ALWAYS MEASURE YOUR BRACELET SIZE. Bracelets are available in different sizes, so it is important to know your bracelet size before ordering online. You need this information to make the right choice, even if you already have a favorite bracelet that you'd like to replace. So, how do you measure bracelet size?


How to Find an Accurate Bracelet Size


To determine bracelet size, follow the steps below.

1. To measure your bracelet size, measure an even 2-3" below your wrist bone using a flexible measuring tape.

2. If you're using a strip of paper, ribbon or rope, make sure it's long enough. Mark the end of the strip and then use a ruler to measure the length. This is your wrist size.

3. To find the perfect bracelet size, take your wrist measurement and add or subtract as indicated to allow for a snug fit or to make room for a relaxed, loose fit.


For a snug fit, add 1/4" to 1/2".

For a comfort fit, add 3/4" to 1".

For a loose fit, add 1-1/4".


How to Determine Bangle Bracelet Size


1.To find your bangle bracelet size, bring your thumb and little finger together.

2. Using a strip of paper or measuring tape, measure around your closed hand at the widest point, pulling the tape snug against the skin. If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark the paper with a pen then measure the strip with a ruler. This is the circumference of your hand.

3. To ensure a perfect fit, first measure your hand circumference. Then choose or create a bracelet with diameter at least 1/4" larger than that measurement.


Converting Circumference to Diameter

7-1/2" is approx. 2-3/8" dia. (small)

8-1/4" is approx. 2-5/8" dia. (medium)

8-5/8" is approx. 2-3/4" dia. (large)


Final Thoughts

Finally, determining bracelet size might be achieved in a variety of ways. The most popular approaches for measuring bracelet size are by using a bracelet ruler or a piece of string. The choice is yours, since each method will yield an accurate measurement of your bracelet's size.
