A wedding is a special occasion. In the most literal sense, it is a union of two special people. We do believe that every day is special, but weddings are definitely more special. Wedding jewellery is always bought with consideration. The Indian bridal jewellery set compromises of many lovely pieces. It is not limited to a dazzling necklace or decadent earrings. One of these regal pieces is a Bridal Tikka or a Maang Tikka.
The word Maang is an Indian word that means the beautiful junction of the partition of hair. A Bridal Tikka is a long and slender piece of jewellery worn in the parting of the hair and onto the forehead. The piece usually consists of a beautiful motif that rests on the forehead, with an elongated chain for the support that is fixed in the partition of the hair.
A Bridal Tikka symbolises many things. It is a symbol of the alliance between the bride and the groom. Some say it wards off the evil eye. The Hindu tradition also believes that it grants one wisdom as they enter a new chapter of their life.
