Bridal Gold Jewelry: Bangles
A South East Asian bride is incomplete without two wrists full of bangles and churis made of gold which are also sometimes paired with glass bangles.
Bangles are a circular item of jewelry with a hollow in the middle for the hands to slip through. Bangles are mainly traditionally worn by South Asian women. There is a tradition that plenty of glass bangles, usually red Reshmi churis (bangles), are to be worn by an Indian bride at her wedding and that her honeymoon is to come at an end once the last of the many glass bangles breaks. In Bangladesh, a married woman usually wears a pair of gold bangles out of her wedding jewelry on a daily basis as a symbol of her marital status.
Bangles come in various form, made out of glass, plastic, metal, silver, gold, etc. However, the issue of today’s writing is bridal gold bangles. Out of all the bridal gold jewelry that a bride receives or has made, gold bangles are the most commonly worn mainly due to the ease of wearing and carrying it. Bridal gold bangles come in various shapes and thickness too. Bangles can be as thin as glass bangles commonly known as Reshmi churis and also as thick as 4 or 5 inches in breadth. The thin gold bangles are usually worn in dozens which gives an endearing clinking sound when in motion. The thicker bangles are usually worn as brackets to other thin bangles made of gold or glass.
Bridal Gold Bangle Designs with Gold Weight
Gold bangles that use no other colour, with the usage of stones or paint, can have a simple elegance about it too. In fact, traditional gold bangles rarely made use of any stones in their gold jewelry designs. However, the use of special paint has been prevalent in the traditional manufacturing of bridal gold jewelry known as meena. The use of pearls as an embellishment on bridal gold jewelry has been popular among women since the Moghul period.
I have provided many photographs of bridal gold jewelry in the form of gold bangles in this hub. You are free to download the images and have similar items made from your own goldsmith.
Make Gold Bangles for wedding with either stones, kundans, pearls or any other gems or even plain gold. Gold Bangles are said to be the most worn piece of gold jewellery so it is a great idea to invest in gold bangles.

Thanks for commenting camdjohnston12. I agree that the designs are amazing but a bit worried as the price of gold is rising drastically. Doubt many people will be able to buy them much.
