Each Bangle is Made to Size;
X Small: 2.25 inches in Diameter (or 7.5 inch Circumference)
Small: 2.5 inches in Diameter (or 8 inch Circumference)
Medium: 2.75 inches in Diameter (or 8.5 inch Circumference)
Large: 3 inches in Diameter (or 9 inch Circumference)
Custom: Specify a custom size.
You can choose from one of the regular sizes on my chart above or if you give me the circumference of the widest part of your hand where the bangle has to be pulled over; then I can size it for you. Just measure around the widest part of your hand with your thumb tucked in toward your pinky, and holding your hand as if sliding over a bangle... You may also use a string to measure around the widest part of your hand and then measure the length of the string... My bangle bracelets are without a clasp for quick & easy putting on, and removal, so must slide over the widest part of your hand.
My jewelry is not intended for infants or young children. Children may be tempted to put jewelry into their mouths, and as with any jewelry, there's always some risk of a piece coming loose and becoming a choking hazard... If ordering for a teenager or older child, sterling silver is suggested.
Care of Brass;
Brass darkens over time depending on conditions exposed to and develops a rich patina that some find pleasing. However, if you prefer the bright gold-like look of the new brass bangle band, it can easily be restored.
Just use a little bit of ketchup and rub it into the metal. Try not to get in onto any stones since the tomato in the ketchup is acidic and might hurt the stone. The same property will quickly clean the brass. Use a paper towel to rub the ketchup around on the metal and them clean it all off with some water. Voila! All bright and shiny again. Repeat this process as often as you like.
Brass vs. 14k Gold-Filled
Brass tarnishes over time depending on conditions exposed to and develops a rich patina. This patina as a nice old world look to it, but it can also be cleaned off very quickly and easily with ketchup as explained earlier.
14k gold-filled is a layer of gold over brass. It is thicker than gold-plated and is meant to last a life time. It is very resistant to tarnish, staying bright and shiny, and also has a little bit more sparkle to it than the brass and it is a little firmer than brass bangle bands. This keeps the bangle band stiffer so it will stay in shape better than the brass. I can make all my bangle bands with 14k gold-filled wire for $10 extra per bangle band compared to the price of a brass bangle band.
To sum it up, if you don’t mind a darker patina or cleaning the brass, go for it. If you are looking for something a little brighter and with more shape and form, I would suggest to upgrade to the 14k gold filled bangle band version. To do so, just select from options when ordering or purchase this upgrade if you are deciding after having already placed order (and it hasn't shipped yet) https://www.etsy.com/listing/112081705/14k-gold-filled-bangle-band-upgrade

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.

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 custom charges that might be added by the government. And there are too many differences for me to calculate any such custom charges into the shipping price. It has come to my attention that the UK in particular is charging a high custom charge on many packages. Please be aware of this potential extra charge before ordering.
Just contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 30 days of delivery

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.
Personalized or custom made items are not available 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, this is still considered a custom size. Once again, I am happy to resize for you.
Wedding jewelry / bridesmaid jewelry is not eligible to be returned. I work hard to make large orders for a wedding including multiple bridesmaids. And on occasion I've had customers attempt to return jewelry after the conclusion of their wedding.
Other pieces can be returned within 30 days of the order date. 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 unless their was a mistake on my part with the order.
