Toe rings, or commonly known as 'bicchiya' in Hindi, are worn by married Hindu women in India. They are worn in the second toe of both feet and are usually made of silver metal.
It is believed that toe rings are worn by married Hindu women as a symbol of them being married, and are not removed throughout their lifetime.
It must be noted that while toe rings are known to have a social and religious significance, they are also known for the health benefits associated with wearing them.
Health benefits of wearing toe rings
According to the science Ayurveda, the nerve on the second toe of the feet is believed to be connected directly to the uterus of the woman. So, a slight pressure, which is caused due to the toe ring, is known to regulate the menstrual cycle of a woman. Hence, this leads to a healthy uterus.
Also, a married Hindu woman is supposed to wear the bicchiya on her second toe of the feet, while the unmarried Hindu woman is supposed to wear it on the third toe. This is because wearing a silver toe ring in the third toe by unmarried women helps them ease the pain caused by their menstrual cycle.
In addition to this, wearing toe rings is also believed to give some acupressure benefits as well. This is because toe rings press some of the nerves in the feet which are known to help the reproductive system of the woman.
One more benefit of toe rings in the lives of a married woman is that they are known to arouse sexual desires in married women which eventually leads to good sexual life.
Why are toe rings only made up of silver metal?
Interestingly, it is often seen that toe rings are made of only silver metal. The reason behind this is because silver is known to be a good conductor, and hence, it flushes out negativity from a woman's body.
It must be noted that toe rings are never made of gold as this substance holds a 'respected' status in Hinduism, and it must not be worn below the waist. According to Hindus, gold is the metal of the Gods as it symbolizes Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, and therefore it is considered to be it inappropriate if gold is worn below waist.
