ANCIENT JEWELLERY EXHIBITED IN ANATOLIAN CIVILIZATIONS MUSEUM

Hand-Arm Jewellery

Anklet

It is a ring put by women on their ankles. Anklets have been met on the figures in the relief dated to the end of the 2nd thousand BC and the 7th century BC in Iran. It is widespread in Anatolia especially in south-eastern regions. There are rings made of marble, wood, and leather and even if in small amounts, metal. Small metal bells and coins can be used for producing a soun during movement. The first finds are wide, metal sheets found in the graves on the ankles of the skeletons.
