How do I determine my bangle size?
The easiest way to find your bangle size is by ordering the Yearly Co. sizing kit. Your sizing kit will arrive within one week complete with a full range of brass bangles to try on. You’ll be able to “try before you buy” and experience the lightness and size of a Yearly Co. bangle before investing in your final item or collection.
A standard sizing kit includes bangles that come in increments of 1/4″ from 7″ – 8.25″
Custom sizing below 7″ and above 8.25″ are available. Please order a set of sizing bangles to ensure a perfect fit and email firstname.lastname@example.org for custom sizes outside of the listed range.
How should my bangle fit?
Each Yearly Co. bangle is made of solid 14k gold and can be worn 24/7 in all activities and environments (including sleeping, swimming, and exercising).
However, we understand that some people like to remove jewelry or wear it only on occasion. Because of this, we encourage clients to consider how frequently they will be wearing their pieces when determining their size. If your bangles will be worn all day every day, we recommend a fit that requires some force to get over the knuckles and sits comfortably on the wrist without the risk of sliding off. If you’ll be removing your bangles daily, we suggest a fit that is a bit looser over the knuckles allowing for an easier removal process.
There is no need to size up or down based on what bangle style you purchase. Thicker bangles may require a bit more work to push up and over the knuckles but they will all fit the same once on your wrist.

What if I need to resize my bangle?
We strongly recommend ordering our sizing kit first and testing our brass sizers to determine your perfect fit.
If you did not use our kit and decide that your bangles are too large or small, contact us for a return label so we can begin the resize or exchange process.
Your first order can be resized for free (up to 3 bangles) if they are non-custom pieces.
Custom bangles will incur a 10% resizing fee.
What happens if my yearly co. piece breaks or is damaged?
We stand behind our products and want you to be able to wear your pieces with confidence day after day. If an item should break, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org for a return label so we can repair your piece free of charge.
How do I care for my jewelry?
All of our jewelry is made of solid 14k gold. Because of this, every piece can be worn 24/7 including in the shower, pool, ocean, gym, and while sleeping.
Each item is made to order, by hand, and slight variations and imperfections are normal.
If your bangles or other Yearly Co. pieces become dirty or cloudy, just wipe clean with the included polishing cloth. Or use mild dish soap and a rag or soft brush to scrub clean.
Should a bangle break, please contact email@example.com for information about repairs.
Do Yearly Co. bangles bend with wear?
The Original Bangle can develop some natural bends and curves. However, as you go up in thickness in our bangle styles, they become more rigid and will not bend at all. Please refer to our “Bangle Style & Durability” chart for more details on each piece.
What is the difference between the original, the heavy weight, the double weight, and the triple weight bangles?
The Original Bangle is made of a 16 gauge wire. It is 1.3 mm thick and weighs about 3.4 grams.
The Heavy Weight is made of a 14 gauge wire. It is 1.6 mm thick and weighs about 5.2 grams.
The Double Weight is made of a 12 gauge wire. It is 2 mm thick and weighs about 8.5 grams.
The Triple Weight is made of a 9 gauge wire. It is 3 mm thick and weighs about 16.5 grams.
Does 14k gold contain nickel?
It depends on the gold color. If you are allergic to nickel we highly recommend choosing yellow or rose gold. White gold is alloyed with a small amount of nickel and could cause irritation!
What stones do you use?
All of our stones are ethically sourced. We chose which stones to include based on their ability to stand up to everyday wear. We specifically avoided some like opal and pearls because of their delicate nature.
We use SI1 - SI2 diamonds that have a GH+ in color. Depending on the piece, the diamonds used will be 0.05 - 0.2 karats.
All of our gemstones, aside from alexandrite, are A to AA quality.
The only lab-grown stone we utilize is the marquise shape alexandrite.
What if I want to gift a bangle as a surprise?
If you don’t know the recipient’s size but they have purchased from us before, try checking our “wishlist” feature for their info. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text our customer service line: 615-651-0971 during business hours with questions.
We do not recommend guessing bangle size as it is a very specific fit for each person.
Our gifting box is a great way to give the gift of a Yearly Co. piece without knowing a size.

How do Yearly Co. bangles work with TSA?
Going through the airport should not be an issue. The bangles will not set off the newer security scanners. However, they will sometimes set off the older machines. 14k gold is made up of 14/24 parts gold and 10/24 parts other metals. Once you are wearing a number of bangles, the other metals like nickel and copper will set off the metal detectors. If this happens, just ask the TSA agent to wand down your wrist!
