Crystal anklets have joined the anklet trend as one of the newest additions. In recent years a cheaper alternative to jeweled gemstone anklets have been sought by consumers; most of the time crystal anklets offer the same brilliance but at a cheaper price. More ornate styles can rival that of gold and gemstone anklets, such as those embedded with Swarovski crystals.
Crystal anklets tend to be set in silver or even with gold, but can sometimes be found made from cheaper metals. The materials used, dictate the pricing of a crystal anklet, and sometimes the maker can be one whose name and reputation add to the cost. Swarovski is one of the best known, and most expensive, makers in making crystal jewelry, including crystal anklets. Swarovski tends to be more elaborate with its designs, incorporating patterns, multiple colors, and even figural pieces as charms. Swarovski crystals are cut so brilliantly that they can easily pass for real gemstones.
Less known makers or less elaborate designs can make a crystal anklet cheaper in price. These tend to also be not as brilliant or dazzling, but still are comparable to gemstones and semi precious stones in appearance.
