I’m in the same boat as you! Can’t wait to hear what you decide!

I have relatively small wrists as well how do you all size your tennis bracelets? Is there a certain “drop” that most prefer?

I have various bracelets already, some are longer than the others, I just find one with the length that I like, measure it, and that's it.

It does depends how one likes to wear their bracelets though, some prefer a tighter fit, whereas some prefer a looser fit.

Try tying thicker strings of different lengths around your wrist to determine if you would like to wear it loose or tight. One of those adjustable braided friendship bracelet would be ideal, being cheap and cheerful.

Wanted to give my two cents on the tennis bracelet option since that’s what I just did! My wrists are similar in size to yours and I bought a 4ct bracelet with 7 pt diamonds. I had 7 links removed and used them in a station bracelet.

I regret not making the bracelet tighter and may remove more links eventually. I find it slips to the meat of my hand too much which makes me think about it catching on stuff. I second the reco to try out in CZ first - and try different lengths. The long tennis bracelet is very elegant but IMO not practical.

Pavoli on Amazon has beautiful dupes for about $12

I am considering a bracelet in 2021... I found a CZ tennis bracelet, but I can’t seem to find a CZ bangle... could you help me with a link? I would be able to get a larger diamonds for the carat weight with a bangle, of course, so that is appealing to me!

I reset my tennis bracelet into 2 bangles a few years ago. I’m sorry I did it. They are not comfortable while using the computer. I think you would get much more wear from a bracelet as you can dress it up or down.

I ended up going with 6.5”. Hopefully, it was the right decision!

I was going to say that 1" more than wrist size is my personal preference for tennis bracelets and chain bracelets. My wrist is 6", so I can usually wear the standard 7" bracelets. I think you made a good choice for length, @boxbits !

Thank you @diamondseeker2006! I always value your input.

For those of you who have worked with IDJ for tennis bracelets, do you think I need to specify that I want smooth prongs so that they do not catch on clothing? I only ask bc I’ve seen that these requests have been made in previous posts (not necessarily to IDJ).

In any event, production time is 3-4 weeks. Although I haven’t any place to go, I am so looking forward to receiving my new bracelet!
