People can plan months together for this d-day which is worth the time and energy that is invested in it.

Rajasthani Bridal Jewellery:

Think about Rajasthan, Think Rajwada style! The all royal look strikes our mind when we think about rajasthan jewellery. All the intricate details reflect the life of royalty. Every jewellery element is rich reflecting the unfathomable aristocratic feel. The heavy necklace made of gold which is overlaid with precious gemstones steals the show. This choker kind of royal necklace is the main feature of the rajasthani bride. The rani har, the payal, the choora, the nathni, the aarsi and the rakhdi are also intricately detailed with gold and gemstones without which this look is incomplete. Want to have a Rajwada feel??? Try the Rajasthani look for your wedding!

Punjabi Bridal Jewellery:

Most of the north indian bridal looks have a similar designs, yet there are striking differences among them all. The one which sets apart a punjabi bride is the “Kaleere” which is attached to the bride’s choora. A Kaleere is dome shaped dangling ornaments made of lightweight material. These make the bride’s hands look completely filled. The other regular elements of a punjabi bride are the maang tika, the choora, the nath, the rings, the rani haar and the gold bangles.

South Indian Bridal Jewellery:

Jewellery for the south indian bride is more sophisticated and more neat. Inspired by the temple jewellery, every piece has a tremendous effort put in which makes every element look as a disciplined art work . The bride is wears a long haar and a short haar which is intricately detailed. The paapidi billa (the maang tikka), the vaddanam (waist band),  the vankeelu which is the south indian version of the bajuband, the payal and not to forget the gajre which makes the bride look complete.

Gujarti Bridal Jewellery:

Gujarati brides sport a completely different yet elegant look. It reflects the rich tradition and culture they follow. The main feature of a Gujarati bride is theGala no har”, the heavy necklace. Another ornament that brings in a striking difference is the “kaan ki butti” which are the heavy earrings. The others are the poncho (bracelet with extended chains leading to rings in every finger of the bride), the chandlo and maang tikka for the forehead, the payal for the feet, the bajuband embellishing her arms and the kamarband decking her hips. And not to forget the Bangadi which are the bangles. The gujarati jewellery is dominated by gemstones mostly.

This is not the end of our list. More is yet to come!
