Anklets are traditional ornament around the ankle worn by kids, young and
old women. Anklets are an important part of women adornments today, though they have also been found in other ancient cultures like Egypt and Middle East. Anklets are not only parts of ornamentation but also have great spiritual and social significance. Anklets are very famous all over the world, designed in beautiful carvings, embellishments, and countless styles. Anklets usually have small bells that make a very sweet noise while walking thus drawing attention to the wearer’s feet.
“Earlier it started as women symbolism as an attraction then a choice and then habit. There might be social or popular beliefs regarding wearing an anklet, but a woman always carry her own reason that could be specific enough for her to hold on to it dearly and now it has become an extension to her personality. Sometimes you could term this as fashion though sometimes it might resemble her partner’s love for her beautiful feet.”
Anklets currently come in various shapes, sizes, designs and material. From the traditional and rather delicate silver and gold chains, they have been developed into beautiful threaded and beaded versions in wood, crystals, semi- precious stones and sea shells. Heavily carved anklets embellished with exquisite work are an all-time favorite gifts for the newlyweds. Though anklets are outlined these days with various designs ideally, an anklet needs to be at least two or three inches larger than the ankle size, so that its embellishments fall right under the ankle bone. But then, there are exceptions, depending upon the outfit or footwear. Simply, it must match with and the comfort level of the wearer.
Anklets can be chosen to suit your outfit. For a traditional look for an auspicious occasion, gold or gold plated anklets are the best. Additionally, sterling silver or silver plated are also in use though the styling can be done, again, according to the buyer’s choice. Custom made or what is available in the market place can also be used. Furthermore these can be inlaid with colorless stones or semiprecious stones that suits your attire which will ultimately delight you. Finally something with diamond, worn with high heels, will turn the heads of everyone.
So which anklet are you going to get for your beloved one, or for yourself? Don’t wait for any occasion because a gift which can bring a smile to her face would be much precious for you than any other thing in this world. Right?
