Bracelet Sizing Guide - How To Find A Perfect Bracelet Size Every time

Finding a bracelet online that fits your wrist perfectly is a tough job, but not anymore. check out this bracelet sizing guide to order perfect fitting bracelets every time. 

How many times have you quickly tighten a bracelet with safety pins, messily looped through holes? Perhaps, the only way to tighten a bracelet but it ruins the look. The desire to wear jewelry that fits perfectly is every man and woman’s dream. 

Wrist sizing is not a common practice. We often walk-in shops or select a random size that we think would work close to being perfect. We tend to get lazy and don't bother with the hassle of measuring. Although, if measured correctly once, the size could ensure the wristlet gives you the classy look it is supposed to. 


Bracelets for men and women  come in various sizes that we often purchase by just guessing the size. However, wearing your exact size can be the key to ensuring it’s not too tight or not to lose. Imagine your favorite Swarovski bracelet sliding off your wrist unknowingly in a public place; not a good feeling once you reach home to realize you have lost a piece close to your heart. 

When it comes to buying a bracelet that is not size adjustable, it would be wise to measure your wrist size so you can purchase something comfortable. A bracelet will only dangle on your wrist with elegance if it fits perfectly in the right spot. 

Snug or loose is a choice that is different for each individual. Therefore, keeping in mind your preferences and your size, chose a bracelet that sits perfectly. Keep in mind, too tight, and your wrist might be gasping for some air. Too loose and you might find your bracelet landing in the lost and found. This bracelet sizing guide would help you in choosing a perfect bracelet every time.

More importantly, when picking bracelets as a gift, keep in mind the gender and the physique of the receiver. Even if you know the exact size, men's and women's sizes are different so keep an eye out for the reference chart when purchasing a bangle or a bracelet for men and women. The sizing worries do disappear when brands offer you options that are size adjustable. It’s a relief indeed!

Now, measuring your wrist size only takes a minute. There are 2 ways to measure your bracelet and bangle size.

Here’s what you need:

  • A strip of paper
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Pen

Method 1 For Bracelets – Measuring the wrist:

  1. Wrap the strip of paper just below your wrist or where you usually wear your bracelets. 
  2. Mark with a pen the point where two ends join. 
  3. Measure up until that point on a ruler.
  4. Use the chart below to determine your size.

Final Thoughts: 

While sizing may seem a long, tedious task, it can be very beneficial in the long run. Honestly, it's a one time task. Although different brands have different sizing charts, it's preferable to pick the size that is a size up but closest to your wrist size. 

A slightly loose bracelet is better than one that is suffocating your wrist.
