Ankle-Chain Anklet

ANKLET, ANKLE-CHAIN. Anything worn around the ankle as an ornament. Such ornaments are referred to in Isaiah 3:16, 18, where the women of Zion are described as “mincing along as they go, tinkling with their feet,” and the Lord says that He “will take away the finery of the anklets.” Archeology has uncovered many anklets through Pal. Oriental women, and even men, were partial to them. Anklets were made of various metals: gold, silver, bronze. As the wearer walked, they made a ringing sound.
