My Pandora Bracelet Is Too Small- What’s Next?

So, we can understand the excitement that comes with buying yourself a Pandora bracelet. The worst nightmare, however, is for you to realize that your bracelet is too small.

That means you won’t get to wear and enjoy it, so what next? Not to worry, in this article, we will show you how to fix this problem as well as how to avoid it from happening again.

 

Why Your Pandora Bracelet Is Small?

When buying jewelry especially online, it is common to end up buying the wrong size, either too small or too big. The same goes for Pandora bracelets. It is not uncommon to hear a customer complaining that their Pandora bracelet is too small. So, why does this happen? What is the reason behind your bracelet being too small?

The are various reasons to explain this. The first one is that you may have made a wrong judgment about your wrist size. When buying jewelry, a common mistake most people make is eyeballing the size of their wrists and buying their bracelet based on that.

It is easy to imagine your wrists are smaller than they are. It is, therefore, important that you correctly size your wrists to get the exact and true measurements.

Another reason could be that you forgot to add the extra 1-2cm to your wrist size. This is another common mistake, many people make. The extra measurement is important because it ensures that the bracelet will be a snug fit without being too tight. It also accounts for the room that your charms will take up, which brings us to the next reason your bracelet is small.

The reason could be the choice of charms you choose to include. While the charms do not take in too much space, some charms are bulkier than others.

So, if you choose to stack up on the bulkier charms, the bracelet will end up being too small to fit despite getting the right measurement. That is why you are encouraged to also consider the type and number of charms you’ll include when picking the bracelet length.

Once you have the measurement, add 1-2cm to it and use that as your wrist size. Look at the chart to find the right size for you.

It can be difficult to enjoy wearing your Pandora bracelet when it is not the right size. A smaller size may make it hard to work around the problem, but not impossible. Luckily there is a way for you to enlarge and extend your bracelet to get the perfect fit. Below are the steps you should follow to do this:

 

Step 1: Measure your wrist.

This is important so you can know how much you need to extend your bracelet. Use a tape measure, or a string, marker, and ruler.

Measure the widest part of your wrist. Once you have your wrist size add about 0.79”. The total number should be your ideal bracelet size.

Step 2: Find an extender chain.

An extender chain is the best way to expand your bracelet when it is too small. Measure the chain to ensure it is long enough to get the needed length for the bracelet.

Also ensure that the material, color, and quality of the chain match with the bracelet, that way it will not look out of place. The extender chains come with clasps on one end.

 

Step 3: Measure the needed length of the chain.

Attach the extender’s clasp to the receiving ring of your bracelet. Now wrap the bracelet around your wrist. Attach the bracelet’s original clasp to a link on the extender chain, where you feel the bracelet fits perfectly. Mark that link.

After that take off the bracelet and cut the excess links of the extender chain from the marked link away from the clasp.

Now that you have the correct length, put the bracelet back on by attaching the extender’s clasp to the receiving ring of the bracelet and the bracelet’s claps attached to the last link of the extender.

 

Conclusion

As you’ve seen it is not difficult to adjust or enlarge a Pandora bracelet. All you need is an extender chain and then follow the three simple steps.

You can, however, avoid the hustle by getting your bracelet size right the first time.

Always remember to take accurate measurements of your wrist and add the crucial 1-2cm to it.
