Bangles have been made for centuries and out of many different materials like glass, gold, shell, etc. Plastic bangles are a more recent phenomenon and they are popular because they are affordable, light, easy to manufacture, and available in a variety of colours that one can choose from. They are often made to appear like they are made from other materials, like shell and wood. There are also plastic bangles that are wrapped in fabric or thread.
Resin jewellery, including bangles, was a popular trend in the 70s and were available in many shapes, patterns, and colours that one can’t take their eyes off of, such as tortoiseshell, at a pocket-friendly cost. Resin bangles were easy to manufacture due to the fluidity of the material. Closer home, many street markets that sell jewellery, like Chandni Chowk, sell plastic bangles in all colours from the rainbow. One can often spot girls in India wearing stacks of colourful plastic bangles on their hands with kurtas and salwars. Plastic bangles are gradually being used more than glass bangles owing to the fact that it is inexpensive and available in a plethora of shades.
