Summary:
Feet are among the most the most beautiful parts of a woman's body. This
fact is often overshadowed by modern media, which highlights women's
faces and torsos, and little else. Yet throughout history, the delicate
shape of women's feet have been paid great respect and attention, as
proven by classical literary works by D.H. Lawrence and Lord Byron, to
name only a few. In "Double Indemnity," the hero Walter is so entranced
by the ankle bracelet worn by a woman named Phyllis, that he mentions it
several times in the course of the movie.

Feet are among the most the most beautiful parts of a woman's body. This
fact is often overshadowed by modern media, which highlights women's
faces and torsos, and little else. Yet throughout history, the delicate
shape of women's feet have been paid great respect and attention, as
proven by classical literary works by D.H. Lawrence and Lord Byron, to
name only a few. In "Double Indemnity," the hero Walter is so entranced
by the ankle bracelet worn by a woman named Phyllis, that he mentions it
several times in the course of the movie.

In ancient China, it was such a big deal that women had small, delicate
"moon-shaped" feet (that is, with deep insteps) that an entire custom
dedicated to foot-binding was developed. This was extremely painful for
the women, but the standards for lovely feet back then helped greatly in
setting standards of overall attractiveness; women with small feet were
considered noble and aristocratic.

Nowadays we have done away with painful practices, knowing that women's
feet are beautiful naturally. The sensuous instep and curve of the ankles
call for accentuating jewelry. This is part of why ankle bracelets are
increasingly in demand.

Ankle bracelets -- "anklets," for short -- are lightweight and fancy
decorations for the feet. Many come with tiny charms, which usually
include variants of a favorite symbol, like cats, hearts, stars, and
bells -- the variety is endless. Bracelets worn on the feet are in fact
very similar in make to bracelets worn on the wrists, which is why for
many, bracelets and anklets are interchangeable.

For the most part, ankle bracelets are casual accessories: they are best
worn on an ordinary day out having fun. Multicolored anklets woven from
fibers or threads look great with casual sandals or flip-flops. However,
ankle bracelets made of fine-spun gold and silver make a beautiful tandem
with fashion shoes, and look great for formal events.
