Finding the perfect bracelet size is essential for ensuring comfort and style. Whether shopping for yourself or looking to gift someone a beautiful bracelet, knowing how to measure the right size is essential.
Read on for a few simple steps to help you find the perfect bracelet fit.
Measuring Your Wrist
You need to measure your wrist accurately by following a few simple steps and having the necessary tools, which can be found at home.
Gather the necessary tools: a flexible measuring tape or a piece of string, a ruler, and a pen.
- Wrap the measuring tape or string snugly around your wrist just below the wrist bone.
- Make a mark or hold the point where the string or tape overlaps.
- Lay the string or tape flat and measure the length using a ruler.
- Note down the measurement in inches or centimeters.
Determining the Ideal Bracelet Size
Bracelet sizes typically range from extra small (XS) to extra large (XL). Read on to find out what is your bracelet size.
- Extra Small (XS): Up to 6 inches (15.24 cm) wrist circumference.
- Small (S): 6 - 6.5 inches (15.24 - 16.51 cm) wrist circumference.
- Medium (M): 6.5 - 7 inches (16.51 - 17.78 cm) wrist circumference.
- Large (L): 7 - 7.5 inches (17.78 - 19.05 cm) wrist circumference.
- Extra Large (XL): Over 7.5 inches (19.05 cm) wrist circumference.
Taking Bracelet Style into Consideration
Apart from wrist size, bracelet style also affects the fit. Add about half an inch (1.27 cm) to your wrist measurement for snug-fitting bracelets like bangles to ensure a comfortable fit. For looser bracelets like charm bracelets or link bracelets, add an inch (2.54 cm) or more, depending on your preference.
Now that you know the secrets to measuring the right bracelet size, you can confidently shop for yourself or surprise a loved one with beautiful jewellery that fits like a dream.
