Earring components may be made of any number of materials, including metal, plastic, glass, precious stone, beads, wood, bone, and other materials. Designs range from small loops and studs to large plates and dangling items. The size is ultimately limited by the physical capacity of the earlobe to hold the earring without tearing. However, heavy earrings worn over extended periods of time may lead to stretching of the earlobe and the piercidng.
The maang tikka is a prime accessory for brides. It is designed in such a way that it rests on the sixth chakra of the forehead, as told in Hindu mythology and represents the third eye, or the power of the soul. The forehead’s center, where the maang tikka is placed, also signifies one’s ability to control emotions, and the power of concentration. The vintage appeal of this accessory has made it extremely popular, not only in India but across the world.
