A lot of tiny elements make the bride more beautiful on her wedding day. In every type of wedding, there is something special and unique that we, in this multicultural world, can adapt and add to our existing stuff. So brides-to-be, here are 10 types of bridal jewellery and accessories that you can choose from! You’re going to look stunning on your big day!
The Maharashtrian nath has been famous since the Peshwa era and still holds a lot of importance for the bride who is about to enter marriagehood. It’s traditionally a combination of basra pearls, emeralds and gold, also known as Brahmani nath.
POPxo Recommends: Marathi Malabar Gold Nath (Rs 14,711)
It’s the Rajasthani take on maangtikkas and looks like a bell-shaped piece of jewellery. It generally has chains attached on either sides called sheesh phool. A lot of celebrities have flaunted this look and it looks graceful and elegant. This multicoloured one will go with every bridal outfit and looks absolutely amazing!
POPxo Recommends: Prita Multicoloured Alloy Borla (Rs 308)
Also known as a passa, it’s a head accessory that is worn on the side of the head. It is generally worn by Muslim brides but since it has been around for a lot of years and has been adding that extra dash of luck for the going-to-be bride, a lot of women are wearing this nowadays. Try this one with green hangings for your big day, won’t you?
POPxo Recommends: Anjali Jain Golf Pearls & Green Stones Passa (Rs 7,200)
Worn on the braid of most South Indian brides, this is a long hair clip that can be made of pure gold or just a metal that matches all the other jewellery. It could be stone-studded or just embossed. This adds grandeur to the look when the bride isn’t planning to cover the head.
POPxo Recommends: Multicoloured Polki Braided Hair Clips (Rs 3,015)
Jhumkis look so traditional and gorgeous. These ones, in particular, come with three small jhumkis that add that much more of a bridal touch. We’re in love with these. Aren’t you as well?
POPxo Recommends: Gold-Plated Ethnic Hanging Jhumkis (Rs 499)
Primarily worn by brides at a Hindu or a Sikh wedding, these red and white bangles are seen on many married women in India. The bride wears this for 40 days (or more) as a sign of being newly married. It’s surely a significant token. Pretty, isn’t it?
POPxo Recommends: Red Bridal Chura With Stones (Rs 885)
A beautiful hand ornament that has been historically significant since the Mughal era, is what completes a bengali bride’s paraphernalia. It’s generally bright gold, where five finger rings are chained to the a wrist band with a prominent motif sitting at the back of the hand. Absolutely gorgeous!
POPxo Recommends: Gold Plated Ratanchur With Five rings (Rs 1,700)
This waist belt is worn fondly by brides all over India. It is that ornament which defines the waistline beautifully and can be just a string of pearls, gold chains or even fabric. It highlights the waist and also keeps the saree or lehenga in place. This one here is so delicate and beautiful! Get it already!
POPxo Recommends: Gold Plated Multiple Chain Belt (Rs 7,980)
A baju band or an armlet has been worn by kings and queens for many many years. There are different versions of this couplet which adorns the arms of brides in many different Hindu cultures. Here is a traditional one but there are a lot of modern variations available to suit your style.
POPxo Recommends: Stone Work Gold Plated Traditional Baju Band (Rs 1,500)
This chaand-shaped maangtikka will look mesmerizing on every single bride. The white stones and pearl hangings have made us fall in love with it all the more. Get yourself this one and dazzle all the guests on your wedding!
