Oh, how I envy women with big hands and long limbs that extend ad infinitum! Bangles look so divine on them! Me, I’ve got little hands connected to tiny wrists that get swallowed up by larger bangles that fit other women so well. Put large round bangles on me and you might as well call me T-Rex. Since persistence is a virtue (don’t tell your stalker), I continue to plug away experimenting with various acoutrements for my less than sturdy limbs. The solutions:
1. Wear dainty bracelets that can be adjusted for size.

2. If dainty is not your cup of vodka, then you can get the look of cuffs by stacking a selection of smaller, thinner bracelets together.
3. Or, wear size-adjustable cuffs OVER your sleeves, as I do. The sleeves elongate the arm while giving your wrist some bulk. It’s a revelation.

4. When in doubt, diamond tennis bracelet. No one ever said, “oh those diamonds look terrible on her!” unless they were positively green with envy. Tennis bracelets are versatile. You can wear them alone or stack them. Have your jeweler size the bracelet for your wrist upon purchase. Don’t worry about the diamonds that will be left over, you can turn them into earrings.
