If you are buying jewelry for the necklace, it is a good idea to get a length chart for the exact length of the necklace you are considering purchasing.
In the chart below, the size of the gemstones is indicated in parentheses.
Length is the length of each gemstone, while width is the width of each diamond, etc. The width of a diamond is usually measured in millimeters.
