Women wearing a golden or silver bracelet on their ankles with precious stones were a symbolism that they are wives of wealthy men, while the commoners wear leather or metallic bracelets on their ankles made out of shells just to serve as their talismans.
While for early India, anklets were very common for women either to indicate marital status or just as an embellishment. Paayal which are flexible ankle chains were widely used by Indian dancers. They usually add plangent trinkets to tinkle and jingle gently while dancing. Now these kinds of anklets are widely used by Arabian belly dancers.
