Toe rings: Not just a jewelry

Indian traditions are really interesting. Why do a married girl need a symbol to prove that she’s married? I am talking about things like kumkum on forehead,choora,nath,mangalsutra, toe ring and other numerous symbols which identifies a girl as married and why don’t guys need an identification? I wish they should also be identified as married πŸ˜›

Β In India toe ring (bichhiya) Β is usually worn by a married women and worn on the second toe .I have seen married girls wearing toe rings on all their toe. Even though I too wear them Ireallydin’t know the importance of toe ring as it’s not a custom in my place, I wear them because I love to πŸ˜€

This custom exists from the time of Ramayana they say :O . Sita threw her toe rings on the way when abducted by Ravana to Lanka so that Rama could find her, interesting na πŸ˜€ . In most of the Indian communities wearing toe ring is a part of the wedding ceremony while in some communities groom puts the toe ring on the bride’s second toe and it indicates her marital status. The toe rings comes in a variety of fashion spiral ones, huge ones and very simple ones too. (mine would be the simplest one πŸ˜€ )

Keeping all these custom and traditions apart, there is a scientific reason behind the toe ring. It is said that our menstrual cycle is regularized by wearing a toe ring. A nerve in our second toe is connected to uterus and passes through heart. Wearing a toe ring on this toe balances the blood pressure and the chances of conceiving increases.

A silver toe ring is preferred because as a good conductor silver absorbs positive energy and passes on to our body.

    1. I some how love to wear them. I m the only one in my family to wear toe rings πŸ˜›

  2. Oh yes, women are loaded with stuff. There are just so many symbols of marriage we have and men none. A ring maybe and that too is not a must in Indian culture. South Indian brahmin men get an up-gradation in the sacred thread that they wear, but who would take off their shirts and check πŸ˜›
    Toe rings do look quite pretty. My bestie has thing for them. Probably the only modern girl who wears rings on 3 toes. I didn’t know it has such significance.

    1. You said it Sumathi. guys definitely need a symbol of marriage other than ring and holy thread πŸ˜€

  3. Me too never tried a toe ring, but in pics it looks so cool…i think will give it a shot soo.

  6. Hey I too agree men should also be identified as married!!!!
    I am wearing them too… was a pain to be honest in the begining because i wear a lot of shoes and toe rings hurt sometimes so i brought the smaller ones and they are okay now….still if we can find something for men to show their marital stuatus that would be great …lol

    1. I usually remove them when I wear shoes πŸ˜‰ . I swear , we seriously need to think about something for men to show their marital stuatus lol! πŸ˜›

  7. You have such beautiful feet! πŸ˜€ Frankly I love toe-rings on others but it’s too much of a hassle for me to keep taking them off when I wear shoes, so I wear them very rarely- only on special occasions.

  8. MY hubby told me that guys (especially in Bangalore) first check out if a girl is married by glancing at her feet! I never knew about the significance of the toe ring πŸ™‚ Thank you choosing such unique topics πŸ™‚

    1. I have, heard my couisins and friends telling the same, we too need to identify married men na? πŸ˜›

  12. I just love silver toe rings and I always wear a pair of toe rings..!! Loved the designs Laks..all are really pretty πŸ™‚

  13. the toe ring actually has scientific reasons as you mentioned. guess that’s the reason that every married girl wears at least them after marriage.

  17. I love toe rings but I don’t if I could wear them on my feet ^^’

  18. I was not aware of reason or custom behind this. I wore toe ring for a week after marriage and them removed it as it make me little uncomfortable. After reading thin, I am feeling little guilty… I got pair of pretty anklets and toe rings and found them too much for my taste for daily wearing.. Thats good idea to get some funky silver-meenakari toe rings

    1. yea shika you can get a pair of funky silver toe rings. I should find the reason behind wearing an anklet too πŸ˜€
