The following instructions provide an easy way to determine bracelet size and bangle size.

How to Measure for Bracelet Size

  1. Measure around the wrist at the wrist bone. Choose a place where you would normally wear a bracelet. To take the measurement, use a bracelet gauge, a ribbon measuring tape or even a strip of paper and a ruler.

  2. To use the strip of paper, mark where the end of the bracelet needs to be and then measure the paper with a ruler. No matter the method, the measurement is the wrist size. Increase the wrist measurement in the following increments to determine the bracelet size for how you want the bracelet to fit.

    • Add 1/4 to 1/2 inch for a snug fit.

    • Add 3/4 to 1 inch for a comfortable fit.

    • Add about 1-1/4 inch for a loose fit.


How to Measure for Bangle Size

  1. Hold your hand as if you were putting on a bangle. Bring all of your fingers together with your thumb and little finger touching.

  2. Measure around the hand at the widest point with a tape measure or a strip of paper. Be sure to pull the paper or tape measure snug against your skin. Mark the paper with a pen and measure it with a ruler. This measurement is the circumference of your hand.

  3. Use the following chart to determine the diameter of your hand, based on the circumference. After determining the diameter, choose a bangle that’s at least 1/4 inch larger in diameter than the diameter measurement of your hand,


Convert Hand Circumference to Diameter

  • 7-1/2 inches equals approximately 2-3/8 inches in diameter – small

  • 8-1/4 inches equals approximately 2-5⁄8 inches in diameter – medium

  • 8-5⁄8 inches equals approximately 2-3⁄4 inches in diameter – large
