Kangans are worn as a single piece
Women in India also decorate their upper hands using ornate baju band or arm bands. They are shaped to stay in position with the help of pressure through straps that can be tightened as required. There are different types of bangles in the market besides having different bangles based on the different materials used for creating them. Kanganís are one of them, which is a bangle that is thicker than ordinary bangles. They are usually worn on both sides of a set of bangles women wear.
Even men wear a type of kangan, called the kada. There are also ornate kangan that are worn singly, to give a minimalistic look. These kanganís are available in metal, lac, silver, gold, brass and other materials.
Cut of the stone
Firstly we talked about the cut of the stone. Now finding a good quality bright green tourmaline with this cut is not impossible to find but can be tricky so we decided that custom cutting was the way forward. We custom cut the green tourmaline from a larger cushion stone to create the look. We combined the chequer board facetted cut on top but with a more square proportioned shape rather than oval.
The lapidaries squared up the proportions and then facetted the top of the stone. This creating a square cushion shape with a facetted top! Donna felt a straight sided square stone would be a little harsh so decided that she would like to have the stone with softened corners. The initial stone was 1.72cts and ended up at 1.05ct. After being cut gemstone it is difficult. We searched for a green tourmaline of the right colour that could be cut to shape. The twist ring is simple in style holds the tourmaline for a modern design.
