Anklets are traditional Indian jewelry that is worn around the ankle. They are popularly known as Payal or Pajeb and are worn by kids as well as young and old women. The Indian anklets are very famous over the world and are reputed for their beautiful carvings, embellishments, and countless styles. Traditionally, anklets used to be worn by unmarried girls in India. An anklet usually has small bells that make a very sweet noise while walking thus drawing attention to the wearer s feet. This kind of jewellery is found in a variety of styles. Anklets are made in gold as well as silver. The styling can be done according to the buyer s choice i.e. custom made or also what is hot in the market. One can find chunky anklets, exquisitely designed anklets, anklets inlaid with precious stones and gems, beaded anklets, etc. The variety in anklets is so vast that one can find just about any design and carving that is both appealing and beautiful. There are essentially two kinds of Anklets: Flexible and Inflexible. The former are made by tying links in a chain, attached by hooks to toe rings and are worn by a bride in a marriage. Sometimes, minute bells are attached on the outer edges of the anklets that make a tinkling sound when a person walks. The latter, are created from shaping flat sheets of metal and do not require as much skills as is required in the flexible ones. In the contemporary tines, anklets made of sterling silver, gold, beads, semi-precious and precious stones are very popular all over the world. Youngsters these days wear anklets on just one foot in the name of fashion A typical anklet is usually 2 - 3 inches larger than the size of your ankle so as to make it comfortable for the wearer. Embellishments, beads, bells, etc. are attached in such a way that they fall just below the ankle bone. Anklets can be chosen to match your outfits also. For a traditional look in an auspicious occasion, gold or gold plated anklets are the best bet. For a modern yet ethnic look, go in for thin silver or oxidized anklets. These can be inlaid with colorless stones or semi-precious stones matching your attire. Anklets are also excellent gift items and its vast variety will surely make it a delight to choose from.

Payal, also known as anklets or ankle bracelet refer to ornaments that are worn around the ankle. Anklets are an important part of women s adornment in the Indian culture though they have also been found in other ancient cultures of Egypt and Middle East. Anklets are a part of ornamentation and has great spiritual and social significance. However, apart from their aesthetic value the basic motive of the anklet is to draw attention to the wearers legs and feet. Payal, called pattelu in Telugu is a significant part of bride s jewelry in India. Traditionally, the new bride announces her entry into her husband s house with the tinkling of he payal. Mostly, Indians prefer to wear payal made of silver, as gold is considered to be the metal of the gods. People in India, therefore, consider it disrespectful to wear gold on the lowermost part of the body. Many people though go in for gold-plated payals these days. Anklets come in varying shapes and sizes in present times. From the traditional and rather delicate silver and gold chains, they have developed into beautiful threaded and beaded versions in wood, crystals, semi-precious stones and seashells. Payals are considered to be traditional and auspicious gift for the new bride in India. Heavily carves payals or payals embellished with exquisite meenakari work are an all-time favorite gift for the newly weds. Ideally, an anklet needs to be at least two or three inches larger than the ankle size, so that the beads, bells and other embellishments fall right under the ankle bone. But then, there are exceptions, depending upon the outfit or footwear it must match with and the comfort level of the wearer.

Since ancient times, payal or anklet has been an important jewelry for Indian woman. Even today this piece of traditional jewelry has not lost its charm a bit. Payals are still one of the most important fashion accessories of modern Indian women. Silver payal in exquisite carving is one of the most popular and traditional gift for new born girls. Small tinkling bells are usually added to the baby payals so that when little girl learns to walk she delights everyone with the chham chamm of her payal. Attachment of young girls with payals is formed quite early thus and remains for life. Heavily crafted and designer payals are an important part of Indian bride s jewelry. Traditionally, the new bride announces her arrival in her husband s house with the tinkling sound of anklets. ostly, Hindu women prefer to wear payals made of silver and not gold. This is because Indians believe gold to be the metal of the gods and is therefore sacred. To wear it on the feet, the lowest part of the body, is considered to be an ill-omen and disrespectful.

Kolusu in Tamil, Ghungru in Hindi which is known as Anklets in English. It is widely believed that by wearing this, one`s energy is not wasted but re-vibrated back to one`s own body. Hip Belt called Oddiyaanam is made of Silver but the usage of this is not common. It is very particularly used to control women from getting fatter and to avoid flabs in hip and pot belly. Since no women wear these ornaments these days, one can see the results that are visible .

You are right, Prerna. Payal is a significant part of bride`s jewellry in India. Its history goes back to ancient age when the women used to wear this piece to show their bravery. This jewellry is more popular amongst the tribal women, even though the urban women wear this piece.

These days young girls wear payel not just for its significance but also they flaunt it as a style statement. Also now-a-days, there is no hard and fast rule that you have to wear it on both the ankles. Wearing a payel only on one ankle is very much in vogue these days.

The anklets with toe ring are interesting. But these are suitable for festivals only.

Nothing traditional can be old because most of the Bollywood diva turns to the old trend of 90`s to look exotic. Even if they not, we can create our own fashion trend to be divas in our hometown.

Since women wears a lot of gold jewellery in any Hindu religion a lot of electrical currents are produced in the body. To counter these currents and to keep the positive energy flowing in the body the practice of wearing Silver anklets is established. Wearing of anklets made of pure silver around the ankle stops the inflammation of foot soles.

Yes, you got it right Aarohi Sharma! Wearing anklets regulate the blood circulation and thus aids in curing swollen heels.
