Be it romance, wedding or eid, bangles have played a vital role in all three. We see a budding romance in a movie start well enough with the hero sliding bangles on the heroine’s arm, or a newlywed hero simply buying a set of bangles for his wife on their first day of marriage; we see stalls lined up in markets before eid, selling bangles in huge amounts and it’s a must for bride to adorn the colourful metal on her wedding day. From its origins in Mohenjo Daro to its special significance in the present times, bangles have come a long way into serving us ladies and make us look all decorated and glamorous. The word itself comes from Sanskrit and symbolizes the ‘completeness of a woman.’ Bangles were not limited to a metal back in the days; they were made from bronze, copper, shell, gold and other metals. Even today, you see them in a variety of forms but the most popular ones worn in vast amount are the glass bangles. They come in different designs, covered in glitter or ribbons or even gotas that give them a very trendy look for weddings and other occasions. They hold a sentimental value for some cultures, but apart from that, no girl leaves a chance of wearing bangles when it comes to it. Here are a few bangle designs that we all love to adorn on multiple occasions:
The clinging sound of the bangles as you move your arm is music to ears. The colours and glam it brings with it livens up the entire room as you make your entrance. So make sure to get your hands on this beautiful ornament as Eid is approaching and you don’t want to miss out on the opportunity! Which design do you like to wear?
