Sleek and sophisticated, a diamond tennis bracelet is an easy to wear piece designed to be worn on a regular basis. Whether you are going to a cocktail party, the office or the gym, the versatile tennis bracelet is an excellent choice. Appropriate bracelet fit is important for both comfort and style. As an expert in creating stunning customized diamond tennis bracelets, Anjolee presents this tennis bracelet buying guide to help ensure a properly sized bracelet.
Measuring Your Wrist
Before purchasing your fabulous diamond tennis bracelet, it is recommended that you measure your wrist for the right fit. The most straightforward way to do this is to use a flexible fabric measuring tape; however, not everyone has one on hand. You can also use a string or a plain strip of paper. Wrap your measuring tool lightly around your wrist, just below the wrist bone where you would normally wear a bracelet. Measure the paper or string with a ruler to get your wrist size. To determine your perfect bracelet size, add a half inch to your measurement. If your wrist measured at 6.5”, add a half to a full inch to get a comfortable bracelet length (7” or 7.5”).
A diamond tennis bracelet should fit just loose enough so that there is movement, but not so loose that it can slip off of your hand. Stand up straight with your arms at your side. A tennis bracelet should have a flirty and casual fit that dangles from your wrist making the endless line of glittering diamonds look graceful and alluring. Anjolee’s gorgeous Vintage Marquise Center Diamond Bracelet is a great example of an eye catching diamond tennis bracelet that drips elegantly from your wrist. You should be able to easily slip one to two fingers between the bracelet and your wrist. If a bracelet is too tight, it can cause stress and may break or cause strain to your wrist.
Giving A Gift
When it comes to giving jewelry as a gift, some pieces are easier than others. Necklaces and earrings are generally a one size fits all. Ring sizing can be difficult because of the range of sizes and different fingers to choose from. Diamond tennis bracelets fall in the middle and are actually easier to estimate a length than you might think. The most common bracelet sizes for women are 7” or 7.5”, so use that as a starting point and adjust up or down by a half inch to an inch for larger or smaller wrists. If you still have concerns about buying the right size, keep in mind that certain styles of diamond tennis bracelets can be tightened. For example, the charming Flower Cluster Link Diamond Bracelet features a repeating pattern of dazzling diamond links. One or two of these links could easily be removed to shorten the length of the bracelet.
Your loved one doesn’t have to be a tennis player to enjoy the sheer luxury of owning a shimmering diamond tennis bracelet. Perfect for women of all ages, these timeless wrist adornments make a wonderful gift for mothers, grandmothers, daughters and sisters. Consider a sparkling diamond tennis bracelet for a special anniversary, birthday or “just because”. Make your proposal even more memorable by presenting a show stopping diamond tennis bracelet that matches her beautiful new engagement ring.
Thickness and Pattern
Keep in mind, not only the length of the diamond tennis bracelet, but the thickness and size of the pattern in the bracelet. Women with slender arms and small wrists look best in thin, dainty styles with smaller diamonds similar to the classic tennis bracelet style. Consider the enchanting Fleur Link Diamond Bracelet in a romantic 14k or 18k rose gold or feminine 14k or 18k white gold. Women with larger wrists can handle a more bold and blingy style of diamond tennis bracelet. The hypnotizing Dual Marquise Link Diamond Bracelet is a more exotic and unforgettable piece of jewelry with its dynamic shapes and pattern. To create a even bolder statement, choose to have your crystalline diamonds set into a glamorous 14k or 18k yellow gold setting.
