What are Jhumkis?

Sure, it’s an exotic sounding word but what does it mean exactly? Is it a Japanese snack food? A small breed dog? Or (pick this one) a type of earrings worn at traditional Indian events?

Jhumkis are gold earrings that are loosely shaped like a bell. Women in Indian villages wear jhumkis on a daily basis, not only for┬átheir captivating beauty but to show the public how much they can afford to provide as dowries for their daughters’ weddings.

Jhumkis are also worn by many a Bollywood star for its glamorous and historical appeal.

The amazing part with jewelry history? There’s so much of it! Even earrings have an extensive global history of styles and societal implications.
