You've seen a bangle in my on-line shop, but don't know how to determine the right size for your hand? How can you get it right every time? Follow this simple technique and you'll get the perfect fit.

How to measure your hand for a bangle by Michele Wyckoff Smith.

Finding a bangle that is the right size is more about the circumference of the widest part of your hand, than the size of your wrist. Tuck your thumb in towards the palm of your hand and then use a tape measure to find the widest point.

Turn your hand over, making sure your thumb is not sticking out. Again, measure to find the widest point.

If your widest point is 20 cm, I recommend you order a bangle just slightly smaller than this measurement so that you have to give it a bit of a push when you put it on. This will keep it securely on your wrist and still have a relaxed fit. 

What if you don't have a tape measure handy? Use a piece of ribbon or even a narrow piece of flexible paper to take the measurement. You can then put it next to a ruler to determine the circumference.

    I’m interested in purchasing the oval hammered silver bangles trio, inspired by Henry Moore.
    I’ve measured my hand and its 22cms, which makes it a little large for the advertised bangles on the etsy website.
    I would be grateful if you could let me know if you have 3 bangles which would fit me.
    Thank you
