Here is how I match up chain lengths for earrings. When I was first starting out, I would count out each loop, oh no, not anymore.
I'm going to use a headpin for this, but you can use anything that is straight and can fit through chain links.
First I cut the first length of chain that I want.
Time to cut my second piece.
Take your headpin and slide the uncut length of chain + the cut length.
Now just cut the other side to match. For the sake of the photo I have the piece lying down, but I usually hold it suspended to eyeball + cut.
Now it's time to make something (:
