Thin slinky snake chains: 16", 18, 20, 22, 24, 26 & 30 lengths available.

A lot of people prefer closer fitting necklaces. Shorter length chains are can be specially made to order. contact me me with your requirements


I am unsure of what chain length I require?
Either measure a favourite necklace of a length that you like or if you are unsure about which length you require, use a piece of string with a knot in one end and bring the other end loosely around to where you wish the necklace to sit. (Please remember that the pendant will sit below this line - look at the approximate dimensions of each individual piece).

If the necklace is a gift, if you can, measure a chain that the person already wears. If this is not possible, please note that 16" is the standard length. If the length you purchase is incorrect I am happy to exchange it, provided the chain is returned unworn in its original condition.


Can I purchase an additional chain?
Yes, if you would like more than one length chain, extras can be purchased from me.

   RING SIZING - If you don't know your ring size...                                               ^ Back to Top ^


Determining your Ring Size:

1. Ring Sizer
Plastic ring sizers can be purchased from the 'accessories' section of the Gallery Link


2. High street jewellers will usually provide this service free of charge


3. Measure a ring of your own
If you already have a ring that fits the finger you wish to order it for, measure the inside diameter of it (in millimeters), enter this number (between 11.9mm and 25.0mm) into the converter below and click calculate to ascertain your approximate UK ring size.

Alternatively, measure the Circumference of your finger
Wrap a strip of paper or piece of string around your finger. Make a mark where the two ends meet. Use a ruler to measure the string or paper in mm (1cm=10mm) Then divide the number by 3.14. Enter the result in the calculator below.

I have made every effort to insure that the information above is correct. The best way to determine your ring size is with a finger sizer tool at your local jewellers.

It is possible to stretch or reduce most rings, such as wedding bands. If you have a ring that requires resizing, please contact me me with your enquiry.
