For quicker turnaround on your order please select a size for each bangle ordered from my standard sizes for "slip on bangles" below. And mention the size in personalization notes for your order. Keep in mind they slide over the hand when hand is held narrow with thumb tucked into palm, 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... And if caught between sizes or estimating "size range" for a gift, I can make between any 2 sizes below. I'm always happy to resize if needed.
Petite: (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...
Large: (9 inch circumference) - Plus Size Adult Hand...
X Large: (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra Large Adult Hand...
BETWEEN ANY TWO SIZES ABOVE: 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.

HOW TO PICK A SIZE FOR A GREAT FIT:
It's very easy to pick a size without measuring. I have a wide range of sizes including "IN-BETWEEN" sizes to make it easy to gift without a measurement. Follow these steps. And if you have any questions or need help. Please ask me via message at this link. I am here for you... https://www.etsy.com/conversations/new?with_id=7875084
Please include size in notes during checkout.
Sizing Tip #1) Look at MAIN SIZES below and read description of hand width/circumference. If you see a size & description that sounds like it's a good match, it's probably a great fit.
Petite Adult (7 inch circumference) - Slim hand width of average size teenager
Extra Small (7.5 inch circumference) - Slender hand width, narrower than average adult
#1 SMALL (8 inch circumference) - Average adult hand width - #1 MOST COMMON SIZE
#2 MEDIUM (8.5 inch circumference) - Medium adult hand width - #2 MOST POPULAR SIZE
Large (9 inch circumference) - Large adult hand width
Extra Large (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra large adult hand width
Custom Size - Specify a custom size in "notes" during checkout
Sizing Tip #2) If CAUGHT BETWEEN TWO MAIN SIZES above, for example caught between Medium 8.5 inch and Large 9 inch, simply choose the IN-BETWEEN SIZE of 8.75 inch below, and it should be a great fit.
In-Between EXTRA LARGE and LARGE (9.25 inch circumference) - A little above large
In-Between MEDIUM and LARGE (8.75 inch circumference) - A little above medium
IN-BETWEEN SMALL and MEDIUM (8.25 inch circumference) - A little larger than average (BETWEEN 2 MOST COMMON)
In-Between EXTRA SMALL and SMALL (7.75 inch circumference) - A little below most common size of small
In-Between PETITE and EXTRA SMALL (7.25 inch circumference) - Very narrow width, slightly larger than average teen
In-Between EXTRA PETITE and PETITE ADULT (6.75 inch circumference) - Extra petite adult, narrower than average teen
Sizing Tip #3) If uncertain about an IN-BETWEEN SIZE and also uncertain between two MAIN SIZES, for example, you think the wearer might be most common 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 IN-BETWEEN SIZE of 8.25, just above the smaller of the two sizes you are considering, and it should fit great... HOWEVER, if you think they are most likely the larger of the two MAIN SIZES you are considering (in this example medium 8.5 inch), then go with the larger of the two main sizes, in this case Medium 8.5 inch, skipping over the in-between size, and it should fit great.
Sizing Tip #4) If you can't decide between a MAIN SIZE and an IN-BETWEEN SIZE, go with the larger of the two sizes you are considering, and it should fit great.
Sizing Tip #5) If the bangle is needed for an event such as a wedding, and there would be no time to resize before the event, if unsure about the size select a "half size" above the size you are considering. For example, if you're considering Medium 8.5 inch, but unsure about the size, go up by a half size which is 1/4 inch (.25 inch) to the IN-BETWEEN size of 8.75 inch, and it should fit great... Another example, if you're considering the IN-BETWEEN Extra Small and Small 7.75 inch, but unsure about the size, go up by a half size which is 1/4 inch (.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.
HOW TO MEASURE:
If you are measuring, either measure one of your favorite bangles, or give me the circumference of the widest area of your hand where the bangle will slide over... To measure hold your hand narrow as if sliding a bangle on with your thumb pointed toward pinkie. Measure circumference with a flexible tape, or with a piece of string going around the widest area of hand.
Check flexible tape for measurement, or pinch the string at the point where it comes around hand, and hold this segment of string to a ruler to see the size.
All of my bangles are without a clasp for easy on & easy off. They cannot be made to open. I can always resize a bangle for you if it doesn't fit perfect. I don't charge any resizing fee. I want you to enjoy your bangles to their fullest. And come back for more.
This bracelet created and hand crafted with great care and love for you and yours. All of my items including this graduation bracelet are special creations based on original Frosted Willow designs & concepts.

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 would be 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.

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.

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.

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.
