Choosing Necklace Lengths for Women
It is important to consider the length of the necklace or chain, and where it will sit on the person who is going to be wearing it. 

Consider the occasion, season and clothing that is likely to be worn with the item, generally, in winter longer necklaces are worn over bulky warm clothing, a shorter length may look wonderful with a dress with a scooped neckline, or a shirt, but may not fit over a sweater.  Many women opt for longer necklaces in the winter as bulky clothing may require the extra length.

Take the wearer's size into account.  A 50cm necklace on a petite woman may be too long, whereas the same necklace on a larger woman would sit at a better length.

Finding the Correct Bracelet Size
Link Bracelet
It is a simple matter to get the correct size with a Link Bracelet.  Simply measure your wrist just below the wrist-bone with a measuring tape, add 2 cm to this number. This is your link bracelet size. 
 
You can round down quite safely for a tighter fit – but remember it is easier to remove extra links than insert them!
 
Cuff
Sizing a Cuff is no more difficult. In the description of each cuff, the “gap size” is stated.  Measure the depth of your wrist (from the back of your hand towards to your palm) to ensure the gap is wide enough to slide on sideways.
 
You should never squeeze a Cuff, over time this can cause stress on the material and may break.
 
Rigid Bangle
Bangles have neither a gap nor a clasp – so it is more important to get the size right.  Again, this is not difficult; simply measure the widest part of your hand with your thumb touching your little finger, add 2cm to this. 
 
This measurement is your Bracelet size.  Be careful when rounding this number down, it might end up a tight squeeze!
