Wearing a toe ring

A toe ring is a ring that can be made out of various metals and non-metals worn on any of the toes. It is usually almost exclusively worn by women but is becoming more popular with men. The second toe of either foot is where they are worn most commonly. In most western countries they are a relatively new fashion accessory. There is no symbolic meaning for wearing toe rings though and they are only regarded to be a new fashion jewellery. They often accompany barefoot sandals. Wearing of toe rings is commonly practiced in India where it is worn as a symbol of married state by Hindu women and is called bichiya. They are usually made of silver and worn in pairs unlike the trend in Western countries, where they are worn singly or in unmatched pairs on the second toe of the foot. Traditionally a large ring was worn on the great toe of the left foot to indicate a married status. Some men frequently wore a ring on the big toe for curative purposes or to augment their masculine vigor. These rings were seldom closed circles but open hoops so that they could easily be removed.

Nowadays, toe rings are usually comfortable to wear. The bands can be made of a special stretchable plastic that will easily conform to your toe size. As you wouldnt always know which size to take when you buy a toe ring, the best method is to use a piece of dental floss or a skinny piece of string. Just wrap it around the middle section of the toe (or thumb, knuckle or pinky) where you would like the ring to rest. Cut or mark at the exact location where the two ends meet making a complete circle. Line the floss up against a flat ruler that has a millimeter measurement, and use that number as your 1st Size. Then measure the widest part of toe pad repeating the process with the floss. This measurement will be entered as your 2nd Size. For best results, round down, not up.
