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. If the bangle is too large, it may easily come off your wrist with sudden arm movements. Measuring to fit a jade bangle bracelet size is easy, just follow one of the sizing methods below:

Note: Oval shape jade bangles' sizes are different to circular shape jade bangles. Information on how to get your sizing for an oval jade bangle please refer to our ‘Sizing for Oval Jade Bangle Bracelets’ section below.

Circumference Method

Tools required: Tape measurer or a piece of string and ruler

Step 1: Prepare

Hold your thumb towards your little finger as tightly as possible.

Step 2: Measure

Use a measuring tape to measure the widest part of the hand as show below in the picture. If you do not have a measuring tape you can replace it with a string. Then, measure the length of the string on a ruler.

Note: If a tape measurer is not available, you may use a string to measure the circumference instead. Then, using a ruler to obtain the length of the string measurement. 

  • To accurately measure your jade bangle size you must hold your fingers tightly together. Having a second person doing the measurement with the measuring tape would be helpful.
  • For a looser fitting you may add 1 - 5mm to the jade bangle size based on personal preference.
  • When choosing preferred jade bangle size, individuals should take into consideration body build, bone structure, flexibility, medical conditions, and personal preferences etc. As these may result in size differences when choosing the perfect fitting for a jade bangle.

Step 3: Find your size

Using the table below find your corresponding bangle size.

Palm Method

Tools required: Ruler

Step 1: Measure

Using a ruler, measure in millimetres across the back of your knuckles as shown in the picture below. 

Step 2: Calculate 

  • Subtract 10mm from the measurement. This will give you your Regular Fit size.
  • Subtract 5mm from the measurement. This will give you your Loose Fit size.
  • Subtract 12mm from the measurement. This will give you your Tight Fit size.
  • There is a tolerance with fitment. It doesn’t have to be the exactly measurement.

Note: 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.
