How to measure your bracelet size
Using a piece of string (or fabric measuring tape), measure your wrist just above the wrist bone (towards your elbow, not your hand). This is the circumference of your wrist. Depending on the type of fit you would like, add the following to your measured wrist circumference to get a final bracelet size:
Pick the bracelet size closest to this final calculation for the type of fit you desire.
For example, if I measured my wrist as 5.75" and would like a snug fit, I would pick a size 6" as my bracelet size. If I wanted my bracelet to move a bit (comfort fit), I'd pick a size 6.5". If I wanted a loose fit that would hang down a bit on the top of my hand, I'd pick size 7".
Do you want a snug or loose fit?
That will depend on your personal style and the type of bracelet.
If you are buying a gift and don't know the recipient's wrist size, here are the general guidelines for bracelet sizing.
|Average||7.5" - 8"|
|2-5 years old||5.5"|
|6-8 years old||6"|
|9-13 years old||6.5"|
|13+ years old||Women's sizing|
