Sizing a Cartier Love bracelet can be a little bit tricky, because their iconic design not only makes them stand apart from most other bracelets, it also makes them fit differently than most other bracelets! As a result of this unique shape, when people start shopping around for a Love bracelet, one of the first questions that inevitably comes up is "How should a Cartier Love bracelet fit?" Luckily for all of us, Cartier itself has released a precise answer to this common question.
The first step to sizing any bracelet is of course measuring the wrist you plan to wear it on, and Love bracelets are no exception. You can wrap standard measuring tape around your wrist to get a precise figure, or calculate it in reverse by finding a bracelet that fits you perfectly and measuring its length across. Now, simply add 1.5cm to that number and you'll have the size number which Cartier recommends you wear (for instance, a 15.5cm wrist + 1.5cm = a size 17 bracelet). If you prefer a tighter fit, you can simply add 1cm instead of 1.5cm, while if you prefer a looser fit, 2cm may be more appropriate. Whatever your particular preferences may be, this formula is a sure-fire way to make sure you choose a Cartier Love bracelet that fits you just right!
