Buying bracelets is much easier if you know your correct wrist size. When you order a bracelet you want to fit it properly!
Most women feel comfortable wearing a bracelet that is 7 to 7½ inches in size, which is the standard size. The bracelet will hang between your hand and wrist bone, which is the most attractive position.
How to measure your wrist size
These simple instructions tell you how to measure your wrist properly so you can be sure your bracelets will fit right.
When measuring for bracelets, measure tightly where your wrist is broadest.
Measure your wrist with a flexible, soft tape measure just below the wrist bone (below the wrist bone is the area between your hand and the wrist bone). This is your actual wrist size, not your bracelet size.
Add approx. ¼ inches up to 1 inch (½ inch is average) to your actual wrist size, this is your approximate bracelet size. The more you add to your wrist size the more your bracelet will hang lower to your hand.
Using a flexible measuring tape*, Measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add approx ¼ inch to 1 inch (½ inch is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear.
*Tip: If you don't have a tape measure handy, use a strip of paper or thin string, and mark it where it overlaps on your wrist. Then lay the strip flat to measure up to the mark using any ruler.
