HOW TO FIND YOUR BRACELET SIZE
To find your perfect bracelet size, follow these steps:
STEP 1: Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measure or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet.
STEP 2: If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. That would be your wrist size.
STEP 3: To find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size with the appropriate measurements below.
Snug Fit: Add 1/4" to 1/2" to measurement
Comfort Fit: Add 3/4" to 1" to measurement
Loose Fit: Add 1 1/4" to measurement
If you are buying a delicate bracelet with a thin chain, I suggest a more snug fit. Most other bracelets should have a comfort fit except when buying large or thick cuffs or bangles. It's best to buy large bracelets with a loose fit so you don’t feel like you are suffocating your wrist.
HOW TO FIND YOUR BANGLE SIZE
To determine your bangle size, follow these steps:
STEP 1: Close your fingers together and bring your thumb to your little finger. Pretend that you were putting on a bangle
STEP 2: Using a strip of paper or tape measurements, wrap it around your hand at the widest point. If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen on that paper. Then measure that paper strip with a ruler. That would be the circumference of your hand.
STEP 3: Compare your hand circumference to the chart below. Purchase a bangle with a diameter that is the next size up from your actual hand measurement.
Small: 2 3/8"(Diameter) 7 1/2" (Circumference)
Medium: 2 5/8" (Diameter) 8 1/4" (Circumference)
Large: 2 3/4" (Diameter) 8 3/5" (circumference)
WOMEN'S STANDARD NECKLACE SIZES
14" NECKLACE Fits the most like a choker
16" NECKLACE Falls perfectly around the base of the neck like a collar. On a petite woman it will hit your collarbone while for plus size women it might feel more like a choker.
18" NECKLACE A common choice that will fall just below the throat at the collarbone. This length is popular for adding pendants which will hang over a crew neck.
20" NECKLACE Will fall a few inches below the collarbone and allow a little more breathing room. Perfect for a low, plunging neckline or if you want to wear it over a turtleneck.
22" NECKLACE Falls at or above a low neckline.
24" NECKLACE Falls below any neckline.
36" NECKLACE Common with pearl strands and will hang below the bosom. They can be worn as a single strand or you can double them for an 18" necklace.
MEN'S STANDARD NECKLACE SIZES
18" NECKLACE A shorter length that falls just around the base of the neck. Popular for beaded necklaces so they can sit above a crew neck t-shirt.
20" NECKLACE A common length for men which falls right at the collarbone. Pendants will hide under a crew neck or show completely with a low v-neck or unbuttoned dress shirt.
22" NECKLACE Falls a few inches below a collarbone and can be worn over or under a shirt. This is a common length for chains because they offer more breathing room.
24" NECKLACE Extra long and is commonly used to keep religious or meaningful pendants under the shirt and closer to the heart. Falls just above the sternum.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT LENGTH FOR EARRINGS
As with size, the right length of earrings varies by situation. In some cases, it is perfectly acceptable to wear a pair of long earrings. However, in more conservative environments longer earrings can not only be distracting but inappropriate.
With all the different earrings lengths out there, try this simple tip to make sure that your earrings aren't too long for situations where it is better to keep them short.
STEP 1: Take your index finger and find the base of your ear, right at your jawline.
STEP 2: Trace your finger down your jaw bone until you feel it angle. This point is the perfect earrings length for you.
Anything longer may distract people from your face and what you are saying. Certainly, big statement chandelier earrings can be fun and playful, especially if you are wearing an updo or have short hair. With this information; you now know when, where, and how to wear the right earrings size and length.
IF YOU HAVE A SHORT NECK
Women who have short necks have less physical space to between their ears and shoulders. This can cause long chandelier earrings to look awkward because they practically graze the shoulders and make necks appear even shorter than they already are. If you have a short neck, err on the side of caution and choose earrings with a modest length. By creating more physical space between your ears and your shoulders you will create the illusion of a longer neck.
Not sure if you have a short neck? Without any strain or effort, drop your chin to your chest. If you can easily rest your chin on your chest (again, without any strain or stretching) you have a short neck.
FIND YOUR RING SIZE
STEP 1: Get a non-stretchy string or paper about 6" long and 1/4" wide.
STEP 2: Wrap around the base of your finger. It has to fit snug, but not too tight.
STEP 3: Mark the point on the string/paper where it overlaps forming a circle.
STEP 4: Compare the length of the string/paper to an Imperial ruler. That is your ring size.
FINGER MEASURING TIPS:
Make sure your finger is at a normal body temperature -- fingers can shrink or expand when cold or hot. If your knuckle is much larger than your finger’s base, take two separate measurements and choose a size in between. You want a ring to fit over your knuckle, but not be too loose or it will shift around
