. Jewellery have a wide range of mens necklaces to choose from. We specialise in supplying mens necklaces which are made of high quality premium sterling silver.

Mens necklaces are an excellent mens gift idea; when looking for a new mens necklace, there are a number of different factors which need to be considered. These can include some of the following: –

  1. Style – the style of mens necklace is of crucial importance. For example, would you prefer a curb link design or figaro link design? Alfred & Co. Jewellery offer a range of different styles of mens necklaces to choose from.
  2. Width – how wide would you like the mens necklace to be? The width of a mens necklace impacts the overall weight of the necklace. So therefore, if you are simply looking for a lightweight mens necklace, you would be much better going for one of our smaller width mens necklaces similar to the mens necklace below.

    Thin Mens Necklace

    The above image shows our 2.12mm width curb style mens necklace. This mens necklace is made from premium Italian 925 sterling silver. Our 2.12mm width mens necklace would be an excellent choice for someone who is seeking a discreet, lightweight and classically designed mens necklace.

  3. Length – the length of the men’s necklace is again of high importance. Depending on the type of look you are going for, will depend on the length of mens necklace you should buy. You can use the necklace size chart below to get an idea of how the length would look on an average sized person.

    Necklace Size Chart – Alfred & Co. Jewellery
  4. Cost Рobviously the cost of the mens necklace is an important consideration. You need to ensure that you can afford the particular mens necklace you are purchasing. Typically, the heavier the mens necklace, the more expensive it will be Рthis is simply because more raw material e.g. sterling silver, is required to make heavier necklaces than lighter necklaces.
  5. Material – the material which a mens necklace is made from is also a factor you will want to consider. Alfred & Co. Jewellery specialise primarily in mens silver chains. Our mens necklaces are made from Italian 925 sterling silver ensuring the highest quality mens necklace possible.
