Wearing the correct sized bracelet, or how to measure your wrists
Bracelets are worn by men and women for many reasons, but mostly as jewelry for their wrists. Previously, I described the different attributes of a few gemstones. You might have decided to purchase a semiprecious gemstone bracelet, but you don’t know what size to purchase. If you don’t know your wrist size, here a a few tips to measure and determine your wrist size.
Using a paper tape measure (or a piece of string), measure tightly where your wrist is the broadest, just below the wrist bone (between your hand and wrist bone). If using a piece of string, afterwards measure the string using a ruler. This is your wrist size.
Add 1/2″ to 1″ to your wrist size (to allow for medium to large semiprecious gemstones and clasps to close the bracelet). This is your bracelet size.
For elastic bracelets, measure tightly where your hand is the broadest (hold hand straight, at the point where your knuckles and the top joint of the thumb intersect). This is your bracelet size for elastic bracelets.
I’ve just explained how to determine your own personal size bracelet. The accepted standard sizes (jewelers standards) for bracelets (male and female) are: extra small – size 6 1/2″ small – size 7″ medium-size 8″ large – size 9″ extra large – 9 1/2″
At https://www.squareup.com/store/circlesofgemstones all the handcrafted semiprecious gemstone jewelry bracelets are “true sized.” This means that the varied sizes and weight of the semiprecious gemstones have been taken into consideration when sizing the bracelets. So, if the gemstone bracelet you’re thinking of purchasing says size 8″, it is truly “size 8”.
