Traditional Jewellery Guide for the Sindhi Bride

From waist to forehead and ornate arm ornaments, a Sindhi bride's jewellery trousseau is crafted for every aspect of her look.

The Sindhi community is known for its sharp business acumen, lavish living and adherence to strong traditions that are influenced by Hindu and Sufi factors. Spread across the globe, they have made their name in diverse fields and have the affluence and visibility to influence trends in the world of fashion and style. All these traditional and contemporary factors can be seen in their jewellery designs where gold and diamonds reign supreme.

Sindhi brides layer on multiple exquisite pieces with charm and finesse owing to the decades-old traditions that have been passed down the generations. From a dainty nath to a striking maang tikka, one can always count on a modern Sindhi bride to fuse two distinctly different elements in her own unique way.

So, if you’re a Sindhi bride aiming for a traditional look on your big day, here’s a quick jewellery guide to help you put together a stunning collection.

Similar to the Punjabi bride’s nath design, the sindhi nath is also exquisitely simple and comprises a gold hoop and a chain that is hooked in the bride’s hair. However, in some cases, a bride often chooses to amp up their look with a nath that features floral motifs.
