Length of VA bracelet with links removed

In the

In the past, many different options were available, for a necklace, you could have an extension done only at the back near the clasp for example. Now, there are more limitations, and the SA computer system gives them options of where the links can be removed depending on how many total are being removed so that it is even. Some are able to get an exception for clients, but it is more standardized than in the past.
I can understand why, because when I got my first bracelet sized and they had the sample ones, I didn’t realize how weird and annoying the unevenness would be to me, so I sent it back to add links to make it even, even though I liked the tighter feel better. I bet you that happened so often they only do it symmetrical now.

When I had my bracelet shortened, the links were removed only from the areas of chain closest to the clasp. I thought the unevenness would bother me but, it's not really noticeable when wearing the bracelet plus having the clovers closer together near the clasp, weights the bracelet so that the clasp is usually on the underside of the wrist and I really like it.
 
does anyone have a 15 JuC and a 16 thin love?

I have a five motif and had it sized and I dont like that it still touches the lad of my thumb. SA doesnt recommend i take anymore bc they won’t allow to remove links unevenly (yet I see here that they do)

What links did you take out if you’re have my sizing?
I got it sized to 16.3cm the only size above that was 17cm

That’s a great way to shorten it!

I’m a little late to the party here… but I have 2 size 16 LOVE’s (my small JUC is an 16 but I’ve been wearing it on the other wrist with my Trinity cord and LOVE slide bar) and I recently got the VCA lucky spring 5 motif. My SA had it sized to a 16.5. I wear it on front of the 2 LOVE’s and it’s perfect. It stays in front pretty well. Every one in a while it will end up between the two but it’s not often and I love the way it looks.

I was told by my vca boutique that they don’t do half sizes? I had a choice of either 16 or 17 for my 5 motif bracelet when I really wanted 16.5. Is yours a special request or is it because it’s the lucky bracelet?

It wasn’t special request, but I actually ordered it from the VCA at Neiman in Hawaii (Ala Moana). The day I decided I wanted to purchase, I had a question about it and the VCA at my local Neiman’s had closed early so I called the Ala Moana store since they were still open. The SA was so nice I decided just to purchase from her instead of my local Neiman VCA but I didn’t know what size I wanted (16 or 17) so the SA told me to go into my local VCA and try on the sizing samples and that they could do half sizes. When I went into my local VCA (inside Neiman) the manager is actually the one that helped me and said they don’t do half sizes, so I tried on the 16 and 17. When I talked to the SA in Hawaii to place the order she said she could do 16.5, and she did. She also sent me both the box and travel case - I know some people on the forum have said they didn’t get both.
 
I have 6.5" wrists or 16.5cm. Would it being resized to 18cm be too small?
My wrist is the same size as yours and I think my bracelets are 18cm (removed 2 links/4 hoops). I like the fit; it’s not too tight when the weather is hot, but it’s not so loose that it’s banging on things all the time.

At first it was hard to put them on by myself but I can do it now after a little practice.

My guilloche feels a little tighter than my hammered because the guilloche motifs are slightly thicker. I can definitely tell the difference so just something to keep in mind if you are concerned about the fit being too tight.
