Glass bangles are for little girls. A dozen tinkling on either arm as they play house house during the summer vacation.
Glass bangles are for teenage girls. Multicoloured ones that exactly match the colours of the swirling skirts they go dancing in.
Glass bangles are for the newly wed. The bright green glass loudly proclaiming the change in marital status.
Glass bangles are for pregnant women. Green and red ones that mark the third trimester, and are symbolically broken just before giving birth.
Glass bangles are not for older women! Who said so? Is vanity the prerogative only of the young?
