A common design for both, a bracelet and armlet, popular for ages among all women, whatever their class or whichever the metal, this piece of ornament in its rare splendor that the fine gold-plating effects is on one hand the choice of the ranks, and on the other, representing the tradition and being its part it is also a fine example of ethnic jewellery. This pattern : interlocked or entwined identical rings, groups of four each looking like a four-petalled flower, is still the most prevalent design for an armlet among the women folk from Marwar region or rather entire western Rajasthan and many parts of Central India, Bundelkhand in special. Bejeweling of arms has been and is still the essence of adornment of a female since ages and even those not able to afford expensive metals wore on their arms rings of bones, wax and other materials, but if it was a metal, even a cheap alloy, its design-choice was more often this chased-rings pattern.

Whatever the reasons for this ever prevailing preference for this design, the foremost among them is perhaps its ability : one of its beauties, to hold an arm, the arm or the forearm, but without concealing its glow that bursting across its windows transforms into tiny roundels of light illuminating within and beyond the frame containing it; and, here the interplay of light begins : the skin’s lustre infuses into the metal’s, and the metal’s, into the skin’s, and what is doubled is re-doubled, and the chain goes on incessant : an unsung song the bracelet echoes with. An ornament with a blind face may not be endowed with such ability as to first transform the beauty into light, and then surge the light into the rhythm – into the unsung song.

While the design of this bracelet is traditional and ethnic, with its rich gold-plating endowing it with far greater lustre and classicism it acquires the status of a beauty-ornament and shifts from the arm of a woman of Maru-bhoomi – desert, of western Rajasthan, to the forearm of a damsel of rank, a diplomat in a foreign land revealing her Indian identity, a professional in office or field revealing her womanly grace, or one in a social gathering revealing her distinction. Its contemporaneousness reflects also in the method of its use. While traditional bracelet or armlet is put on in pairs, one on each wrist, or arm – the arm being in greater preference, contemporary fashions prefer its use in single, and strictly on the forearm, more often, the right.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
