Bangles - Symbolizing health, luck, and prosperity

The popular bangle-style bracelet, characterized as a circular and rigid bracelet, dates back to as early as 2600 BC. The ancient accessory holds cultural significance that dates back nearly 5,000 years to the Mohenjo-Daro settlements on the banks of the Indus River in what is Pakistan today.

The bangle bracelet has also been found in ancient Mayan, Mauryan, Roman and Indian ruins. This historically significant item is one of the oldest forms of jewelry that has ever been discovered. Ancient bangles were made of terracotta, stone, shells, copper, glass and other similar materials.

The bangle is an important item of wedding jewelry for many Indian brides, though the meaning and significance varies from region to region and family to family. Glass bangles are meant to represent safety and luck in marriage. Depending on the bride’s origins and family traditions, she may be found wearing gold-plated iron bangles, green bangles, or ivory and red bangles.

Science behind the bangles gifted to women during the baby shower

Tinkle of bangles provides acoustic stimuli for the baby,” said Dr Geetha Haripriya, gynecologist and chairperson of Prashanth Hospitals. Studies have shown that cheerful or calming music reduces a pregnant woman’s stress and depression and helps the fetus develop the ability to hear. A stressed out pregnant woman is more likely to give birth to a pre-term or underweight baby, gynecologists say.
