Indian Jewelry

Indian jewelry types included toe rings, anklets, armbands, kamarband rings (a type of waistband), and hathphool (a beautiful ornament worn on the back of the hand), as well as the conventional bracelets, bangles, necklaces, and rings.  Like Greek jewelry, Indian jewelry also was also made out of gold most of the time, armbands usually had snakes, and the type of jewelry they wore were very similar, although Indian jewelry usually had more gems, beads, etc. 

This is an Indian necklace.
