(Isaiah 3:16; Isaiah 3:18; Isaiah 3:20.) Women wore ankle rings on both feet, joined by short chains, which "tinkled" as they walked, and which made them take gracefully short steps. Livingstone describes an African chief's wife similarly wearing "a profusion of iron rings with little pieces of sheet iron attached to make a tinkling as she walked in her mincing African style."
