- sindoor in her hair
- a bindi on her forehead
- a nose ring or nose pin
- a gold necklace
- toe rings
I consistently wear most of these, especially when I go out in India. (A friend of mine shared that for the sindoor she just uses red lipstick, and it works…so that’s what I do too!)
And, yes, for those of you who don’t know me personally or haven’t seen me in awhile, I do have my nose pierced (I’ve had it pierced for 3 years).
When in India, I wear a rather large diamond and gold nose pin that my hubby bought me. (It is a symbol of how much your husband loves you, so the bigger it is the more he loves ya!)
But now that I’m in the US for a while, I feel like I get some funny looks and even comments about my “piercing”.
