Tips To Buy Traditional Indian Bangles

In a casual conversation, a Canadian friend asked me if I could write about various types of Indian traditional Gold bangles and the best way to choose from the umpteen designs we have, wait Are you serious. Yes, she was. She is an Indologist and a distant friend, also an author herself but Indian woman are her best bet to write this. Though I had my own qualms, I reluctantly agreed to help with a lingering doubt on how best I can bring the vibrancy, warmth, colorfulness of Indian Bangles to words!!

The Science Behind Bangles

In an Indian context there are various myths- some true, some practical, some religious attached to wearing gold bangles or rather bangles:

They Say: the clanging sound keeps the negative spirits at bay, though this is a myth, the reality is to bring more attentiveness with the sound and hence keeping us more active.

They Say: dozens of bangles adorned by a pregnant woman indirectly strengthens the nerves of the umbilical cord thus resulting in an easy delivery.

They Say: wearing bangles constantly gives a wrist exercise thus keeping the arms in strength, sleek and thin.

Whatever be the season or reason, wearing bangles is fun and helpful too.

Despite the myths, despite the modernity, despite the minimalist stands, Indians love for gold Jewellery is here to stay for many centuries to come, so is their fondness for gold bangles in particular. Every Indian woman owns atleast a pair of gold bangles which they either gain by themselves or received as a token of love famously called “Shagun” from someone dear. The first pair of gold bangles we receive are from when we are a kid in the form of petite & cute baby bangles or during age attainment or mostly during our wedding. Though we have not much choice of selecting our first pair of gold bangles or a gold kangan set, they are special as they hold a sentimental value with them. For all the preceding pairs of bangles we buy, here are three checks one can do before we bring home that lovely pair:

Other workmanship to name a few are- Pachi Bangle Designs, Antique Bangle Designs, Meenakari Bangle Designs etc Keep your eyes open to check the workmanship, it is indeed worth investing on such kind of traditional gold bangles such as the Kundan gold bangles or temple gold bangles/ Kada.
