What size do you need for baby and child bracelets?
For babies and children, these are the most common sizes. The sizes may vary by age.
Because children grow quite quickly you can choose to add an extension chain to your bracelet if you have made a bracelet from nylon thread and finished it with a lobster clasp. Have you made a bracelet of elastic? Then it will last a lot longer! Do you make elastic bracelets for very young children? Then you can also double thread the elastic. The bracelet is gonna be a lot firmer. After all, small children sometimes want to pull at the bracelets.
What size do you need for a ladies and men’s bracelet?
Making ladies’ and mens bracelets to measure is no longer difficult with this table. If you want to sell jewelry, for example, you can choose to make it in all sizes, but you can also give the option of making jewelry to measure and place a similar table in your shop. This way you don’t have to make all the bracelets to size before you can place it in your shop.
Are you at markets? Take especially a pair of pliers and some basic material to adjust a bracelet, so your buying customer is even more surprised by your good service when it does not fit but by adjusting it, it does.
You can use the following sizes for these bracelets.
How do you measure the length for a bracelet?
Do you want to make a bracelet for yourself? Or for a friend? We also have a handy table for that. Of course it differs per person what you like how you wear a bracelet, tight, normal or rather loose?
Measuring the right length for a bracelet is very simple. You measure the circumference of your wrist. It is best to do this with a flexible tape measure.
So for example, if you have a wrist circumference of 16 centimeters, and you like to wear your bracelets tight, then you should make a bracelet with the following size: 16 + 1.5 = 17.5 cm. If you like to wear your bracelets normally, then take your wrist circumference + 2cm. For a loose bracelet use your wrist circumference + 3cm.
What size necklace do you need for women?
Are you going to make a necklace and want to measure it to size? To do this, use a flexible tape measure and hang it in front of the customer or yourself as if you were wearing a necklace. For the standard sizes of a necklace you will find the table below.
