If you know your ring size that’s great. Keep in mind that when selecting a wide band ring it may feel slightly different from a narrow band ring if that is what you are used to. If you are not sure you can go to a local jewelry store and have them size your finger using a wide band ring gauge.
For cuff bracelets these are typical sizes:
- Small = 5 3/4”
- Medium = 6 to 6 ¾”
- Large = 7 to 7 ½”
To measure your wrist for a cuff bracelet take a flexible tape measure and measure approx. 1” below the wrist bone (towards your elbow at the narrowest point). Add ½” to this measurement if you like a close fitting cuff. Add ¾” to 1” if you prefer a looser fitting cuff. If you don’t have a flexible tape measure you can take a piece of string or a narrow strip of paper to measure your wrist as well.
Determining the proper necklace length will depend upon two things:
- Your individual neck size
- How you want the necklace or pendant to fall against your chest.
The easiest way to measure this is to take a necklace that you already wear and measure that. As a general rule:
- Small neck size or choker length = 16 to 16 ½”
- Slight drape (just below the neck) = 16 ¾” to 17 ½”
- Mid-length = 17 ¾” to 18 ½”
- Long = 19” to 20”
