When we are buying jewelry online, looking through a window, or exploring the glass displays of a jewelry store, one of the things that we typically do not take into consideration is the chain length of the necklace. On the other hand, it has the potential to play a significant part in the way you accessorize with the necklace of your choice. Chains are available in a variety of lengths, each of which creates a unique look and feel when worn. In addition, every person has a unique physique, which means that particular chains may look better on certain individuals than on others.
At The Irish Jewelry Company, the standard length that is considered typical for the majority of our coordinating necklaces is 18 inches “. We’ve worked with a wide range of clients and designs, and this length seems to be the most versatile overall.
However, we do offer several of our designs in a chain length that is either shorter or longer. (The lengths of the chains are included in the description of the product.) Even if the preferences and/or body types of each individual client might vary, the standard chain length that we propose for our adult male consumers is at least 18 – 20 inches “.

How to measure necklace length?
How exactly do you measure your neck to determine what size chain you need or whether or not your neck circumference corresponds to the average length of a necklace? Because the circumference of each person’s neck varies, prospective customers are encouraged to take their own measurements before making a purchase to ensure that the chain they select will be an ideal fit.
To begin, place a gentle measuring tape around your neck using a measuring tape. Your neck’s circumference will be calculated based on where the two ends meet. If you do not have a flexible measuring tape, you can use a ribbon instead. Mark the point where the two ends of the ribbon meet, and then measure out the length of the ribbon.
This method is most effective for determining your typical necklace length, but it may also be used to determine with high precision the appropriate size for a choker necklace. Once you’ve determined the circumference of your neck, you may use the chain’s length to estimate where it will rest on your body.
