Bangles are traditionally rigid bracelets, originating from the Indian subcontinent, which are usually made of metal, wood, glass, lac or nowadays plastic. They are traditional ornaments worn mostly by women from the Indian subcontinent. It is common to see a new bride wearing glass bangles at her wedding, the traditional view is that the honeymoon will end when the last bangle breaks. Bangles also have a very traditional value in Hinduism as it is considered inauspicious for a married woman to be bare armed.[1] Bangles may also be worn by young girls and bangles made of gold or silver are preferred for toddlers.
Bangles are also known as Kannada: ಬಳೆ Bale, Nepali: चुरा Chura, Bengali: চুড়ি churi, Assamese: খাৰু kharu, Tamil: வளையல், Hindi: चूड़ी Choodi, Marathi: बांगडी Bangadi, Telugu: గాజు, Urdu: چوڑیاں‎, Pashto: بنګړې‎ and Balochi: بنگڑي Bangří‎.
Some men and women wear a single bangle on the arm or wrist called kada or kara. In Sikhism, the father of a Sikh bride will give the groom a gold ring, a kara (steel or iron bangle), and a mohra.[2] Chooda is a kind of bangle that is worn by Punjabi women on her wedding day. It is a set of white and red bangles with stonework. According to tradition, a woman is not supposed to buy the bangles she will wear. (Wikipedia)
