A conch shell bangle, known as shankha in bengali, and a red wax/lac bangle,
known as pola in Bengali, together signify a married bengali woman. Sakha-pola
is an integral part of Bengali culture. They are worn by the married woman for
the well being of their husband. Earlier I had written a post on "Sankha pola"
and because many readers sent me mails and wanted to what all different popular
designs are available in different shops, I am sharing some really beautiful
designs that I found after research.
Here goes some nice designs of shona badhano shakha-pola (Gold Embedded Conch-Shell Bangle & Gold Embedded Red Lac Bangle).
