While the jaal can be called as one of the common designs in mehndi, we love it a tad bit more when it is used on the wrist like a bangle mehndi design. Apart from the fact that it is neat and eye-catching, the jaal cuffs have the ability to break the monotony of any mehndi pattern. It also appeals to a wider range of women from the ones that prefer traditional designs to the ones that like the modern ones as well.
