How to Measure Your Wrist for a Bracelet

  2011 Horsekeeping LLC   Copyright Information

 The best way to get a good fit is to measure a cuff bracelet you already have that fits you well and look for a bracelet with those dimensions. The total inside circumference is the inside circumference of the bracelet from end to end plus the gap (the distance between the ends).

If you don't have a cuff bracelet to use for comparison, then measure your wrist where you want to wear the bracelet. There are several ways to do this.

1. Use flexible tape measure to measure around your wrist where you will wear the bracelet

2. Wrap a piece of string or ribbon once around your wrist where you will wear the bracelet. Make a mark across the string wrap. Remove the string and measure between the marks to find the circumference of your wrist.

3. Cut a strip of paper approximately 8" long and as wide as the bracelet you would like to wear. Wrap the paper around your wrist where you would wear the bracelet. You might secure the paper with a piece of tape to get a better feel of the fit. Make a mark where the end of the paper lays on the wrap. Remove the paper and measure from the end to the mark for the circumference of your wrist.

All of our bracelet pages have the following measurments:

1. Total inside circumference which includes the gap. This corresponds more or less to your wrist measurement. (The best gauge is to measure a cuff bracelet that fits you well and compare to the bracelet you are considering.)

2. The gap, which is the distance between the ends.

 

How well a bracelet will fit you will depend on whether you like to wear the bracelet tight or loose, alone or with other bracelets, in front of or behind the prominent bone on your wrist, changes in temperature (weather) and other factors.

Bracelet measurements

The Total Inside Circumference (total measurement around the inside) is also the approximate wrist size. This measurement includes the gap. The gap is the distance between the ends.

Note from Paula:

I can't stress enough that the best way to get a perfectly fitting cuff bracelet is to measure one that fits you well and compare its measurements to the measurements on the page of a bracelet you are considering buying. When I wrap a string or dressmakers cloth tape measure around my wrist it measures between 6 7/8" and 7" and yet the bracelet I am wearing today measures 6 5/8 total inside circumference, which includes the gap. So the bracelet that fits me the best is actually 1/4" smaller than my wrist measurement. Such a bracelet is steady, does not flop around, yet does not dig in anywhere. It is comfortable and perfection in fit. So bear that in mind as you shop. You may likely prefer a bracelet slightly smaller than your wrist size.

Many cuff bracelets are adjustable. They can be opened or closed up to about a 1/4 inch larger or smaller. The types that are NOT easily adjustable are those that are made from very thick, heavy metal or those with inlaid stones across the entire front and sides.

When you purchase a bracelet, realize that if you adjust it, it is not returnable. To adjust your bracelet, be very careful how you adjust it so you don't make it an odd shape or damage it. If you try to bend an area of your bracelet where there is a stone or inlay, you might pop the stones out. Generally when opening or closing a bracelet for fit, encircle one hand firmly over the last stone on one side of the bracelet and then make your adjustment by bending in or out the portion of the bracelet from the last stone to the end of the bracelet. Do the same on the other side.

Remember, some bracelets are not adjustable at all. Those that have stones or inlay all the way to the ends of the bracelet are not considered adjustable. Those that are made of very heavy silver would be very difficult to bend, so are considered not adjustable.

Bracelet Weight

We list the weight of bracelets for several reasons. First, the price of silver fluctuates but has been running high the last several years. The weight of a sterling silver bracelet factors into its price. Also, we list the weight because sometimes you are shopping for a substantial piece, like a heavy cuff, and sometimes you are looking for a very lightweight piece. You can compare the weights among bracelets to find exactly what you want.

Traditionally precious metals and jewelry weights are listed in grams or Troy ounces. There are approximately 31.1 grams in one Troy ounce.
As always, if you have questions about a bracelet, write us at .

IMPORTANT NOTE: Bracelets that have been adjusted are not returnable. Jewelry return guidelines along with detailed shipping and return information can be found on our Policy Page.
