Adult Anklet Size
Our Anklets for Adults are made to order, using flat bean shape beads that will rest flat against the skin. They have a discrete screw clasp.
To get a comfortable fit, it is best to measure the ankle. Like shoe sizes, there are lots of variations!
How to measure
Use a flat tape and place around the ankle, just above the ankle bone where you imagine the anklet will sit. You need to order a little more than a flat measurement, about 1 cm to 1.5 cm, to allow for the beads and a bit of movement. You need to be able to put a little finger into the gap.
For example: If you get a measurement of 21 cm cm snug, you'd need to order a 22 cm anklet.
To see what these lengths will look like and fit the wearer, you could use a necklace with small beads and measure against the wearer and on a ruler.
If you don't have a tape, use a ribbon and ruler.
We are a little generous with our fits. A 22 cm anklet will measure on a ruler, not pulled taught, at 22 cm to 22.5 cm.
