A toe ring is a ring that can be made out of various metals and non-metals worn on any of the toes. In most cases almost exclusively worn by women but is becoming more popular with men. The 2nd toe of either foot is where they're worn most commonly. In many western countries they are a rather new ornament. There isn't any symbolic meaning for wearing Multiple Toe Rings though and they are only regarded as a new fashion jewellery. They typically accompany barefoot sandals.<br /><br />
Wearing of toe rings is usually practiced in India where its worn as a symbol of married state by Hindu ladies and is called bichiya. They normally are created from silver and worn in pairs unlike the trend in Western countries, where they are worn singly or perhaps unmatched pairs about the second toe of the foot. <br /><br />
Traditionally a large ring was worn on the great toe of the left foot to indicate a married status. Some men frequently wore a ring on the great toe for curative purposes as well as to augment their masculine vigor. They were seldom closed circles but open hoops so that they could be easily removed.Nowadays, Toe Jewellery are often comfortable to wear. The bands can be produced of a special stretchable plastic that will easily conform to your toe size.<br /><br />
As you wouldn't always know which size to take when you buy a toe ring, the best method is to use a piece of dental floss or a skinny bit of string. Just wrap it around the middle portion of the toe (or thumb, knuckle or pinky) where you would like the ring to rest. Cut or mark at the exact place in which the two ends meet making a complete circle. Line the floss up against a flat ruler that features a millimeter measurement, and use that number as your 1st Size. Then measure the widest part of toe pad repeating the process with the floss. This measurement is going to be entered as the 2nd Size. For optimum results, round down, not up.
