Bracelet Size Guide
Wondering about what size bracelet would suit you the best and how to style your bracelets? Allow us to guide you to your perfect size. In this guide, we hope to tell you all you need to know about bracelet sizes, types, and how to measure your wrist for the right fit.
How to measure your wrist for desired bracelet size
Our bracelet size charts show the total bracelet circumference lengths measured in either centimeters or inches (1" = 2.5 cm). The first thing to consider is the fit or the tightness of the bracelet. Give some thought to the snugness or looseness you desire (fit of your bracelet). There are two easy ways to measure your wrist size to find your correct bracelet size (total circumference).
Measuring your wrist:
Step 1: Rest your arm on a table and bring a string/flexible tape around your wrist and join both ends as snug or loose as you prefer.
Step 2: Check the length (use a ruler to measure the string).
If you already have a bracelet - this is how to check the length
Step 1: Place your open bracelet on a table
Step 2: Using the centimeter/inch edge of a ruler, measure from the outer edge of the clasp to the other end of the bracelet.
Find your right bracelet fit
We divide our bracelet fits into slug/tight, comfortable and loose. If you like the snug fit, you like it quite tight. If you want a comfortable fit with finger room all around, then you should go for the next bigger size range on the bracelet size chart. The general rule of thumb to get your best fit is to add the following to your measured wrist size:
Your wrist measurement + cm/inches
|FIT||CENTIMETRES (CM)||INCHES (“)|
|Snug/Tight||Your wrist measurement + 0.5-1cm||Your wrist measurement + 0.25-0.5"|
|Comfort||Your wrist measurement + 2-2.5cm||Your wrist measurement + 0.75-1"|
|Loose||Your wrist measurement + 3cm||Your wrist measurement + 1.25"|
The perfect bracelet size for different styles and looks
Remember the rule for styling accessories is that there are no rules! The first thing is to have fun and wear who you are. You have our permission to enjoy your daily bracelet with as many wrist companions as you fancy! Based on the vast collection of designer bracelets we carry here at Gemsrush, we have put together 3 bracelet styles and bracelet sizing tips for each.
The classic chain bracelets: This bracelet type is usually in gold, sterling silver, or rhodium or gold plated chains that have a lobster or a T-bar/toggle clasp and are therefore adjustable by a few centimeters. If your wrist size falls in the small range, go for the closest match in the lower range. On the other hand, medium to large wrists should wear the upper limit size.
Gemstone and charm bracelets: are also step-up versions of plain chain bracelets and are therefore adjustable. Some of our adjustable cord bracelets also come with lovely charms and precious gemstones. Choose the upper size range closest to your wrist snug-fit size.
