So you want to get someone a special piece of jewellery. You know the message you want to have embedded in Morse Code. How long should you get the necklace made for?
Measure your neck size. Neck size is probably the most important measurement for determining which necklace length will work best for you. To measure, wrap a soft tape measure around your neck, keeping the tape measure parallel to the floor as you measure. Then, add 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) to your neck measurement to calculate your minimum recommended chain length. For example:
a.- If you are a person with a neck size measuring 13 (33 cm) to 14 ½ inches (36.8 cm), an 18-inch (45.7 cm) necklace is a good choice for necklace length.
b.- If you have a neck size measuring 15 (38 cm) to 16 ½ inches (41.2 cm), a 20-inch (50.8 cm) necklace would be a good choice.
c.- If your neck size measures 17 (43.2 cm) to 18 ½ inches (47 cm), a 22-inch (55.9 cm) necklace would be a good option for you.
