This is their traditional matha patti. It is made of gold, is stringy and the added pearls and gems accentuate its beauty. It is used to decorate the center parted hairstyle of the bride.
This delicate haar which is a result of supremely fine craftsmanship sits elegantly on the neck of the bride. It has a flat base like a paati and stands out from the rest of her jewelry.
The nath plays a very significant role in a Bengali wedding. The size of the nath dictates the status of the bride. The bigger the nath the higher the status. A traditional nath is usually decorated with beads along with a few beads hanging from it as well.
The gold Bengali choker is broad in size but short so that they don’t reach the collar bone of the bride. Comfort is must!
This long haar made of gold and gems with a floral inspired pendant. It hangs gracefully and usually goes down till the waist of the bride. Needless to say how gorgeous it look!
