Measurement Guide Baltic Amber Gemstone Jewellery
Measuring for Baltic Amber Jewellery
Measuring for a Necklace
Measure in centimetres leaving a 2 finger gap between the neck and the tape. Ensure it is not too long as they can get it over their chin and into the mouth. Amber is not for chewing and as it is a resin it will shatter under pressure. If it is too tight it could be uncomfortable and pose a risk. We sell necklaces from 28cm up to 40cm for children and 40cm to 70cm for adults.
Measuring for Anklets and Bracelets
Ensure the fit is snug and not too loose as it will roll over the ankle and fall off. If it is too tight it will become uncomfortable. Measure the child in the standing position to ensure the ankles can flex correctly with comfort when walking. Measure in centimetres using a measuring tape or a piece of string and a ruler. You should be able to get the tip of your finger under the tape. Please note, children between 3 and 5 years old should wear as an anklet and not a bracelet.
