How to measure the size for а round or oval bangle without hinge? (Classic, Droplet, Signature Full)

Classic, Droplet, Signature Full

Have you noticed when trying on a bangle it could be difficult to slip it through your hand or it falls off when you drop your arm down? The key measure is not your wrist, but your hand.





You have two alternatives for the correct measurement:

Measure using an existing bangle

If you have an existing bangle which is perfect size and the same shape as the one you are currently designing, use a ruler and measure the inner diameter of your bangle. If your existing and new bangle are oval shape, measure also the shorter diameter of existing bangle the same way. This is all you will need for your new bangle.

Note: you need take measurements from a bangle of same shape. Measurements from oval bangle to create a round one do not correspond well. Also, a length of bracelet will result wrong size.

Tools needed: ruler or measuring tape, either in centimeters (cm) and inches (in).


Measure with an existing bangle for reference

If you don’t have any old bangles for reference, there is one key measurements to take. A correct size of bangle just slips through your hand! Don’t measure your wrist circumference, instead squeeze your hand as small as you can and measure the circumference of the widest part of your hand. Keep the measuring tape comfortably lose – it should be possible to slide it through your hand.

Tools needed: a flexible measuring tape (easy body measuring tape or just a basic one). If you do not have a measuring tape, use a piece of string and measure it on ruler.
