The Proper Length for Your Necklaces and Bracelets
"When you are picking out yourself or your bridesmaids jewelry, the average length is 7 plus, which is 7 ½ because it gives you a little extra room. If everybody are on the small side, then go with a 6 ½. The best thing to do is get your bracelets made with a half inch to a one inch silver or gold chain extender so that you can adjust the size. This way you will have the perfect fit for everyone. For necklaces, most people want them to land right about here (Cathy points to her own neck and doesn’t specify in words the exact point.), depending on the drape of your dress at your neckline. Usually that’s about a 16 ½ on younger girls up to an 18. Again the best thing is to get those built with an adjustable extension on the back and to make that prettier on the end of the extension we will add a pearl or a crystal, or some kind of bead that matches the beads in the necklace and the beads in the dress. So the extender drops down a little in the back and makes a pretty accent."
