5 Traditional Jewellery Essentials For An Indian Bride

By  | 

Indians are known for their fetish for jewellery, and the weddings are a testimony of their love for Gold and everything glitzy and sparkling. All Indian brides love to adorn beautiful jewellery, and it is considered a sign of good fortune. Necklaces, ear rings, and finger rings are common, but there are some not-so-common traditional jewelry pieces that can take the style quotient to a whole new level. These jewelry pieces are pretty much in vogue, and can add a lot of elegance to your look. So, here are our chosen 5 traditional jewelry pieces that must figure on a bride’s shopping list:

Maang tikka

The good old maang tikka has never really moved out of the fashion scene. It beautifully embellishes the forehead, and makes the bride look pretty as a picture. Brides with a broader forehead can choose a larger maang tikka, while those with a smaller forehead can go for a smaller tikka.
Nose ring

From a small stud to an elaborate piece with an attached string connecting it to the ear ring, the nose ring can take many forms. A traditional Indian bridal look cannot be complete without a nose ping or a nose ring.

Anklets and toe rings

Traditional anklets and toe rings are primarily made of silver, and are an essential part of the traditional bridal attire. They are symbolic of holy matrimony, and look extremely tasteful and elegant.

Waist band or kamarbandh

If a bride is planning to wear a saree for the wedding, then a kamarbandh or a waist band can enhance the beauty of the torso, and add some glamour and panache to the bridal attire.

Bangles, “Chooda”

No, we are not talking of those gold bangles, and diamond bracelets. The traditional bangles known as “chooda” comes in shades of pink and red, and is treated as the symbol of a newly married woman in many parts of India. These vibrant colors of “chooda” can do wonders to your look.
