India Anklets - Payal Ankle Jewellery

 The Payal or Kolusu or Pajeb or anklets have been worn from time immemorial and are shown in the sculptures of ancient temples.

Little silver payal is typically the first piece of jewelry that the family gifts to baby girls. The anklets are put so that when they walk around, the parents can keep track of where they are.

Payals are considered to be auspicious for women in South Asia. Apart from their aesthetic value the basic motive of the anklet is to draw attention to the wearers legs and feet.
