Ugadi, which celebrates the beginning of the Hindu New Year, is not just about the rituals. It also includes dressing up and accessorising yourself while also eating all the tasty food made on this special occasion. During the season, girls and women of Karnataka predominantly wear silk half sarees, skirts and blouses but also give utmost importance to traditional jewellery. Speaking of which, here are six traditional ornaments inspired from Parvathi from Paaru and Amulya from Gattimela that must be worn this festive season.
A maang tikka is a traditional piece of jewellery usually worn for cultural events. It is a center-piece attached to a chain which is then pinned into the hair. The traditional maang tikka worn by women in Karnataka is usually of pure gold, just like the one sported by Mokshitha Pai in this picture.
