Caliper Gauge

How do I measure the mm of a chain for adding beads?

I am making earrings and I want to add beads to the end of a chain. I bought the chain from Hobby Lobby the brand is Metal Gallery, but there is no information on the package or company website. How do you measure the diameter of a chain necklace, so I know what mm bead to buy. Thanks!!

You can measure the width of the chain with a caliper gauge. See

But, I'm not sure I understand why you need to do that. When you buy beads, the mm (e.g. 4mm, 6mm, 10mm, etc.) is the diameter of the bead. Usually, you would just buy the size of beads that gives you the look you want.
