Indian Wedding Jewellery
Mix and Match Indian Wedding Jewellery for the Bride:
An Indian bride is an assortment of different accessories and Jewellery. While rings (beenti) and bangles (Kada) are a common combination, a typical Indian bride will most probably go for the “Haathphool”. This designs has a couple of chains attached between the rings and the bangles which spread over the Bride’s hand as an exquisite ornament. Similarly, anklet (Pazeb) and “Pungpan” (Variation of haathphool for feet) are worn by an Indian bride, especially in Rajasthani themed wedding by the Bride.
A Diversified Indian Wedding Jewellery: Indian Waistband
One of the most intricate and sought after bridal Jewellery is the “Kandora” – a waistband with bells for understanding. It is the heart and soul of any Indian bridal wear. Anklets with bells, also known as “Todhe” are also a unique Indian Bridal Jewellery and have a customary variation as well. A Rajasthani bride is not complete without “Anguda” – finger rings for the toe. These specified ornaments have intrigued people, especially women all over India, so much that with specific customizations to them, they have been adopted by almost every region of India for Bridal Accessory. So what was once only known as Rajasthani Bridal Jewellery has come to be known as Indian Bridal Jewellery?

With diversified cultures in India, there comes a variety of head ornaments. One of such which is most popular and has its origins from South India is the “Nethi Chutti.” It has similarity to a Maang tikka or the Maatha Patti but is different in the sense that it covers the whole head with chains. The chains are mostly gold with an embedded jewel in the center. It has a multitude of colors, as well as design variations.

But without the Nethi Chutti or the Kandora or even the Haathphool, it all seems a little dull. These ornaments bring out the beauty within and enhance the Bride’s look.
