Everyone likes to wear their bracelets slightly differently, but here are some guidelines.

Adult Sizing

In general, a bracelet is about 7.5" long (including the catch). When making a custom bracelet, try determining the length by using a flexible measuring tape around the area where you want the bracelet to sit (take a snug but not pulled measurement) and then add .5". Or use the chart:

Wrist Size Bricelet Size in inches
Petite 7 inches
Small 7.25 inches
Medium 7.5 inches
Large 7.75 inches
X-Large 8 inches

Children Sizing

In general, meaure the wrist and add .5" for ages 3 and under, and .75" for ages 3 and over. Or use the chart below.
