what kind of bracelet will you/did you wear? I am having a difficult time finding a bracelet to fit my wrists. I initially wanted a Swarovski tennis bracelet but their standard size is 7 inches and there are no links to remove to make it smaller. I’m thinking I may have to go with something stretchy. Thoughts? Pictures?

This is the reason I don’t wear many bracelets. Those cute bangles people slide on usually fall off 🙁 I try to stick with the kind that have links that can be removed. I had a really nice watch that had removeable links, and they let me keep the extra, ya know, in case I get plump.

I don’t wear bracelets for this reason.

If you purchase a bracelet off Etsy, most jewelry designers can custom fit them for you. There are lots of pretty bracelets on there that have been handcrafted with Swarovski crystals and/or Swarovski pearls. The cuff bracelet I wore for my wedding was completely made from Swarovski elements and sterling silver. I got my jewelry from this shop.

I have the same problem, the standard size bracelet slides right off me. I started making jewelry several years ago for just this reason. Have you tried checking with Etsy or somewhere you could get a customized small-sized bracelet?

I ended up making my own bracelet so it’d fit, but didnt end up getting to wear it anyways cause my mother had other bracelets she surprised me with on the day of. I made it based on this and got this exact brooch off ebay.

I only wear bracelets with removeable links. With the exception of the one bracelet my mom gave me after I was shocked that it fit me perfectly (it was a cuff). Apparently I got my teensy wrists fom her. I kind of find them annoying though so I tend not to wear bracelets.

I usually don’t wear bracelets due to this reason, but if I do wear one, it’ll be one that my grandma got in the 1950s. Vintage might be an option for you as well.

I have this problem too! I can wear my 5 y/o daughters haha! I did find one on Etsy that she can make with a ribbon closure or measure to your wrist size. But I doubt I will get it. I have tiny wrists and fingers. I am a sz 4 ring! I went to Claires and fit the little girls jewelry too. I never wear them and my wrists look swallowed up in them.
Just in case you want to see the Etsy bracelet

I wore my mom’s pearl bracelet b/c she has skinny wrists and mine look like 2 tiny little chicken bones. Etsy may be your best bet for something custom.

I have really skinny wrists. I bought a stretchy faux diamond bracelet. I think I paid like $30 for it at Macy’s

I had the same issue when shopping for a bracelet, I tried all the department stores but all of them fell off my wrist!
I actually ended up buying a bracelet that wraps around my wrist.

I can’t wear bracelets because of this reason, but I got a pearl one for a birthday gift and the jewelry store resized it for me at no cost so that it fit comfortably. The jewelry store that resized it was not the store that I bought the bracelet from. Some will just do it because they’re trying to earn your future business.

Ahh! I know how all you ladies feel! I rarely wear bracelets for all the same reasons.
I bought a gorgeous bracelet from the YJ Design shop on Etsy. I told the seller I had small wrists and she made it with extra adjustment rings. When I received it, my dad ended up removing most of the links so that I didn’t have a long chain hanging down. Being able to order “custom” is my #1 reason for shopping on etsy 🙂

Have you looked on Etsy? Since their bracelets are mostly handmade you can let the seller know what size you need.
