Tips For Determining Proper Bracelet Sizing

Many of my customers email me asking questions about determining proper bracelet sizing. I have listed below the steps necessary to measure a wrist to obtain the proper sizing for custom order bracelets.The lobster clasp adds 1 inch to all bracelets. This amount is figured into Step 3 below.

To determine bracelet size and watch size:
1.Measure wrist with a flexible tape, just above the wrist bone where you would place a wrist watch. If you do not have a flexible measuring tape, use a ribbon or some string and measure the resulting length after you remove the ribbon or string from your wrist.
2.Pull snug, but not too tight. Note the measurement.
3.Now add 1". This is your approximate size.
4.Select the nearest size: 6.0", 6.5", 7.0", 7.5", 8.0". If your measurement is in between these sizes, select the next larger size. For example, if your wrist plus 1 inch measures 7.25", choose the size 7.5". A little extra wiggle room is typically more comfortable than too little wiggle room. All of my custom order bracelets measure: 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, and 8.0.
All lengths are in inches. Young Ladies' bracelets measure: 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5. Average size is approximately 7.0-7.5" for adults. All bracelets come standard with a sterling silver lobster clasp.

A large part of our business is custom order.If you are interested in your very own custom designed sterling silver bracelet or would like to give one as a gift for holiday,mother's day, graduation, birthday, or just because please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or visit my website at
