Every part of India has its own style of gold jewellery that’s a bride must have in her trousseau. Assamese gold jewellery designs are typically inspired by local flora and fauna as well as household items and musical instruments. While they were traditionally gold-plated, today, most Assamese brides prefer solid gold jewellery designs. Let’s look at some of the traditional designs that are popular even today.
Assamese brides wear neckpieces of varying lengths with their mekhla chadar. Each piece has its own name and significance. The Galapota or Golpota is a choker necklace with engraved floral designs while the Pepa, another short chain length neckpiece takes inspiration from musical instruments. If you’re far from Assam, you may find it difficult to get authentic designs. But, there are many similar gold jewellery designs available.
For example, you could consider the Madaya Mudhra Gold Necklace or the Peacock Plumes Necklace. Another popular design is the Kerumoni. This design is celebrated for its vibrancy. And lastly, there’s the Loka Paro – a beaded necklace with an enameled pendant.
Named after one of Assam’s many musical instruments, the Dhol Biri is another popular design. As the name suggests, the design is inspired by the dhol. It is one of the oldest traditional Assamese jewellery designs. The Hawa Jharokha Necklace is a modern variant of this type of Assamese wedding jewellery.
Popular Bangle Designs
Gold bangles are an essential part of an Assamese bride’s jewellery box. These bangles are known as Muthi kharu. This type of wedding jewellery can be described as a solid, sturdy gold bracelet crafted from pure gold. The bangle’s design gives it the appearance of a cuff style bangle. Unlike the neckpieces, these bangles do not include gemstones.
The Lipsa Rang Gold Bangle and the Prachal Bangle take inspiration from this type of Assamese jewellery. Alternatively, you can get the look with a stack of lighter bangles like the Divine Gold Bangle Set (Product Code: BSANDAAAAABPJD) or a pair of the Urvi Gold Bangles on the Finaura gold jewellery design finder.
Earrings For The Assamese Bride
No bridal jewellery set is complete without a pair of earrings. Assamese brides wear large earrings on their wedding day. The traditional designs are known as kopo Phool and Loka paro. These are colourful designs that are traditionally hand made. The ornament could look like twin birds or two shoes connected to a floral unit by a delicate chain.
Designs like the Dhyeya Drop earrings and the Afreen drop earrings take inspiration from these designs. You could also look at gold jewellery designs such as the Paraj Nivara Gold Jhumka for bridal jewellery.
Her Crowning Glory
A matha pathi gives a facelift to Assamese wedding jewellery. Pieces such as the Ubika Mudhra Gold Mang Tikka and the Raadhi Mudhra Gold Mang Tikka are quite popular. Alternatively, you could look at lighter designs like the Dimisha Mudhra Gold Mang Tikka or the Vaarida Mudhra Gold Mang Tikka.
