Please enter size in notes during checkout. 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. These are designed for easy on & easy off without a clasp and cannot be made to open or adjust. If needed they can be resized. The following descriptions are meant to make it easy to choose a size if unable to measure hand circumference for a gift. Custom size measure tips are after sizes below.
Petite Adult (7 inch circumference) - Extra slim adult hand...
X Small (7.5 inch circumference) - Slimmer than average adult hand...
Small (8 inch circumference) - Average adult hand - MOST COMMON SIZE...
Medium (8.5 inch circumference) - Medium adult hand, a full size wider than average...
Large (9 inch circumference) - Large or plus size adult hand...
X Large (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra large adult hand...
Custom - Specify a custom size
***Between any 2 sizes above***
Between X Large and Large (9.25 inch circumference) - A tad wider than large adult hand
Between Medium and Large (8.75 inch circumference) - A tad wider than medium adult hand
Between Small and Medium (8.25 inch circumference) - A tad wider than average adult hand
Between X Small and Small (7.75 inch circumference) - A tad slimmer than average adult hand
Between Petite and X Small (7.25 inch circumference) - A tad slimmer than extra small adult hand
Pick the size that seems like the closest match. If you want to play it safe, my advice is to select only .25 inch above the size you are considering.
HOW TO MEASURE FOR CUSTOM SIZES:
Use a flexible tape to measure the circumference of the widest part of hand when held narrow as if sliding on a bangle, with thumb tucked into palm across hand toward pinkie and holding fingers touching together side by side pointed straight out hand flat / knuckles flat in the back. The widest area of hand is usually the bottom of thumb area going around, or lower set of knuckles area going around. Measure tightly. If you don't have a flexible tape you may use a segment of string and then hold the string segment against a ruler.
All of my bangles are without a clasp for easy on & easy off. And cannot be made to open. I'm always happy to resize any bangle if it doesn't fit well. But for international orders the shipping charges can be prohibitive. I don't charge for the actual resizing even if I have to use new metal. I only ask if re-shipping can be covered by the customer.
