Christmas 2018 Bangle Buying Guide

It’s coming to that time of year where the pressure is on to buy the perfect gift for your loved one! We have a lovely wide variety of different bangle styles such as torques, cuffs and bangles to suit all budgets. But which style do you pick? And what size do you need!?  Hopefully, I can explain and help you choose the perfect gift for your loved one for Christmas 2018!

 

Which Bangle Size?

Ok, let’s start with the bangle size. All of our bangles have a wealth of information including sizing within the individual bangle page. Either within the product description or within the product specification section, you will see the size of the bangle and is measured using its internal diameter, all internal diameters are measured in mm.

In an ideal world, the person you are buying for would already have a bangle that fits them well and you would have access to this bangle. If you have access to this bangle, all you would need to do is place a ruler across the middle of the bangle and measure internally the diameter from one side to the other and this would give you their bangle size: Here is a link with an image demonstrating how we measure our bangles:

As your bangle is probably going to be a gift and usually a surprise for your loved one, you may well have to take a guess at the bangle size you need to buy.

A regular size bangle measure 63mm-65mm this is the size that fits the majority of our customers and is a very good starting point if you are buying a gift for someone and you do not know their bangle size. The vast majority of fixed size bangles sold in the UK fall within this size range.

We also offer a range of XS, S, L and XL bangles, perfect for small and large wrists, click on the following links for further information:

Another safe option if buying a Christmas present for someone and you have absolutely no idea of their wrist size, is to consider purchasing a Torque or Cuff style bangle.  These are open bangles and therefore as they don’t need to go over the hand, they are the perfect size for most ladies wrists, our toques and cuffs are found here:

But let is reassure you, if you were to purchase a bangle from us and you have guessed the incorrect size, we are more than happy to exchange your bangle for a different size if available, or for a different style or a refund – please see our terms and conditions.

 

Quality Guarantee

All of our bangles are hallmarked 925 sterling silver.  This means that 92.5% of the bangle is made of pure silver and the remaining 7.5% is made of other metals, this is usually copper. The hallmark is a legal requirement and a guarantee that the bangle has been tested at a British Assay Office and is 92.5% pure silver. The quality of a hallmarked 925 sterling silver bangles is better than a bangle which is silver plated which has virtually no value as a precious metal.

We are more than happy to offer you an extended returns policy until Monday 14th January 2019.  We completely understand that a lot of people like to purchase Christmas gifts early and therefore need to be able to exchange or return the bangle after Christmas if the bangle is the wrong size or style. Here is a link to our returns policy:
