Metti Or Bichiya - The Traditional Toe Ring Metti is wore by Indian married women in general and Brahman women in particular and it is made of Silver. The tradition of wearing toe rings carries tremendous social significance for married Hindu women in India. Gold is considered a "pure" metal and should not be worn below the waist. Toe rings are usually adjustable. These rings are seldom closed circles but open hoops so that they could easily be removed.
