The Importance of Properly Sized Anklets and Toe Rings

Hey, all you jewelry enthusiasts! We’ve covered rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. Now, let’s shift focus a bit lower—towards the ankles and toes! That's right, today we're talking about anklets and toe rings, often the most overlooked but equally fabulous pieces in your jewelry collection.

Why Anklet and Toe Ring Sizing Matters

Too tight, and you risk discomfort or worse, circulation issues. Too loose, and you might just lose your precious piece. Proper sizing isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about function and comfort too.

Anklets: From Classic to Boho

Chain Anklets

  • Flexible Sizing: They often come with extenders for an adjustable fit.
  • Styling Tip: Pair with cropped pants or skirts to show off your anklet.

Beaded and Charmed

  • Rigidity Matters: These are often less flexible, so sizing is crucial.
  • Rule of Thumb: Aim for a size that can slide on and off without too much struggle but stays in place while you walk.

Toe Rings: More than Just Mini Rings

Adjustable vs Fixed

  • Adjustable: Easier to fit but might lack the sophistication of a fixed ring.
  • Fixed Size: Requires precise sizing for comfort and longevity.

Open and Closed Types

  • Open: Offers some flexibility in sizing.
  • Closed: Like its name suggests, the size is fixed, so get your measurements right.

How to Measure at Home

For anklets, use a string to measure your ankle's circumference and add about half an inch for comfort. For toe rings, remember that toes are usually wider at the base—a factor when selecting closed types. We always advocate for getting it right the first time.

A Word on Seasonal Swelling

Feet can swell in hot weather. Consider this when choosing sizes, especially for toe rings. Always opt for comfort and flexibility where possible.


Anklets and toe rings can add a charming touch to your look, provided they fit well. Remember, comfort is king—or in this case, queen. Stay tuned for our next post, where we venture into the world of body jewelry. Keep sparkling, folks!
