for those brides who want to add the wow factor to their bangles
The bridal gold kangan is a very special piece of jewellery.
They are beautiful treasures that are passed down from generation to generation and hold a sentimental value for most families.
Traditionally in the Asian community, the groom gifts his to be wife with a gold set which includes a necklace, earrings, tikka, a ring, and bangles.
Sometimes, wearing a full gold set can be too much. This is why many brides have opted to wear just the gold bangles on their big day, saving the rest of the jewellery for another occasion.
Finalising kangans for the big day can be a big hassle. With so many styles to choose from, we know how stressful this can be.
Confused after looking at a million different styles? DESIblitz presents 20 bridal gold kangan designs perfect to suit you for your big day.
