Sanctus | Vintage Silver-Tone Stainless Steel Elizabeth II Wheat Chain Necklace
How to find your necklace size
The perfect necklace length is subjective. The sketch is of a 6'2", medium-build model with a 14 1/2” (37 cm) neck. For most men, a 19 3/4” (50 cm) necklace is standard. But men aren’t ‘standard’.
It is up to you how low you want a necklace to fall, and that depends on the thickness of your neck, shape of your shoulders, and your height.
Find my necklace size
- Put a long piece of string behind your neck.
- Bring the ends together in front of your chest.
- Mark the string where you want the pendant to fall.
This will be where the top of the pendant falls. A chain will fall higher as it won’t be weighed down by a pendant. Now measure the distance between the marks to find your length.
You can also find your necklace size using a measuring tape in front of a mirror.
Measure your necklace
If you already have a necklace you like, lay it in a straight line and measure its full length, including clasp and ring to determine your size.

This vintage-looking silver-tone men's pendant features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II and the inscription ‘D.G. Regina’, meaning ‘By the Grace of God, Queen’.
The back of the pendant features one side of the iconic St. Benedict medal. The letters C S S M L – N D S M D translate to “may the holy cross be my light – may the dragon never be my overlord.” The encircled C S P B means “The Cross of Holy Father Benedict.” Surrounding these are the letters V R S N S M V - S M Q L I V B, which means “Begone Satan. Never tempt me with your vanities. What you offer me is evil. Drink the poison yourself!” At the top, the word ‘PAX’ stands for “peace.”
The pendant is made of surgical-grade stainless steel, and so is the double curb chain necklace on which it hangs. The double chain means that even if a link breaks, the necklace will not fall. I’ll be caught by the next link in the chain. Its durable lobster clasp and adjustable length give you power over where the pendant falls.
