Women's Necklace Sizing

Women's necklaces are worn at different lengths based not only on the style of the necklace - but on the statement you want to make. For a quick reference, this image shows where necklaces fall around the average woman's neck. Women with larger necks should typically go up one size of necklace for a similar fit.

Genuine Greek Leather with stunningly iridescent Black Moonstone (Larvikite) on a hand-formed silver filled bar. This stone from Larvik, Norway, looks black, grey and silver with bluish undertones. When it catches light, it changes colors - with iridescent silvers and shades of light blue glowing from the stone.

  • Genuine Greek Leather: 2mm for sizes 8 - 9.5, 1.5mm for other sizes.
  • Bracelet size: choose size
  • Stones: Larvikite, 6mm (aka Black Moonstone) - 5 stones on sizes 8 - 9.5, 4 stones on other sizes.
  • Hypoallergenic/Nickel Free: Yes
  • Jewelry will be nicely presented in a gift box wrapped with a ribbon!

Sizing your bracelet: Please see the About tab. This bracelet is adjustable, so you can wear it at your chosen size plus or minus 1/2".

Note: This bracelet is perfect for men or women. Bracelets sized from 8 - 9.5 will have 5 stones and 2mm Greek leather as shown in the photos. To fit better on smaller wrists, bracelets sized smaller than 8 will use 1.5mm Greek leather and have 4 stones.

How To Size Your Bracelet

Using a piece of string (or fabric measuring tape), measure your wrist just above the wrist bone (towards your elbow, not your hand). This is the circumference of your wrist. Depending on the type of fit you would like, add the following to your measured wrist circumference to get a final bracelet size:

  • Snug fit (won't move much) : add 1/4" to 1/2"
  • "Comfort" fit (will move, but stay above your hand): add 3/4" to 1"
  • Loose fit (may drape down on your hand a bit): add 1-1/4"

Pick the bracelet size closest to this final calculation. For example, if I measured my wrist as 5.75" and would like a snug fit, I would pick either size 6 or size 6.5 as my bracelet size. If I wanted a loose fit that would hang down a bit on the top of my hand, I'd pick size 7.

This bracelet is adjustable so you can wear it at your chosen sizeand plus or minus 1/2".

About Larvikite

Larvikite is known by many names - Labradorite, Blue Pearl Granite, Blue Norwegian Moonstone, Marina Blue Star and more... but Larvikite is its own gemstone and is different from Labradorite that it is commonly confused with. An igneous rock only found in the Oslo-rift near Larvik, Norway, Larvikite is prized for its high polish and the silvery-blue Iridescence of its feldspar crystals. In addition to using Larvikite as a gemstone, it is popular as a facing stone in buildings - used in New York City's United Nations building, many big banks and many pubs in the U.K.

Metaphysical Properties

Larvikite is believed to elevate consciousness and protect your aura, keeping it clear, balanced and protected.
