Most Indian married women wear toe rings made of silver on the second toe of both the right and left foot. These toe rings known as ‘Bicchiya’ are not just ornaments meant for beautification, but have got great scientific value as well.

These rings are traditionally made of silver because they are good conductors.

When the rings come in contact with earth, they absorb the energy and pass it on to the woman’s uterus that’s connected by a nerve. This helps in regulating her menstrual cycle and also improves her fertility. These rings help women by keeping their reproductive system healthy.

The rings may now be a symbol of married women, but the reason why they are worn has a lot to do with her fertility and well-being.
