Bracelet Sizing & Measuring

How to measure my wrist?

Before getting a bracelet it’s important to know what size it should be. It's good to know what the average size is, but you can measure your own wrist easily.

You should also consider whether or not you want a comfortable or loose fit.

Women sizes: 16 to 20 cm

  • Most common: 17 cm
  • Average range: 17 – 18 cm

Men sizes: 18 to 22 cm

  • Most common: 18.5 cm
  • Average range: 18-19 cm

How to measure your wrist?

  1. Measure your wrist using a flexible measuring tape where you intend to wear the bracelet. If you don't have a measuring tape, you can use a rope and compare the measure with a ruler.
  2. Add almost 1 cm to that measurement to give it a comfortable fit, and space for the beads
  3. If you want a loose or snug fit, take/add around 1.2 cm from this figure
  4. If you have large beads, give it an extra half cm to accommodate them

My advise: Choose the recommended medium size depending the type of person: medium small or medium, medium large.
