The Toe Ring --Origins of Toe Jewelry

While toe rings are a popular summer-time accessory in the United States, they are a relatively new trend. Since ancient times, the married women of India have worn ornate pieces to show they are married, like a wedding band on the toe. In the 60s, the phenomenon traveled to the United States and the girls wore flowers in their hair and rings on their toes.

Flirty Feet

A summery sterling silver toe ring with a butterfly just makes a girl feel good. But, a bad pedicure ruins the whole fun flirty effect. Exfoliate and moisturize the feet and then give the toes a good polishing. Any color will do, but for a natural sophisticated look, try a French manicure. Now the toes are ready to wear jewelry!

As for shoes, open-toed shoes, strappy sandals and even flip-flops look great with gold or silver toe rings . Take off the jewelry when wearing close-toed shoes because it can hurt the feet as the metal is squished against the toes and it can also damage the ring by warping it.

Popular Styles

There are so many styles that even the most conservative girl should be able to find something to dress up her toes. Simple bands are very popular. Most of them have some sort of design etched into the surface like a Celtic or tribal design. But, there are also all kinds of colorful and crazy charms to choose from on those quirky days. Some of the more popular designs are butterflies, a cherry bunch, a flower with a crystal in the center and much more. Sometimes the charm may be the color of the ring, but they can also be painted to add color to the toes.

For the person allergic to silver or gold toe rings, you can still have the effect without the metal. One style uses a clear rubber band as the ring with the charm at the top. The band is flexible so it is very comfortable and it eliminates the allergy factor. It is also a good choice for people who have trouble finding a ring that fits well. While it can take a couple of days to get used to wearing toe rings, some people never get to that point.

The trend in toe jewelry has also gone fancy. It used to be that silver or sterling silver toe rings were the most popular, but as women move from the beach to the nightclub, they want something dressier. As a result, gold toe rings are growing in popularity and availability. Gemstones- not crystals but real gemstones- are also being used to decorate the toes. Diamond toe rings make a great gift for the fashionista who loves to bare her toes.

Women, and even men, enjoy expressing themselves through toe jewelry. Wearing toe rings make the foot look more delicate and sexier than ever. It elongates the toes and makes them appear more slender. The foot is exposed in the spring and summer, so dress them up with a pedicure and a little bit of jewelry.
