Anklets are Back!
What kind of anklet is on trend right now?
When it comes to the modern anklet, less is more. It should feel minimal, elegant and effortless. Delicate gold chains, tiny gemstones and subtle layering are key. Here at AC our anklets combine gemstone droplets with gold vermeil discs and a dainty chain. Choose from our Turquoise Droplet Anklet - for summer/holiday/ocean vibes and our Moonstone Droplet Anklet for goes-with-anything elegance.
How do I style my anklet?
The beach is no longer the sole home of the anklet. For a more contemporary look, style yours with trousers - we like a slim tailored style or a cropped wide-leg culotte - and a chunky black mule. A bold suit and heels also works great with an anklet - just make sure your trousers are cropped just above the ankle for optimum visibility. We’ll be pairing the Turquoise with a denim maxi skirt and simple black sandals and the Moonstone with wide leg jeans and strappy heels.
Why choose an anklet from Astley Clarke?
Our anklets are crafted from 18ct gold vermeil - a thick layer of high quality gold which surpasses the standard plating used by many jewellery brands. Want to know more? Here’s the place to go. Our anklets also feature hand-set semi precious gemstones which means the superior quality and durability. This is even more important with an anklet, especially in the summer, with wear and tear on the beach and exposure to the elements.
Where do anklets come from?
Incredibly, the anklet dates back to ancient Egyptian times. So they were around wayyy before the cast of Friends started gallivanting around in them. They started out as a sign of wealth but when ancient Middle Eastern women started making their own at home, they became popularised and customisable. It wasn’t until the mid 1900s they made their way to the US and a while longer until they exploded in Nineties culture. And there you have it.
