What a great rare find this is! It is a beautiful vintage, old nomadic Middle Eastern anklet bracelet. This old silver anklet is done with tiny detail and quality workmanship. Each link featured a three dimensional wide link. The bracelet is articulated so that it fits nicely. The latch has a round embosses silver piece with the loop clasp on each side. The old silver has a softly aged patina to it. Great ethnic piece!
Old Silver - The Afghan / Pakistan old silver pieces that I carry are between 80 - 95% silver. These are higher quality pieces and their aged silver patina color is fabulous. This is one of several old nomadic silver pieces that I have listed, so please check those out also! These are at least 50 years old.

I do not polish my vintage silver as some people like the aged patina. If you want me to polish it before shipping, just let me know! I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
