This necklace measures 18” long and it is supposed to be worn close to the neckline. This necklace is also light in weight so it is incredibly comfortable to wear. Statement necklaces are a lot of fun because you can wear a simple minimal dress or outfit with it and the necklace helps to compose your look. You can make it even more outstanding when you pair it with a simple thin necklace that falls underneath this one. You will love this look for sure!
