The importance of having the right size of the bracelet is right up there with the type of crystals that are making it up. I understand that having a bracelet that's too tight or too loose is the worst. It can be too dangly, feel uncomfortable (too tight or too loose!) I actually started making these crystal bracelets because I picked up an awesome bracelet at the market and it was too tight! After I restrung my favorite Amethyst bracelet and wore it around work I started to restring other people's bracelets for the same reason! Even now as I talk to customers they are complaining about a bracelet that's too loose and unwearable. This is why I will always ask what your wrist size is to make sure it is wearable and enjoyable.
To determine bracelet size, follow the steps below.
1. Measure your wrist below the wrist bone (where you would normally wear your bracelet) using a bracelet gauge, a flexible measuring tape, a string, or a strip of paper. Make sure the measuring utensil is snug, but not too tight.
2. If using a plain strip of paper or string, mark your strip with a pen where the end of the bracelet needs to be. Then measure the paper strip/string with a ruler. This is the WRIST SIZE.
3. To find the BRACELET SIZE, increase the wrist measurement by the increment below, based on how you want the bracelet to fit.
~ For a snug fit, add 1/2".
~ For a comfortable fit, add 3/4" to 1".
~ For a loose fit, add 1-1/4".
XS: 6 inches = 15.2 cm ( child / tiny) S: 6.5 Inches = 16.5 cm (small)
M: 7 Inches = 17.8 cm (avg women) L: 7.5 Inches = 19 cm (avg men)
XL: 8 Inches = 20.3 (avg L wrist men) XXL: 8.5 Inches = 21.6cm (XXL)
For larger sizes, when placing your order, add the bracelet size in the note section
I hope this guide helps understand your wrist size. I look forward to working with you to create an awesome crystal bracelet specific to you!
