Here's my IDJ bracelet, 10 pointers. I didn't read all the posts, but I suggest you get quotes from IDJ, their prices are Very good.

It's 6.21 carats, but it is a 6 1/2 inch bracelet. Definitely get a bracelet that fits your small wrist, it sits better, doesn't shift up and down as much, and looks more elegant on the wrist. IDJ can order a custom one for your size, and I picked this bracelet because the cut on the diamonds is spectacular. I've had other bracelets and ended up not wearing them because of small diamonds, poor cut, or too much metal in the setting. This is a very low profile setting and looks great.

For perspective, I'm a size 6 person, my ring size is 7, and the 10 pointers look impressive but graceful on my frame. At least I think so. :bigsmile:

Hope that helps.

Hi!
I'd like to add pictures of my 20 points tennis bracelet. 30 diamonds, totalling 6 carats. I usually wear it on my right wrist. But also added a picture which i had just taken to show the bracelet on my left wrist together with my watch. :shifty:

Here's my 4.27 cttw semi-bezel. I pretty much wear this one every day. If I had to do it over again I might get slightly larger stones. :naughty:

I have a 5 inch size wrist and a 6 carat tennis bracelet. Actually 6 carats before it was sized to fit my wrist. I don't have a picture and it's currently in the safety deposit box. I never felt it looked too large on my wrist but seldom wore it due to it constantly snagging my clothes. Also consider the bracelet stacking and size of watches most women wear now. I love how the bracelet looks on your wrist.
Thank you Callie. I am actually quite focused on how it looks with a watch, or other jewelry as I examine these pictures. It does make a big difference in the look as a whole. If you ever get a picture of yours, which I bet is gorgeous, please post. :lickout:

Mcblohe, that bracelet is so very lovely. :drool: I mean LOVELY on you and with your watch. I especially love the fit. I think I'm realizing that the fit of a bracelet has a huge impact on the look as a whole. I think I tend to like it to fit very closely, just like yours. Oh dear. I was thinking 10 pointers, but your 20 pointer looks amazing!!

Thank you M2B. I was looking through your threads and I thought you had one too. You have the bangle, which is really gorgeous. I played around with the idea, but since I"m at a desk, I really would bang it too much. Hope you're doing well. Great to hear from you. :wavey:

LLJsmom--your hands look quite a bit younger than mine, & I was thinking about your bracelet decision last night. As we age, I'm in my mid 50's, as you know, our body changes. I too had very small wrists when I was younger--but now, not nearly as small. So when you do finally decide & order, maybe order it with an additional few links/diamonds, but have those few put aside for use later on in life.

As for diamond size, I bet it would depend on the length needed--reverse engineer the size of the links/diamonds re the length needed. Although if you know now what size of diamond you prefer right now, then its easy to figure from there. If for example, you like 18 pointers, & you want a 7 inch (half an inch to put aside for later in life) then whatever it takes to make that 7 inch bracelet w/ 18 pointers.

As for price fluctuations, that is outside of my knowledge box--I would not have any valuable input as far as pricing variations go....

Take a look at mcblohe's bracelet, gorgeous by the way! :love: :love: her's are 20 pt stones, mine were 18, & her stones look huge compared to mine! Such a decision LLJsmom--what fun! Cant wait to see what you decide! I love my WF bracelet!
Hi sarahb, My wrist is not much younger. I'm in my mid-40s. I think that ordering extra is the best advice ever. I realize that I love the look of it fitting very closely, so I should keep some extra around in case I need it later. I'm also going to measure my mom's wrist to see if hers is much bigger than mine. Yes, mcblohe's is very beautiful. I would LOVE one like hers. Because of that gorgeous pic, I'm going to ask about 20 pointers, but that may be a bit out of my range. :)

Thanks Catmom. I think that is great advice, and a reality for me too. I do love the look of a dainty one, but I can totally see myself regretting not going bigger. :roll:

The half bezel is really pretty too. And it offers all that peace of mind wearing it daily. Hmmm, will have to consider the bezels too... :think:

A diamond line bracelet is on my short list currently. But in the meantime, I love looking at all of the gorgeous bracelets on this thread! :cheeky:

Thanks sarahb, princessfeedme and LLJsmom for your lovely compliments! :appl:

princessfeedme, i love my vintage AP too :love:
i don't wear anything else with my watch as I'm afraid I may scratch it. So i only wore it together for the photo, to show perspective of the bracelet with a watch :)

I've attached more real life perspective of my bracelet. I had a 4 pts, then a 10 pts, and now this 20 pts bracelet. I find the size ok and not too blingy :lol: I'm comfortable with wearing this everyday and have received lots of compliments on it, much more than other pieces of jewellery i've worn. The way the stones are set further apart, means I don't need too many stones, and only 30 diamonds. It's a 6 inch bracelet.

