Three questions : (1) My wife wears a single metti with 4-5 coils. Her sisters wear a metti which are 2 rings in each toe. There are others worn by her friends (mostly North Indian) which are adjustible at the rear with attractive designs. Why are there so many types of metti. Does each have a significance =? (2) My wife wants to change the metti to other types like the ones worn by her sisters. Can this be done at any time. I guess once worn the metti must necer be changed! (3) In tamil customs, the metti is ut on by the bridegrooms sisters. In some others it is the brides aunt. In telegu customs it is the husband, What is the significance?

Answer: Though single coil is sufficient to get the desired level of effect, there is no harm in wearing in multiple coils. It adds beauty too to the wearer. It should be in the second finger from the toe only and wearing in any other finger gives negative effects. One more cautious note: Metti & Kolusu (anklet) should and must be only made of silver and no other metal; especially, gold made items are never to be used below hipp level. The design and type of metti can vary according to each individuals liking and taste; but the aim and intention of wearing one is same.

The purpose is well explained in the page Womens Jewellery & Ornaments, which is self explanatory. The custom of offering by metti by different relatives are made to the local practices and it has no other significance. In Srivaishnava custom, even an unmarried woman can wear a metti, if she has no metarnal uncle to offer later it during her marriage! It all depends on the practices of each community but the aim and intentions are one and the same as explained in the above page.
