How to Find Your Perfect Chain Necklace

When it comes to the chain necklace, there are a lot of styles that you can choose from. You may want to go for a thinner and lighter option or something thicker that will stand out against your shirt. And then there is the question of how long you want it to be. The standard lengths that are used in the jewelry industry include chokers at 16 inches, princess necklaces at 18 inches, matinee necklaces at 24 inches, and opera necklaces at 28 to 36 inches.