LLJsmom, go as big as you can, you won't regret it ! :drool:
I'm in my 40s too and will foresee having to lengthen it as i grow 'bigger'!

Here are a couple pics I just snapped of mine. 5.4ctw (I think 12 pointers each), three prong setting by IDJ. I also like to wear my bracelet stacked with my watch, mainly because I wear my watch on my non-dominant hand and I'm always afraid I'll scratch the diamonds or ruin the setting on my right arm since I'm harder on that arm.

Also, FWIW, I got this bracelet last year and I've been emailing IDJ about a possible upgrade. I feel like this is a great everyday size (but still plenty blingy), but I want something with stones more in the 18-20 point range if I can swing it.

Hi - here are a couple of quick iphone pics snapped on my of mine: 5ct (12pointers each) in a 3 prong setting from IDJ. It's not very sunny here at the moment, but when the sun does come out, it's blinding. I wear it every day. No snagging, no issues. Really happy with it. Luann is a gem :)

Mustangsally (loveyourname!) thanks for the pictures. The 12 pointers look really great. I would be lucky to get one. I love that you can see each stone separately. Out of curiosity, how many inches is it and how many stones are there, if you don't mind checking.

Hi LLJsmom - I had a quick check. There are 44 stones on my bracelet and the whole thing including clasp is just under 7.5 inches. I'm sure if that's too big for your wrist then IDJ could shorten it or make a shorter one for you. Here's a quick snap to show the length - hope that helps

Thanks Sally , helps a lot. I can do the division and guess how many stones I would need for my wrist.

Motownmama, thanks so much. Your stones look huge. Do you know the number of stones and the size of your wrist? How many points are each stone? So great to hear you wear it everyday. :)

There are 54 stones and each stone is .05ct - my wrist is 6.5".

My 4 year old son disagrees with the measurement and says my wrist is 49 pounds. :lol:

LLJsmom, Just a few more things to think about. Have you suffered from DSS with your engagement ring? If so, you may want to go as large as you can afford. After I had my bracelet for about a year I started thinking about a larger bracket. I'm in my fifties and I have only gotten worse the older I get as far as DSS goes. I wish someone would come up for a cure for DSS. : :doh:

My wrist size has stayed the same and didn't get any larger as I aged. But I also weigh what I did when I was in high school.

I agree about DSS. Started out with .16s but upgraded to .33s with Wink's bracelet.

Will do my best! I'm waiting to see what stones they can bring in. I've had a rough week and this would definitely make it much better!

LLJsmom, I can't wait to see what you decide to go with. Whatever you decide I'm sure it will be beautiful on you.

Cflutist, i would have sized up if I could have. Can see that you understand my DSS. :wavey:
Glad I'm not the only one who suffers from this terrible, terrible disease.

Don't laugh (ok, go ahead) as these diamond melee bracelets are like premies compared to the beauties everyone else has. But I change up my jewelry daily so it was hard to justify a big spend. In fact, I wasn't looking for a tennis bracelet because I thought the diamonds had to be a certain size to make a statement but these changed my mind.

I do love the versatility of mixing and matching with other bracelets, wearing together, or stand alone. I can also up-size/downsize depending on whatever else I am wearing that day. I tend to wear bling-ier pieces in the office and can go the other extreme to complete minimalist on weekends.

While I skimped on size, I did go for quality though. I got to borrow these to comparison shop. Not great a picture taking but these are so sparkly that they can hold up to my bling-ier pieces but small enough not to overwhelm smaller pieces.

18kt gold, 7 inch (my wrist is 6.5), about 1.3 ctw each.

My friend who has a tiny wrist wants the one that isn't the tennis style but she is a minimalist, although VERY picky on quality, when it comes to jewelry.
