Now that you've found your favorite inspirational sterling silver scripture verse bangle bracelet at Clothed with Truth, we're sure that you will want to know if it will fit comfortably on your wrist. You'll want your bangle bracelet to be loose enough to easily slide over and lay nicely on top of your hand while remaining tight enough that it does not accidentally fall off your wrist. You can determine your bangle bracelet size by following these two simple steps:

STEP 1: Close your fingers together and bring your thumb to your little finger as if you were putting on a bangle. (as pictured)

STEP 2: Use a flexible measuring tape, ribbon, string, or even a strip of paper and wrap it snugly around your hand at the widest point, usually at the knuckles and base of the thumb. Mark the place where the strip comes together. The circumference of your hand can then be determined by using a ruler to measure the length of the tape, ribbon, string, or strip of paper. 

Bangles are measured or sized by their diameter in inches. The diameter of a bangle bracelet is measured by a straight line passing from one side of the bracelet to the other side (across the center of the circle).You can determine the diameter of your wrist by dividing the circumference measurement by 3.14. For example, an 8 1/4" circumference is equivalent to approximately a 2 5/8" diameter.
