Maharashtrian bride often wears a set of 2 pichodi bangles at each wrist, in additional to green and pearl bangles, to adorn her arms for the wedding ceremony. Pichodi bangles are thin, gold bangles often made with a high-quality gold (24 karat) with a copper base for sturdiness. The bangles can be intricately decorated with religious motifs or floral and animal figures. #Bridal #jewellery #Mahasrashtra
A traditional Maharashtrian thushi necklace is based on the traditional styles of Kolhapur, in southwest Maharashtra. The necklace is known for its lightweight feel, which is useful considering the bride is wearing quite a lot of gold jewelry on her wedding day. A Kolhapur thushi will always have a dora (string) to tie the golden balls of the necklace together.
