Let's explore the new must-have accessory in Rushden - The Permanent Anklet!  Permanent welded anklets are thin chains that are micro-welded on to the ankle, using a tiny 'jump ring' instead of a clasp.  


The History of Anklets: A Journey Through Time

The tradition of wearing anklets dates back thousands of years, with evidence of their existence found in various ancient civilizations. In ancient Egypt, anklets were worn by both men and women as symbols of social status and wealth. These anklets were often made from precious metals and adorned with intricate designs, showcasing the craftsmanship of the time.

In India, anklets have been a symbol of femininity and marriage for centuries. They are commonly known as "payal" or "pajeb" and are an essential part of a bride's attire. In many South Asian cultures, it is believed that the tinkling sound of anklets wards off evil spirits and signifies the presence of a married woman.
