Cultural Significance of Ankle Jewelry
An anklet is a piece of ornamental jewelry designed to be worn on the ankle of either foot, and is distinguished from a bracelet, meant to be worn on the wrist. Much like other pieces of jewelry, an anklet is designed to accentuate and beautify the area of the body where it is worn, calling attention to the ankles, feet, and lower legs. Anklets are traditionally associated with a tinkling sound, accomplished by using fine chain or bells. Anklets are an important part of women's adornment in the Indian culture though they have also been found in other ancient cultures of Egypt and Middle East. Anklets are a part of ornamentation and has great spiritual and social significance. However, apart from their aesthetic value the basic motive of the anklet is to draw attention to the wearers legs and feet.
