Finding your bracelet size

For stretch and clasp bracelets, use a measuring tape to measure your wrist exactly where you want the bracelet to lie. If you do not have a measuring tape, use a string or strip of paper. Wrap it around your wrist and use this length to measure against a ruler. Make sure the measuring tape is firm around the base of your hand (aka your wrist). It may be easier to have a friend measure for you.

How should the bracelet fit on my wrist?

Depending on your preference, your bracelet will either fit snugly around your wrist or it will be a little loose. If you like a secure fit, choose bracelets that are your exact wrist measurements.¬†If you like your bracelets a little loose, add 1/4 inches (0.5 ‚Äď 0.7 cm) to your wrist measurement.¬†Don't add too much to your actual wrist length or the bracelet will slip off of your hand completely.¬†

Please note that different beads sizes may affect the sizing of the crystal bracelets, it can be tighter or looser according to the measurement given. It’s recommended to let us know if the measurement provided to us is loose or tight fit so we can decide if additional bead is needed. For example, my wrist size is 15 cm tight fit. 15 beads fits 14.5 cm and 16 beads fits 15.5 cm, we will do 16 beads instead.

How much does my bracelet stretch?

If you're considering a stretch bracelet, you may not be concerned with sizing. However, like stretchy pants, stretchy bracelets can only stretch so much before they will snap. 

Stretch bracelets must be slipped on and off with care. Unfortunately, no one has invented an unbreakable stretch cord yet, so for now, you will have to be very careful when stretching your bracelet. It is best to order your perfect size and avoid a surprise breakage. 

What are Healing Bracelets?

Healing bracelets are jewelry pieces that incorporate the energy of natural gemstones. Depending on the energies you are seeking and which wrist to wear, you will choose the crystal healing bracelet that is appropriate for your needs.

For example, if you are looking to heal your Heart Chakra, you want bracelets with Malachite, Rose Quartz, or Rhodochrosite. If you are looking for Protection from Negativity, you want bracelets with Black Tourmaline, Obsidian, or Pyrite. If you are looking to balance all of your major chakras, you opt for a Chakra Bracelet with all of the colours of the rainbow. 

Crystal bracelets absorb your negative energy and the energies surrounding them. Therefore, it is important that you cleanse your jewelry on a regular basis.
