But right now, let’s see if we can get you measured up and find the right personalised silver bangle for you.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • A soft tape measure, or
  • A piece of string or paper and a ruler
  • A current favourite bracelet, or
  • A marker pen and a ruler

Option One: Measuring Your Hand’s Circumference

Let’s start by measuring your hand.

It’s pretty straightforward, so we should have you measured up in minutes.

First, you need a tape measure...

If you’ve got a soft tape measure – perfect. If not, see the other options below.

But assuming you’ve got a soft tape measure, the most important element here is to measure the correct part of your hand.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Touch the end of your thumb to the end of your little finger, kind of like you’re making a sock puppet.
  2. Now take the tape measure and wrap it around the widest part of your hand, around the knuckles.
  3. Take your marker pen and make a note of where the points meet.

That’s your hand circumference measurement.

When it comes to choosing which size Belle & Bee personalised silver bangle to order, you can follow this table:

Hand Circumference

Belle & Bee Size

Less than 20cm

Small

20cm-21cmmm

Medium

Greater than 21cm

Large


Now you know your perfect size.

And you can choose the perfect message and order your perfect bangle:

If you don’t have a soft tape measure, you can do the same with a piece of string.

Wrap the string around the widest point of your hand and pinch it or cut the string where it meets itself.

Then measure the piece of string against a ruler. This will give you the right size, which you can compare to the table above.

Or, if you’re struggling to find a soft tape measure or a piece of string – you can use a piece of standard A4 paper.

Just wrap the paper around your wrist, pinch or mark where the paper meets itself and unroll the paper and measure with your ruler. Bingo.

Option Two: Measuring Your Knuckles

Another method you could choose to use for identifying which personalised silver bangle size you should order is to measure the distance between your knuckles.

Sounds weird, we know. But it’s actually very simple.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Clench your fist together.
  2. With a marker pen, mark a dot in the middle of the knuckle of your little finger.
  3. Then mark a dot in the middle of your index finger.
  4. Relax your hand and measure the distance between the two dots with a ruler.

That’s your knuckle distance measurement.

When it comes to choosing which size Belle & Bee personalised silver bangle to order, you can follow this table:

Knuckle Distance

Belle & Bee Size

Less than 6.4mm

Small

6.4 - 6.6mm

Medium

Greater than 6.8

Large


Got your size? Great.

Now you just need to choose the right personalised message and you’re sorted.

Option Three: Measuring A Current Bangle

A third option is to figure out the size of a bangle you already wear.

This is pretty easy to do. But there’s one thing to be mindful of.

You need to measure the distance across the bangle on the inside, not on the outside.

The outside measurement might change depending on the thickness of the bangle itself. But the whole inside remains the same.

That’s your bangle diameter measurement.

When it comes to choosing which size Belle & Bee personalised silver bangle to order, you can follow this table:

Bangle Diameter

Belle & Bee Size

Less than 6.2mm

Small

6.4mm

Medium

Greater than 6.8mm

Large


And there you have it…

Three simple ways to figure out which size bangle is right for you. Now you can be sure your beautiful memento fits your wrist perfectly.

The only thing left to do now is choose what you’d like your personalised silver bangle to say.

Bracelets: Measure Your Wrist, Not Your Hand

Before we go, we thought it might also be useful to give you some guidance on how to measure up for a personalised silver bracelet too.

Measuring for a bracelet as opposed to a bangle is pretty similar with one key difference.

When it comes to measuring for a bracelet...

You need to measure the widest point of your wrist, not your hand. This is because a bracelet comes with a clasp and therefore doesn’t need to be stretched over your knuckles.

You can use the same techniques as above, but all you need to do is wrap the measure around your wrist at the widest point.

The widest point is across the wrist bone – those two knobbly bits sticking out either side of your wrist just below the hand.

That will give you your wrist circumference and then you can figure out the best size from the table below.

Depending on the fit you’re looking for, you might want to add a little to this so that the bracelet is a little looser.

Wrist Diameter

Belle & Bee Size

Less than 6.2mm

Small

6.4mm

Medium

Greater than 6.8mm

Large


As you can see, it’s pretty straightforward and once you’ve got your size, it’s just a case of choosing the right message.
