For a brief moment this fall, it looked like anklets were going to be the next big thing. The Olsens sported them at various fashion shows, as did the kickass Princess Sirivannavari. We can’t say we’ve seen a lot of ankle adornment since, but just in case you want to help make
fetch anklets happen, grab yourself one of the $4,000 Ileana Makri for The Row pieces!
Makri is a friend of Mary-Kate and Ashley, and she made the jewelry for the twins at their request. Of course, Makri’s anklets for The Row are way more expensive than the bracelets for her regular line. Let’s compare specs, shall we?
An Ileana Makri for The Row 18-karat white gold anklet with 0.28-carat ruby, 0.28-carat green tsavorite, and 0.04-carat black diamond embellishments will run you $4,085. An Ileana Makri 18-karat white gold bracelet with 0.04-carat diamond and 0.06-carat sapphire embellishments costs $950. Why the difference in price? The bracelet is oxidized, while the anklet has a heftier-looking chain. Also, the anklet has a tad more blingage. Plus, you know, the Olsen seal of approval is worth a thousand or so.
Please do pair one or several with a $34,000 backpack. Or if you want a thriftier solution to leg flare, do what we did at summer camp: make yourself a friendship bracelet and tie it on your ankle! Two trends, one stone.
