Similarly, every jewelry that we wear or used to wear decades ago, had a scientific significance and affected in some way or the other on our body.

1. Wearing anklets

Wearing anklets helps one to re-vibrate the energy to their own body. And also, wearing a lot of gold jewelry produces a lot of electrical current in the body. To counter these currents and to keep the positive energy flowing in the body, the practice of wearing Silver anklets was established.

2. Silver and Gold

According to scientific principles, silver reacts well with the Earth’s energy, while gold reacts well with the body’s energy and aura. Therefore, silver is worn as anklets or toe rings while gold is used to adorn the upper parts of the body.

Apparently constant friction between the bangles increases the blood circulation level. Furthermore, the electricity passing out through the skin is again reverted to one’s own body because of the round-shaped bangles, which help retain ones’ own energy.
