Jade bangles are not only a very popular bracelet style, but natural jadeite jade bangles have been given as gifts and worn for the protection of the wearer from harm, evil spirits and negative energy. It is believed that if the bangle breaks in a fall or accident, it protected the wearer from harm. Jade is a traditional gift and one that is perfect as an heirloom piece to be passed down for generations.
The most important information when choosing a one-piece jade bangle, whether it is a traditional cylindrical bangle style, half round (flat inside) or carved styles, is the size that will fit you. This means the inside diameter size of the bangle that will fit over your hand and knuckles. We want the bangle to just fit over our hand so that it is not too large on one's wrist.

JADE BANGLE SIZING (HOW TO SIZE YOUR WRIST)
BANGLE SIZING INSTRUCTIONS:
Below are bangle sizing instrcutions if you want to try to size yourself. You can always visit your local jewelry store and ask to be sized for a bangle.
We measure our solid, continuous jade bangles by the inside diameter in millimeters. This is the size of a solid one-piece bangle that will slide over your hand/knuckles.
To find out what size bangle will slide over your hand/knuckles, first collapse your hand/knuckles as best you can, as shown in the photo above. Please use a flexible measuring tape, ribbon, or strip of paper. Wrap it snugly around your hand/knuckles at the widest point, as show in the image below.
Then measure the string/paper that went around your hand with an inch ruler. This is the circumference of your hand. Please take this inch measurement and multiply by 8. This is the inside diameter in millimeters of the bangle you need.
If your size falls in the middle, please round up rather than down to ensure the bangle fits over your hand.
NOTE: Please consider the width of the bangle, as you may need a little larger bangle size for wider style bangles.
