How to measure to wear a short jewelry chain

What are short chains?

Today we’re going to talk about short chains, the different ways to wear them, and how to measure for the length you need.

First off; What is a short chain?

These are small, dainty chains ranging from roughly 20mm to 50mm in length, and are used to further accessorizing body jewelry. One popular style is to wear it across the bridge of one’s nose, hence why they are sometimes called ‘nostril chains’, but of course they can be worn in a variety of other ways as well.

How do you measure short chains?

The length of chain you need is going to depend on your anatomy, and where your piercings are located.

The most simple way to measure the length you need is to get some string and stretch it across where you need the chain to go, then measure how long that segment is. We recommend adding an extra millimeter or two to that measurement, to ensure that it won’t be too tight across the bridge of your nose.

There are so many ways to accessorize and change up your look with short chains, we encourage you to experiment!
