Finding your Bracelet Size
The standard length for a women’s bracelet is 7 ½ - 8 inches. However, size, shape, three dimensional verses flat links - all affect the fit of a bracelet. It is possible to have bracelets in your jewellery box in various sizes.
Measuring your wrist for an accurate bracelet size
To find your perfect bracelet size, follow these steps:
- STEP 1: Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measurements or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet
- STEP 2: If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. This is your wrist size.
- STEP 3: To find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size with the appropriate measurements below
|Fit Style||Add inch(es) to wrist size|
|Snug Fit||Add ¼” to ½”|
|Comfort Fit||Add ¾” to 1”|
|Loose Fit||Add 1 ¼”|
So do you want a snug or loose fit? Well, that really will vary between each individual. If you are buying a delicate bracelet with a thin chain, we suggest doing a snug fit. Most other bracelets should have a comfort fit except when buying larger link or three dimensional bracelets. It's best to buy large stone bracelets with a loose fit so you don’t feel like you are suffocating your wrist.
