Archaeologists have discovered two ancient Egyptian skeletons, dating back more than 3,300 years, which were each buried with a toe ring made of copper alloy, the first time such rings have been found in ancient Egypt.

The toe rings were likely worn while the individuals were still alive, and the discovery leaves open the question of whether they were worn for fashion or magical reasons.

Perhaps they wanted to be fashionable.

Here's a thought   ... to  help 'ground' a person electrically  while they held rods of differing metals ?   It's a fact that holding a copper rod in one hand and zinc in the other will induce electrical current to flow  through your body .   like i said.. just a thought.
