How do mini & medium chains compare in size?
Our mini necklace chains are delicate in nature and provide the sparkly, barely-there look that our customers know and love. In comparison, for someone who is a little tougher on their jewels, all other necklaces aside from the mini collection are on a medium chain that is a touch sturdier.
Can I layer two 16" necklaces?
The key to the layered look is to make it appear effortless. We find that layering two 16” necklaces can result in tangling. With layering in mind, Dana has specifically designed necklaces in both 16” and 18” chain length options - a combination that always gets it right. Check out The Styling Edit for inspiration and our favorite combinations!

Cleaning & Care
How do I take care of my jewelry?
Dana Rebecca Designs fine jewelry is delicate and should be cared for accordingly. To extend the life of your jewelry, please follow these care instructions.
Take off your jewelry before your daily rituals such as showering, lotion, perfume, etc. Leave your jewelry at home before engaging in strenuous activities such as working out. Do not wear your jewelry to the beach or the pool to avoid exposure to harsh chemicals. Exposure to makeup, oil, and dyes can diminish the sparkle of your jewelry. Before bedtime, lay your jewelry out flat.
For necklaces, please clasp the necklace when removing it to assure the chain does not tangle or knot.
What is the best way to clean my jewelry?
To keep your diamonds shining bright, mix one teaspoon of dish soap and one quart of warm water in a bowl. Remove any buildup by gently rubbing with a soft bristle toothbrush. For any jewelry with gemstones, please contact us at [email protected] or a professional jeweler to ensure safe and gentle cleaning procedures.
What is the best way to store jewelry while traveling?
Our jewelry is delicate and should be cared for accordingly. When traveling with your jewelry, we suggest placing necklaces in a small zip lock bag with the clasp hanging out of the bag to prevent tangling. Place all jewels in a soft pouch for extra protection.
How do I get a knot out of my chain?
Carefully use pointed tweezers to take apart any knots in your chain.
Can I shower/swim in my necklace?
To keep your jewelry looking its best, we suggest taking it off before your daily rituals such as showers, lotion, perfume, exercise, etc. Do not wear your jewelry to the beach or pool to avoid exposure to harsh chemicals. Remember, your jewels need their beauty sleep too so lay them out flat at night.
