How To Measure For A Bracelet

Unless you know your bracelet size, most get nervous when ordering bracelets online. You want your bracelets to fit properly and not be overly large or too small. Starfish gets many questions on what is the best way to measure your wrist and how to find out your bracelet size.  So we decided to dedicate a post to this intriguing question.

Bracelet guideWhat you need: Flexible measuring tape or a strip of paper or thin string.

Tape Measure: Measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone or where you would normal wear a bracelet, then add 1/4″ to 1 ” (1/2″ is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear.

Paper or String: Place it in the same area as above, but mark it where it overlaps on your wrist. Then lay the strip flat to measure up to the mark using any ruler.

Volia! You now have your correct bracelet size!

Check out the charts below to see average sizing. The numbers below are just estimates. However the best way to get your exact size is by using the instructions above.

Basic Sizing Charts

Women’s Length Men’s Length
Petite 7” Small 8”
Medium 7.5- 8” Medium 8.5”
Large 8.5” Large 9”
Plus Size 9” Plus size 9.5”
Ankle 9.5”- 10”

New Artist Alert! Another Great Line for Fall!

Top Trend for Fall Fashion 2012

Various shades of blue have been popping up all over the runways. According to the Marie Claire website- black and blue is the “It” combination of Fall 2012 and the Pantone color Olympian Blue in is in the Fall fashion color report. With the more neutral colors of Fall, adding splashes of color is a great way to make a personal statement. Cobalt pumps is a great addition to a camel colored frock or wearing bright colored jeans.

But need something a little more subtle than an electric blue dress and just as trendy for Fall? Try wearing Turquoise and Blue Topaz jewelry to offset the neutral tones from some of our amazing designers.
