Bangles are considered a symbol of holy matrimony in India. They come in various hues, designs, and materials. In North India, brides wear red and white, ivory bangles, and they continue to wear them for months after their wedding as a sign of a newlywed woman. Kangans are broad and intricately carved bangles made of Gold, or in some cases, other precious metals. In some parts of India, brides wear red or green glass bangles.
