  • How to choose the right necklace length for a woman?
    The lenght of the necklace can play a big role in how you style your necklace of choice. Chains come in many lengths that change the way they fit each person. In addition, everyone’s body is different, and certain chains may fit some people better than others. Here are the guides to choose the right necklace length for a woman: Necklace Length Guide There are five common necklace size options for women: STANDARD LENGTH (ABOUT 18") Standard length necklaces measure about 18" long. They're great for day-to-day wear. The standard length sits right above your neckline. Add a pendant for a nice V-shape. They look great with crew necks, sweetheart, or v-necklines. CHOKERS (14"-16") Chokers today seem like a casual trend. Chokers are worn with formal cocktail dresses and different shirt styles. They look best with off-the-shoulder and boat necklines. This way you're not drawing all the attention to your shoulders. Instead, you're balancing it out while emphasizing your neck. MATINEE LENGTH (20"-24") As the name suggests, matinee necklace sizes are right in-between formal and informal. They sit between the collarbone and the bust. If you have a larger or taller neck, this will work better for you than the standard length. Like the standard length, you can wear this necklace size with almost anything. They work well over collared shirts and higher necklines like turtlenecks. Be aware of pairing large pendants with this chain. The longer pendants might end up right in your cleavage or disappear below your neckline. OPERA LENGTH (30"-32") This is the most dramatic necklace length. Like the opera, it's elegant but attention-grabbing. These necklaces fall on the bust or several centimeters below. If you have a high neckline, or you want to create the illusion of length, then find an opera length chain. They look wonderful with turtlenecks and boat necks. If you wear it to work, be careful to pair it with something more simple, like a solid color dress or shirt. ROPES (32" AND LONGER) Rope necklaces are sometimes difficult, but they can look great. They're longer than opera sizes, so if you leave it hanging around your neck it looks awkward. Most people wrap their ropes around their necks more than once to create a double strand. But beware that if you have a larger neck, it won't always lay at the right length. How to Find the Right Necklace Size by Your Height and Face Shape Now that we've gone over the necklace lengths, let's talk about choosing the right one for you. There are a few ways to do this, and one of them is to go by your height and face shape. If you're short or you have a shorter torso, stick with necklaces that aren't as long. Try on chokers or standard necklace sizes. Longer necklaces will cut off your length and make you look like a kid trying on mom's jewelry. Longer torsos or taller women can get away with longer lengths. They can wear opera length or ropes with ease. When you're looking at necklaces for face shapes, oval faces can get away with whatever they want. If you have a heart or diamond-shaped face, look for shorter necklaces. Women with round or square-shaped faces can wear longer necklace sizes. It will make their faces seem longer.
  • How to determine my ring size?
    Here is a simple way to measure your ring size: Take a piece of string, ribbon, thread, a thin strip of paper, or, perhaps a more common item in your home, floss and wrap it around your finger, close to the knuckle. With a pen, carefully mark the spot where the string overlaps with its end. Then, line that up with a ruler and take down its length in millimeters. You can follow the ring size chart below to determine your ring size (USA & Canada): Please note: String, thread, or floss can stretch, so try not to force your measuring tool too taut. If you do, your measured ring finger size may be larger than your finger actually is. Do not measure your fingers when they are cold, as your fingers are smaller. It is also not convenient to measure your finger on a very hot summer day. If your knuckles are very large, it is best to choose a larger size.
  • Why does silver jewelry tarnish and how to prevent it?
    Pure silver is far too soft to be used in it’s pure form for jewelry, that is why it is often mixed with other metals (called a mixture or an alloy). For example, sterling silver (also called 925 silver) is a an alloy of silver containing 92.5 percent of silver and 7.5 percent of another metal, most likely copper. Silver jewelry tarnish (or turn black, as many people usually called it) as a result of oxidation that is caused by either the silver or the other metals that are mixed with silver reacting to other chemicals (such as sulfur) with moisture. When silver products are exposed to salty air, cosmetics, perfumes, chlorine or sulfur (products such as household bleach, rubber bands, and some papers), high level of acidity or other strong chemicals, tarnishing will happen. Silver will generally tarnish quicker in high humidity climates and places with high levels of air pollution. To prevent silver jewelry from tarnishing or turing black: Keep your jewelry always clean. Make a habit of wiping down your jewelry when you remove it at the end of a long day. Using a soft cotton or fleece cloth, gently rubbing over jewelry regularly will help keep the shiny sheen on. Try to keep your skin dry when you wear jewelry. Store your silver jewelry appropriately in an air-tight zip lock bag and be sure to store jewelry separately. To create a protective barrier between your skin and the reactive metals, a cheaper, do-it-yourself way is to apply clear nail polish on your jewelry. Clean your tarnished silver with a silver polishing cloth, or a solution of silver cleaner and warm water.
