History of the Ankle Chain (Anklets)
Anklets in the Eastern culture date back to ancient times. In fact, they were discovered in Sumerian tombs that were over 4,500 years old!
These were some of the first people to roam the earth, and they chose to adorn themselves in anklets; how neat is that?!
These artifacts were crafted from various stones and metals that were both precious and common in nature.
However, in ancient India, married women would wear ankle bracelets adorned with charms. This way, men could hear them coming and stop talking about disrespectful things in front of them.
If we jump further forward in time to the ancient Egyptians, anklets were worn by women to indicate their social status.
Ladies decked out in gold or silver anklets with precious stone finishings were usually the wives of wealthy men. Slaves, on the other hand, worn anklets made of leather.
