The key to wearing glass bangles is to get the correct size. Wearing the proper bangle size will lead to less breakage and a better look.
If you are new to Indian glass bracelets, you should expect a bit of breakage while you get used to them. No worries! This is perfectly normal and why you get so many bangles in a set!
We offer three different sizes, 2.6 Small, 2.10 Medium/Large (the most popular), and 2.12 Extra Large
There are four different ways to find the correct bangle size
They are listed below from most to least accurate.
The best way to endure a perfect fit it to try on actual glass bangles. We offer a Glass Bangle Sizing Kit specifically for this purpose.
