maangtika in fashion

Lifestyle 22/03/2024

You must have seen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Jodha Akbar sporting a “maangtika”. Such stunning traditional hair accessories are a latest craze among women. Jewelers are currently creating such innovative hair pieces. From lively curls to sophisticated bouffant, all hairstyles are being touched up with gold, silver and even sparkling precious and semi-precious stones. Jewelers are busy making these hair ornaments which prove to be perfect embellishment for hair. In this market, you will even find the very Mughal era “jhaptas” or “jhoomars” (to be wornnext to the hair parting) in gold and covered with diamonds and elaborate “benis” to decorate the braid. These ornaments are largely used in Indian marriages. Even small gold crowns are becoming popular among the hair accessories besides the gold and diamond hair pins.

Maangtikas in gold and diamonds have also become quite the rage. This piece of jewelry which is considered almost mandatory for the bride is now also a favourite with the bride’s close relatives. They are also wearing these pieces along with the bride. The utility of the maangtikas is not confined to the weddings only but it goes beyond and can also be teamed with Western attair after the big weeding day. According to the modern fashion and jewelry designers, a maangtika looks more effective when the neck and ears are left bare. It adds to the gorgeous and feminine look of the bride. These days even the gold neck-pieces and the pendants can be used artistically to dress up the hair in a way that will attract gazes.
