How Items Are Sized
I have taken great care to accurately provide measurements for everything offered on the site.
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'd like 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.
