To best determine what size of a custom handmade bracelet to order, first measure your wrist using a string or flexible measuring tape. Just below your wrist bone towards your hand is where to measure for your actual wrist size. Next, it is usually a good idea to add approximately 1 inch to your wrist measurement to best determine what size you should order. For children and infants adding approximately 1/2 inch should be sufficient our website.
The average bracelet size is approximately 7 1/4 inches long. However, wrist sizes vary greatly, for many, 8 inches is standard. This is why, on handmade custom bracelets, measuring is so important. Because it is a one of a kind piece of art made uniquely for you.
If you are looking to purchase a children’s bracelet one should look for a designer who offers bracelets with an extension option. The extension generally adds 1 inch to the length of the bracelet. This allows the child to get many years of wear from their special treasure.
A custom bracelet is a unique piece of jewelry in that it is handmade for you. Take the time to measure and if your measurement is not offered by the company who is creating your bracelet, e-mail the owner. I am sure in most cases the adjustment can be made.
