Bangles are delightful pieces of jewellery that one must-have. No jewellery set is complete without bangles. Every jewellery item is essential in its own right. In India, jewellery pieces worn have a significance of their own and are a representation of sentiment. The Kada bangle also holds significance the same way. They are gifted during marriages and passed down generations.
A Kada bangle traditionally is a bangle that brides wear on their wedding day. However, kada bangles are also often worn by unmarried women as fashion accessories. Unlike bracelets, they are stiff and not flexible. These kadas bangles depending on which part of India you are in, are called by a different name. They are often worn in pairs or as single pieces. While bangles are made in glass, Kada bangles are often fashioned from gold and silver. Kadas can be solid or hollow from the inside.
Men also wear Kadas. These kadas are a little different than the ones women wear. Usually, men’s Kada is fashioned out of silver and worn for religious intent.
