How to Wear Your Anklet

There are two ways to wear your anklet: either above or below your ankle bone. Take into consideration the shoes you will be wearing—with thongs or backless sandals you can wear an anklet below the bone, but if you are wearing sandals with straps below your ankle, you may be more comfortable with an above-the-bone fit for your beaded anklet.

*Note* You may prefer wearing your anklet below the bone if you have no graduation above your ankle bone, as this might make it difficult to keep your anklet in place above the bone.

Measuring for an Anklet Above the Bone

To measure for this kind of anklet, wrap a string or tape measure around your leg above your ankle bone and add 1/4 inch to the number you get. For example, if your ankle measures 9 inches, you will need a 9¼ - 9¾ inch anklet. This will allow room to loosen or tighten the ankle bracelet to fit just right.

Measuring for an Anklet Below the Bone

If you would prefer to wear your anklet below your ankle bone, wrap a string or measuring tape around your ankle below the bone and add between 1/4 - 1/2 inch to the number you get, depending on how loose you would like your anklet to be.

Getting the Perfect Beaded Anklet

Just like shoes, you need to try on and test anklets to make sure they fit properly. When you receive your sparkling trinket, make sure to try it on and walk around the house to test the fit. If you feel the anklet tightening or pinching while walking, it may be too tight and could snap. Try adjusting the size using the anklet's extender, and if it still doesn't fit be sure to contact me so we can find you a perfectly-fitting anklet.

If you plan to wear your anklet in the shower, pool, or ocean, you may need to polish the silver more frequently. Foams and cream can be messy but will catch all the little crevices, and polishing cloths are convenient to shine the jewelry up quickly and cleanly.

If you prefer your anklet to be non-adjustable, request this when placing your order and we can remove the extender. It may also be possible to custom order your favorite anklet in your size, so don't hesitate to contact me if you're having trouble finding the perfect fit.
