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.
