Many bangle bracelets on our site are standard closed bangles that need to fit over your hand. These bracelets do not open or stretch, so getting the right size for your hand is important.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HAND ✋
METHOD 1 - measuring tape Measure around your hand at the widest part. Stick out your fingers and tuck in your thumb as if you are trying to squeeze into a bangle. Measure around the knuckle area or the *widest* part of your hand with the measuring tape. Pull the tape snug. This is the circumference.
METHOD 2 - string and a ruler No tape measure? Wrap a string around your hand instead, pinch it to mark the length around, and then use a ruler to determine the length of the string. This is the circumference.
METHOD 3 - use another bangle bracelet as a guide If you already own a closed bangle bracelet that fits you well, you can measure the diameter of the opening to match one of the sizes in the chart above.
SELECTING THE RIGHT SIZE 🤔
Order the closest match to the measurement you got, sizing down when necessary – you don't want the bangle too big and slipping off.
(For example, if my hand is 8.25 inches around. I would choose a size MEDIUM bangle that is 8 inches rather than the size LARGE that is 8.5 inches.)
