A chain that’s too short can make you look bulky if you have a larger build. If you are smaller, a tight chain can make you look thinner/weaker.

On the other hand, a chain that is too long will look oversized for someone who’s smaller. Those who are larger may look a bit more heavyset if their chain hangs too low.


The key is to find a good length in between too short and too long. Your personal preference and style also play a big role in what length you choose. Some people like to wear very short chains (chokers) and some may like chains that hang down low. Our most popular lengths are between 20" and 24".

Additionally, the specific chain type plays a role in what length is best. For example, tennis chains are most commonly worn at 18-20" but cuban chains are mostly worn around 24". Ultimately, it's about expressing yourself and picking whatever you like most.

This picture gives you an idea of what a 20", 24" and 28" chain will look like. If the length of the chain you want isn't shown here, use this as a guideline to get an estimate. Keep in mind, a 20" chain won't look the same on everyone. The same size chain will dangle down further on somebody who's smaller compared to someone much larger.
