Paasa or Jhoomar

While teeka is worn in the center parting, Jhoomar or Paasa is a headpiece that is worn on the side. Inspired from the Mughal Era, it’s slowing making its way into every Bridal Kitty.

Haath Phool

These are ornaments that adorn the hands, where Haath means hands, and Phool means flowers. Typically these are made of kundan, or gold and are embellished with meenakari.


Armlets which embellish the upper arm. South Indian Brides typically wear armlets made of gold, whereas North Indian Brides wear kundan or polka bajubandh.


With your feet being so much in the focus while you are circumambulating around the fire or while you are getting your toe-rings put on, it becomes important to even accessorize your legs. Delicate anklets with tinkling bells that make music every time you walk will most definitely allure.
