The tradition of wearing glass bangles
Adorning a married woman's wrists with green glass bangles or gold bangles bunched with glass bangles fall under such rituals which are still in vogue in different parts of this country. The unstoppable fancy and charm of these delicate glass works have successfully abridged the controversial barrier between tradition and fashion.
Starting from a newlywed bride under veil to the jean freak swanky fashion girl, everyone's frenzy is same for this fabulous jewellery item. The tradition of wearing glass bangles also engulfed the young, teenage, and unmarried women, as it is a strong traditional belief that it is inauspicious leaving their hands bare.
A gemstone is a stone that is beautiful
A gemstone is a stone that is beautiful, rare, and durable resistant to abrasion. Today, finer gemstone specimens are available to the average person than at any time in history.
Nowadays such a distinction is no longer made by the trade. Rare or unusual gemstones, generally meant to include those gemstones which occur so infrequently in gem quality that they are scarcely known except to connoisseurs, include andalusite, cassiterite and bixbite. Some minerals can be very beautiful, but they may be too soft and will scratch easily (such as the mineral fluorite). Fluorite is extremely colorful and pretty but has a hardness of only 4 on the hardness scale and has four perfect cleavage directions, which makes it only an oddity as a cut gem.
