Looking for a strong, smooth silver cable chain that won't kink? Here she is!
This 1.99 mm cable chain is sturdy enough for some of your heavy pendants and polished brightly with a Spring Ring Clasp.
Here's a quick run down on chain lengths for women:
16''- typically hangs at thecollar bone. This length is good for above the neckline length. It can feel a little tight on some people.
18''- typically hangs right at thetop of yoursternum. This is themost commonlength chain
20''- typically hangs about 1'' below the top of the sternum but also a comfortable size fortalleror largerpeople
24''- typically hangs atheart level. This is a great length for larger pendants or pieces you want to wear on your torso without having the piece right on you chest.
30''- typically hangscenter of chest. This length is nice for a variety of sized pendants. Be aware that it often hangs front and center of your chest.
***I just said "typically" a lot. Even if you're the same height as me, there are a number of factors that can contribute to chain fit. Most chains can be shortened. My favorite solution (especially if you're deciding between sizes) is to have a chain extender added so you can wear it 2-3'' longer.
Here's a quick run down on chain lengths for men:
18''- typically hangs at thecollar boneand not usually comfortable to most, but this length is good forchildren, especially if you're wanting a longer chain
20''- typically hangs at thetop of the sternum, like an 18'' chain would on a woman, but in my experience this is not the most popular chain length for men
24''- typically hangs nearcenter of sternum. This is themost popular sizechain for men and what I typically recommend. It's long enough to go over necklines (even V-neck) and not too long to get in the way.
30''- typically hangs a littlebelow heart level. This is a good chain length for larger or taller men that want a longer chain or as a more dramatic length for a pendant.
***Again, that's a lot of "typically." Men tend to need longer chains. As a rough rule of thumb, I'd say add 2 inches to a chain that fits a woman if you want the fit to be the same for a man, maybe even 3-4''
