How long should a men’s necklace chain be?

This is a question we get asked quite frequently, but unfortunately there isn’t one straightforward answer to this; this is simply because everyone is different and people have different tastes and styles – thank goodness as well because wouldn’t it be boring if we all looked and acted the same?! Typically we recommend that a men’s necklace should be a minimum of 18 inches, but if you are considered tall or you would like the necklace to hang with a more relaxed look and feel, then an even longer length would be better. If you’re unsure, we would recommend either a 20 inch or 22 inch length necklace length for men.

What is the best length for a women’s necklace?

The best women’s necklace length again comes down to personal preference. If you are wanting to wear your necklace so that it is more visible we would always recommend a shorter length of around 16 inches. If you are looking for a more casual and relaxed look then a longer necklace length would be more appropriate. Ultimately though, you can never have too many necklaces, so it is a good idea to mix up your necklace lengths so that you have a mixture to choose from depending on how you feel and what looks best on the day.
