Wrist Mala Size Guide

Wrist Mala Size Guide
WRIST SIZE: measure around your wrist in cm
BEAD SIZE: choose 8mm or 10mm beads

  • Measure the circumference of your wrist in centimetres (cm) using a tape measure.
    This measurement is based on your wrist size and also how loose or tight you would like your wrist mala beads.
  • Choose the size of mala bracelet that is closest to your wrist size.
  • Our mala bracelets & beaded bracelets are adjustable using a slide knot – when opened they are an extra 6 – 7cm longer to allow for going over the hand, please see our adjustable wrist mala guide

We use an auspicious number of beads for our mala bracelets, these are divisions of 108 (18 beads and 27 beads) or 21 beads for 21 mantra practice.

We make most of our wrist malas and bracelets with 8mm and 10mm round beads.
There are a few exceptions to this, for example, the bodhi seed wrist mala which has larger beads, please see the individual web page for the size chart link.
*Please note: some small wrist malas have a contrasting counter bead making 22 beads in total.
