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.
Diamond Jewellery and diamond shapes
Study the variety of diamond shapes online to see which one you like most. Make sure you understand the difference between karats and carats before shopping for diamonds. Cubic zirconium looks like a real diamond, but is not. A karat measures the purity of gold. 24k is the purest gold.
A carat measures fine gemstones and the weight of diamonds. Each has its own unique brilliance. Larger diamonds, such as those on diamond engagement rings, will usually carry a greater weight in carats than smaller stones, such as those found in diamond tennis bracelets. Look for diamond fine jewelry in which the diamond itself has a carat weight. Diamonds may be round brilliant, oval, tiffany, marquise, pear-shaped, heart-shaped, cushion cut , emerald cut, trilliant, radiant, or princess cut. Make sure the diamond is not cubic zirconium.
A diamond is a form of carbon
A diamond is a form of carbon that was created deep within the core of the earth more than 3 billion years ago and brought to the surface by volcanic eruption. In diamond, each carbon atom is bonded to four other carbon atoms in a tetrahedral structure, like a pyramid.
Each link or bond is the same length, and the tetrahedral formation is therefore completely regular. Theoretically a perfect diamond crystal could be composed of one giant molecule of carbon. After the magma cooled, it solidified into kimberlite, where the precious rough diamond is still found today. It is the strength and regularity of this bonding which makes diamond very hard, non-volatile and resistant to chemical attack.
