To determine the right ring size for yourself, it is good to know that usually two different sizes are used for rings, namely the inner diameter or the circumference. My Bendel indicates all ring sizes on the website with an inner diameter.
Measure the inside diameter
You can measure the correct inner diameter by, for example, using a well-fitting ring that you already have. Place this ring on a ruler or a measuring tape. Make sure you measure the widest part of the ring on the inside as accurately as possible. The part that is visible on the inside of the ring shows your correct ring size in millimeters.
For this you need a piece of ribbon that you put around your finger. It is important that you do not pull the ribbon too tight, but allow it to close comfortably around your finger. Mark a line on the ribbon with a marker on both sides where the ribbon overlaps. Then measure the distance between both marks with a ruler or tape measure, so that you know the circumference of your finger.

In the overview below you can see which ring size fits which inner diameter and circumference.
Necklaces come in different shapes and sizes. The length of a chain always remains a matter of personal taste and choice. The My Bendel collection has different types of link chains. They all have one similarity, namely an adjustable closure that varies from 5 to 7 cm. This allows you to wear the necklace at different lengths.
Measure the correct chain length
Measure the length you like using a piece of string or flexible tape measure. Put the string around your neck and cut it to the desired length. Then, run the string along a measuring tape for the exact size. You could ofcourse also do this by measuring a chain that you already have.
Necklace or choker
This is a short necklace with an average length of 35 to 40 cm, so that it falls exactly (tightly) around the neck. Because you wear the necklace high around the neck, you can perfectly combine it with the other necklaces in order to achieve a beautiful layered effect.
The 'Princess' necklace is slightly longer than a choker with an average length of 40 to 45 cm. The nice thing about this necklace is that it falls perfectly into the niche between your collarbones, making it perfect for a round neck, V-neck, blouse with buttons or shirt.
The 'Matinee' necklace has an average length of 50 to 60 cm. Because the chain acutely accentuates the chest, it is ideal for creating beautiful layers. The necklace has a length that looks very good on many women, regardless of neck type.
This chain has an average length of 60 to 80 cm and therefore belongs to the category of low hanging chains. The length is ideal for creating layers by combining it with a Matinee and/or Princess.
My Bendel has a wide collection of different types of bracelets. Charm bracelets and adjustable bracelets are indicated with a wrist circumference. Bangles have a designation based on the inner diameter. Each My Bendel bracelet has a size listed, so that you can always make the right choice.
The easiest way to measure the circumference of your wrist is with a piece of string or a measuring tape. Measure the circumference of your wrist with the string directly below the round bump on the side of your little finger and then run the string along a measuring tape for the exact size. The bracelet is most comfortable when it is 1 to 2 cm larger than the actual circumference of your wrist.
The table below shows which size you need for the different types of bracelets.
