Should I wear my leather bracelet in the water? Can I? What if it’s stingray leather?
Leather is a tricky material, and often when we find ourselves caring for it, we may not know exactly the right course of action to follow. If something is cotton, then you know you can get it wet and you know that you can throw it right into your laundry machine. When you are dealing with leather, however, everything is a little less clear cut. Perhaps the question asked more than any other is this one: can I wear my leather bracelet in the water?
You’re out for a day at the pool, on the vacation at the beach, or dipping your toes into a hot tub before bed. You want to go all the way in, but if you are wearing a leather bracelet, do you need to take it off first? While we can’t speak for all leather products, we can say this: your stingray leather bracelet is 100% waterproof. Yes, 100%. Swim until your heart’s content, and when you get out, your stingray bracelet will look just as beautiful as it did when you woke up in the morning.
Size does matter when it comes to bracelets. If the bracelet is too tight then it will be uncomfortable. If the bracelet is too big, it can fall off your wrist or slide too far up the arm. In any of these cases the styling will not be correct.

Use these easy steps to measure your wrist will ensure the proper fit.
Measure tightly at the widest part of your wrist using a flexible measuring tape. Once you know the actual size of your wrist then add 1/4 to 1 inch. This will give you the approximate bracelet size. Adding more length will allow the bracelet to hang lower towards your hand.
* If you don't have a tape measure, use a thin string, and mark it where it overlaps on your wrist. Then lay the strip flat to measure up to the mark using any ruler.
