      I am not entirely sure, but these are called “pola” in Bengal; they are bangles made with red coral and are worn by married Hindu women in Bengal. Ms. Bachchan’s looks like a slightly thicker version of the red coral bangle that most Bengali women wear.

    I am a sucker for traditional sarees, so Jayas Bachchan it is. The necklace should have been emeralds instead of rubies, though.

    Jaya Bachchan sari is really excellent.

    There is something about these traditional sarees that make them timeless and I find myself drawn toward celebrities like Kirron Kher, Jaya Bachchan, Nandita Das (who I think is uber classy in her textured silks and cottons) and Rekha (though her makeup is almost always OTT) who really showcase India’s rich textile heritage. Just can’t say the same about all those jhakmak sarees which most Bollywood celebrities seem to favor these days and which have no personality in spite of their hefty price tags.

    That said, a traditional necklace with an antique finish would have gone so much better than the 3-strand pinkish ruby (or is it spinel?) necklace that Ms. Bachchan chose to wear.

    Is that a red clasp I see in Jaya’s hair? I don’t like her necklace . . . doesn’t go with the saree.
