Summer is here and it's time to let the legs out! The fun sunny season brings skirts, shorts, sandals, bathing suits, and a whole new opportunity to sport your style. After you treat your feet to a pedi and a polish, why not top it off with some new ankle bling?
Anklets have a long and interesting history going back centuries to Pre-Dynastic Egypt, and though historically worn as a symbol to represent marital status, this adornment has evolved into simply a fun fashion accessory in most parts of the world today. There are countless varieties of styles, materials, and colors to choose from, including chain anklets, strung glass beads, dangling charms, leather cord, and set gemstones. From subtle or sexy, to fun or flirty, the impact of this unique piece of jewelry is accentuated by the fact that it's primarily seasonal and enjoys a sort of “renewal” each year.
Anklets are an often unexpected way to call attention to your pretty feet during warmer months. Both sexy and playful, wearing an anklet is a unique way of expressing your style and showing off your fun personality. Here are 4 great ways to wear your anklets this season.
With Bare Feet on the Beach
Give your feet a little flash when you're digging your toes into the warm sand this summer. Glass beads reflect the sun's rays and bring a little bit of sparkle anywhere you are sitting.
Match your toenail polish to your beaded anklet for a really cute beach look.
It's shocking to think that the Cullinan diamond, a major piece of geological and British history, almost remained buried. Estimated to be worth billions of dollars in total, the original uncut stone was over 3,106 carats and weighed 1.369 pounds. That's a lot of sparkle!
Known as the Star of Africa, this amazing stone almost went undiscovered. In January of 1905, Captain Frederick Wells, the Premier Mine superintendent, was making his regular rounds when he saw what he thought was a glass shard. The piece was sticking out of the mine wall, and Wells thought one of the workers had stuck it there as a joke. Using only his pocket knife, he pried the piece out of the wall and was stunned when he realized it was actually an enormous diamond almost 4 inches long, over 2 inches wide and nearly 3 inches high - twice the size of any known diamond in its day.
It's the time of year when we turn our thoughts to the beginning of warmer weather. As the snow melts and new growth emerges, we start finding ourselves looking for the first buds and the beginning of flowers. Whether it's bulbs, shrubs, or bushes, the stand-out color we find ourselves searching for is pink.
The delicate pink of dogwood is soft and sweet. Representing that same softness and sweetness is our Romantic Pink Pearl Beaded Anklet. Delicate pink pearls with Swarovski crystals grace your ankle like petals from the new bloom of the pink dogwood.
