I make these simulated birthstone bracelets with rhinestones or if December (glass stone) and transform them into a dainty & delicate simulated birthstone bracelets with your choice of bangle band in brass, silver filled, 14k gold filled, or sterling silver, and initial charm in 14k gold filled or sterling silver depending on the bangle band you select.
Rhinestones and glass stones have the beauty of a real stone, but without the high price tag.
These make great gifts for bridesmaids, maid of honor, mother of the bride, and mother of the groom. Especially if you don't want everyone to wear the same exact bracelet at your wedding.
My size chart below is easy to pick from without even measuring hand circumference. Just match general size of wearer to the description, and it should be a great fit. It's meant to be easy. If measuring (see instructions at the bottom). All of my bangles are clasp-free for easy on, easy off. Therefore they slide on over the hand. And cannot be made to open. If you need any help selecting a size please message me at the following link after ordering and I will happily help you choose; https://www.etsy.com/conversations/new?with_id=7875084
Having handcrafted over 100,000 bangles in my life, I developed the size chart below to enable my customers to pick a size from the right range without having to measure for themselves or for gifts.
MAIN SIZES - EASY PICKING - OVER 85% OF MY CUSTOMERS CHOOSE A MAIN SIZE:
Petite: 7 inch circumference - Very slim adult hand, comparable to average size teen.
XSmall: 7.5 inch circumference - Slender hand - narrower than the average adult.
Small: 8 inch circumference - MOST COMMON SIZE - average size woman.
Medium: 8.5 inch circumference - 2ND MOST COMMON - medium adult hand size.
Large: 9 inch circumference - Larger adult hand size.
XLarge: 9.5 inch circumference - Extra large adult hand size.
SIZE TIP #1:
If you are caught in the middle of two main sizes above, or unsure and unable to measure for gifts, I can make in-between the "two most likely sizes" for that person, and it should be a great fit. See "in-between" sizes below. Usually 2 or 3 different sizes can work for the same person because my sizes are so close together. Each "in-between" size is just 1/4 inch apart (.25 inch apart) from main sizes above. This makes it very easy to choose a size from the right range without having to measure in the majority of instances.
IN-BETWEEN SIZES GROUP A - 3 SIZES FOR "SMALLER" THAN AVERAGE ADULT HAND
6.75 inch: Between XPETITE & PETITE - half size smaller than average teen hand.
7.25 inch: Between PETITE & XSMALL - half size larger than average teen hand.
7.75 inch: Between XSMALL & SMALL - half size smaller than average adult hand.
IN-BETWEEN SIZES GROUP B - 3 SIZES FOR "LARGER" THAN AVERAGE ADULT HAND
8.25 inch: Between SMALL & MEDIUM - half size larger than average adult hand.
8.75 inch: Between MEDIUM & LARGE - half size larger than medium adult hand.
9.25 inch: Between LARGE & XLARGE - - half size above large adult hand.
SIZE TIP #2:
If in doubt, choose the larger of the two sizes you're considering. Better to be a little bit over than a little under. For example, if you are deciding between a Main Size and In-Between Size, choose the larger of those two sizes if you unsure, and it should be a perfectly good fit.
I can always resize any bangle if not a perfect fit. I don't charge any resizing fee. I want everyone to know their true size, and to be a repeat customer. My Frosted Willow shop has over 500 original bangle bracelet designs.
HOW TO MEASURE:
If you are measuring give me the circumference of the widest area of your hand where the bangle will slide over. To measure hold your hand flat as a pancake, fingers together pointed straight up with knuckles flat in the back. Make hand narrow by moving thumb into palm of hand or point thumb toward pinkie to make hand narrow as if sliding on a bangle. Measure circumference around widest area of hand (usually bottom of thumb area) using a flexible tape. You may also use a piece of string to measure. Check flexible tape for measurement, or pinch the string at the point where it comes around hand, and hold the segment of string up to a ruler to see the size. You may also measure one of your favorite bangles.
