    • 16" length - Falls perfectly around the base of the neck like a collar. On a petite woman, it will hang loosely around the neck and fall just at the collarbone. It might fit more like a choker on a bigger bone woman.
      • You can wear this with almost everything except a turtleneck.
    • 18" length - Sits nicely on the collarbone. 
      • ThIs very versatile and works well with all styles including business attire.
    • 20" length - Will fall just below the collarbone.
        •  You can wear this for business attire, formal wear, or giving some pop to a casual outfit.
      • 22-24" length - Depending on your height, it will fall between the collarbone and the breast.
        • Works best with clothing that does not bare cleavage as they will compete for attention. 
      • 24-28" length - Will fall at or below the breast depending on the length.
