    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.
