This is an Egyptian silver anklet made in the traditional way, shaped as a C, with the ends hammered and shaped in their traditional hexagonal shapes. The dangles, called galagil, are attached to make the sound necessary for the zar ceremony which is meant to appease the spirits or djin. TheĀ front of the anklet has the three-partĀ Egyptian assay mark, now almost worn totally with wear. Though this is meant to be an anklet, it can be worn as a bracelet.

The inner circumference is 19 cm (7 1/2") including a 2.4 cm (1") gap. The inner diameter is 6.8 cm (2 5/8"). Weight 15 g.
