I have taken great care to accurately provide measurements for everything offered on the site because it is a peeve of mine when I have ordered things that arrive much smaller or larger than I had imagined from the images I saw. I really want you to know exactly what you're getting when you order something and eliminate that "Ewe...I thought it would be bigger," or the "Oh my Goddess! This thing's Huge!"
When a measurement for how tall a piece is given, it is taken from the top of the ear-wire to bottom of dangles (shown left) or from the top of the bale to the bottom of the pendant. Necklaces and chains are measured for their over-all length.
In cases where a pendant or other ornamentation has been added it will be listed as + 1" drop, +1-1/2" drop, etc. Please see the information below for how the beads and gems are sized.
