[ BEAUTIFUL BANGLES ] Jodhpur, India

Jodhpur, iNDIA, bangles, jewellery, rajasthan, 50mm 1.4, canon lens

Last night I arrived in Jodhpur, the blue city, ready for some serious fort viewing up at Mehrangarh which towers over the city reminding all of Jodhpurs epic and bloodthirsty past. I did not, however, expect Jodhpur to be one of my favorite shopping destinations in Rajasthan, nor did I expect to see thousands of bangles filling market stalls and bazaars, I thought this was a job for Jaipur, the so called 'jewellery city'.  Stacked high in brightly colour coordinated columns, complete with light reflecting glittered surfaces, hand painted patterns and diamonte embellishments, the mélange of choice is astounding and so are the materials. Choose from clear plastic or resin in rainbow shades of luminous colour or lightweight, shiny, ridged metallics at the cheaper city market stalls. Whilst slightly up market bazaars will sell you carved wooden types (not so popular with the colour obsessed Indians), glass, bone, or for the deep pocketed shoppers there's always the option of gold and silver inlaid with precious or semi precious stones. Evidently, there's a great demand for these jingly-jangly wrist adornments throughout India, so if you're interested to read more about the symbolism behind bangle wearing just click here.
