339 Old SIlver Kaandaa Phool Toe Rings – Indian Jewelry with Cultural Significance

Toe rings are worn as a sign of marital status

The aesthetics of every region evolved within its cultural environment.

This pair from Maharashtra is designed like the flower of the onion plant [kaandaa] as that plant grows in the region and is popular in the diet.

Little bells surround a central stamen-like cone. Beautifully handcrafted.

Age unknown but estimated to be from the 1960s-1970s

Rare.

I shall probably not see another similar piece ever again.

PRICE IS FOR ONE EACH OF THE PAIR – AS THESE CAN BE USED AS FINGER RINGS

***

This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
