Should I buy a little larger bracelet if using Dione beads? I'm wondering if the beads take up room and a 7" wrist might really take an 8" bracelet. Thanks,

Large diameter beads can cause the need for increasing the chain length needed for a bracelet. A 7-inch wrist will do well with an additional 1/2 inch, so a 7-1/2 inch finished chain should be a good fit.

Finished snake and caprice chain come in lengths from 7-1/2 inch to 8-1/2 inch. There are longer chain lengths that can be cut to accommodate other chain sizes for a customized DioneĀ® bead bracelet.

For a useful formula, see the previous Ask the Experts question in the resources below.
