Fitting your bracelet

To find your perfect bracelet size, measure your wrist by using a ribbon (wrap the ribbon firmly around the broadest part of your wrist and then measure its length in centimetres [cm]). Once you have your wrist measurement add approximately 1.5-2cm to accommodate the charms, which will make up your unique story.

The inspiration behind the Evolve koru logo lies in our favourite rock, which features the vibrant outlines of two ancient fossilised shells. Found whilst kayaking the beautiful Mohaka river, it’s hard to believe that the distinctive koru shapes in this rock were formed entirely by nature. The pure and exquisite beauty of New Zealand’s natural world and the unique culture of our small islands inspires each meaningful Evolve design.
