Getting the right fit

In the following you will find information to help you with the sizing of necklaces, bracelets, bangles and rings.

Necklaces

Once you have decided where you would like the necklace to sit, you can easily determine how long it will have to be by taking a string and measuring the total necklace length you would like.

Most pendants come on chains of 42cm /16.5” or 45cm /17.7” but can often be changed for something shorter or longer on request.

Bracelets

Throughout the descriptions of KW bracelets you will see measurements given as a "fit", this means that the inside circumference has been measured, not just the length from end to end. So although a bracelet might be a lot longer, it might only have a fit of 18cms/7.1". This means that it would fit you the same as an 18cms /7.1" long piece of thin chain would, for example. Therefore, you can take a piece of string, wrap it around your wrist so that it fits how you would like your bracelet to and then measure that length. That measurement is what to look for throughout this site and is your fit, you do not need to take into account that the bracelet you are looking at may be quite chunky.

Bangles

To know if a bangle is the right size for you, clench your fist and measure the width of your knuckles. This measurement should be a little bit larger than the inside width of the bangle. The average size is 6.5cm/2.6” and this usually fits fists that measure 7.5cm /3” wide.

Rings

There are several factors that affect ring size besides actual finger measurement. First, fingers are not perfectly round, although most rings are. Second, the difference in size between finger joints and the place where a ring sits also affects the choice of ring size. Third, fingers change size in response to body chemistry and temperature, sometimes by several sizes.
The size that is chosen is also affected by the specific ring. Wider rings and those in which a stone or setting projects toward the finger will require larger sizes than thinner rings, even for the same finger. Often, the best way to determine ring size is to go to a jeweller for a fitting.

Ideal scenario would be if you could send us a ring that is exactly the size you would like your new ring to be, so that we can take the measurements ourselves, however we understand that you might not wish to do so. As a relatively accurate alternative you may order a plastic ring sizer to find a size that you can comfortably slip on and off. (The value of the ring sizer will be discounted from your first order of a KWjewellery ring or set of rings.)
