6 Ways to Use The Versatile Vanki

My daughter, who lives in the UK with her family, was down for their summer break with her teenage kids. They love these visits to India – calling on relatives, eating at their favourite restaurants, being pampered by the parents/grandparents… And of course, our grandparents love it too! Every visit of theirs, my daughter and I indulge in some jewellery shopping – “collecting stuff for my daughter, and my future daughter-in-law” in my daughter’s words!!

We were browsing through some websites. We were looking for the latest trends in Mangalsutras, just out of curiosity – it was too early to shop for those. We were enthralled by the short Mangalsutra designs.  They looked beautiful, seemed perfect and sensible for daily wear, and would suit both Western and Indian outfits equally.

We then began to look at vanki designs. Around this time, my granddaughter joined us, kneeling between and behind us, looking over our shoulders, demanding to know what we were up to!

I told her we were looking for a vanki ring and a vanki for her to wear. “Oh, for me to wear on my arm and finger when I wear my langavoni?” was her quick question.

That’s when I decided to sit her down and explain to her the many ways in which the vanki and vanki rings can be used.

Did you not know either? Well, read on.

The Vanki as an Armlet

Before I get carried away, let me reinforce that the vanki looks divine on the upper arm, as a lovely add-on that enhances the arm and lends an unparalleled charm to the overall look. Little girls in Pavada or Langa, young boys dressed up as Lord Krishna – just imagine those (sometimes plump) little arms with a vanki, and your heart just melts. Classical dancers – their ‘Abarnam’ (Jewels) must include a beautiful vanki, and may include a vanki ring. Brides look oh-so-beautiful with their vankis over their grand zari blouses.

But the vanki can also look stunning with contemporary outfits. An off-shoulder gown with a vanki can make you the center of attention. I’ve been impressedby a lady who wore a vanki – she had earrings, but no bangles, nothing on the neck– her hair coiffed up. She was on a red carpet in a sequined black off-shoulder gown, and she looked drop-dead-gorgeous!

The Vanki as a Leg Accessory

These days, with dresses and calf-length pants being so much in vogue, vankis can be used as anklets or leg bands. Often worn only on one leg, it adds a smart look of stylish chic. Depending on how thick or big it is, this can be worn at a formal evening party, or at work with smart casuals. These armlets are plain gold bands with very limited or minimal design.

The Vanki as a Choker

This idea is not that new! I’ve seen my mother wear her vanki as a choker on several occasions. And the beauty is that several vanki designs would be suitable to wear as a choker. The plain gold ones, the diamond studded ones, the ones with scalloped chains, the pearl ones – they all make beautiful neck accessories, besides being breath-takingvankis in their own right…

The Vanki as a Bracelet

Oh yes, with a little adjustment in circumference, which becomes easier if the vanki is a tying style rather than a hook or clasp style, the vanki can become an attractive bracelet. What looks gorgeous on the upper arm, can look elegant on the wrist.

The Vanki Rings as Bracelet Charms or Pendants

That’s self-explanatory. String one or more vanki rings on a thin bracelet chain, and voila! You have a dainty, endearing bracelet with pretty charms. A pretty, sinuous vanki ring worn on a short, thin gold chain as a pendant can look suave and stylish too!

The Vanki as Baby’s Waist Chain

This works very well. I’ve used my tie up vanki as a vaddanam for my daughter till she was 4 years old. It has always attracted admiration and appreciation. Of course, I’ve never revealed that it was actually my vanki.

My description of the multiple functions of a vanki excited my granddaughter. She wanted to pick one at once. She’s particularly fond of antique jewellery, so the next day, we bought an antique finish gold vanki online from Vaibhav Jewellers, after fixing an appointment for their state-of-art live video shopping facility.

So, if you are as excited as my granddaughter after reading about the versatility and multiple uses of a vanki, please get one for yourself. It’s easiest to get it from Vaibhav Jewellers, either in-store or online shop for temple jewellery. Their 25 years legacy of trust and quality, along with their reassuring offerings – like lifetime exchange, free 15-day return policy, free transit insurance on international shipments, free domestic shipping, customization services, EMI facility, and Smart Buy options – makes it a pleasure to shop with them.
