Choose the right bracelet length

To avoid making mistakes when choosing your bracelet, here is a small guide that will help you determine your wrist size and make the right choice.

Take your own measurements

There are several objects and means to help you measure your wrist. Using a tape measure, a string or a ribbon, go around your wrist without tightening too much. Ideally, you should be able to slip a finger under the tape.

how to take you measurements

Note the length obtained by measuring your wrist and add 1cm or 2cm to it. For example, if you have a wrist size of 18cm, the ideal size to choose for your bracelet is 19cm. 

This also depends on how you want to wear your bracelet. The average bracelet size for a woman is around 19cm and 21cm for men.

  • For an « exactly size » wear: use your measurement.
  • For a « near the skin » wear: add 1 or 1,5cm to your measurement.
  • For an « ample » wear: add 1,5cm or 2cm to your measurement.

Measuring your wrist size with a bracelet

It is also possible to use one of your bracelets to measure your wrist. To do this, take your bracelet and a ruler and measure it from one end to the other, including the clasp and the fastener.
