Beautiful jewelry, lovely colors!
I love Indian jewlery. My friend Kym has some lovely family pieces.When Hawaiian Queen Kapiolani visited Queen Victoria, a gift of a gold bracelet was presented to the island majesty on which her name was depicted in olde English script. Today "Hawaiian Heirloom Bracelets" adorn the wrists of many women here. Often they display the names of their children. It is common to wear more than one - I enjoy several. They show my cultural attachment to these islands I love. Aloha & Namaste!
Nice Indian jewerly ! I have a pic about Spanish jewerly. We have Kalevala jewerly here in Finland but I don't have any pics a´bout them :(

Thanks for the explanation about the black beads too. Good shot
I like the colourfull clothes more.
magnifique bijoux, et une belle tradition qui doit faire plaisir à la mariéesplendid jewellery, and a nice tradition which must please the bride
that's a beautiful mangalsutra... who is the lady modeling for you?
so i guess the mangalsutra is a symbol of respect
Nice colourful photo!
Beautiful jewelry. I like the colors in the Mangalsutra.
I'd never gotten a close up look at a mangalsutra before -- at least not and known that's what it was. That's handy information to have, no doubt!Funny you should say shots of jewelry from around the world... my shot is also of jewelry from India. Or at least made by a person from India.Great shooting!
The zari border is complementing the jewellery beautifully :)
Very nice composition!
Very pretty jewelry, I like the dress, too!
It is so eyecatching against the dress.
Lovely design and colors!
Beautiful... and a good information!
So it's like the wedding ring here..Do they wear it everyday or have a simple one for everyday life?In any case it's very nice I like the gold pearls too.
My questions were the same as Marie Noyale. Do they wear it all days like our ring.It's a wonderful tradition, I love that it's colorful to match the sari. It reflects the joy of the wedding day.
Nice bright colors. Gorgeous!
Yes Marie and Catherine, the mangalsutra is worn everyday.
Great......the one with the golden beads is called the Mohanamala and tiny golden beads is called the Moogmala in our community!
This is beautiful, such lovely jewelry. I remember as a child passing by an Indian store on my way home from school. I always marveled at the things that were in the window and I remember the jewelry. I loved the earings especially and saved up for a very long time for a pair. My allowance was very small but eventually I was able to purchase them and I wore them often.
