Anklets, sometimes we call them ankle chains and ankle brace too. They have been worn by women throughout the world and history. Maybe for most of us, anklets are just a kind of jewelry and accessory. However, they should have some certain meanings or symbolization for a long time.
- Social class: In the ancient Egypt, the materials of the anklets are decided by their social classes of the women. The higher classes, like the royalty and the rich, they would wear golden ones, while the not so wealthy class wear the silver or iron ones. In such rule, the poor family might just can afford the one made of strings.
- Marriage status: In ancient Indian, anklets with charms dangling were worn mostly by married women. It is said that in this way the family members would know she was coming by by the sound of her anklet. So they can be sure to welcome her with respect but not caught talking about bad things. It is believed that Such tradition is still on.
- Special meanings: If a woman wears an ankle bracelet on the left ankle,it’s a sign that she is married and in an open relationship. These women are so called hotwifes in recent days. Though they stay committed to their husbands, but they also take advantage of the agreed upon freedom within her marriage to enjoy intimate encounters with other men. Interesting, if the anklet is in the right ankle, that means the womanis a lesbian.
