Anklets (Ankle Bracelets): Sexual, Sacral and Fashionable

Thursday, 01 October 2009

ankle bracelets ankletsAll told, ankle bracelets is a little bit absurd since the word «bracelet» in French stands for «wrist» coming from the «bras» as hand. Thus, we have it as paradox wrist adornment for feet. Anyway, the anklets is accepted as the unique ring accessory made from metal, stones, leather and whatever the designers can create from.

Traditionally bracelets are worn on wrists and feet.

Bracelets created by ancient people were not considered as decorations and jewelry at all, they were predominantly created to protect from evils and diseases. Earlier the bracelets were made from bones, minerals, tooth and feather. With the time by, bracelets acquired the magic power, and later on it acquired the social meaning.

Consider the ancient frescos when kings and pharaohs were painted wearing all bracelets! Ancient Egypt is also the place where golden bracelets made the epoch of culture. The remaining wall paintings show noble Egyptians with lots of golden bracelets on their wrists. The German warriors wore bracelets as the symbol of bravery that was like the amulet to protect in battles.

In the North Europe golden bracelets won the popularity of men mainly. The bracelets predominantly were worn over the clothes unlike natives of South countries who preferred wearing them on the bare wrist. In Russia people discovered bracelets very late, in 11 - 13 centuries, they were called hoops that were worn over the collar instead of the cuff.

Preliminary bracelets were applied during sacral ceremonies as the items of ethnical culture. In course of time, the sacral meaning was lost and bracelet became the element of clothes, while noble women wore golden and silver bracelets, townswomen preferred glass bracelets, while peasant women afforded copper bracelets.

The social distinction was noted in wearing all kinds of jewelry, like tiaras, earrings, necklaces or expensive women bracelets that were not allowed for hay seeders since they symbolized sacral power and authority. Bracelets are discovered during archeological digs and inside the ancient Egyptian pyramids, and in the territory of the former Kievskaya Rus.

During the Middle Ages in Europe bracelet outdated for that time the clothes with long sleeves was common and well practiced. Though in the Renaissance Age the sleeves get shorter, hands are opened and people start wearing bracelets again. In the course of the history the sacral meaning of bracelets faded, as well as the symbolical meaning of jewelry and bracelets on the whole. On the top of it, they appeared to be the sign of prosperity, well-being and wealth.

In our times bracelets bring to fashion in various ways. Bracelets came from Eastern countries where low-waist line trousers and ankle bracelets were common to the culture of Eastern countries. Though bracelets were worn on both feet traditionally.

In India early people wore bracelets on both feet, both from gold and solver. They dangled when walking and dancing. Anklets were of two types. One type included bracelets consisting of different links making one chain. Such decorations were very flexible. They were long-lasting enough to add some more elements like bells or other dangling and jingling figures to create unique and special sounds when dancing. The other type of bracelets appeared as springy and non-flexible knick-knack made of the single band of metal. This classification is accepted for bracelets up to date. As following this tradition, charms are very popular currently, presented as a solid chain  with dangling small pendants attached to it that symbolize major life events. Tiny key means the purchase of a new flat, mini-binky is the sign to say that a baby is born, and so forth.

The other way to bracelets origin comes from the East as well, though it is paved through Europe and America where ankle bracelets were set as trend in the early XX century. This new trend gave some sexuality to wearing bracelets on feet. By the tradition bracelets were usually worn as a decoration on the right foot only as the expression of freedom and availability, while the bracelet on the left foot was the sign of a woman of pleasure. Though, this is fascinating that some time back in the West ordinary peasant people wore the chain on the foot instead of the wedding ring to symbolize the marriage.

As soon as America was discovered, this weird tradition to stay faithful followed there too. American girls still wear ankle chains, though in the course of time this decoration changed the meaning and now it is acknowledged as the sign telling that the bracelet wearer is free and does not mind to become friends or get affair with a young man.

In the majority, ladies wear this decoration to underline the beauty of their legs and feet, without any secret meaning. So, it is up to you, whether you will opt to have the ankle bracelets as the creative ethnic thing, as the sign of femininity, as the sign of prosperity if made from gold or platinum. Sometimes you may have anklets on your foot just because your tanned leg needs and accessory to express your tan. And avoid thinking negatively, just enjoy the beauty and looks of men you face when walking or swimming. Men should be attracted by you, in all and every case.
