The perfect fit for your bracelet

Making or buying the right size bracelet seems not always an easy task whether you choose for a bead, link or a bangle type bracelet. Some basic information will help you on your way.

Measuring up:

  • Use a flexible tape measure or a piece of string + pen and paper
  • Measure up your wrist just beneath the wrist bone
  • Write it down and add some “extra length” for good measure

How to determine the extra length?

The length is partly determined by the width of the bracelet and partly by your preference. The wider the bracelet the more extra length you need to be comfortable.

  • For a snug fit (like a wristwatch) : add 1 cm tot 1,50 cm
  • For a comfortable fit: add 1,75 tot 2,5 cm
  • For a loose fit: add 3 cm

Advice: do not choose a snug fit for a wide bracelet
