TO MEASURE YOUR ANKLE:
1.) Take a string and fit it to your ankle. Make a mark of where the string fits your ankle like a anklet.
2.) Measure the length with a ruler
3.) You have the size of your ankle!
NOTE: If you measure the exact ankle size (string fits exactly/tightly to the ankle when measuring), order at least 0.5" longer. Otherwise, fit the string to measure where a anklet would fit comfortably and order the closest size in inches.
What is gold filled? Think of gold filled as the perfect middle ground between gold plated and solid gold - it doesn't tarnish, and it also doesn't break the bank.
A piece is considered gold filled when it's makeup consists of a thick layer of solid gold covering a base metal, usually brass. Because this layer of solid gold is so thick, it doesn't break down easily. It also doesn't consist of any of the harsh irritants like nickel or lead, so it's safe for the majority of sensitive skin.
