Bracelet Guide

The bracelet size chart provides a basic guide to finding the right size for bracelets, bangles and cuffs. Typically, bracelets are jewelry where size is less of an issue, but still, the bracelet must fit so you don’t lose it. The standard bracelet diameter for women is 7 inches, while the standard for men is 8 inches. Some bracelet types feature clasps that let the wearer change the size.

How to measure your wrist

1) Use a tape measure; if you do not have one, use a strip of paper, ribbon or cord. Wrap it around your wrist where you would normally wear the bracelet.

2) If you are using a strip of paper, ribbon or cord. Mark the end of the strip and then measure the length against a ruler. This is your wrist size.

3) Refer to the chart below for your wrist size and the recommended bracelet size based on a comfort fit. You should be able to fit two fingers comfortably between the bracelet and your wrist. Depending on your personal preference whether you like a snug fit, comfort fit or a loose fit, you may need to move up or down a size accordingly to suit your preference.

Bracelets sizing and fit

Size Charts Tip: Do you want a snug or loose fit? A delicate bracelet with a thin chain, we suggest doing a snug fit. Most other bracelets should have a comfortable fit except when buying large or thick cuffs or bangles. It’s best to buy large bracelets with a loose fit so you don’t feel like you are suffocating your wrist.

Fitting StyleAdd inch(es) to wrist size
Snug FitAdd 1/4″ to 1/2″
Comfort FitAdd 3/4″ to 1″
Loose FitAdd 1 1/4″
