Sizing

Whether you're buying for yourself or as a gift for somebody else - getting the right size is important. I understand how tricky it can be to 'guess' at sizes for online purchases - so I've put together some handy information to help you. To determine your size for bangles, bracelets and necklaces refer to the graphics below.

Bracelets, Bangles & Cuffs

For bracelets please choose your actual wrist size - measuring against a bracelet that you already have is the best way to find this, alternatively you can do the following:

  1. Measure around the wrist at the wrist bone. Choose a place where you would normally wear a bracelet. To take the measurement, use a bracelet gauge, a ribbon measuring tape or even a strip of paper and a ruler.
  2. To use the strip of paper, mark where the end of the bracelet needs to be and then measure the paper with a ruler. No matter the method, the measurement is the wrist size.Increase the wrist measurement in the following increments to determine the bracelet size for how you want the bracelet to fit.
    • Add 1/4 to 1/2 inch for a snug fit.
    • Add 3/4 to 1 inch for a comfortable fit.
    • Add about 1-1/4 inch for a loose fit.

For bangles use the following:

  1. Hold your hand as if you were putting on a bangle (bring all of your fingers together with your thumb and little finger touching).
  2. Measure across your knuckles at the widest point with a tape measure or a strip of paper. Be sure to pull the paper or tape measure snug against your skin. Mark the paper with a pen and measure it with a ruler. This measurement is the circumference of your hand.
  3. Use the following chart to determine the diameter of your hand, based on the circumference. After determining the diameter, choose a bangle that’s at least 1/4 inch larger in diameter than the diameter measurement of your hand:
7-1/2 inches equals approximately 2-3/8 inches in diameter – small
8-1/4 inches equals approximately 2-5⁄8 inches in diameter – medium
8-5⁄8 inches equals approximately 2-3⁄4 inches in diameter – large
For Cuffs:
    1. Measure around the wrist choosing the place where you want your cuff to sit. To take the measurement use a ribbon measuring tape or even a strip of paper and a ruler.
    2. Let me know the measurement and I will reduce the size accordingly to ensure that your cuff fits. 

Necklaces

I send the majority of my pendants with an 18" chain (unless otherwise specified in the item listing).
