Anklet Designs - Payal for Girls
Anklets and toe rings historically have been worn for at least over 8000 years by girls and women in South Asia, where it is commonly known as pattilu, Kolusu, payal and sometimes as nupur.
Anklets can be made of silver, gold, and other less precious metals as well as leather, plastic, nylon and other such materials. Salangai or Ghunghru are small bells that Bharatnatyam, Kathak, Kuchipudi, and Odissi dancers tie around their ankles. The rhythmic stamping of the foot in its various positions generates forth a rich variety of charming harmonies from the anklet, and they are often matched with the sound of other musical instruments
Payals are considered to be traditional, and an auspicious gift for the new bride in India.
