How to Measure for Handmade Beaded Anklets

Anklet Measuring Standards Guide

Anklets have a long and rich history across the globe. Over the years, women from many cultures have used beaded ankle bracelets to create a sexy appearance, show their wealth, signal marital status, attract a suitor, and/or attract attention to their lovely, well groomed, feet. Consider that the use of anklet bracelets may have been the precursor to the modern pedicure, painted toenails, and high heels.

Anklets, of any design or style, can be worn above or below your ankle bone. The sizes listed above (in the diagram) are typical sizes, but, are no means completely accurate. The best measurement for handmade beaded anklets is one that is taken with a flexible measuring tape.

Measuring for your Beaded Anklet
Measuring for your Handmade Beaded Anklet is as easy as measuring for a new bracelet. Simply wrap a string or soft measuring tape around your ankle (either above or below the bone, where you are most comfortable wearing it). Take that number and add 1/2" to 1" for overall comfort. That is your anklet size.

For example: If your anklet measures 8" then your anklet size will be 8.5" to 9".

Don't have a flexible measuring tape? Use a piece of string or ribbon instead and then use a ruler to measure the length of the string.

In the United States both casual and more formal anklets became fashionable in the late twentieth century.
