I think a toe ring or an ankle bracelet can look cute so long as it's with the right outfit and on the right occasion. With a cute sundress on a weekend brunch date, adorable. With your navy blue suit in court? Not so much.

Unfortunately, I've never found a toe ring that I found comfortable.

I also don't think multiple toe rings looks very nice. (I also don't like multiple rings per hand.)

Nice. Simple and elegant without attracting too much attention.

I agree with this. IF and this is a big IF , you have nice feet and maintain them well, a simple silver or gem stone anklet can look nice in the Summer. I'll add nice legs are needed and appropriate clothes.

If the anklet is gold and involves hearts, it's a fashion NO - and always has been a bit trashy. Like "Johnny loves Britni" - no no no.

I have a simple silver anklet that I wear in the Summer when my legs are tanned. I have a turquoise anklet that I also wear with certain fun clothes.

I'd wear them with shorts, a sundress or some thing similar. But not to a professional job.

Toe rings are just ugly. I just don't think anyone has feet so great that they should command that much attention.

Rings are for fingers.

I can agree with you but not entirely.

Toe rings are a common fashion accessory by women in the Middle East and in Indian culture.

I strongly believe that having great feet from a cleanliness point of view is reflective of good grooming habits and paying attention to ones overall hygene.

Physically, it's a matter of personal taste as to who's feet and toes look good with rings and jewelry on them. By rule, women who show freshly polished, well pedicured toes with feet that are well taken care of always look better with or without foot jewelry.

I think women with slightly longer toes might be a tad better suited for wearing toe rings. IMO it looks more practical for ladies to have a more distinguished toe length for the rings to fit better, just like they are worn on fingers.

The best womens feet I've seen with toe rings and foot jewelry belong to women with larger feet and longer toes. Also, I think the sandals that a woman chooses to wear plays a significant role in the appeal of her feet. Her toes and and foot jewelry adds to the presentation.

Take clear nail polish and use it on the inside of rings that turn your skin green I love gaudy, cheap jewelry so I have that issue a lot.

I do have a very slim silver toe ring that I wear here and there...but not too terribly often. I'm planning on getting the top of my right foot tattooed so after that, no more jewelry because it would be too busy.

It's painful place to get one like the wrists so I've been told.

I think a toe ring would still look pretty cool and sexy with a foot tattoo but I can see your point about the look being too busy.

Subtle is always best IMO. Saw a girl on the subway with the top of her foot tattooed as well as a tattoo around her big toe and she had one toe ring on each foot. Didn't look that busy but it might be for some ladies.

I wear a silver anklet on each ankle. I received them as a present when I was in India and have only removed them for surgeries. (going on 12 years now)

I have pretty feet and like to wear anklets, usually on one ankle, and sometimes toe rings, too (one of each foot).

As a kid in the 50's and early-60's I remember loving the anklets on the "grown-up girls", then it disappeared for a few decades. When it came back I bought so many of them.

Nice.

One toe ring on each foot in a nice pair of flat thongs is sexy to me, especially when supported by a nice pedicure. Multiple toe rings look really good when they are separated. Just my opinion, but I would think the girls with longer toes pull off toe rings better.

Dated one woman who wore toe rings on her second and fourth toes on one foot and sometimes just one of the middle toe of the other. The odd time she would wear two on each foot, always alternating the toes. She said it was uncomfortable to wear toe rings beside each toe and she wears her finger jewelry the same way.

I'm not a huge fan of those big toe, toe rings that some girls wear.
