It’s a popular Crucian tradition to purchase our Crucian Knot bracelets for babies and children. As they grow, you can upgrade the wrist size of a Crucian Knot bracelet for 20% of the bracelet’s current retail price. You can upgrade the width of the bracelet band by paying the difference between the retail price of your bracelet and the new size bracelet. This price would also cover an upgrade in wrist size.

How do I measure my wrist?
To measure your wrist correctly, wrap an ordinary piece of paper or cloth comfortably around your wrist bone. Mark the point where the edges meet. This measurement (in inches) is your wrist size. If you would like your bracelet to have a snug fit, use your wrist measurement for your bracelet size. If you would like your bracelet to have a more loose fit, please add 1/4 inch to your wrist size.
What is Crucian Gold’s guarantee?
We guarantee all of our jewelry to be free of defects in workmanship and to be able to withstand the use for which it was intended.
If ever a piece of Crucian Gold Jewelry should fail to meet this standard, we will be glad to repair it at any time. If a piece is being mailed to us for repair, we do require the customer to pay for the shipping each direction. If your piece of jewelry was damaged in extraordinary circumstances, or due to accident, misuse, improper care, or neglect, there may be a small charge depending on the damage.
We also guarantee the fit. If a bracelet or ring does not fit perfectly, we will gladly size it for you free of charge. The customer would still be responsible for any mailing charges. We will ask the customer to get an accurate measurement of their wrist or finger.
