Choosing your size

We offer various standard sizes for all our pieces, but because everything is made to order, we're happy for you to request a custom size. Follow this guide to help you choose which size you'll need for each type of jewellery.

Necklaces

Our necklaces come in a few standard sizes: 15", 16", 18" and 20", each with a 2" extender chain in your chosen metal (unless you request otherwise). As a general rule, 15" is like a choker, 16" sits close to the neck, 18" hangs loosely around the neck and 20" hangs lower down the chest.

If you're unsure, try measuring a necklace you already own or wrapping a piece of string round your neck then measuring it against a ruler.

Top tip: If you're measuring for a choker make sure you can still comfortably fit two fingers between the string and your neck. If your necklace is too tight, it will put strain on the thread and fixings and may snap. Also, when your piece gets wet, the silk thread will contract, and if it's too tight it may be uncomfortable or snap.

Bracelets

Our standard bracelet sizes are S (6.5"), M (7") and L (7.5") and do not come with an extender chain (unless you request otherwise). You can also request a custom size if you'd like a more accurate fit.

If you're unsure which size you need, try measuring a bracelet you already own or wrapping a piece of string around your wrist and measuring it against a ruler. 

 

Top tip: When you're wrapping the string around your wrist, make sure you can still comfortably fit a finger between the string and your wrist. If your bracelet is too tight, it will put strain on the thread and fixings and may snap. Also, when your piece gets wet, the silk thread will contract, and if it's too tight it may be uncomfortable or snap.

Anklets

Our standard anklet sizes are S (8.5"), M (9") and L (9.5") and do not come with an extender chain (unless you request otherwise). You can also request a custom size if you'd like a more accurate fit.

If you're unsure which size you need, try measuring an anklet you already own or wrapping a piece of string around your ankle and measuring it against a ruler. 

 

Top tip: When you're wrapping the string around your ankle, make sure you can still comfortably fit a finger between the string and your ankle. If your anklet is too tight, it will put strain on the thread and fixings and may snap, particularly when you squat down and your ankle bends. Also, when your piece gets wet, the silk thread will contract, and if it's too tight it may be uncomfortable or snap.
