How to Measure for your Whenever Jewelry Bracelet or Necklace
FIRST OF ALL, WHAT IS WHENEVER JEWELRY VS. FOREVER JEWELRY?
Let’s get some quick and dirty definitions out of the way. We, at Brave Daughters have two jewelry offerings (at the moment) Forever Jewelry and Whenever Jewelry. What is the difference and why do we think we are so cute?
Forever Jewelry: 14kt gold chains and gemstones that are welded around your body at our studio, pop-up or private event. You can create any combination of looks from one of our 6 chains and 6 gemstones for a design that is completely personal and unique to you. It’s claspless, painless and forever. We like to think of this jewelry as a great opportunity to celebrate an accomplishment or milestone in life as a personal reminder or with a group of buddies. Check out some examples of Forever Jewelry designs here.
Whenever Jewelry: Same 14kt gold chains and gemstones as above, but removable. Think post earrings, finger rings, and clasped bracelets and necklaces. You can create you own personalized design on our website and have it shipped right to your house. Each piece is hand-made to your design specifications so please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery.
STEP 1: GATHER YOUR MATERIALS.
STEP 2: MEASURE AROUND YOUR WRIST OR NECK WITH THE STRING
This is where you get to create your own unique length, a service which is not often offered with most other fine jewelry designs, and part of the reason why we think we are so cute. You will be able to get your necklace or bracelet to perfectly nest in with your other jewelry for a magically collected look. Make sure to measure your string while wearing your other jewelry to get the length exactly right.
STEP 3: ONCE YOU HAVE THE EXACT RIGHT LENGTH, BRING THE STRING OVER TO THE RULER AND ROUND UP TO THE NEAREST INCH.
We create our necklaces and bracelets in 1” increments. Bracelets measure 6”, 7’ or 8” and necklaces 14”, 15”, 16”, 17”, or 18”. You’ll want to round up to the nearest inch and then retry the string around your wrist or neck. You might find it’s too long. In that case, remove an inch and retry. If you want your bracelet or necklace to be in between sizes, you will purchase the size up and make a special note in your purchase of exactly how long you want it.
STEP 4: YOU ARE READY TO PURCHASE!
Choose your length, chain style and gemstone (or no gemstone/plain chain) on our website. Make any special requests in the notes and we will have your custom jewelry piece out to you within 4 weeks! These make great gifts, for others and yourself ;)
