Not sure which necklace size to order? Use the list below as a guide to traditional necklace lengths for an average woman's body. Of course, everyone's preference for necklace length is unique, depending on body shape, preferred fit, and the style of necklace. For example, a delicate necklace will fit differently than a chunky one, and the exact length of a long necklace is not as critical as that of a short one.
12-14 inches: around neck (choker)
16 inches: at neckline
18 inches: at collarbone
20 inches: a few inches below collarbone (mid-chest)
22-24 inches: at or just above décolletage
24 inches: just below décolletage
30 inches: a few inches below décolletage
36 inches: almost to waistline
How to measure your necklace size: The best way to determine the proper length to order is to measure a necklace you own in similar style. Another method is to drape a string around your neck, and to cut it once you have determined the length that suits you. Use that measurement as a guide to ordering the closest length available in the style of your choice.
Make sure that your new bracelet fits you perfectly by measuring your wrist or a favorite bracelet before ordering. The average women's bracelet size is 7.5 inches, though we all know that wrists come in as many shapes and sizes as we do. Therefore, it is very important to double-check your wrist and bracelet size before ordering. Remember, your typical clothing size may not correspond to your wrist or bracelet size.
X-Small: 5.5 inches
Small: 6 inches
Medium: 6.5 inches
Large: 7 inches
X-Large: 7.5 inches
XXL: 8 inches
Please note that the sizes above are actual wrist sizes ( 1 to 1.5 inches will be added as required to your wrist measurement—see below). If a bracelet is either adjustable or has an extender chain, it will be noted in its product description. For beaded stretch bracelets a further option may be presented as the comfort level. This option will allow the individual to indicate preference on the how they want the bracelet to fit. The options will generally be snug, comfort, loose.

Avoid using perfume and creams which will be in direct contact with your Victorian choker necklace. Generally, cleaning should be a last resort - so wait until it is absolutely necessary. Do not dry clean - dip a cloth in very mild, diluted detergent (the same type you use for lingerie/delicate) dab the lace gently, carefully avoid wetting any metal components and beads. Allow the choker to dry flat on a towel in a warm place. Never wring or scrub. Dab lace gently in a downward motion, do not "sweep" horizontally across the lace or you may pull it out of shape.
Fold your Victorian lace choker carefully and store out of direct sunlight
