Why Indian Women Wear Toe Rings??

Toe rings (Bichhiya) worn as matching pairs on the second toes are traditional symbols of being married for Indian women in some communities. In India, toe rings are worn for several reasons: decorative (jewellery), protective (mirrored to reflect the evil eye), or curative (gemstones with healing powers), or to denote marital status.

Even in Indian history the epic 'Ramayana' there were some topics related to toe ring. i.e. When Sita was kidnapped by Ravana, on the way, she throws her toe ring as the identification for Lord Rama which shows that toe ring is used from ancient time.

'Bichiyas' may not be made of gold, as gold holds a 'respected' status and may not be worn below the waist. Indians especially Hindus believe that gold is the metal of the God Lakshmi Devi, The Goddess of Wealth, and therefore they consider it inappropriate to wear gold below the waist.

Wearing toe ring to the second toe has a sexual/erotic effect.

Toe rings are worn for a scientific reason, which states that there are pressure points on the second toes of our feet. As per the Vedas, applying pressure to these points helps in regulating the menstrual cycle in women, increases the chances of conception and also keeps the uterus healthy by ensuring blood circulation.

There is also a belief that the wearing of toe rings press on certain nerves that pertain to the reproductive system, keeping it in balance and healthy.
The reflexology texts also mention about treating gynaecological problems by massaging the second toe.

Also, it is said just because of that particular nerve in the second finger from the toe, also connects the uteruses and passes through the heart. Because of this, the constant friction caused while walking and doing all sorts of chores during a day, it revitalizes the productivity organs.

As Silver is a good conductor; it also absorbs polar energies from the earth and passes it to the body.
