Anklet and "Hegl"

Anklets were worn as an everyday ornament by Egyptian women of all social classes. The name for anklets was not much different from that of bracelets except by adding a phrase to denote connection to the feet.

 

They were made of different metals with multiple shapes, from gold, silver & iron. Anklets were also worn by dancers like those shown in tombs of Kagemni, Ti, & Akh-hotp. In the early twentieth century, anklets were commonly worn by Egyptian women of inner cities & villages, they were called kholkhal & were most classically worn by women of Alexandria with a classic traditional dress covered by a one-piece black cloth called melaya leff.
