Traditional Jewellery of Gujarati Women

A married woman in Gujarat wears Mangal Sutra, bangles, necklaces, earrings and nose rings. Unmarried women wear small balis (loop earrings) and may even get their nose pierced and wear nath (studded nose jewellery). Married women also wear bindi and sindoor. Traditional Gujarati jewellery is heavy, ornate and intricately crafted. Women even wear ornate tassel key rings around their waist.

Dresses For Special Ceremonies

Women wear chaniyacholi or ghagracholi with a kamarbandha. A kamarbandha is a coloured waistband. It may be made out of cloth or in a chain-like jewellery manner. The kamarbandha is worn over the chunni to keep the chunni from flying away.
