How to Size for a Cartier Love Bracelet

Fine jewelry manufacturer Cartier introduced the Love Bracelet in the 1970s. The bracelet features a tiny screw as a fastening mechanism instead of a regular clasp so that the bracelet is worn at all times. Cartier used this design to symbolize long-lasting love that is constant and not easily removed or replaced. If you’re planning on wearing a Love Bracelet the way it was intended, you’ll need to make sure that it fits comfortably.

Wrap the tape measure around the wrist you’ll be wearing the bracelet on until it overlaps. Write down the wrist measurement in centimeters, if available, or inches indicated on the tape at the overlapping point.

Use an online converter (see the Resources section) to change your wrist measurement from inches to centimeters, if necessary.

Add one centimeter to your wrist measurement if you want a tight fit. Add two centimeters to your wrist measurement for a loose fit. Visit the Cartier website and consult the Love Bracelet Chart for recommended bracelet sizes based on your wrist measurement.
