How to measure the right circumference
Let’s see how to easily measure your wrist circumference in 3 steps. At each step, we give some tips to get to the right length.
Do you have a bracelet that fits well and where you can easily measure the length? Then you can quickly and easily determine your size by placing it along a ruler.
1. Use a tape measure or string and ruler
The best place to measure your wrist for a bracelet is just before the lump of your wrist. So between your fingers and the lump. Wrap the tape measure or string around this place on the wrist. Don’t do this too tight.
Do you use a string? Mark the point where the circle is round.
2. Note the size of your wrist
Now place the string next to a ruler to measure the wrist circumference.
3. Define your bracelet size
Your wrist size is not your bracelet size. It depends on how tight/loose you want the bracelet to be. Find the right length by adding 2 cm to the wrist circumference. However, for a tight bracelet you add 1 cm and for a loose bracelet you add 3 cm.
Enjoy your favorite bracelet! You can also learn more about other jewelry sizes.
