If you feel that you should add something interesting to your wardrobe, it is better to complement it with unusual accessories. Such unusual accessories are toe rings. It is this jewelry that women of the East adore. But wearing rings on the toes is now popular around the world. Let's learn all the secrets of this extraordinary jewelry together.
What is a toe ring?
A toe ring is a ring made out of different metals and worn on toes. It is quite popular to put the rings, especially on the second toe. Toe rings originate from India, where they have been a significant part of the culture. Such rings are a symbol of the married state of the wearer in India. They are put on second toes on both feet of the wife by the husband during the wedding ceremony in many Indian cultures. Those rings are made of silver.
In Western countries, wearing toe rings is a pretty new fashion. Those beautiful and unusual rings were first brought to the United States of America in 1973 by Marjorie Borell. Unlike the original way of wearing them in India, western fashion nowadays dictates wearing such rings on just one finger, usually the second one. Although they can be worn on any toe, the second one is the longest making it easier to slide a ring on it. Many modern teenagers enjoy stacking those rings on several fingers for a funky look, but yet again – there is no fashion to put the same rings on both feet. Another difference is that today those rings do not possess any symbolic meaning but are rather used for a fashionable look.
Toe ring types
Just like the rings you are used to wearing on your fingers, rings created to embellish your toes are presented in various forms and styles, from plain toe bands to rings with crystals for some extra sparkle. You can wear toe rings with pretty much all your clothing but take an occasion into consideration. Such jewelry looks great with jeans giving some flirty vibe. Novelty designs of toe rings provided at our store are unique and created with the latest toe rings trends kept in mind. Let’s see what the toe ring types are and how they look.
Silver and sterling silver toe rings
This is the most common type of toe ring. In ancient Indian traditions, silver rings were a gift for the daughter-in-law. Nowadays, this accessory will be a good addition to both formal events and parties. The great advantage of silver toe rings is that they are made of quality material. This means that you can wear it easily and comfortably. Silver is also a long-lasting material that can be worn in different environments - in the water or on the beach.
This is a special kind of toe ring that is very practical to use. Since bands can come in different sizes, you can easily place such rings on different fingers. But it is very popular to wear bands on the big toe. Band toe rings are made in simple designs. They are suitable for women who love the classic style. And if you want to somehow diversify this jewelry, you can add pearls, stones, or crystals to the rings.
Payal toe rings
This is a very unusual kind of toe ring. It goes in combination with other decorative elements such as strings and anklets. Gold is a typical material for Payal toe rings. And in combination with precious stones, such jewelry will look incredibly expensive and elegant. This accessory can be worn even without shoes. Because it is very massive, it is better to wear Payal toe rings on special occasions than every day. By the way, you can give it to your wife as a precious wedding gift.
Double toe ring
Another interesting way to diversify your outlook is to put on a double toe ring. This is a set of two rings that are usually worn on the second and third toes. But some beauties wear it on the second and fourth toes. There is no difference because everyone wears it with his taste. This jewelry may not be very practical to use. Therefore, it is better not to wear it very often. Also, since it takes up a lot of space on your foot, you should wear it only with open shoes or without it if you go to the beach.
Swirl toe ring
A swirl toe ring looks very unusual. The fact is that it does not completely wrap around the finger, but as if strung on it in several circles. It can be just a silver swirl ring and can be in the form of various flowers, hearts decorated with stones. They are also adjustable. Thus you will not have to waste your time choosing an appropriate size.
How to choose a toe ring?
When looking for the toe rings you must also know about their division considering the fit – some are adjustable while the others are fitted. Fitted rings are mostly used when the toe ring is thought to become daily wear with no need to be taken off (think of the origins of this type of ring as a marriage symbol). When you decide to add silver toe rings to your jewelry collection it is better to look at the adjustable ones as they are really easy to put on, wear and take off. The rings presented in our web store are all adjustable in size so you might even think of choosing one as a gift with almost no risk of choosing the wrong size.
