How Do I Measure My Wrist?
Once you have selected a piece, the best way to determine what size to order is by measuring your actual wrist.
Using a flexible tailor’s tape, measure the circumference of your wrist by fitting it right above or below the wrist bone. (Depending on where you normally wear your bracelets.) If you do not have tailor’s tape, you may also use regular tape to measure your wrist. (If using regular tape, mark the spot where the tape ends meet and measure with a ruler.)
Match this measurement to the correlating row on our Size Chart below. For example, a wrist measuring just over six inches would correspond to a woman’s medium. If you are on the cusp between two sizes, you may select the smaller size for a tighter fit, or larger size for a looser fit, depending on your preference. A Women's Medium is the average size for the "standard woman", while a Men's Large is the average size for the "standard man".

How Do I Care For My FreeBird1985 Jewelry?
1. Keep It Dry
The fastest way to tarnish your jewelry is by contact with moisture and liquids. This includes putting on lotions, washing your hands, a spritz of perfume, and sweating with your jewels on. Even the oils on your skin can wear down the plating and metals over time - and this will again vary from person to person. Your jewelry should also not be worn in chlorine or salt waters.
2. Store It Properly
Exposure to the simplest things like the moisture in the air can wear down your jewelry, so it's important to store it properly. When not in use, try to keep your jewelry protected from the sun and safe from scratches and chips.
Try storing your jewelry in a Ziploc bag, making sure you get rid of as much air as possible before sealing it. With the air removed, the metal won't be able to oxidize from the air.
You can also get some 3M anti-tarnish strips. These super absorbent pieces of paper will basically suck all of the culprits in the surrounding air that will cause your jewelry to tarnish over time. Stick one in your jewelry drawer, box or storage pouch.
3. Give It A Break
As much as you may love your jewelry, it's not meant to be worn 24/7. Put your jewelry in rotation and give your favorite pieces a break from everything that literally wants to "break them down".
If your jewelry becomes tarnished, it's best to use common household products as traditional jewelry cleaners are too harsh. Surprisingly you can try baking soda and toothpaste to clean. There's tons of YouTube videos on the subject as well.
