Jewelry has not only traditional and aesthetic value, but is also considered as a source of security in times of financial crisis. The amount of jewelry owned by a woman also signifies her status and adds to the riches in her name. Jewelry has covered its journey since the beginning as an evolving art form. The beauty of Indian jewelry lies in the uniqueness of its design and the efforts of the workmanship involved in creating the intricate designs. Jewelry presented as gift to Indian women at the time of marriage is called 'stridhan' which refers to the wealth of women. Though there is a lot of difference in jewelry designs adorned by women of different states in India, but some basic jewelry pieces like maangtika, earrings, nose rings, necklace, mangalsutra and bangles adorned by women in India, especially the married ones, still remain the same.
