Each pendant is strung according to the customer's desired length at the time of purchase. |
This is to remove the need for extensions, which will make the necklace less sturdy.
My necklaces are not adjustable. So far I have found that most necklaces of this kind that claim to be "adjustable" turn out to be hanging from a cord with a slip-knot tied on the end - I use large easy to use lobster claw clasps on my work. Extension chains tend to be uncomfortable when yanked, so best bet is to get a sense of how long you'd like the necklace to be when ordering.
How to determine how long to make the cord:
Everyone seems to have a different preference for how they want to wear their pendants. You can select whatever length suits your taste - I cut each cord at the time I ship the necklaces!

About 18 inches usually puts the circular loops just above the shirt neckline of a v-neck t-shirt for most folks but that length may vary for especially busty or petite women. Bust size is more important than height - so if you're larger around the chest, you'll want to add length.
Length measurement includes the clasp and loops, from end to end of where the cording closes.
Personally I tend to wear mine around 17-18 inches, though larger loops I usually like to wear lower.
When in doubt, 19-21 inches seems standard for mid-sternum neckline gifts... I always ask though because everyone seems to have a different preference!
A quick way to measure is to take a favorite necklace and lay it flat, measuring with a ruler from one end to the other.
If you don't have that information handy, give me a height estimate and a guess on build - petite or larger and what style she might prefer, and with that information I can try to make a best guess!
Cord Color Options:
All necklaces come on the satin cord pictured in the first photo of the listing unless otherwise specified in the necklace listing, but you can ask for a different color in Notes To Seller when purchasing.
Some are shown in an alternate color and if no notes to seller indicate otherwise, I will ship the necklaces in the same color as used in the main photos of the piece.
However, there are other color options available - just specify your wish for a different color in the Notes to Seller section when purchasing!
