Make sure that your new bracelet fits you perfectly by measuring your wrist or a favorite bracelet before ordering. The average women's bracelet size is 7 inches, 8 inches for men, though we all know that wrists come in as many shapes and sizes as we do. Therefore, it is very important to double-check your wrist and bracelet size before ordering. Remember, your typical clothing size may not correspond to your wrist or bracelet size.
X-Small: 5.5 inches
Small: 6 inches
Medium: 7 inches
Large: 8 inches
X-Large: 9 inches
Please note that the sizes above are actual wrist sizes ( 1 to 1.5 inches will be added as required to your wrist measurement—see below). If a bracelet is either adjustable or has an extender chain, it will be noted in its product description. For beaded stretch bracelets a further option will be presented as the comfort level. This option will allow the individual to indicate preference on the how they want the bracelet to fit. The options will generally be snug, comfort, loose.
How to measure your bracelet size: Wrap a soft measuring tape or ribbon snugly (but not too tightly) around your wrist, just below your wrist bone. Mark the length, (cutting and/or measuring the ribbon with a ruler). This is your wrist size. (1 to 1.5 inches will be added to that measurement.)
Another measurement technique: simply measure a bracelet that fits you comfortably and is similar in style to the one you want to order. Remember, a chunky bracelet will fit you differently than a delicate one, and will need to be a bit longer to accommodate the width of the materials. Don't forget to measure the bracelet end-to-end, including the clasp.
Bracelet Ordering Tips
Still not sure about your size? When placing your bracelet order, keep in mind that it is better for a bracelet to be slightly loose rather than snug, and don't forget to consider what kind of bracelet fit is most comfortable for you (either tighter or looser). If your wrist is between sizes, we suggest that you round up to the next largest size. If you do not see your preferred bracelet size on a product's listing, just contact us about special ordering a custom size (see petite or plus sizing).
Please make sure to measure your wrist accurately before ordering, as there is $20.00 resizing fee for bracelets. If your bracelet needs resizing, it must be either partially or completely restrung or rewired. This takes the same amount of time and labor as making it the first time, and often requires using some additional materials.
