A belly chain or waist chain is the popular English term for the Indian jewelry called kamarband. The belly chain is a type of body jewelry worn around the waist. Some belly chains attach to a navel piercing; these are also called "pierced belly chains". They are often made of silver or gold. Waist beads are designed to be worn by women & men of all shapes, sizes, and races.
where waist beads are a cultural tradition, the beads are often associated with womanhood, maturity, and growth. Waist beads can help a person become more aware of their stomach and posture. The beads fit quite differently depending on how one is sitting and breathing. They can serve as a reminder to sit up straight, engage your stomach muscles, relax your back, and breathe properly. Waist beads may look like a simple accessory, but they can have a transformational effect on the wearer spiritually & physically.
