Just about a century ago, the mere sight of a woman’s ankle peeking out from beneath her hemline was sure to raise some eyebrows. Now, years later, many women make the most of their ankles with elegant jewelry that emphasize their ankles in much the same way that bracelets bring focus to their wrists. While the trend in anklets has largely centered on delicate chains, beaded anklets provide the newest take on this jewelry favorite. In fact, beaded jewelry has been a popular staple of women’s jewelry for some time now. It should then come as no surprise that beads composed of pottery, glass, china, metal, and precious gemstones are finding their way to the ankle.
