A silver chain of five strands (maulsari har or panch laa chandan har), widely worn by Hindu and Muslim women in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh, is a well-known item of jewellery. Flexible silver bracelets of many units called lahsan ke pahunchian — which represent a clove of garlic (lahsan) — are very popular here; they are mounted on black cotton cord and closed with an end loop and a ball, and the bracelet is worn in pairs, one on each wrist.
