Bangles are a solid and slender version of the bracelet. Unlike the bracelet, bangles are solid and cannot be bent easily.

There are plenty of ways to wear bangles. Bangles could be worn on their own for a simple and stylish look, or they can be combined with several other bangles. When multiple bangles are worn together, they make a very nice clinking sound that is sure to attract the attention of others.

Since bangles are not flexible, they are measured differently than bracelets. Since bangles have multiple variations, we will be sharing three different methods to tackle the different types of bangle we offer. Here we will show you how to determine your bangle size at home.

This method is for the solid bangles that you will need to squeeze your hands through.

Method 1: Measure the widest part of your hand

  1.  Close your fingers and touch your thumb to your little finger.
  2. Wrap a strip of paper or string around the widest part of your hand and mark the spot where they meet.
  3. Measure the length of the strip of paper or the string. This will be the circumference of your hand.
  4. Use the chart to choose the bangle based on your hand circumference. Purchase a bangle that is one size above your hand circumference size.

This method is for bangles that can be unclasped.

Method 2: Measure your wrist

  1. Wrap a strip of paper or string around your wrist.
  2. Mark the spot where they meet.
  3. Measure the length of the strip of paper or string. This will be your wrist circumference.
  4. Depending on if the bangle contains beads or not, you will want to allow an extra 2-2.5cm to fit the beads comfortably.

Method 3: Measure your own bangle

  1. Using a ruler or measuring tape, measure the diameter of the bangle.
  2. Use the chart to determine your bangle size.
