Ankle bracelets or Anklets have a rich history that goes back centuries and they continue to be fashionable today. There is something very appealing about wearing a flash of precious metal with a glimmer of beads or crystals around the ankle. It catches the eye, and the imagination.

Many women love to wear anklets, or think they might like to try one, but are not always sure which style or size would work best for them. Most likely you have seen a beautiful custom beaded anklet on a web site but hesitated to order it as you were not sure if the ankle bracelet would fit properly. There is no need to let uncertainly prevent you from selecting and ordering that ankle bracelet you have your eye on.

Determining your style and size are easy by keeping a few simple things in mind. First, start by determining how you want to wear the ankle bracelet. Do you want it to sit above or below your ankle bone, would you like it to fit snuggly or loosely? Keep in mind that your preference may vary with the style of the anklet you are considering as well as the style of footwear you plan to wear. Does the beaded anklet have a bead or crystal at the end of the chain that will hang down? If you are planning to wear this type of beaded ankle bracelet with shoes you will most likely want to wear it above your ankle bone or the dangling bead or crystal may slip inside the shoe where it will be uncomfortable. On the other hand if you plan to wear sandals or flip flops you may be very comfortable wearing this type of anklet below the ankle bone. Many ankle bracelets are adjustable and allow greater flexibility so it can rest above or below the ankle bone and be either tight or loose fitting.

Once you have thought about style and footwear preferences, it is time to take a few measurements to establish your size range. Gather a soft tape measure or a piece of string and a ruler. Take the tape measure or string and wrap it around your ankle in the position you plan to wear the anklet. Consider leaving a bit of room and not measuring to snuggly for the most comfortable fit. Use your fingers to pinch the tape or string to mark the desired measurement. If you used a tape measure look at the measurement you have marked, if you used a string, use the ruler to determine the measurement of the string. If you are considering an adjustable anklet and various footwear styles measure both above and below the ankle bone allowing a little extra room for comfort. This will be your size range. Select a handcrafted beaded ankle bracelet that is within your size range and enjoy.

Armed with good information and proper measurements you can select that perfect anklet with confidence.
