Anklets are the perfect accessory for people who don’t like large flash jewelry.
They have a sense of muted elegance.
Today, we will talk about all the basics of anklets and where you should wear them!
The Meaning and Origin of Anklets
Many people wear anklets as a sort of fashion statement.
However, it seems that the meaning differs depending on which foot you wear it on - just like a ring.
There may be surprisingly very few people who even know the true meaning of anklets.
Today, I will be introducing the meaning of wearing an anklet on the left and the right.
What is an Anklet in the First Place?
Before I introduce the meaning of anklets, I would like to briefly explain them for those who are not familiar with anklets in the first place.
It looks like a bracelet on your wrist, but it's an accessory for your ankle.
In the winter, it is often hidden behind long pants or socks and cannot be seen.
However, it is a fashionable item that is useful in the summer when you go to the sea or walk around with bare feet.
Unlike necklaces and rings that are easy to see, anklets are a type of subtle jewelry.
The Etymology of the Word “Anklet” is Ankle
As you may have already guessed, the original etymology of the word “anklet” is ankle.
And thus, anklets are something you wear on your ankle.
By the way, in addition to the design of anklets that are simply wrapped around the ankle like a bracelet, there seems to be a design that is connected to a ring attached to the toes called a toe ring with a chain.
There are many different anklet styles that you can enjoy during different types of seasons and depending on the mood.
What is the Difference Between Wearing it on Your Right and Left Ankle?
When You Wear Your Anklet on Your Left Foot
If you wear your anklet on your left ankle, it means that you have a lover or are married.
In ancient Egypt, an iron ring was attached to the left foot of a slave, so when it was attached to the left ankle, it has a historical meaning of being “someone’s property”.
When You Wear Your Anklet on Your Right Foot
If you wear your anklet on the right ankle, it means “looking for a lover".
If you have a lover and you put it on your right foot, it means "I'm looking for a partner to have an affair with”, so be careful where you wear your ankle on.
Anklets at the feet are much less noticeable than bracelets on the wrist.
For those who want to enjoy subtle fashion, and for those who don't want to wear clunky accessories, anklets are an item that is easy to wear.
