Gold bangles are the most expensive ones
Bangles are also an important part of jewellery as earrings and chains. All types of bangles are worn by women in pairs, with one or bunch of bangles in both hands. There are many types of bangles in India such as gold, metal, glass, silver, plastic, platinum and wood.
Gold bangles are the most expensive ones so first bangles were made from metal. To look more attractive Indian women started wearing gold and glass bangles in combination, instead of wearing only gold bangles. These bangles are smooth with some texture or set with stones. They are worn in groups, so any arm movement that you make will create pleasant sounds. In traditional functions like marriage glass bangles are mostly preferred.
How Durable is My Gemstone Jewellery?
First of all a note about the hardness and therefore relative durability of gemstones. To measure hardness, the jewellery industry uses the Mohs scale. This gem-trade standard, conceived by Friedrich Mohs in 1812, measures the ability of a gem or mineral to resist abrasion damage.
Diamond at 10 is the hardest whereas talc at 1 is the softest. Popular gemstones like amethyst and citrine register 7 whereas rubies and sapphires register 9. Most of us come off the beach on the first day with the 3 sís all achieved - rings caked in sand, sea-salt and suntan lotion. Nude sunbathing, as far as silver and gold jewellery is concerned, is a must! Remember also that sand will scratch the surface of precious metals.
