Jewellery forms an intrinsic part of a bride’s trousseau and shopping for it is an elaborate affair. Bridal jewellery not only enhances a bride’s beauty but also offers financial security in times of adversity. Motifs on the jewellery
reflect rich tradition and culture which symbolise wealth, prosperity and good luck. In a diverse country like India, bridal ornaments integrate the flavour of religion and region. In the first of a six-part series, adorN displays some typical ornaments that a bride from Maharashtra wears on her D-day.
