Men's Standard Necklace Sizes

45 cm NECKLACE

A shorter length that falls just around the base of the neck. Popular for beaded necklaces so they can sit above a crew neck t-shirt.

50 cm NECKLACE
A common length for men which falls right at the collarbone. Pendants will hide under a crew neck or show completely with a low v-neck or unbuttoned dress shirt.

55 cm NECKLACE

Falls a few inches below a collar bone and can be worn over or under a shirt. This is a common length for chains because they offer more breathing room.

60 cm NECKLACE

Extra long and is commonly used to keep religious or meaningful pendants under the shirt and closer to the heart. Falls just above the sternum.

*Please keep in mind that these are all approximations for an average woman’s or man’s height and size. Larger people will need longer lengths and petite ones will need shorter lengths.
