How to Measure You Wrist Accurately?

Use a flexible tape wrap around your wrist at the wrist bone for accuracy. Or use a piece of string or a paper strip to encircle your wrist, and then measure the length against a ruler.

Ensure that the measuring tape or string fits comfortably around your wrist, allowing you to slide a finger between it and your wrist without it being too tight.

Consider Your Preference and Bracelet Style:

If you prefer a slightly looser feel for your bracelet, add about 1-1/4 inch to your wrist measurement. If you want a snug fit, just add 1/4 to 1/2 inch to the measurement. For comfortability, particularly with charm or bead bracelets, consider add 3/4 to 1 inch to your wrist measurement.

Consider the Type of Bracelets:

  • For chain bracelets: to ensure a comfortable fit, it’s recommended to add approximately 0.5 to 1 inch (1.3 to 2.5 cm) to your wrist measurement.

  • For Bangle bracelets: As bangle bracelets are usually rigid and unadjustable, you need to measure the widest part of your hand (the knuckles) to find your bangle size.

  • For cuff bracelets: Some cuffs are designed to fit snugly ( pick a size close to your wrist measurement), while others may have an open or adjustable design (check its inner circumference, subtract 1/2″ from your wrist measurement for the opening gap. For example, if your wrist measures 7″ in circumference then you would choose 6.5″size.). A well-fitted cuff should stay comfortably in place and not slip up and down your arm.

The total inside circumference of a bracelet is determined by adding the inner circumference from end to end and the gap measurement. For example, if your wrist measures 6.5 inches, a bracelet with a 5.25 inch inside circumference from end to end and a 1.25 inch gap will have a total inside circumference of 6.5 inches, ensuring a good fit for you.

What if My Wrist Measurement is Not An Even Number?

It’s simple—just round up to the nearest whole or half inch. For instance, if your wrist measures 7.25 inches, round up to 7.5 inches, then add half an inch to get a bracelet size of 8.0 inches.
