With Rakhi Purnima around the corner, sisters are looking for the best looking rakhi for their brothers. In recent years, designer rakhis have become popular. Available in a host of designs and styles, designer rakhis are crafted from an array of materials such as beads, pearls, jewels, diamond stones, silver and golden strings, plastic flowers and so on. However, a sister must take the personality and likes of her brother into consideration while choosing the perfect designer rakhi. Here is a list of some trending rakhis…
Zardosi rakhi would be a good choice for fashion-conscious brothers. This rakhi has meticulous artwork with golden and silver threads and looks enticing on the wrists. Besides, it is in demand among brothers for its intricacy and elegance. The special feature of this rakhi is the rich quality of the special silk Zardosi thread.
No doubt, pearls are timeless favourites. And when they are strung together, they make a good adornment for your brother’s wrist. A pearl rakhi is definitely popular with all because it lends a touch of class and elegance to the wearer.
Available in an array of shapes and shades, stone rakhis have a majestic appeal. Though there are a plethora of precious and semi-precious stones that can be used for crafting stone rakhis, sisters may want to choose the colour of the stone rakhi with care.
Lumba rakhis are decorated with traditional latkans, and they add zing to the personality of girls. In the Marwari and Rajasthani community, sisters tie rakhi on the bangle of the brother’s wife. This is called Lumba rakhi. The community believes that since the wife is the ‘ardhangini’ or better half, no Raksha Bandhan ritual is complete without the brother’s wife. However, Lumba rakhis are now popular among fashion-conscious brothers as well.
For those who are not fond of flashy things, the ‘name initials’ rakhi would be the most suitable. In this rakhi, the first letter of the brother’s name is engraved.
