Q: What toe should I wear my ring on? Which is most comfortable?

A: Most people wear their toe ring on the second toe (next to the big toe), in the center, just
below or at the first joint. The wide toe pad keeps the toe ring on, but you must use some
pressure and moisture to slide the ring over the pad (we like Windex the best), so that it slips
nicely in place. Need to know your size? click here

Q: Will a sterling silver toe ring change color on me?

A: If you swim in pools with high chlorine levels, you may want to remove your toe ring
every time you swim. Also, some people with high acidic levels in their body chemistry may
experience a color change in the skin area under the ring that looks slightly gray.
You can coat the ring with clear nail polish or go with 14k gold.

Q: Sometimes I get a black ring on my skin under my rings. This has happened with
both sterling and 14K gold. Am I allergic to metal? What can I do to prevent this?

A: Customers may think that faulty manufacturing might be the problem when a ring "turns,"
blackening or discoloring the skin and clothing, or the jewelry itself. However, that is not the
case. The most common reason is metallic abrasion caused by makeup on skin or clothing.
Lotions and cremes can also cause metals to react on skin. Cosmetics often contain
compounds harder than the jewelry itself, which wear or rub off very tiny particles.
Very finely divided metal always appears black rather than metallic, so it looks like a jet-
black dust. When this dust comes into contact with absorbent surfaces such as skin or
clothing, it sticks, forming a black smudge. To prevent this, try switching cosmetics.
If this is not possible, remove rings and other jewelry while applying them, and clean skin
areas in contact with jewelry with soap and water.

Another cause is actual corrosion of the metals. Silver does not corrode, but its primary
alloys will do so, forming very dark chemical compounds under moist or wet conditions.
When you perspire, fats and fatty acids released can cause corrosion of silver jewelry,
especially when exposed to warmth and air. This problem can be worse in seacoast and
semitropical areas, where chlorides combine with perspiration to form a corrosive element
that discolors skin. Smog fumes gradually attack jewelry and are evident as a tarnish that
rubs off on the skin.

Remove jewelry often and use an absorbent powder, free of abrasives, on skin that comes
into contact with jewelry. Clean the rings with a polishing cloth frequently (you can get one
from your local jeweler). As well as solving the problem, you’ll be amazed at how much
better the rings look!

Q: How do I get a fitted toe ring on my toe?

A: A fitted toe ring might be a bit difficult to get over the tip of the toe, but when on, should
rest comfortably at the center knuckle. We recommend using window cleaner or a non-oily
evaporative wetting solution sprayed on your toe before trying to slide it on.
This helps add some lubrication that will dry fast while not adding lotion or oils that might
cause it to slip off.

Start by sliding the ring over the widest part of the toe in a rocking back and forth motion,
pressing the ring from side to side. With a little pressure it should slide on. Usually a toe
ring is much easier to pull OFF than it is to slide on. The ring should not move around too
much and should not come off too easily. It should not be too loose or too tight. It should
feel comfortable, even in a tightly-laced tennis shoe. When you have a good fit, you know it.

Q: What if my toe ring doesn't feel right?

A: Try it for a day or two and you should know if the fit is right. We guarantee your toe ring
for workmanshipand fit for up to 30 days, so if you need to return it for a refund or to try a
different size, click here.

Q: I have toes that are straight up and down. Will a toe ring work for me?

A: You should have at least a 1 mm difference in size between the toe pad and the toe center
for a ring to stay put. If there is no difference in size between the pad and toe knuckle,
consider ordering your ring 1 mm smaller so it will fit snug and not slip off as easily.

Q: How do I figure out my toe size?

A: Go to the section of the Toe Ring page to read sizing information.

Q: Do men wear toe rings?

A: Of course, we think this trend is here to stay!

Q: Do kids wear toe rings?

A: Yes, but growing kids will want to check their toe rings periodically to make sure that
their feet are not growing so fast that the toe ring becomes a permanent bodily fixture.
Give the ring a couple of turns and make sure that it still moves around freely. Tight rings
should be removed with Windex or oil and saved for the next generation of cool kids.

Q: Why don't you carry adjustable toe rings?

A: Have you ever worn one? They pinch, bunch up, move around, catch on the carpet, fall
off, break, and basically are no good.

Try a sized toe ring and you will never go back. Promise!
