Getting the right size is so often the name of the game, whether it’s for a ring or a bangle or even a necklace when you want to get the right layering distance. One of the most common questions I receive is how to measure for my size at home, and if you have the same question, you found the right place.
Of course, as a jeweler, my first recommendation on getting your correct ring size is to go have your finger sized professionally or even try some rings that you know the size, but let’s face the facts…that’s not always an option, so here’s a fancy chart with some options that are your next best choice to getting an accurate size for those digits.

Bangle style bracelets do not have a clasp, so you need them to be able to slip over your hand, entirely. When you’re placing an order with The Chestnut Forge for a bangle, the sizes are measured in inches, so to figure out your size, you just need to measure around the widest part of your hand, at the first knuckles.
- You’ll want to hold your hand in a cone, with all of your fingers pointing together.
- Measure the entire circumference of the largest area that the bangle has to fit over.
- If you don’t have a flexible measuring tape, any piece of string will work then measure the string with a ruler.
Typical size for a bangle on an adult female is 7.75 to 8 inches.
Measuring for a bracelet with a clasp is super easy! Just measure around your wrist with a string or flexible measuring tape in inches. To make sure the bracelet isn’t too tight, add a quarter inch or half inch to that number and select that as your size.
For example: My wrist measurement is 6 inches, so my comfortable bracelet size would be 6.25 (snug) or 6.5 (hangs just slightly at the heel of my hand)
Most common size for a bracelet with a clasp on an adult female is 7 inches.
