Bajuband also known as Ananta and Angada across some parts of India, it is fine piece of jewelry which adds another dimension to the attire of an Indian woman dressed in her traditional finery. Just like an anklet, the Bajuband or armlet lends a touch of beauty to the dress and complements the other jewelry pieces. The love for the Bajuband in women is reflected in the fact that many of them even get permanent and temporary tattoos done on their arms to replicate a baju band. It can be worn on either both or a single upper arm, it looks gorgeous both ways. It is an important piece of bridal set and most brides match the bajuband design with the rest of their bridal jewelry these days. This piece of jewelry in its various avatars is worn all across the globe. In Indian culture, its origin can be traced back to the Dravidian culture as per some historians when it was worn by male dancers and warriors. It was also believed that the placement of the armlet at the upper arm has therapeutic benefits as that part of the body is an important acupressure point. The Indian Bajuband is now being adorned even by men as a fashion accessory and with so many variants of it now being easily accessible, you must surely have one in your collection.

Silver Bajuband- Silver Bajuband is seen adorning the arms of almost every girl when Garba fever is on rage during Navratris. And in this case the bulkier the better is the mantra for the Bajuband.
Pearl Bajuband- Pearl Bajuband is generally in combination with colored stones that bring out the beauty of the pearls. Pearls look extremely gorgeous with silk sarees like Kanjeevaram.

Kundan Bajuband- Kundan looks regal and royal and when worn with traditional attire like a lehenga it adds a touch of opulence to your look. Many brides are now going in for a kundan Bajuband that matches the design of the Kalgi or the brooch that is pinned to the turban or headgear of the groom.
