  1. To properly measure your ankles for the perfect anklet size, have a soft measuring tape at the ready.

  2. Wrap the measuring tape around the area of the ankle where you wish the anklet to lie.

  3. Use this measurement to purchase your new Satin Crystals ankle bracelets.

  4. An alternative method for measuring anklet size if you don't have a measuring tape handy is to use a piece of string and wrap it around your ankle. Use this measurement against a ruler to find your true anklet size.

General Anklet Sizing in Inches

Please note that your anklet size is not determined exclusively by your height or weight. Your body frame determines your ankle size. Make sure to measure your ankle as instructed above for an accurate fit.

Size       Length

Small      8" - 9"

Medium  9" - 10"

Large      10" - 11"

X-Large  11" - 12"

Do you know your true anklet size? 

If you are used to buying anklets blindly online, you are probably getting an average, one-size-fits-all in the mail. However, this sizing may be too tight or too loose compared to your true size. 

Don't make a haphazard guess. Measure your actual ankle size once and for all and you can continue to buy ankle bracelets online with confidence!

Anklet Guide - Sizing & Types - Satin Crystals Jewelry Boutique

What anklet types are there?

  • Clasp Anklets are beaded with natural stones and secured with toggle, lobster, hook, or screw clasps for durable wear. 

  • Stretch Anklets are strung on flexible cords for easy wear. Stretch anklets are easy to slip on and off. Our stretch anklets are beaded with all-natural stones. Feature a single anklet on one ankle or layer them up for a powerful grounding energy.

How much does my anklet stretch?

If you're considering a stretch anklet, you may not be concerned with sizing. However, like stretchy pants, stretchy anklets can only stretch so much before they will snap. 

Stretch anklets must be slipped on and off with care. Unfortunately, no one has invented an unbreakable stretch cord yet, so for now, you will have to be very careful when stretching your anklets. It is best to order your perfect size and avoid a surprise breakage. 

When should I restring my stretch anklets?

You should restring your stretch anklet whenever your cord is losing elasticity or if you see any fraying. We have a whole video and blog dedicated to your stretch anklet maintenance.

How do I care for my crystal anklet?

The care for your anklets will vary depending on what crystals are included in the jewel. In general, you want to be very gentle when wearing and storing your gemstone ankle bracelets.

Some crystals are softer than others and won't like water or harsh chemicals. Other crystals may be okay in water, but the jewelry components will wear down with prolonged exposure to wetness, soaps, and lotions. When in doubt, use a soft cloth with the slightest amount of water or natural oils on your gemstones.

How should the anklet fit?

Depending on your preference, your anklet will either fit snugly around your ankle or it will be a little loose. If you like a secure fit, measure above your ankle bone. If you like your anklets a little loose, add 1/4 inch to your measurement or measure below your ankle bone. 

Don't add too much to your actual ankle length or the anklet will slip off of your foot completely. 

Anklets should not be worn too tight as they may snap with movement. Choose a comfortable fit so that they have room to move, but are not so loose that they slip to the middle of your foot. 

What is the meaning of wearing a crystal anklet?

The stone you choose will determine the meaning of your anklet. Crystal anklets are beaded with natural gemstones, each with its own healing properties.

Wearing a Jet anklet could mean you are seeking protection from the Evil Eye. Wearing an Aventurine anklet could mean you are seeking abundance. Wearing a Bloodstone anklet could mean you are seeking grounding energy. 

Discover the meaning of your stones in the Crystal Meanings directory. 

Should I wear an anklet on the left or right side?

There are no rules when it comes to wearing your anklet on the left or right side. You can wear them on whichever ankle you feel fit. You can even have one on each ankle for a balanced feeling or stack them up for more energy. 

When should I restring my stretch anklet?

You should restring your stretch anklet whenever your cord is losing elasticity or if you see any fraying. We have a whole video and blog dedicated to your stretch bracelet maintenance.

Do you make custom crystal anklets?

If you are looking for a specific combination of healing crystals for your anklet, it may be possible to make a custom design for you. Keep in mind that we have only one jewelry designer here and the time frame for your customization to be ready may be months from now.

If it is a small adjustment to designs that we already carry, your request may be granted. If your request is for a stretch anklet or clasp anklet with gemstones we already source, we are happy to make you your custom anklet. 

If there is an urgency and a deadline for your custom anklet, you are requesting a design that is drastically different than what we already carry, or you are looking for metalwork, we recommend finding some talented jewelry designers on Etsy where there are artisans who specialize in personalized designs.
