Jewelry Measuring Guide

Discover the ideal fit for your Ayebea's Sankofa Marketplace jewelry with our simple measuring guide. Whether it's bracelets or necklaces, ensure your accessories are perfect for you.

  • Measure your wrist circumference with a flexible tape measure.
  • Add 0.5 to 1 inch for a comfortable fit, or adjust based on your preference for a snug or looser feel.

Determine your desired necklace length based on your style:

  • Choker (14-16 inches): Sits closely around the neck.
  • Princess (18 inches): Falls just below the throat.
  • Matinee (20-24 inches): Rests at the collarbone or slightly below.
  • Factor in the neckline of your outfits when choosing necklace length. Different styles pair well with specific lengths.
  • If you prefer a looser fit or plan to layer your necklaces, consider adding an extra inch or two to your measurement.
  • Use a string to mimic the length and style you desire before committing to a specific size.
  • If you plan to wear a pendant, factor in its size and placement when selecting the necklace length.

Note: This is the traditional and authentic way of wearing waist beads in Ghana. Remember, permanent doesn't mean that the waist bead is irremovable.
