Let's talk about adding a touch of timeless elegance to your ensemble with this solid Sterling Silver Spiga chain anklet. Measuring a dainty 10" in length, this beauty is not just an anklet—oh no, it's also available in necklace lengths ranging from 16" to 24". Deceptively strong and weighing in at a sleek 3g, with a width of 1.8mm, it's the perfect blend of strength and sophistication.

The Spiga Chain: A Marvel of Design

For the uninitiated, Spiga is formed of small figure-eight links that create a 3D chain, almost square in profile and looking as though the wire has been plaited. It's like a little piece of art hugging your ankle, or neck if you choose the necklace option.

A Little History Lesson

Did you know the wearing of anklets can be traced back to the Sumerians in the 5th millennium BC? Yes, indeed, these ancient urbanites were the original style icons. Fast forward to the mid-1960s, when the hippies embarked on the 'hippy trail' through Pakistan, India, and Nepal with their unquenchable thirst for Eastern cultures. This cultural exchange brought anklets into Western fashion, making them a must-have accessory.

Why You’ll Love It:

  • Versatile Lengths: Available as an anklet or a necklace, you can mix and match to your heart's content.
  • Unique Design: The Spiga chain’s intricate design gives it an almost plaited look, adding depth and dimension to your style.
  • Historical Charm: Connect with ancient fashion history every time you wear it.

Shipping: The Glamorous World of Parcel Patience

UK Domestic Shipping: Fast but Fashionably Late

For my lovely UK-based customers, your sparkles will typically waltz their way to you in about 5-7 business days. Quick, but not quite instant gratification. I’m not Amazon! Think of it as joyous anticipation before the big reveal!

International Shipping: The Waiting Game

For my fabulous international friends, I need you to channel your inner zen master. Shipping times can vary wildly, anywhere from 5 to 30 business days. Why? Because customs clearance is a thing. Patience, darling. Good things (and sparkly ones) come to those who wait.

Out of Stock? Not Out of Luck!

If the piece you’ve fallen in love with is out of stock, don’t fret! It’s available for order with a lead time of 4-10 weeks, depending on which of my brilliant suppliers is crafting your new favourite accessory. Just drop me a line about your heart's desire, and I’ll do my absolute best to meet your needs.

So, there you have it. Whether you’re waiting a few days or a few weeks, remember: great things (and truly fabulous jewellery) take time. Now, who’s ready to add a bit of sparkle to their life?

Got questions? Could you shoot me a message, and let's chat?
