How to Figure Out the Size for a Pandora Bracelet

by Jonae Fredericks

Pandora is a Danish company based out of Copenhagen Denmark. Pandora products are manufactured worldwide with the largest segment of employees concentrated in Thailand. The company’s handcrafted jewelry pieces sell within 55 countries including the U.S. If you are considering a Pandora bracelet for yourself or someone else, wrist measurements are necessary to ensure a proper fit. Pandora bracelets that are too big or too small may be subject to loss or breakage.

Items you will need

  • Flexible tape measure
  • Pandora bracelet sizing chart
Step 1

Wrap a flexible tape measure around your wrist, creating a snug fit. For ease of measurement, Pandora’s sizing scale is in both inches and centimeters. A tape measure containing either measuring system should suffice.

Step 2

Take note of the measurement and jot it down to use as a reference. If you are measuring for a clasp bracelet in centimeters, add 1 cm to the original length. Add 1 inch to the measurement if you are measuring for a clasp bracelet in inches.

Step 3

Check the Pandora sizing chart for the perfect fit. Centimeter measurements start at 17 cm, with the largest bracelets measuring 23 cm in length. Inch measurements run in .4-inch intervals, with the shortest length measuring at 6.7 inches and the largest 9.1 inches.

Step 4

Look at the sizing chart to figure out which size will work best for you. For instance, if your writs measures exactly 7 inches, Pandora requires you to add an additional inch, which brings your bracelet measurement to 8 inches. According to the Pandora sizing chart, a bracelet measuring 8.3 inches is best.

Tips

  • If you lack the agility to open and close a clasp each time you wish to put on and remove your Pandora bracelet, choose a larger bracelet size that will allow you to roll the bracelet up and down your hand. This will require you to measure your hand at it widest point. Simply close your hand and wrap the measuring tape snugly around the widest portion. The result is the measurement you will use to determine bracelet size; you do not need to add 1 inch or 1 cm to this measurement.

Warnings

  • Keep in mind that as soon as you begin adding beads to your new Pandora bracelet, it will fit tighter. Measure accordingly.
