Sizing

Bracelets

When deciding on what size to get for your new Rico Designs purchase it is important to remember that some bracelets are designed to have a more snug fit while others are designed to hang more loosely around your wrist. Therefore it is important to check in the individual items description for recommended fitting. (i.e. if size should run snug or loose).

Snug Fit Bracelet Sizing Table

Snug Fit Bracelets: Designed to be a snug fit, you should be able to fit your finger between the bracelet and your skin when wearing. Check sizing chart and use a string to find your exact measurement.

Wraps

Silver Triple Wraps

Wraps are great because they are multi purpose. If you get the right size they can be worn as a triple wrap bracelet, a double wrap anklet of a single necklace. The process for measuring is the same as bracelets, except this time you simply wrap the string around your wrist 3 times. Alternatively you can figure out your single wrist measurement then compare to the sizing chart.

Wraps can be worn snug fit or looser it is up to you and what individual look you are going for.

Anklets

SIZING YOUR RICO DESIGNS ANKLETS

There are 2 types of Rico Designs anklet,. singles and wraps. Singles can be designed to have a 1-3 layer look but they all wrap around once and connect via a clasp. Wraps can wrap around 2 times and connect via a clasp. This wrap anklets can also be worn as a triple wrap bracelet. Please see triple wraps sizing chart for sizing of anklet wraps. Anklet sizing comes down to individual preference but as a guide I wear mine sitting just under the ankle bone and sizing will be given to sit there. So if you would like it to sit higher then please opt for a smaller size.

Note if you would like to custom design an anklet to suit you then please contact Richelle at info@ricodesigns.com.au

Connections

Various Rico Designs Connection Styles

Your Rico Designs jewels can come in 5 different connecting styles.

Toggle Clasp: I usually use toggle clasps on loose fitting bracelets. A toggle clasps has two sections: the “T” part and the “O” part. The “T” is inserted into the “O” when connecting the two ends of a piece of jewellery together.

S Hook Clasp: I usually use this type of connection in smaller more fine, snug fitting bracelets. The clasp features a striking S-shaped piece of silver, which is attached to one end of the bracelet. The opposite end of the bracelet contains a silver ring. The S-shaped piece simply hooks into the ring at other end of the bracelet.

IMPORTANT: S hooks come locked, Clasps must be opened slightly (about 1 mm) in order to slip over the loop. It is important to lock the S hook again so as the bracelet does not fall off. When opening the hook, pull the hook directly out (away from the hook) not to the side (do not twist).

Elastic: Elastic stretch bracelets are great because they are easy to slide on and off over your wrist, they are more durable in water and easy to size. Stretch bracelets are usually loose fit designs. I use strong doubled up elastic to give your bracelet extra strength. Rico Designs stretch bracelets generally come in 2 sizes small and large. Small will fit all sizes between petite and medium (up to approx. 20 cm) large will fit size about 20 cm plus.

Macramé Slider: A knotted adjustable connection. Simple extend by pulling, slip over the hand then tighten to desired fit.

Lobster Clasp: A newer Rico Designs clasp, very secure, a little more fiddley to put on and usually teamed with petite style bracelets.

Measuring

Finding the Right Bracelet Size

Wrist Measurement

You can determine your wrist size by wrapping a piece of string snugly around your wrist. Hold the string up against a ruler to get your single wrist measurement.

Add at least 1 to 1.5 cm to the single wrist measurement to figure out total length of bracelet (depending how loose you would like it to sit). Or compare your single wrist measurement to the sizing chart.

For example, my single wrist measurement is 15cm, so when choosing a snug fit bracelet I will compare to the ‘snug fit’ table and order a small. The bracelet I receive will be about 16-16.5cm.

If the bracelet I am ordering is a loose fit design, I will compare my single wrist measurement of 15cm to the ‘loose fit’ table. I fit in the Small category so the bracelet I will receive will be 17.5-18cm.
