Bespoke Bracelet Sizing

Ensuring the accuracy of your wrist size is essential before ordering a custom bracelet to prevent any mistakes. You can have your measurements taken by a professional in-store or do it yourself at home using a standard measuring tape.

Additionally, for bracelet designs without clasps, such as bangles, it’s crucial that they fit the widest part of your hand, so measurements should be taken accordingly.

Keep in mind that custom bracelets are typically more expensive than standard designs due to the additional labor and materials, such as extra metals and gemstones, required for their production.

Determining your bracelet size: A step-by-step guide

Below are the steps to help you measure your wrist size and determine your corresponding bracelet size:

  1. Use a flexible measuring tape, or alternatively, a piece of paper, ribbon, or cord. Wrap it snugly around the area where you plan to wear the bracelet, typically around the wrist bone.
  2. If using paper, ribbon, or cord, mark the point where the two ends meet with a pen or pencil.
  3. Measure the length with a ruler. This measurement represents your wrist size, not your bracelet size. Add approximately ¼ to 1 inch to this measurement to estimate your bracelet size.
  4. Consult the bracelet size conversion chart below to find your bracelet size.

What is the method for finding your bangle size?

Your bangle size is determined by the size of your hand, not your wrist. Follow these steps to accurately measure your bangle size:

  1. Close your fingers and bring your thumb and little finger together as if you were wearing a bangle.
  2. Take a measuring tape, a piece of paper, or thread, and wrap it around the widest part of your hand.
  3. Mark where the two points meet with a pen or pencil.
  4. Use a ruler to measure the length between the marks; this represents your hand’s circumference.
  5. Consult the bangle sizing chart below and match your hand circumference to the corresponding bangle size.

Bracelet fit preferences

Understanding your preferred bracelet wearing style is key to accurately measuring your wrist, as it varies from person to person.

For instance, if you prefer a snug or tight fit, you’ll add less than ¼ of an inch to your wrist measurement for optimal comfort. The more you add, the looser the bracelet will feel. To avoid discomfort or a feeling of constriction, opting for a looser fit is recommended.

Refer to the guide below for measurements tailored to various bracelet fitting preferences.
