In order to get your shiny new piece of jewellery perfect, I need to make it to the correct size. But sizing needn't be as hard as you think! Use the guides below to help figure out what size you require, and as always, drop me a message if you have any concerns. I'm happy to help!
Bangles are made to order in five standard sizes:
XS- 5.7cm diameter = 18cm circumference
S- 6cm diameter = 19cm circumference
M- 6.4cm diameter = 20cm circumference
L- 6.7cm diameter = 21cm circumference
XL- 7cm diameter = 22cm circumference
One of these sizes usually accomodates my customer's needs, but of course if you need a different size I am happy to make a custom size at no extra cost. Just drop me a message, or leave a note in the comments box at checkout of the exact size you need.
How to find your Bangle Size:
Option 1: If you have a bangle which fits: Simply measure the internal diameter of the bangle and pick the closest match (always go for a bigger size rather than a smaller size if you're between sizes!). To do this, take a ruler and place the bangle on top of it so that the '0' mark sits exactly on the inside edge of the bangle. Then, carefully measure the internal diameter of the bangle.
Option 2: If you do not have a bangle that fits: With one hand, bring your thumb and little finger together as if you were putting on a bangle. Measure around the hand at the widest point with a tape measure or a strip of paper. Make sure you 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.
Use the Chart above to find the nearest internal circumference. Again, always choose the bigger closest size, than the small one.
For example, If I had a hand circumference of 20.5cm, that would be closest to a size Large above.
For Chain Bracelets:
Chain Bracelets are made to order in 4 standard sizes:
S- 15cm Length
M- 17cm Length
L- 18cm Length
XL- 19cm Length
Once again, if you require another custom size made,, I can do so free of charge. Just drop me a message or add the size you need into the comments box at checkout.
To find your bracelet size: Simply wrap a flexible tape measure or piece of thread around your wrist where you would wear your bracelet, and take a measurement of your wrist circumference.
You will need to add 1-2cm to this measurement to find your correct bracelet size (this allows space for the bracelet to not be tight to your wrist), and choose the bigger size if you fall between 2 sizes.
For example, if my wrist measures 14.5cm, I would add 2cm to allow the bracelet some wiggle room, and so I would need a size Medium.
TOP TIP: If this is your first time buying a bracelet online, you may like to tape a strip of paper into a circle around your wrist at the same length as the bracelet, and see how it fits your wrist.
FOR CUFF BRACELETS: All you need is your wrist circumference, with no added length! Simple!
Here in the UK we use ring sizes determined by the letters of the Alphabet. The most common sizes for women are usually J-S.
Whilst it's always better and more accurate to visit a jeweller to have your ring size measured professionally, this isn't always practical. So how do you find out your ring size at home?
