A great way to wear long necklaces is to layer them. The layering effect looks nice on both casual and dressy outfits, and always adds a little something extra to your look. We have a number of pieces that can work well when layered together.
What do I do if my necklace is too long?
To make a necklace longer: Open the clasp of the necklace and lace in the safety pin to one end. Then lace it through the other open end and close the safety pin. To add even more length, add two (or three) pins in a row.
How do you shorten a necklace chain without cutting it?
Simply put on your necklace, gather the excess chain at the back and slip an old earring through the chain. Put the back on the earring and turn the necklace right way around. Voila! No more snagged or hidden necklaces!
Is there a way to shorten a necklace chain?
To shorten an item, the jeweler simply measures how many inches need to be removed from one area of the item. Next, they take out that portion and then reattach the clasp end to the rest of the necklace or bracelet that’s been shortened.
How much does it cost to shorten a necklace?
To shorten a regular chain, the service is around $30-35. For thick chains in Cuban, curb, or Figaro style, the jeweler has to spend more time and labor to remove the links, so expect a corresponding increase of $20 or more in price.
