The Sundial is a beautifully simple instrument used to tell time based upon the shadow cast by the sun onto the face of the dial. It is one of the earliest tools used to measure time and although it has been replaced by advances in technology, it continues to be a symbol of the fleeting nature of time and is often engraved with a sundial motto making reference to that.

The length of a necklace affects how it looks when you wear it. Always pay attention to necklace length when you’re purchasing jewelry, and be aware of how different necklace lengths look on you.
Most pendants can not be switched to longer or shorter chains on your own and they would need to be sent in to us for the alteration. They are designed so that the pendant does not fall off of the chain and the bail (part that connects the pendant to the chain) is too small to fit over the clasp and end ring.
We suggest that you measure a necklace that you already have and that is the length that you are looking for. Measurements should be taken from end to end including the clasp.
To get the most accurate measurement possible we urge you to get professionally sized at a local jewelry store and it that is not possible, pick up one of our Plastic Ring Sizers available in the shop. This sizer gives a pretty accurate measurement and is essentially free since it comes with a 4$ coupon code for a future ring purchase with us.
We also realize that time is of the essence sometimes and/or maybe you have plenty of rings lying around that fit perfect but just can't remember the size. Therefore we have outlined two possible ways for you to measure your ring size using this handy dandy printable PDF.
Please be sure to follow the instructions and double check measurements with a ruler. Printers can be tricky with sizing.
Place your ring over the closest matching sized circle, make sure the inside of the ring fits around the outside of the circle. If you are between sizes, order up.
1 - Get a non-stretchy string or paper about 6" long and 1/4" wide.
2 - Wrap around the base of your finger. It has to fit snug, but not too tight.
3 - Mark the point on the string/paper where it overlaps forming a circle.
4 - Compare the length of the string/paper to the chart. That is your ring size.
*If you are between sizes, order a larger size.
Make sure your finger is at a normal body temperature -- fingers can shrink or expand when cold or hot. If your knuckle is much larger than your finger’s base, take two separate measurements and choose a size in between. You want a ring to fit over your knuckle, but not be too loose or it will shift around.
