Sterling Silver Anklets

Jewelry / Foot Jewelry / Anklets

The history of anklets may be more extensive than you realize. More than 4000 years ago, ancient Sumerians in Mesopotamia used ankle bracelets to mark the wealth of a woman. The more anklets she wore, the wealthier her husband was. Thus young brides would often walk around with their entire lower legs adorned with these pieces of jewelry to indicate how much money they had. A trend soon formed from that. The ancient Egyptians simplified the use of anklets for indicators of wealth because a person of a high class would have a better stone and metal in his or her anklet than a low class person would. The Egyptians had nothing on Indians though as they were the ones that made the biggest impact on how people use anklets in the modern word. Anklets in Indian culture were a sign of marriage, and traditional ceremonies today still use anklets as part of the ritualistic costume a woman must wear. The special anklets worn here are cherished long after the marital ceremony. Indian women also used to wear anklets in ceremonial dances to make noise with the music. Bells were attached to the anklets, and then a person could jump up and down to make a jingling beat.
