Please specify size in notes to seller during checkout for your cultured pearl bangle bracelet. Choose from one of my standard sizes below which works for 90% of my customers. Or for a custom size you may measure the circumference of the widest part of your hand (held narrow) where the bangle slides over, then I can custom size your bangle for you. All of my bangles are closed and can’t be opened. Therefore, they have to slide over the hand.
STANDARD SIZE CHART:
Petite: (7 inch circumference) - Extra Slim Adult or Average Teen
X Small: (7.5 inch circumference) - Slimmer Than Average Adult
Small: (8 inch circumference) - Average Adult MOST COMMON SIZE
Medium: (8.5 inch circumference) - Medium Adult 2ND MOST COMMON
Large: (9 inch circumference) - Plus Size Adult
X Large: (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra Large Adult
Between Two Standard Sizes Above: Halfway between any two standard sizes above. Works great if caught between sizes, or for gifts and simply estimating the size range.
X Petite: (6.75 inch circumference) - Extra Petite Adult or Slimmer Than Average Teen
Custom: Specify any custom size... If measuring for a custom size, see instructions below.
Custom size measuring instructions:
With a flexible tape measure the circumference of widest part of hand when held narrow as if sliding on a bangle. Hold fingers touching together side by side while pointed straight out (hand flat / knuckles flat in the back) and then tuck thumb into palm as far as comfortably possible. The widest area is usually bottom of thumb area going around or lower knuckle area going around.
If you don't have a flexible tape you may be able to print one online, You can also use a piece of string to measure around. And pinch the spot where the string wraps around to mark the spot and then hold the string segment to a ruler to see the length.
Sizing Tips - If deciding between two standard sizes above, for example, you think the wearer might be Small 8 inch, but you think they might also be Medium 8.5 inch... Ask yourself which of these two sizes is most likely correct? If your answer is the smaller of the two sizes (in this example small 8 inch), then go with the BETWEEN SIZE of 8.25, and it should be a great fit. Whereas if you think they are most likely the larger of the two standard sizes you are considering (in this example medium 8.5 inch), then go with the larger of the two sizes you are considering, in this case Medium 8.5, and it should fit great.
Sizing Tip #2 - If you can't decide between a standard size above and a size between two standard sizes above, go with the larger of the two sizes you are considering, and it should fit great.
Sizing Tip #3 - If the bracelet is needed for an event such as a wedding, and there would be no time to resize before the event, and you are unsure of the size, then go with .25 inch above (1/4 inch above) the size you are considering. This is equivalent to a half size above... For example, if you're considering Medium 8.5 inch, but unsure about the size, go up by .25 inch to 8.75 inches, and it should be a great fit. It's okay to be a little over by .25 inch or .5 inch.
Another example for a wedding, if you're considering IN-BETWEEN Extra Small and Small = 7.75 inch, but unsure, then go up by a half size which is .25 inch to Small size of 8 inch, and it should be a great fit. It's better to be just a little above true size than a little below true size for an event such as a wedding, if unable to measure for bridesmaids.
*** I can always resize any bangle you order if it doesn't fit perfect. I don't charge a resizing fee even if I have to use new metal. I only ask if you can cover the re-shipping. I want you to enjoy your bangles to their fullest. And come back for more :)

Various pieces may have different turnaround / production times and they are displayed on the page for each piece. Shipping time will vary according to the option you select at checkout.
If you didn't include your jewelry customization requests in "notes box" during checkout such as sizes needed (see size chart below for bangles), initials or number of gift boxes, please send me a message at the following link with that information as soon as possible so I can make and ship your jewelry on time.
If important order details such as initials aren't provided to me I may have to alter the shipping date until I hear from you. If no size is provided to me in time to produce the piece and meet the shipping deadline, then it's assumed the most common size is wanted.
Please see the bangle size chart below, and message me with any questions;
My standard sizes for "slip on bangles" are below. Keep in mind they slide on over the hand. So aren't sized the same way as traditional bracelets using wrist size. The following descriptions are meant to make it easy to choose a size if unable to measure hand circumference for a gift. See custom measuring tips below size chart.
Bangle Size Chart:
Petite Hand: (7 inch circumference) - Extra Slim Adult or Slim Teen
X Small Hand: (7.5 inch circumference) - Slimmer Than Average Adult or Average Teen
Small Hand: (8 inch circumference) - Average Adult or Adult Size Teen MOST COMMON SIZE
Medium Hand: (8.5 inch circumference) - Medium Adult 2ND MOST COMMON
Large Hand: (9 inch circumference) - Plus Size Adult
X Large Hand: (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra Large Adult
***Between sizes: I can also make the bangle halfway between any two sizes above. This can be helpful if caught between sizes, or if you're estimating "size range" for a gift.
