Bangles are most precious ornament for Indian Women. It should fit nicely on the wrist. Their looseness and shape draw more attention than other jewelries, and imbue them with a particular quality that can be in turns flirtatious, playful, bold, or elegant. There is a bangle for nearly every budget and fashion sensibility.
Before shopping for a bangle, it is important to understand how to find the right fit. Many bangles slide on over the hand, and therefore need to be sized accordingly.
1. Measuring the Wrist
To measure wrist size, use a cloth tape measure or a scale for measurement. Wrap the tape measure around the wrist, so that it fits snugly without feeling too tight or too loose. Mark where the tape measure overlaps: This is the wrist size. A piece of string and straight ruler can also be used if a cloth tape measure is unavailable.
- Take a thin thread.
- Wrap it around your hand bringing your thumb and little finger closer.
- lastly mark the overlapping point of the thread.
- Now take the marked thread and a scale.
- Put that area of thread over the measuring scale and note the inches.
- That will be the diameter of your wrist.
2. How to measure the size of bangle?
Bangles are sized by their diameter, which is a measure of the length of a straight line passing through the centre of the bangle, terminated at both end of the periphery (circumference) of the bangle. The unit of measurement is inches.
An inch is further divided into 16 sections. So, when we say the bangle size is 2-8 (pronounced two eight), it means the diameter of the bangle is 2 full inches plus 8 sections of the total 16 sections of the inch. This effectively converts to 2inches + 8/16 inches, which is 2 inches plus half an inch. In other words this size will be 2.5" (pronounced two point five inches).
