SIZING BRIDAL JEWELRY PROPERLY FOR THE BRIDE, THE WEDDING PARTY AND FLOWER GIRL
Sizing Bridal Bracelets & Bridal Necklaces
NECKLACE SIZES GUIDELINES
THE COLLAR NECKLACE~ 12 to 13 inches
Collars are 12 – 13 inches long. They are usually made up of three or more strands and lie snugly on the middle of the neck.
Collar necklaces lie snugly around the middle of the neck. They are a must-have when wearing V-necks, boat necklace and off-the-shoulder fashions.
THE CHOKER NECKLACE~ 14 to 16 inches
A choker is 14 – 16 inches long. This classic and versatile piece is appropriate with everything from casual to formal eveningwear, and complements almost any neckline.
Both classic and versatile, a 14-16 inch choker falls perfectly around the base of the neck. A simple choker necklace matches any outfit and just about any neckline.
THE PRINCESS NECKLACE ~ 17 to 19 inches
The princess necklace is 17 – 19 inches in length. The most common length for necklaces, it is well suited for crew and high necklines. It also complements low, plunging necklines. Because 18 inches is considered the classic length for necklaces, this is an excellent choice if you are not certain which strand length is most appropriate.
As the most popular necklace length, the princess necklace is best suited for either high necklines, strapless or V-neck.
Necklace lengths are measured from the base of the throat – if your neck measures 13 inches, then a 16 inch necklace will drape about one and one half inch below the base of the throat. A common approximation is to allocate one half inch of drape/inch of necklace length as outlined in the above photos.

Very Small = 6-6.5″

MEASURING YOUR WRIST:
To determine the bracelet size you need, measure the wrist with a soft flexible measuring tape and add approx. 3/4-1″ to the amount. If you do not have a measuring tape, you can use a ribbon or piece of string. Mark the length then measure with a ruler.
