Authentic Swarovski bracelets allow the wearer the option of adjusting a bracelet to at least three different sizes without having to alter the bracelet. On some of its designs this appears as three large eyes spaced along a fine chain at the end of the bracelet. In other cases, a large-linked chain is attached to the end of bulkier bracelet designs. Swarovski bracelets range between 6 and 7 inches long and can be taken in to between 5 1/2 and 6 1/2 inches.
Arrange the bracelet across your thigh or a table. Orient the bracelet so that any charms are wrong side up and pointing away from you.
Lay your wrist across the bracelet.
Lift the eye end of the bracelet and drape it across your wrist.
Open the lobster clasp with your free hand.
Choose one of the eyes closer to the body of the bracelet and insert the clasp.
Test the fit of the bracelet by holding your hand at your side. The bracelet should rest at the point where your wrist begins to widen into your palm. If the bracelet is too large, it will slip beyond this point.
