The anklet, so delicate in form, can often be overlooked or obscured by another garment of clothing – thus its presence is often only known to its wearer. The wearing of this object of embellishment can be found as early as Sumerian times, which are traced to the 5th millennium BC, and are considered the first ancient urban civilisation.
"People think that an ankle bracelet is something tacky, but in fact it is elegant because it draws attention to the ankle. It's very sexy, a delicate ankle. Don't you think?'" - Isabella Blow (RIP)
