Jewelry Sizes

Here are some standard sizes for beaded jewelry:

Women's bracelet sizes:

Most common:  7 inch length, clasp included
Averages:  6.5 - 8 inch length, clasp included
Sizes you will come across:  5 - 10 inches, including clasp

I am actually a 5.5 inch, which is really small.  If you are making bracelets to sell, 7 inches would be the common length you should go for.  If you really want to make your bracelets cover a large audience, I came up with standard size extra-small to extra-extra-large lengths:

Xtra Small:  5 inch length including clasp (less common)
Small: 6 inch length including clasp (sorta common, can be common for juniors)
Medium: 7.25  inch length including clasp (common)
Large: 8.5 inch length including clasp (common)
Xtra Large:  9.25 inch length including clasp (sorta common)
XX Large:  10 inch length including clasp (less common)

Men's bracelet sizes:

Most common:  8 inches including clasp
Averages:  8 - inch length including clasp
Sizes you will come across:  7.5 - 10.5 including clasp

If you are making bracelets to sell, 8 inches would be the common length for men, including the clasp.  Here is my list for men's bracelet sizes to cover a larger customer base:

Small:  7.5 inch length including clasp (less common)
Medium:  8 inch length including clasp (common)
Large:  8.75 inch length including clasp (common)
Xtra Large:  9.5 inch length including clasp (sorta common)

Women's Ankle Bracelet Sizes:

Most common:  9 inches including clasp
Averages:  9-10 inches including clasp
