Necklace size guide

 Oliver & Myles Size Guide - Necklaces

The necklace size guide is a visual reference only. The circumference of your neck and size of the pendant will impact how your necklace sits on its own and with other styles.

How do I know my necklace size?

Like clothes, jewellery must be worn comfortably in order to look stylish and perfect. Choose the right necklace length to suit your style, body shape, and comfort level.

Collar: 38cm
Collar styles are designed to sit higher around the neck. Collar chains create a vintage, classic 90s vibe and look appealing on long slender necks and pixie-cut hairstyles. This length is particularly suitable for petite ladies.

Princess Necklace: 42cm
A short necklace designed to fall perfectly just below the base of the neck, resting around the collarbone. On petite women, this necklace will hang comfortably in position, however, on plus-size women, it might look more like a choker.

Matinee Necklace: 50cm
Emphasize your décolletage with the graceful drape of the Matinee necklace, which elegantly rests on the chest. For those with a moderate height and fuller body type, a medium-length necklace is the perfect choice.

How to measure your desired necklace length?

Our necklace length charts show the total circumference lengths for each necklace measured centimetres. There are two easy ways to measure the desired necklace length (total circumference).

1. Measure the length of your favourite necklace
Place your open necklace on a table. Using a ruler, measure from the outer edge of the clasp to the other end of the necklace.

2. Use a string
Stand before your mirror and bring a string around your neck and join both ends at the length you desire. Check the length by using a ruler to measure the string.
