Three different styles of bangle feature throughout Sheila's collections: closed bangles, hinged bangles and and torque bangles. Use the table below to help you select the size of bangle best suited to your measurements.
If you have an exact measurement for your hand or wrist, please include this in the 'Special Instructions' box in your shopping bag, before checking out. Our workshop can then ensure they make your bangle to the best size for you.

Closed Bangles: How to measure
When choosing a closed bangle, you need to measure the widest part of your hand rather than simply measuring your wrist. To do this, fold your thumb in towards your palm and towards your little finger, touching its tip if possible, and keeping your other fingers straight. This folds your hand into as small a shape as possible.
To measure the widest part of your hand, you should now run a measuring tape over—or close to—the lower knuckles of your thumb and fingers.
You can then refer to our sizing table to select the size of bangle you need. We also advise you to include your measurement in the 'Special Instructions' box in your shopping bag, before checking out.
Hinged & Torque Bangles: How to measure
Our hinged bangles and torque bangles are designed to fit closer to your wrist than a classic closed bangle. To get an idea of the size that will fit you best, you need to measure snugly around your wrist. Then simply refer to our sizing table to find your bangle size.
If your wrist measurement is at the top of a size range, we recommend that you select the next size up.
Adding Tension to Hinged Bangles
Our hinged bangles fasten securely due to tension in the bangle's design. Gently squeezing together the bangle allows you to fasten and unfasten the bangle's hook.
This tension can reduce over time, which you will notice if it becomes easier to clip and unclip your bangle. It's very easy to fix this, however, by gently pulling apart the bangle just enough to add back some tension. You can see this being done in the following short video. This will not damage the bangle if done gently, but please get in touch if you've got any concerns.
