Unlike the weddings of the West where brides are seen adorning very little, if any, jewellery, in countries like Bangladesh and India, the bridal gold jewellery plays a major role in the planning of a wedding. Traditionally, gold ornaments were worn by brides as a sign of high status and prestige. Gold ornaments provided and still provides brides with security due to its hyped up price. It is a valuable asset that can be used in times of need, although, in most Indian or Bangladeshi families bridal jewellery will rarely be ever sold.

Gold jewelleries are not just a social symbol of riches and status but it is indeed one of the most widely used metals for Southeast Asian wedding jewels. Although gold jewelleries were traditionally yellow in colour only, long gone are the days when a South East Asian bride will brace the world on her wedding wearing plain yellow gold. With advanced technology, globalization and trendy designs a Bangladeshi, Indian or Pakistani Bride has a lot of options to choose from when it comes to her wedding jewellery. There are many different colours, designs and accessories to choose from when it comes to deciding on a gold jewellery design at a gold shop. Buying gold for one’s wedding at the same time became that much more complicated and difficult with the stupendous amount of designs, cuts, shapes and colours to choose from.

The fascination with gold in India and Bangladesh cannot be explained here in this post but what this post will help you with is give you the best collection of bridal jewellery designs at your disposal. Bring a girl myself, I understand how difficult it is to happily and fully decide on one’s bridal jewellery. These vast amount of photographs of gold bridal jewelleries with surely help in that regard.

In the sub-continent, brides at least wear two sets of gold necklaces, usually one from the bride’s side and one from the groom’s side. Most families even let the bride decide whether she wants a long necklace called a shithahaar or short necklace or choker type neck-piece. Usually brides wear one long gold designer necklace and one short necklace or choker. In this way the neck to the belly is adorned by beautiful gold. Necklaces are not the only types of jewellery worn by Indian and Bangladeshi brides. Heavy earrings, intricately designed tikli jewellery (a piece of jewellery worn at the center parting of the hair which hangs from the head to the forehead) and other hair jewelleries like braid ornament and bun ornament. Brides wear dozens of gold bangles which come in different thickness and design. Even the ankles and waist are sometimes adorned with gold jewelry.

Meenakari Bridal Gold Jewellery

Meenakari is a method of gold jewellery decoration with different coloured enamel paints. These enamel paintings are usually used to highlight or emphasise a part of the gold ornament. Such gold painting is done in combination with precious and semi-precious stones, kundans and gems. Meenakari gold designs usually tend to use bright colours like greens and blues and reds and these gold paintings take inspiration from the nature. Motifs in shapes of flowers and plants are common in this type of gold design. Meenakari designed golds are also worn in weddings. This post provides the most beautiful collection of bridal meenakari gold jewellery.

Kundan and Gold Wedding Ornaments:

Kundan keshri is the oldest type of jewellery which originated in India and has been worn. Kundan Gold jewelleries are known to have come from the Mughal Dynasty in India. Kundan keshri is a unique style of gold jewellery making where a gem is set with gold foil in between stones. There is however, some confusion between kundan and polki jewellery. In actuality both kundan and polki jewellery styles may be referred to as kundan jewellery. Kundan gold jewellery is made of two types of stones (also called polka). One is uncut diamonds and another is glass stone / polka. The kundan designs made of uncut diamonds tend to be more expensive and are called Polki designs and the ones made of glass stones or polki are generally referred to as kundan designs. But in reality both are kundan designs.

In the recent past, kundan jewellery has been widely used in bridal jewellery like bridal long necklaces and choker necklace. With kundan the bridal necklace can have a bought of colour which a simple gold jewellery lacks. Gorgeous photographs of kundan wedding jewelleries are provided below.
