Types of Indian Jewelleries Every Bride Must Know

Traditional jewellery has a way of completing a bridal look. This is because marriage is a way of celebrating the old tradition and the coming together of two individuals.

There are many of these Indian jewellery every bride must know about, and we are going to be taking a look at them one after the other as well as some of their major characteristics.

  1. Payal

Payal is a piece of bridal jewellery made of silver metal decorated with hanging bells and beads. This ankle bracelet completes a bridal look with much delicacy giving a ringing sound when the bride moves. According to the Indians, it is said that when the bride enters with Payal’s on their feet, it suggests the entry of the Goddess Lakshmi.

  • Hathphool

The hathphool which translates to flower of the hand is a flower-shaped jewel that brings elegance and beauty to the hands of a bride. This jewellery was not popular until the courtesans of the Mughal era used it. From there on in, it became one of the popular jewellery for every Indian culture, and it ranges from simple and styles for the western world, to the heavy and glamorous for wedding occasions.

  • Bridal bracelets and bangles

In India, bridal bands are never complete without multiple bridal bracelets and bangles. This, however, has been given a new dimension as brides now wear bridal bracelets made of diamonds and gold rather than the traditional glass coloured bracelets.

If you have ever seen an Indian love movie, you would know that bangles are part of the country’s rich history with every bride putting on a set of bangles and bracelets that match their outfits. This adds beauty to the collection, and also makes their hands fuller.

  • Nath

A Nath is a nose ring worn on the woman’s left side to add beauty and beauty and essence to their looks. The Nath is said to be a way of paying respect to Parvati, the Goddess of Marriage. Compared to back in the days, the new Nath’s are relatively lighter and easy to wear, and for those who do not want piercings, it can be used as a clip-on and still look as gorgeous as ever.

  • Mangtikka

The mangtikka is a big part of the bridal set in India. This is so because it brings out the beauty in the hair designs. It is placed on the bride’s hairline with a drop of colour which is placed at the centre of the forehead. In India, this represents the holy union of man and wife on a spiritual, emotional, and physical level. This accessory comes in different styles and varieties and is worn by Indian brides s well as other women all over the globe.
