Silver Payal For Women
A payal, also called ankle chain, ankle bracelet or anklet string, is an ornament worn around the ankle. Historically, barfoot payals and toe rings have been worn by girls and women in India for centuries, where they are commonly known as pattilu, payal and sometimes nupur. Egyptian women have worn them since predynastic times too. Casual and more formal payments became fashionable in the United States between the 1930s and the end of the 20th century. While younger men and women can wear casual leather payments in western popular culture, they are popular among barefoot women. Some women use formal payments( silver, gold or beads) as fashion jewellery. Payals are an important piece of jewelry in Indian marriages worn together with saris.
History Of Silver Payal
The name for payals was not much different from that of bracelets being nefret except by adding a phrase to denote connection to the feet. They were made of different metals and designed in multiple shapes, with expensive metals like gold being more common among the rich population, while less expensive ones like silver and iron more common among lower social population. During the fourth, fifth, and sixth dynasties, payals were usually made of beads threaded in several rows held together with spacer-bars.
Rajasthani women wear the heaviest type of Silver payals, which are silver and signify tribal adherence. In The Past, women wore these as costume jewelry, but also to show their bravery as a tribe against other rival tribes. The fashion for heavy Silver payals is declining in India now, but is still common in rural areas.
In the eastern Indian state of Odisha, which is known for its traditional jewelry, there are varieties of payals known as Paunji Nupur, which are worn by women.
Wearing A Silver Payal
In olden times, occasionally, the Silver payals on both ankles are joined by a chain to limit the step. This practice was once prevalent in Southeast Asia, where the effect was to give a women short tripping step. Today, a few of the Western women follow this practice, but rarely in public. More rarely still, some women wear "permanent" that is soldered silver ankle payals and even connecting chains.
Payals can be made of silver, gold, and other less precious metals as well as leather, plastic, nylon and other such materials.
Silver payals are of two types: "flexible" and "inflexible". Flexible payals, often called paayal, pajeb or jhanjhar in various parts of India, are made by tying links in a chain. Subsequently, sonorous bells called ‘ghungroos’ can be attached to the chain, so that the wearer can make pleasing sounds while walking. The sound was also a reminder for people that there was a woman around and the sound of Ghungroos is a mark of the presence of a female. Inflexible payal are usually created by shaping flat silver sheet to the ankle and is designed with unique and minute lovely arts on it.
