Jewellery Styling Tips Necklace Length

Considerations relevant to selecting jewellery include your height and overall build, as well as the length of your neck.

In the main, you should choose jewellery which harmonises with your height and size – so, taller people should wear longer pendants, perhaps 70cm to 90cm in length, while shorter people should keep necklaces to 40 to 50cm.

However, you may also want to distract attention from part of your body – a long neck, for example – or draw attention to something by using jewellery as a ‘focal point’.

Our Styling Lunches will give you plenty of chance to see this in action, but in the meantime, here are some tips on length:

Sinade is our shortest model, at 5’ 4”, so a short chain length (45cm show here) really suits her, harmonising with her height. Alternatively, if she wanted to look taller, a medium length chain would draw the focal point further down her body.

We have a great selection of necklaces in this length, including Blossom, Chavin, Folli Follie, Nikki Lissoni, Swarovski and Tales from the Earth.

Rhian is average height, at 5’ 6”. The medium length chain shown here (60cm) really suits Rhian’s height, working well in proportion to her height.

We have a great selection of necklaces in this length, including Nikki Lissoni and Tales from the Earth.

Laura is our tallest model, at 5’ 10”. The long length chain at 90cm works really well to be in keeping with her height, making her look lean and elegant. Alternatively, if Laura wanted to draw attention away from her height, a shorter piece worn in the space below her collarbone would become a focal point, drawing attention up her body and away from her height.

Nikki Lissoni is the perfect designer for 90cm length chains, and with her interchangeable coins, you can build a great collection of necklaces designed by you!
