Different types of bracelets

How to determine the size of your bracelet?

Bracelet fit is important for comfort and style. To find out your exact bracelet size, use a measuring tape or piece of string to measure the size of your wrist. You should measure just above the wrist bone, and then add 0.8-1 inches (~2cm) to your wrist size to get the correct bracelet size.

To find out your bangle bracelet size, close your fingers together like when you are putting on a bangle, again use o strip or paper to measure around the closed hand at the widest point which  is the circumference of your hand.

The standard bracelet length is 6.5 to 7.5 inches, 7 inches is the most common. Large bracelets are between 7.5 to 9 inches. Bangles usually are 7 inches in length with a 2.5-inch diameter.
