A Brief History Of Anklets
The significance of wearing an ankle bracelet can be traced back all the way to ancient Mesopotamia. There have been anklets discovered in Sumerian tombs from over 4,500 years ago! The Sumerians also wore bracelets, rings, and necklaces.
The Ancient Egyptians wore them too; the nobles would usually have anklets of gold, silver, or other precious stones, while the lower class would wear inexpensive jewelry that has since been described as lucky charms.
The discovery at Tillya Tepe in northern Afghanistan revealed over 20,000 ornaments and pieces of jewelry crafted from precious stones like Amethyst or Lapis Lazuli, including ankle bracelets. These artifacts were found in just six tombs: five belonged to women and one to a man. The Bactrian Gold—as the hoard is often called—is believed to be from around 2,000 years ago.
There is an epic poem written in India over 1,000 years ago whose title, Silappatikaram, translates to The Tale of the Anklet. The story revolves around a tragic romance and the theft of a jeweled anklet. Ankle bracelets are deeply ingrained in Indian culture; Indian women would wear anklets decorated with various charms so that men could hear them approaching and cease talking about disrespectful topics. Today, anklets are still worn during Indian weddings by the bride. Silver is the most common color for these.
Ankle bracelets are now becoming popular in Western culture for their natural beauty. They come in every color imaginable: gold, silver, white, black, yellow, blue, red, green, purple, orange, and rose pink. It's fun to choose cute anklets from this spectrum of colors to see which one matches your style best, but you can also choose your crystal jewelry based on the natural stone itself.
What Are The Spiritual Healing Benefits Of Wearing A Crystal Anklet?
Healing anklets are made from natural crystals and their power is derived from the gemstone itself. If you wear a dark stone like Black Obsidian, then you're going to feel its grounding effects; The Obsidian Grounding Anklet is the perfect illustration.
While most of the healing benefits come from the crystal itself, choosing which leg you wear the ankle bracelet on can have a profound impact. Before we delve into that, there's an even broader question to ask.
What Does Wearing An Ankle Bracelet Mean?
The ankle bracelet meaning is different for different people. Some cultures associate it with marriage, while for others it can indicate social status. In Western culture, there is a growing belief that wearing an anklet on your left ankle means that you're in an open relationship.
At the end of the day, you give the anklet meaning. There is no need to get too caught up in who thinks what, unless perhaps you are traveling to another country and want to be respectful of their culture.
Which Leg Do You Wear An Ankle Bracelet On?
You can wear your cute ankle bracelets on whichever leg you please! It's your body and your crystal jewelry. However, there are some perks to wearing ankle bracelets on different legs, depending on what you want to get from it.
What does it mean when a woman wears an anklet on her left ankle?
As mentioned above, some subcultures suggest that it means the woman is in an open relationship. If the anklet has heart charms attached to it then it can also mean that the wearer isn't looking for a serious commitment.
However, more often than not, anklets for women on the left leg do not have any underlying sexual motive.
What does it mean to wear an anklet on your right ankle?
As with the left leg, there are a few presumptions made by subcultures about wearing an anklet on your right ankle. Some say it means the wearer is happily in a relationship, while others suggest it means the wearer is single. There are even some people that say if the wearer is married then it means they are looking for an affair.
Of course, most of these anklet meanings contradict each other and the vast majority of people don't pay any mind to them anyway. Wear your anklet wherever feels best for you.
Is one leg better than the other for spiritual healing?
Crystals are thought to interact with your body in different ways depending on which side they are located on. If you want to receive its healing energy and direct it inwards for your internal benefit, then place the crystal anklet on your left side. If you want to project its power outward, to others around you, then your crystal ankle bracelet will be best worn on your right side.
To use Rose Quartz as an example, you can wear this fantastic stone on your left side to re-nourish your spiritual body and increase self-love, or you can wear it on your right side to help you express deeper love to those you care about. If Rose Quartz sounds ideal for you, then check out our anklets for love: The Emotional Healing Anklet or the Flower of Love Anklet.
When Should I Wear An Ankle Bracelet?
Ankle bracelets are great to wear in the summer. They work best with light and airy clothes so that they're visible and don't rub against jeans, socks, or other items of clothing. When you're catching some sun, it's great to have a selection of beach anklets to choose from. They look great with a bikini or swimming costume!
Ankle bracelets for women are fantastic for hot countries, pools, or festivals, but what about places they shouldn't be worn?
If your anklet has charms attached to it that make a noise while walking, then try to avoid wearing them to quiet places like libraries. This may attract unwanted attention or some mean stares. They should probably be avoided in places where there is a dress code, like at work or schools too. Never wear an ankle bracelet with pantyhose either, as it could rip or tear them.
Ensure your ankle bracelet is loose and comfortable so that it doesn't dig into your skin or make you sore. So long as you aren't disturbing others, or hurting yourself, then there isn't a wrong time to wear an anklet.
Are There Any Crystal Anklets For Men?
Men have worn ankle bracelets since the dawn of time, but in the modern-day, it's not as common to see a man wearing an anklet as a woman. If you're a man with an extravagant style then it could be an excellent fashion statement.
There are plenty of ankle bracelets to choose from but we have far more bracelets for men than anklets.
