How to Size a Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet

How to Size a Sterling Silver Charm BraceletSterling silver charm bracelets make fantastic jewelry pieces for several reasons. These keepsakes are often made out of precious metal, but are not as expensive as a gold charm bracelet. These bracelets also allow the user to personalize their bracelet and add unique charms to it. Getting the right size bracelet on eBay is crucial. For a secure fit, the buyer should measure the wrist and then decide on which charms are best to wear with the bracelet.

Charm Bracelet Design

There are two basic designs when it comes to charm bracelets. One is the slider bracelet, made popular by Pandora, which features charms with a hole in the center that slide over the bracelet. The second is a charm bangle bracelet, in which the charms hang off the links of the bracelet. Due to the different ways the charms fit onto the bracelet, deciding which type of charms to add plays an important role in sizing the bracelet.

Slider Charms

Slider charms fit around the bracelet and come in different sizes and styles. Gold charms, silver charms, and Murano glass charms are all popular examples of slider charms. They act like large beads and the wearer creates a charm bracelet by stringing the slider charms together over the threads of the bracelet. Because these charms affect the fit of the bracelet, Pandora recommends buying a bracelet that is one inch larger than the wrist for the best size.

Bangle Charms

Bangle charms come with small clasps attached to the chains of the bracelet. They do not work with the thread design of a slider charm bracelet. However, some slider bracelets have stations for clipping bangle charms. Since bangle charms do not affect the fit of a bracelet, wearers should buy a bracelet that is the same size as their wrist. However, if the bracelet includes both sliders and bangles, then a size that is one inch larger than the wrist size should be purchased.

Measuring Wrist Size

A secure fit starts with the right measurements. A flexible tape measure is wrapped directly above the wrist bone. It is easy to tell where the wrist bone is because it forms a small bump directly above the hand. This is the measurement size. If the buyer has very small hands, the measurement is taken just above the wrist bone. This will prevent the bracelet from sliding down over the wrist and off the hand.

Most charm bracelets come in centimeter sizes, but some dealers also sell them in inch sizes. The chart below gives potential customers a better idea of what to expect from sizing up a wrist to the measurements of the bracelet.

When wearing the bracelet higher up the arm, for example above a watch or another bracelet, it is important to select a bigger size. For example, if the buyer normally wears an 18 cm bracelet, a 19 cm or 20 cm bracelet should be considered.
