You can use our ring sizer pictured above, to print the ring sizer, be sure that your printer is set to 100%. In other words, make sure that you have not reduced the print size in 'page set up.' You can verify that the sizer printed correctly by measuring it with a ruler; it should measure from left to right: 3 3/8 inches.
Once you have printed the sizer, you may cut it out and use it or try the following directions to measure ring size of your finger.
Step 1--Wrap a string or piece of paper around your finger.
Step 2--With A Pen Mark the point where the two ends meet.
Step 3-- Using the chart, place the end of the string on the left hand line next to the letter "A" and stretch the string along the sizer toward the numbers.
Step 4-- The pen mark on your string should line up with a number to indicate your ring size. Find your measurement on the chart below to determine your ring size.

To determine adult bracelet size, measure the wrist with a flexible tape measure just below the wrist bone, where you would place your wrist watch and measure snug (See image). Now add 1 - 1.25". This is approximate sizing and not a guarantee of prefect sizing .Men's bracelets are longer at 7.5 to 9 inches. A bracelet of 8 inches is the most common in men's bracelets. Women's bangles are 7 inches in length with a 2.5-inch diameter. Be sure to account for comfort and movement and remember that bangles will need more room to move over your wrist. We do have an 1/8" tolerance in sizing due to bead size variations. We will attempt to make it as close as possible to the size requested.
If this bracelet is a gift for an adult or young lady, and you don't know wrist size, we would consider 7 as petite, 7.25 as small, 7.5 as medium, 7.75 as large, and 8.0 as XLarge. Our average appears to be 7.25 to 7.5 ins.
To determine smaller sizes, measure her/his wrist and add 1/2" for ages 3 and under. Add 3/4" for ages 3 and over.
When choosing a necklace, it can be tricky to find one that fits comfortably around your neck. Fortunately, there are some basic tips on necklace lengths. The standard chain length is 16 to 20 inches, which sits just between the base of the throat and the collarbone for most people. And just like style, the correct length for you is based on personal taste. It's also nice to have different sizes and styles of necklaces available for different occasions.
