Getting a correct fit with a cowboy hat is very simple. All you need to properly fit a cowboy hat is a tape measure. Take a tape measure and measure around your head, above the brow. This measurement then converts to the following hat sizes:

Hat Size 6 3/4 - 6 7/8 - 7 - 7 1/8 - 7 1/4 - 7 3/8 - 7 1/2 - 7 5/8

How to Clean Turquoise:

Turquoise can be porous, so it should not come into contact with chemicals, even perfume, soaps, and lotions. It may gradually change color from everyday wear. To clean turquoise, wipe it gently with a moist soft cloth.
Turquoise, with its distinctive robin's egg blue, is among the oldest known gemstones. It graced the necks of Egyptian Pharaohs and adorned the ceremonial dress of early Native Americans.

How to Clean Silver Jewelry:

Clean your sterling silver jewelry with a soft sterling silver cleaning cloth and gently rub off any excess makeup. Remember silver is a very soft metal and you can scratch it if you aren't careful so don't rub it too harshly. Store your Sterling Silver in an airtight zip lock bag. Save the one it came in, it works perfectly. This will help prevent some tarnishing. Remember sterling silver is meant to be worn and your body oils also help prevent tarnishing. To clean away excessive tarnish, clean your sterling with a soft cloth. You may also use a nonabrasive brand name liquid or paste silver polish to remove excessive tarnish. A silver cloth is the best way to remove tarnish from jewelry. Be sure the item to be cleaned is free from dust and other abrasives.
