For further details see the tabs below.
NOTCH Bracelets are available in four sizes (Extra Small, Small, Medium and Large). When choosing your size, it's important to measure your wrist correctly.
For very large wrists, select size Large but add a note to your order on the shopping cart page asking for 'made-to-measure'. Include your accurate wrist measurement with the tape tight to your wrist.
We use this as the base measurement, so it's important that you do not allow for any extra room. We add the extra length needed for comfort and room for NOTCH Charms when we cut the bracelet material
Please see our Size Guide for further details.
NOTCH Charms (Notches) are designed and made in Yorkshire, UK. They're hand polished and available in a range of fabulous colours and materials, including brass, stainless steel, and anodised aluminium. They have a 10.75mm diameter and a 5.00mm wide rim.
The NOTCH name and logo are engraved on one of the outer NOTCH Charm edges, and the rim is engraved as specified or, in the case of Full List NOTCH Charms, with the engraving option you select from the list.
We use laser guided technology for a clean, long-lasting result so achievements, memories and what matters most, are never forgotten.
NOTCH Charms are specially designed to fit perfectly over one end of an open NOTCH Bracelet clasp, Loop or Tale end. You’ll receive two rubber spacers to place either side of each NOTCH Charm, so as your collection grows, all your Notches will sit snugly and safely on your Bracelet, Loop or Tale. You'll be able to fit at least 20 NOTCH Charms, plus spacers, onto any NOTCH Bracelet, and 12 NOTCH Charms onto any NOTCH Loop or Tale.
To keep your NOTCH Charms in best condition, we recommend that you clean them regularly with a cloth. Brass will tarnish naturally but retains its stunning shine when polished regularly with an appropriate brass cleaner.
Unless cleaning, please keep your NOTCH Bracelet and NOTCH Charms dry, removing your Bracelet when in the shower, bath, sea or tub. Cord Bracelets can be cleaned using warm soapy water, taking care not to get the clasp wet. Leather Bracelets may be cleaned using a leather cleaner, taking care to avoid the clasp.
If you'd prefer a customised NOTCH Charm instead, shop Personalised Engraving. It's where you can tell your own story, in your own words, by engraving the achievements, milestones and memories that matter most to you.
A quick glance at your wrist reminds you of everything that’s important in your life. The only limit is 25 characters and your imagination!
NOTCH Charms will be engraved in your own words, and you can add an optional icon free, at the end of your engraving.
The cost of personalisation, £3.00, is added to the cost of a Standard NOTCH Charm, £14.00, making the total cost of a Personalised NOTCH Charm, £17.00.
On many NOTCH Charms you can choose to have an optional icon engraved at the end of the text. There are hundreds of icons to choose from, and we're adding new ones every week. You can see the full range of icons here.
Where icon engraving is available, you'll see an icon menu from where you'll be able to make your selection. If the icon engraving menu is not shown, it means that icons cannot be selected for that specific NOTCH Charm. This may be due to space limitations, or that the Notch has been specially designed not to feature any icons.
Icons are very popular among NOTCH wearers and we have created a special range of ICONic NOTCH Charms, where the same icon is engraved several times, forming an iconic circle around the rim.
