How to find out your wrist size?
Ordering bracelets is easier if you know your correct wrist size. These simple instructions tell you how to measure your wrist properly so you can be sure your bracelets will fit right.
Using a flexible measuring tape*, Measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add 0.5cm to 2cm (1cm is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear. Remember: leather is an organic material that will expand a little with wear, so bear that in mind!
*TIP: If you don’t have a tape measure handy, use a strip of paper or thin string, and mark it where it overlaps on your wrist. Then lay the strip flat to measure up to the mark using any ruler.
Why it’s important to use a flat tape measure or small string or strip of paper?
With bracelets the actual length is not what is a concern, it’s the inner diameter when latched shut. That’s because the stainless steel pieces themselves take up space on the inside circumference. That makes making the inside measurement smaller than the length when laid out flat. What is needed to actually wear a bracelet is for the inner diameter to match the outer circumference of your wrist. That’s why we ask people to use a tape measure, strip of paper, or small string – it’s not bulky, so the inner circumference is virtually the same as the lengthy when laid flat. Using bulky things to measure (like other bracelets, beaded things, chains, etc.) causes the problem of the length when laid flat not being the same as the inner circumference when worn.

How can to decide on the size when ordering a bracelet for a gift?
Based on our sales in the shop, where we meet the customers and discuss sizes for gifts, the most popular sizes per gender are:
Women: X-SMALL | SMALL | MEDIUM
Men: MEDIUM | LARGE | X-LARGE
* TIP: Think about your wrist compared to the one of the person you will give the gift. Do you need the same size as yours or something slightly bigger or smaller? It always helps our customers when making the decision in the shop for their gifts!
The size I am looking for is not on the drop-down menu, what should I do?
There are certain styles of bracelets that we sell on our website that only come in certain sizes. In case you are looking for a particular bracelet and your size is not displayed, please contact us.
All custom cuffs are made to order according to your specification, you design it and we create it. The advantage with the cuffs, is that they all come with 2 sizes as the rivets that close them can be moved to difference holes, so that will give you an extra size per cuff (or even 3 sizes if requested).
