How do I know my bangle size? Your bangle size has very little to do with your body size or your
wrist size. It's all about the size and flexibility of your hand. We have a few different ways to find your proper
glass bangle size. See our bangle sizing
page here or check out our video.
Are they really made of glass? Do they
break? Yes, they are really made of glass and, yes, they can and will break.
The vast majority of breakage comes from not following the
instructions for putting them on or taking them off.
Every bangle set comes with
You should also wear the proper size for as little breakage as
possible. If your bangles are too big, they will fall down too
far on your hand and get in the way.
Wearing larger groups helps prevent breakage as well. I
typically wear around 20 bangles at a time. You should wear
what works best for you, but I suggest a minimum of 8 bangles.
You need multiple bangles to distribute the vibrations that could
cause them to break when they bump something. If you try to
wear only one or two, they will most likely be broken by the end of
the day. Besides they look much more stylish in larger groups!
Some breakage is expected, after all, they are glass. It's not
too big a deal as you get these great large sets. If you break
a few bangles, just rearrange your set! Millions of women wear
glass bangles every single day!
I wear bangles every day with very little breakage. I
wear them while working on the computer, shipping, stocking product,
and all my other daily duties at the store. I may break a
bangle every month or two. That's about it.
When I was new to bangles, I broke them much more often! I
was apparently quite clumsy because I was always smashing them into
door jambs and breaking a bangle or two. After wearing them a
couple of times, that stopped! I started being careful without
even realizing it.

I want to give them as a gift.
How do I know what size to give? The 2.10 M/L size is our most popular size. About 50-55% of my
customers are this size. The 2.6 Small size is about 35-40% of my customers. The 2.12 XL size is about 10% of my customers.
Unless you'd say the recipient has very petite hands or very large
hands, you will be safe with the 2.10 M/L size. Don't worry if
you get the wrong size, they can always exchange them for the proper
How do I get rid of any excess
glitter on my bangles?
Glass bangles will typically have a fair
amount of loose glitter that will shed. After wearing them a
couple of times the excess glitter sheds away on it's own, leaving
just the glitter that is actually attached to the bangle.
If you want to help this process along, brush the bangles gently on a
pair of denim jeans to loosen and remove the excess glitter, or use a
soft brush to gently brush away the loose glitter.
If you want to make sure you've gotten it all, after brushing the
excess glitter off, use an aerosol hairspray and spray them down
letting them dry completely before putting them on.
A couple of
light coats is better than one heavy coat of spray. You can also
use clear spray paint, but the hairspray does a great job.
I don't see the color combination I need. Do you have it? Don't worry. Just because you don't see it currently listed on
the website doesn't mean we don't have it! You can either
build your own bangle set from our
Build-A-Bangle line or we can create a
custom bangle set for you. Be sure to email with notes
about what colors you want in your custom set!
Do you have glass bangles for
All of our bangles are really glass and are not appropriate for
small children. They can break and be swallowed or cut the
child. We do not carry metal or plastic Indian bangles except
for a small selection in our Orlando store.

How do I order the colors I want?
I love creating bangle sets for large
events! Most often it's for weddings, mehndi parties, or baby
what could be more fun? The easiest way to order is to order
groupings of our

for 4 bangle sets, but you get 5 bangle sets.
