Bracelet & Bangle Measurement Guidelines
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.
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 6.35mm - 12.7mm for a snug fit.
- Add 19.05mm - 25.4mm for a comfortable fit.
- Add about 32mm for a loose fit.
How to Measure for Bangle Size
Hold your hand as if you were putting on a bangle. Bring all of your fingers together with your thumb and little finger touching.
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.
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 6.35mm larger in diameter than the diameter measurement of your hand
