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.
Popularity of the Indian Silver Jewellery
It might surprise people to find out that the Elements Class contains minerals that are composed of more than one element. Popularity of the Indian Silver Jewellery is associated with the elegance and versatility of it. The most difficult to classify are the metal/non-metal mineral combinations.
Elements, by the chemical definition are composed of all the same atoms; whereas substances composed of two or more elements are compounds. These minerals, which combine metals such as iron with the very non-metallic elements of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorous and silicon, are quite unique and quite rare. But the sulfides class is by convention limited to sulfur and semi-metal combinations as discussed above. They are not too different from sulfides which typically combine metals with sulfur.
