Why do Indian women wear nose rings? (Part 2)

Married women often wear nose rings of moderate size, harmoniously decorated. And nose piercings now become their separation. Some even cleverly connect nose and ear piercings, forming a unique decoration on the face.

Depending on the locality, the custom of wearing nose rings is also immeasurably transformed. In southern India, the bride is often attached to the nose of a small pierced gemstone, under the left nostril is also wearing piercings made of pearl and also wears rings on the toes. Particularly northern women wear large nose rings and use a small gold wire connected to earrings, creating mysterious beauty.

In addition, married women also wear a small bell in the leg to enhance beauty, ward off evil spirits and prevent husband from doing “bee and butterflies”.

According to Hinduism, a woman’s breath will endanger her husband’s health when they are in frequent contact. If the woman wears nose piercing, it is thought that the toxic air will be hindered with the power of heavy metal contained in the sacred “nath”. However, this is only a common superstitious spiritual view of the Assembly of devotees. In fact, nose piercing is commonly used in India but also only for the highest purpose of beauty for women.

How do women make up in India

In South Asia, sari is the most traditional and popular wedding dress. Indian and Pakistani brides often wear red sari on their wedding day. The traditional wedding ceremony of these two countries is very rich. Wedding dresses are also brilliant, colorful. Indian brides often wear a lot of different jewelry.

Makeup of Indian women

Indians believe that women must use jewelry and makeup to be loved by their husbands. Moreover, jewelry and makeup are also a way for Indian women to show that they are married, such as wearing nose rings or a lipstick mark in the middle of the forehead.

Once upon a time, in a wedding, when the parents of the girl is too poor and can not afford enough jewelry for children, they can use henna to replace gold jewelry with elaborate patterns. It is also said that the more dark nails the branch uses, the more the bride will be loved by her mother-in-law.