***Custom size: Use a flexible tape to measure the circumference of the widest part of hand when held narrow as if sliding on a bangle. Tuck thumb into palm toward pinkie finger as far as comfortably possible while holding other fingers side by side pointed straight out (hand flat / knuckles flat in the back). The widest area is usually the bottom of thumb area going around, or lower set of knuckles area going around. Measure tightly.
*** I'm always happy to resize if needed. There's no charge for any new metal used on a resize. But re-shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
My bangle bracelets are without a clasp for quick & easy putting on, and removal, so must slide over the widest part of your hand when held narrow.
If you didn't add enough total charms to your order including initial charms or crystals, etc, please add the extra charms to you cart so I can make your custom jewelry within the promised time frame;
I want to send your jewelry on time. And I want your jewelry to be made in the correct size on the first go around. However, if I'm not provided with important details such as initials needed, or size, and no reply is sent to my message, I may have to alter the shipping date until I hear from you. Or I may have to make your jewelry in the most common size in order to meet the shipping deadline because if it's a gift I like to make sure you at least have that. If it needs to be resized later we can work something out.
Please contact me here with any personalizations / customizations as mentioned above;
I'd be happy to include a card with a short and sweet hand written message or if you would like me to print the message instead please communicate that to me in a timely fashion.
If you have a special shipping request, just let me know at time of purchase so I can do my best to accommodate.
While I can usually estimate a delivery date range for U.S packages, I cannot outright guarantee the performance of the shipper. International shipping times are hard to predict.
With respects to international orders, you are responsible for any customs charges, import taxes, VAT taxes or local handling fees for putting your package through customs for you that might be added by the government or your local mail service. For example in the UK, Royal Mail may charge an extra handling fee in addition to import or VAT taxes. These fees are the responsibility of the buyer / importer. Please be aware of such charges for importing goods from abroad prior to ordering.

I want you to fully enjoy your purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied, please contact me, and I will do my best to make it right for you. I'm happy to re-size any bangles you ordered free of resizing charge. I only ask that you cover the re-shipping charges.
Any hand stamped or engraved personalized items or custom made items are not eligible to be returned, unless there is a defect such as incorrect initials... Custom made items include bangles made to a custom size specified by the customer... Or if a custom size wasn't provided to me in time to meet the shipping deadline, and I made the bangle size 8" as per my policies. In such a case I'm happy to resize any bangle without charging for the work or without charging for any new metal required to complete the resize provided shipping is covered by the customer. Hand stamped or engraved personalize items are not eligible for return.
Wedding jewelry / bridesmaid jewelry is not eligible to be returned. I work hard to make larger orders for a wedding including for multiple bridesmaids or a multiple jewelry set for bride. On occasion I've had customers attempt to return jewelry after the conclusion of their wedding because it's only been worn one time. Jewelry that I make for a wedding order is not eligible to be "borrowed" for the occasion and then returned.
Wholesale orders are not eligible for return. You may order a small number of pieces at first if you want to sample the merchandise prior to placing a large order.
Other non custom pieces can be returned within 30 days of the order date if notice is provided within 14 days of delivery of intent to return. As soon as I receive the item, I will issue a refund to you for the price of the product, not including the shipping charge in either direction unless their was a mistake on my part with the order.
If I sent your item free shipping, then this amount would be deducted from any refund.
I cannot refund or replace any items that have somehow gone missing from your delivery address, but have been marked "delivered" by USPS or other shipping service.
Regarding tarnish, all silver is prone to tarnish. It can collect tarnish very quickly depending on compounds in the air it's exposed to such as perfume, hairspray, humidity, sulfur from groundwater sprinklers, (eggs or onions cooking), and the list goes on and on. Silver can tarnish just sitting in a jewelry box if the air has any humidity or tarnishing compounds. And tarnish is not grounds for a return as other silver products would have also developed tarnish under the same conditions.
All silver requires care to keep looking shiny. And it's an industry in itself with cleaning solutions, polishing pads, anti-tarnish strips for storage, and anti-tarnish jewelry boxes.
Brass also can develop tarnish and can be removed with a cleaner.
