9CT GOLD FINE SPIGA ANKLET
This pretty 9ct Gold Spiga chain ankle chain is a wonderful example of the ornate design influences of the Italian designers, whilst having a wonderfully modern appeal. Spiga is formed of small figure-eight links which form a 3D chain that feels almost square and looks as though the wire has been plaited.
Decorative Gold links drape across your foot, sending Gold shimmers playfully glinting across the links as they catch the light.
Handcrafted in 9ct Gold, this piece of delicate jewellery is the perfect summer accessory adding a touch of charm to any outfit.
10" in length, 1.6mm in gauge. Finished with a lobster clasp for security, and also available in 16-24" chain lengths.
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. During the mid-1960s there was an increasing fascination in eastern cultures in the west, with hordes of hippies embarking on the 'hippy trail': an adventure which begun in Europe and ended in South Asia, travelling through Pakistan, India, and Nepal. This led to a rise in fashionable clothing and accessories inspired by the regions. Anklets thus became fashionable in the West.
