Jewelry Sizing Guide
Find Your Necklace Size
One of the easiest ways to make sure you will LOVE your Silver & Ivy piece is making sure it is the right fit. To long and it could be hidden under clothing, too short and it might feel too tight on you and then you don't want to wear it.
On an "average" height/size woman here are where necklaces usually fall:
16" Falls at the base of the neck
18" Standard size and sits just below the collar bone
20" Sits halfway down the neckline
22+ sits well below most necklines
Take time to measure!
Every body is so different and depends on height, size, and personal preference. To make sure the fit is absolutely PERFECT for you and your body measure!
If you are gifting the necklace for someone else measure your own necklace and do your best to approximate length based on where it lies on you and what you know about their size.
18" chains are our most common so if you're not sure, that is a good bet.
If you are more petite most go with the 16" and 20" if you like it a little longer than average.
Find Your Ring Size
There are a number of different ways to find your perfect ring size.
1 - Go to a jeweler - ANY jeweler would be happy to do it free of charge and it usually just takes a couple of minutes.
2 - Measure yourself
Finding out your ring size is easy to do at home with these four things:
- A piece of paper
- A tape measure or ruler
- Pen or pencil
Here’s what you do:
Step 1: Cut a thin (and long) strip of paper.
Step 2: Wrap the paper around your ring finger just below the knuckle (you’ll want to make sure your ring can easily fit over this part).
Step 3: Once it’s snug you’ll want to mark where the two ends meet with your pen or pencil (see photo above)
Step 4: Flatten out the thin strip of paper and measure how many inches from the mark you just made to the end of the paper you used.
Step 5: Match that measurement with the corresponding ring sizes, below.
Things to Remember:
- The average women’s ring size is 7
- The average men’s ring size is 10
- Measure the finger you're planning on wearing (all fingers are different sizes and even each hand has different sizes)
- Measure your finger at the END of the day
- Do not measure your finger in extreme heat/cold
- Keep in mind you're fingers are not exactly the same on each hand
- If your knuckle is much bigger than the base of your finger, measure both areas and find a size in between
