Tasbih Sizing Guide
The traditional and most popular size beads for a 99 tasbih necklace are either 6mm or 8mm. Our 6mm tasbih necklace measures approximately 15 inches/38cm long and our 8mm tasbih necklace measures approximately 19 inches/48cm long. The measurement is taken from the top of the tasbih to the bottom of the pendant.
Which necklace size should I choose?
Our models range in body type and height to help show you what our necklaces will look on different types of people. It really comes down to personal preference and the length or size of bead that you normally like to wear. Other than personal preference, a few things to consider are:
- If you use your tasbih to pray, count the beads, you may prefer the 8mm bead size as they have a more tactile feel in your hands.
- If you prefer to feel more weight when wearing your tasbih, then you may again choose the 8mm size beads.
- If you have neck or back problems, the 6mm size tasbih will be more preferable as they feel lightweight even when its made of gemstone.
What did our GR models prefer?
We asked our models what their preferences were for the type and size of necklaces. Our 5'2" model preferred the smaller 6mm tasbih necklace and our 5'9" model had a strong preference for the 8mm tasbih necklace. The models that ranged in between these heights did not have as strong preference for either 6mm or 8mm and both sizes looked great on them!
