Bracelet Sizing Guide

Finding the perfect bracelet size is crucial for both comfort and style. Whether you’re choosing a piece for yourself or as a gift, understanding how to measure and select the right size is essential.

What You’ll Need for Measuring:

  • Flexible measuring tape or a strip of paper
  • A pen (if using a strip of paper)
  • A ruler (if using a strip of paper)

Measuring Your Wrist:

  1. Wrap the Measuring Tool: Place the measuring tape or paper strip around your wrist where the bracelet will sit. It should be snug but not overly tight.
  2. Mark and Measure: With a paper strip, mark where it overlaps, then lay it flat to measure up to the mark with a ruler. For a tape measure, simply read the measurement where it meets the zero mark.
  3. Record Your Measurement: This number is your actual wrist size.

Determining the Perfect Bracelet Size:

  • Snug Fit: Add 1/4 to 1/2 inch to your wrist size.
  • Comfort Fit: Add 3/4 to 1 inch for a bit more looseness.
  • Loose Fit: For a relaxed fit, add 1 1/4 inches.

Bracelet Size Chart (General Guidelines):

  • Child: 5 – 6 inches
  • Teen: 6 – 6.5 inches
  • Small Adult: 6.5 – 7 inches
  • Medium Adult: 7 – 7.5 inches
  • Large Adult: 7.5 – 8 inches
