I have to say I absolutely love my bangles. I have boxes and boxes or glass, metal, gold, silver, wooden in a every colour under the sun. I loved dressing up and adorning my arms full of bangles. I love the sound they make and how pretty they look. Our Hindu Goddesses are adorned with stunning jewellery in all the imagery.
The tradition of Indian women wearing bangles started in ancient times. However, to this day, the custom continues. Women in India wear bangles to enhance their feminine grace and beauty. The word bangle has been derived from the traditional word Bangri or Bangali, which in Sanskrit these words mean ‘the ornament that adorns the arm’. Bangles are ornaments by both unmarried women and married women.
