What Size for a Gold Bracelet?

Here at Chain Me Up, our sterling silver and gold bracelets are made to any length you desire. As chains are made of links, they cannot normally be made to an exact length like a piece of string could be. Normally they will however, be within about 5mm of the length you select.
With consideration to the length of your bracelet, we generally recommend adding about 2 or 3 centimetres to your wrist measurement. How much extra will determine how far onto your hand the bracelet will fall. Smaller builds may prefer just 1.5 or 2 centimetres, larger builds may prefer adding 3 centimetres. If you are unsure, go longer; it is much easier for a jeweller to remove an extra link or two, than it is to find an extra matching link.

Hello, I'm Sebastian Mitchell from boy beads and today I want to talk about bracelet sizing. Typically we recommend that you add half an inch to your wrist size for the appropriate bracelet size. So that means that if your wrist is 7 inches, your bracelet size would be 7 and a half inches, if your wrist is 8 inches, your bracelet size would be 8 and a half inches and typically the average male size is 7 and a half inches. So that's our most popular bracelet size that we sell.

Today I want to actually show you my wrist and my sizing and I'll show you how different size bracelets will fit on my wrist, so that will help you to know what size you need to purchase. What I have is a standard tape measure and I'm going to put it around my wrist in the area that I would typically wear a bracelet, which would be at the very front of my wrist. So I wrap it around and I stop the tape at the point where the two ends meet, so I'm going to try to put this closer so you can see that my wrist is just a little bit shy of 7 inches. So what we want to do is to size up to seven and a half inches for a bracelet. If I made it to 7 inches exactly it would be a little bit too tight and I like to show you how a bracelet looks on your wrist if it's too tight.

I'll start with this Picasso Jasper bracelet, this bracelet is exactly 7 inches, so what that means is that this would fit someone with the wrist that’s six and a half inches. But I'm going to try it out anyway so you see what I mean by the sizing. Can you see that there’s strain right here? You can see the string, if you're wearing a bracelet and the string is visible on your wrist or on your arm, that means that it's too small. I can move my arm up and down I can shake my arm the bracelet does not move. This is too tight for my wrist, what I need to do is size up to a seven and a half inch and that would be my size.

If it's too tight it's more prone to popping, if it's too large then the bracelet is more prone to snagging on or catching on to things around it and it could also pop and break. This is an example of a bracelet that's eight inches, eight inches is too large for my wrist so, it will fall, it will fall down, it will go all the way down even farther if I didn't have on this watch. So eight inches is too large for me and you can see the extra space here. This could catch on to something as I'm going about my daily routine and it could snag and pop which we don't want. Now I'm going to try on sizes that are seven and a half, so these are exactly my size.


This one goes over the hand it moves a little bit on my wrist, but not a whole lot, it just goes only about two inches. This is my size, seven and a half inches, this one also fits perfectly. If you don't have a measuring tape at home you could use anything that's flexible. I have right here a receipt, so you can take a piece of receipt paper, fold it in half, you'll also need a standard ruler. This is a standard 12 inch ruler, so take the tape the paper I’m sorry, and use it just as you would a tape measure. You stop it where the ends meet and I’m having a little bit of trouble with this, but okay, so I stop it here where the ends meet. I will mark this point with my finger, so this mark, this is where it stopped and then I will get my ruler and I will measure the point where I stopped and it's still the exact same point. Just a little bit before seven, so that lets you know that your wrist size is right above seven and right below seven and that your bracelet size would be seven and a half. I hope that this tutorial can help someone, if you do have any questions please click the link below to send me an email. Thank you everyone, happy to help.

Selection of Gold Chains - Fraser Ross - Chain Me Up

Fraser Ross started out as a simple online retailer that stocked a small selection of gold chains. As you can see we’ve definitely come a long way since then! We now offer hundreds and thousands of different designs of gold and silver chains, charms and other beautiful pieces; and we continue to add more and more stunning pieces every day.


The challenge Ross Fraser, the founder of Chain Me Up and Fraser Ross faced was offering affordable yet high quality jewellery to family and friends. After the request came flooding in, he could barely keep up with demand and then decided that he would begin his own precious metal company, and this birthed Chain Me Up. Chain Me Up was later rebranded as Fraser Ross in 2010.


With a new name and a fresh start, the website received a makeover as well. It's now the glimmering, shining showcase you see today. We've divided each of our categories up into easy-to-digest sections. By setting aside a special section for men in each of our jewellery types, male fans of Fraser Ross can easily pick out a chain suited to them. On the other hand, our charm bracelets section has been a hit because it makes it a simple task to pick a chain that will fit charms on it.


