An indispensable ornament for any Bangladeshi belle, bangles have evolved at a rapid pace in the last few years, particularly in the last decade. Bangles come in various shapes, sizes, and forms. Different types of bangles and bracelets have become staples for different occasions. This week we take a look at what kind of bangles would suit you occasion-wise, and the latest trends that have gained popularity among today’s women.
A hand ornamented by bangles is always better than an empty hand, which is why even at home, many prefer to wear light gold bangles.
At work, wearing light gold bracelets infused with diamonds could add sophistication to your overall look.
This brings us to the occasions of greater grandeur. During the wedding season, it is only natural to look for innovative designs that will add elegance to the way you look, whether you are a bride to-be or a guest.
Fusion bangles are popular among today’s young women. For brides and others, attending a marriage ceremony or a reception, bangles fused with a combination of diamond, coloured gems and navratans frequently catch the eye. For the more off beat brides, a combination of gold and sapphire has gained a niche of its own.
Age often plays a role in determining what kind of bangles you should choose for different occasions. While lighter bangles suit younger women, you could opt for heavier bangles if you are a woman above forty, as quality speaks greater volumes than quantity.
Speaking to Avi Roy, sales director of Jarwa House, one of the most prominent jewellers in town, only adds to these observations.
“It is true that women are more fashion-conscious nowadays, and more open to experiments than ever before. We are exercising our continuous innovative zeal, and adding bangles of different designs to our collections. Fusion bangles, in particular, are proving to be an extremely popular ornament, especially among the younger women, while the elderly go for greater weight and quality,” stated Avi.
When thinking about purchasing your next pair of bangles or a bracelet, you can always keep in mind that bangles are more than simply ornaments. Gold bangles are valuable assets, that are passed down generations. The best thing about gold bangles is that they can be exchanged at any time, with any jeweller, be it for cash or other jewellery. So ladies, don’t hold back from getting your favoured set of bangles from a recognised jeweller this year!
