Finding the right Jade Bangle Bracelet Size

Choosing the correct size jade bangle is crucial to ensure that it will fit you perfectly. A jade bangles is a rigid piece of jewellery and will not mould around your wrist. If the size is too narrow to fit over your knuckles, it will not fit. Though there is good tolerance from the minimum size, if the bangle is too large, it will easily come off your wrist. Measuring to fit a jade bangle bracelet size is easy, just follow one of the sizing methods below:

Palm Method

Using a ruler, measure across the knuckles as shown in the picture below.

The measurement you just took is a loose/large fit bangle size that will be very easy to fit through your knuckles. There is a tolerance for fitment and doesn’t have to be exactly perfect size. For a regular fit, choose a size that is 5mm smaller than your palm measurement. You can choose upto 12 mm smaller depending on how flexible your knuckles are, without having the bangle being too small. Refer to the fitting guide on how to fit a jade bangle.

Above 75mmAbove 65mm--

The sizing measurement achieved using this method will provide you with a rough estimate of your size based on our records of past fitment averages. Actual size required may differ due to individual factors such as body build, bone structure, flexibility, and medical conditions, etc.

Existing Bangle Method

This method of measuring for the size of a jade bangle bracelet is highly accurate but will require a bangle that is known to fit your hand. Any bangle bracelet will do as long as it's solid and not hinged for fitment. It doesn't even have to be your own. Trying on bangles from friends or family can give you an accurate fitting measurement. 

Using a ruler or a digital caliper, measure the diameter of an exiting solid bangle that fits your hand. Ensure that the measurement is taken from the centre of the bangle.
