Bangles is a word derived from the Hindi word ‘Bungri’. Bangles are traditional Indian jewelry worn by married women, especially Hindu women to symbolize that they are married. However, they are used by most girls and women today. Bangles have different names in different languages like valayal in Tamil, Chudi in Hindi, Gaaju in Telugu, Bale in Kannada etc. They are usually circular in shape and are not flexible like bracelets. Though bangles made from precious metals like gold and silver, wooden bangles that are hand crafted, have become an ‘in’ thing for their exotic and intricate designs. Wooden bangles make women will look graceful and trendy.
