Bracelet Sizing Guide
Tips to order the proper fitting bracelet:
- Using a flexible tape or a strip of paper or string to measure, wrap it completely around your wrist in a comfortable fashion where the bracelet is to be worn. Then measure against a tape measure to find the correct inch size.
- If you are buying a bangle bracelet (no clasp), loosely wrap the measuring tape around your knuckles. Add approximately add 3/4 inch to 1-inch to the measurement. Then measure against a tape measure to find the correct inch size.
- Most cuff bracelets can be opened or closed approximately a half size to get a good size fit. However, they should be fitted correctly by a jeweler and not bent on and off frequently.
- For women the standard size is 7 inches, for larger women 8 inches.
- If you measure below a 7-inch, we recommend purchasing a 7-inch link chain bracelet that can be cut down and fitted easily by a jeweler.
- For men the standard size is 8 inches, for larger men 9 inches.
Cuff Bracelet Care Guide
When properly cared for a cuff bracelet can last many years. The first step in caring for your bracelet should be to visit one of our stores to ensure that your cuff fits properly. Above all, DO NOT BEND your bracelet. Bending a cuff bracelet can permanently damage it, by causing a small crack in it, which cannot be repaired. If you visit one of our stores our silversmith can use the proper tools to custom fit the bracelet to you. We do not charge for this service, but it makes all the difference in the longevity of your bracelet.

Necklace Sizing Guide
Choose the next length up for larger necks.
Women’s Standard Length Necklace Sizes:
16 inches – At the collarbone
18 inches – Just below the collarbone
20 inches – A few inches below the collarbone
22 inches – At or above the neckline
24 inches – Below the neckline
Men’s Standard Length Chain Sizes:
18 inches – Base of the neck (for smaller neck sizes)
20 inches – To the collarbone (common length for average men)
22 inches – A few inches below the collarbone
24 inches – Just above the sternum
- Necklace lengths are measured from the hollow at the base of the throat. If your neck measures 13 inches, then a 16-inch necklace will drape about one and one half inches below the base of the throat. The common approximation is to allow one half inch of drape per each inch of necklace length.
- A necklace is considered a frame of a woman’s features and designates the area to drawn attention to. Shorter necklaces will draw attention to a woman’s face while longer necklaces will direct the eyes to your chest. Our necklace Sizing Guide can assist you in making the right choice of a necklace or pendant set.
- Heavier pendants will pull lighter chain necklaces down 1/4 inch.
Omega chains will hold the weight of a pendant better; therefore there is less pull on the chain. These chains come in sizes 16”, 18”, and 20”. The general rule for omega chain is if you are normally a 16”-18” in link chains, in an omega chain you fit in a 16”, if you are normally a 18”-20” in link chains, in an omega chain you fit in a 18”, if you are normally a 20”-22” in link chains, in an omega chain you fit in a 20”.
