As far as I know, in the Dravidan culture the toe rings which is known as Metti in Tamil is a symbol of marriage. Both the Bride and Groom willl have to wear it on the toes of both feet. By culture, the Bride s Metti, is put on the toes by the Bridegroom whereas the Meti on the Bridegroom s toes is put on by the Brother-in-Law. It is said, that in the old days, Indian women can easily recognise a married man by the toe ring on his feet.

Wearing of toe rings is practiced in India. It is worn as a symbol of married state by Hindu women and is called bichiya .They are usually made of silver and worn in pairs on the second toe of both feet.
