Good evening, Alaa. I finally weighed them. They are 86 and 90 grms. As anticipated they are fairly light.

Thank you very much Peter and Alaa. I was very lucky to find these. Alaa, I am very sorry I overlooked your email. Actually, the anklets are quite light as the silver sheet is not too thick. I will see if I can weigh them some way as at presente I do not have a scale at home!!

Stunning indeed - congratulations Jose!

At last i know who got these beauties and honestly i am very happy that it is one of the forum members.

These are always very heartwarming when you discover the unusual (for kabyle pieces i mean) and exquisite patterns once they are cleaned.

I have had the chance to find some of these but they are absolutely rare pieces and your pair is one of the best crafted i have seen so far.

Congrats :-)

NB: Can you provide the weight of the pair when you have time. thanx

Delicate and beautiful. The engraving at the centre reminds me a little of Tuareg work. How lucky you were to find them. Congratulations, Jose.

Thank you all for your nice comments. I was very lucky to find these and spent quite sometime polishing them and they were quite dark. Here you have some more pics (after cleaning)
