Another essential bridal piece of jewellery that looks flattering with your saree. You’ll come across different designs and materials. The most popular are diamond and gold.

Make sure that the type of hair accessory you wear goes in sync with your saree because you don’t want to go overboard with the hairdo.
- Maang Tikas
Maang Tikka is a head jewellery commonly worn by Indian women. It’s a pendant that is fixed on top of your forehead. You’ll find different styles of headpieces that you can style with your ethnic dress. From one-sided maang tikka to multiple chain maatha patti that not only complements your forehead but also your hairstyle.
Loop-style round maang tikka is popular amongst South Indian brides. Traditional nethi chutti embedded with stones, pearls, and diamonds give a divine look.
- Nose Rings
The Indian Bridal look is incomplete without the nose ring. It’s important to choose a nose ring according to your face shape. You can either go for a subtle nose pin or a bigger nose ring if it looks good on you.
South Indian brides love to drape their sarees by accessorizing them with saree belt that adds beauty to your saree and helps you to carry it flawlessly. It’s up to you whether you want to wear the waist jewellery but it gives a composed look.