Security was also a rising concern for the company’s website, although no incidents had occurred where a customer’s information was at risk, we wanted it to stay that way and increase our security for the comfort of both the customer and staff at Fraser Ross. After all, purchases regarding jewellery are something to be taken seriously, it’s precious metal we’re talking about here! So we upgraded our website to have an EV (extended validation) SSL site certificate (the little green padlock in your search bar that indicates a site is safe to purchase from). Our site security is the best that money can buy and our customers have greatly appreciated the added security.

We also offer a 7-day money back guarantee for all of our customers. If you aren’t 100% happy with any purchase you make through Fraser Ross or want to exchange it for something else, we will do it, no questions asked! Along with our guarantee, we offer a handy sizing chart to help you figure out which size bracelet chain to pick because playing a guessing game with chain lengths can just be annoying! But you don’t have to worry about that here!  


If you love precious metal jewellery and want a safe place to shop it online, join us at Fraser Ross and browse thousands of designs. We’ll be waiting! Check out all our alphabet charms in silver and gold at Chain Me Up.

Australian Made Gold Chains - Chain Me Up - Fraser Ross

The quality and craftsmanship of Australian Made gold chains rivals every country in the world for that top spot in the jewellery market. It’s not just Aussie pride talking, this is a well known fact among the jewellery world. So what is it exactly that makes the chains at Fraser Ross the best of the best? We’re so glad you asked!

The Real Deal : Every jewellery dealer and jeweller make a huge fuss about having the highest quality chains and jewellery but the harsh truth of the matter is that many companies put fillers and inferior metals such as pewter into their precious metal jewellery. At Fraser Ross we pride ourselves on only selling the best quality chains made from Australian precious metals in our gold chains and every single piece of jewellery we sell, you won’t find any fillers here!

Great Prices : Paying top dollar for precious metal chains and jewellery can sometimes trick you into thinking you’re getting your money’s worth and the best quality that there is available, but that’s not completely true. Did you know that you can find high quality precious metal jewellery for a fraction of the price offered at those jewellery retail giants? Buyers often confuse the words affordable and cheap, so it can be a shock when seeing the price tag on our jewellery! After working in the jewellery industry for the good part of the last decade, Ross Fraser, the owner of Fraser Ross (also known as Chain Me Up), has found a way to sell the same high quality precious metal, yet affordable (not to be confused with cheap) jewellery that you would see lining the windows of upmarket jewellery stores. Quality is never sacrificed at Fraser Ross.

No-Hassle Returns : We understand how sometimes returning goods can be more hassle than they’re worth at times, especially when you purchase something and it isn’t quite what you wanted. When you purchase jewellery at Fraser Ross, you have 7 days to return your goods with our 7 day money back guarantee. No strings attached returns, without the interrogative questions. The chain you’ve purchased isn’t quite the fit you wanted? Found something else amidst our collection that you’d prefer? Return it to us and we’ll refund you without fees or question.

We would love to see you swing by our online store to fulfil all of your precious metal jewellery needs! If you have any questions or want to know more about us, try our callback service! It’s free of charge and we’re available 8am to 8pm seven days a week.

Jewellery Store Online | chain-me-up.com.au | Jewellery Shop

If you've ever been to a jewellery store online, especially one that's selling precious metal jewellery for thousands of dollars, you've most likely panicked and conjured images in your head of stolen credit cards and jewellery lost in the mail. We don't blame you – we'd be scared too if we were shopping at some of those shady retailers.

Don't worry! There's an online jewellery store that won't scam you, steal your money, or lose your purchase in the mail. Fraser Ross has built a reliable and trustworthy business right here in Australia that has grown to incredible heights since its founding. That's because we've done business the right way. Let us show you how.



Rock Solid Website Protection

Fraser Ross uses what's called an EV SSL site certificate. Most secure websites only have the SSL portion of this, but we've stepped up our security by adding on the EV (which stands for Extended Validation), giving our site the highest security money can buy. We never even see your credit card information when you use one. Fraser Ross also offers payments through Paypal, cheque/money order, or Direct Deposit.

Orders Are Insured

Getting your order to you safe and sound is our priority. That's the main reason we've included free shipping and package insurance for your order to give you that extra piece of mind. Should your order be delayed for more than 21 days after purchasing, you have the option to wait, change your order or get a full refund. We want you to be completely satisfied with your order and with our service. That's why we offer a seven day moneyback guarantee on all orders, no questions asked.

Knowledgeable Customer Service

There's nothing worse than having a problem with your order and calling up customer service, only to find that they don't know anything about, well... anything. They're supposed to be the ones that can help you solve your problems, right? So why is it that many companies don't ensure their representatives are properly trained and motivated? Fraser Ross representatives will never let you down. They're the trained professionals that should be on the line at all of these other call centers, but it appears we've stolen all the good ones and kept them for ourselves.


As they say, seeing is believing, so hop on over to our online jewellery shop to browse our fine selection of genuine precious metal jewellery. Thank you for shopping with Fraser Ross.

We have a huge range of white gold bracelets in our store.
