By referring to the bangles as ‘rainbow-tinted circles of light’, the poet indicates to the various colours of bangles that are shiny and resembling a circle of light. This is a good metaphor used to highlight the happiness and prosperity attached with the bangles.

The poet Sarojini Naidu refers to bangles as ‘rainbow-tinted circles of light’ in the open The Bangle Sellers. She uses ‘rainbow-tinted’ to highlight the variety in colour of the bangles. ‘circles of light’ is used to throw light upon the material of bangle–glass, which reflects light through it.
