Indian women have a tradition of wearing payal or the silver anklet as the west knows it as a part of their tradition. It is one of the most auspicious bridal jewelry for every Hindu bride. No Hindu marriage is complete without bride being gifted this auspicious jewelry. And off course today they come in different striking and colorful designs to choose from.
But do you know that a Payal is never worn in gold material as gold is considered as a metal god, and using it on feet would be highly disrespectful. Very rarely you would see it in pure gold, something which is not recommended.
And though with time this tradition is somewhere lost and is not seen with good spirits, but there are various reasons why this accessory was made mandatory in ancient times. Nowadays someone wearing a payal to office or to her workplace would be considered as conservative, but many married women can still be seen flaunting this accessory with pride.
