In this article you’ll discover an easy 3 step process you can use to find out the best length for your Pandora bracelet
Step One – Measure your wrist with a tape-measure
First, start by measuring your wrist.
Take a tape-measure, and wrap it around your wrist. Have the tape-measure sit flat on your skin around your wrist, without pulling at your skin. Wrap it comfortably – so make it not too loose and not too tight.
Then read the length measurement and round it up to the next cm on the tape measure.
For example, if the tape measure shows a length measurement as 16.5cm. Rounding that up to the closest cm makes it 17cm.
Step Two – Adding space for your Pandora charms to fit
You don’t want your Pandora bracelet to be as firm a fit as your tape-measure. You need room for the Pandora charms to fit, and for the bracelet to feel comfortable.
General Rule: Add 2cm to your wrist length
For example: Step 1 measurement was 17cm
17cm + 2cm = 19cm
For most Pandora bracelets you would add 2cm to your length, that’s the general rule of thumb for an average number of charms on your bracelet.
But if you intent to fill your Pandora bracelet all the way around the Pandora charms, you could add 3cm instead of 2cm, to give a bit extra room to fit the larger number of charms.
Step 3 – Selecting your bracelet length
Pandora bracelets are available in 7 lengths :
- 16cm – new length!
Choose the closest bracelet length to your Step 2 length.
If your length from step 2 is less than 17cm, choose the 17cm length.
If your step two length was 22cm, choose the 23cm length (because Pandora don’t make a 22cm length).
Giving a gift bracelet
If you’re giving a Pandora bracelet as a gift you don’t always have the ability to measure the wrist measurement without giving away the surprise.
So if you can’t measure the gift recipient’s wrist – you’re best option is to choose the most popular bracelet length – which is the average bracelet length for most ladies – the 19cm length.
Hopefully this information will help you to choose the right length for your Pandora bracelet.
