An anklet, also called ankle chain, ankle bracelet or ankle string, is an ornament worn around the ankle. Barefoot anklets and toe rings historically have been worn for centuries by girls and women in India, where it is commonly known as payal. They have also been worn by Egyptian women since predynastic times.
A woman who wears an ankle bracelet on her right ankle is indicating that she is in a relationship. A woman who wears an ankle bracelet on her left ankle is indicating that she is single and is happy to be approached by members of the opposite sex. If a woman wears an ankle bracelet on both ankles she is indicating that she is in a relationship, but still open to approach. Ankle bracelets are flirtatious and playful. It is frowned upon to wear anklets in a formal setting such as the workplace. Anklets can be made of silver, gold and other less precious metals as well as leather, plastic, nylon, beads and other such materials. In the western world anklets or ankle chains are mainly worn by younger females, but some older women also wear them.
What ever the case is they are a huge trend right now, so you can wear them for aesthetic purposes or with a meaning behind them, it's your choice, the only thing you need to consider is - are you gonna rock them with heels, flats or no shoes at all!!! ;)
