Pictures galore
Indian bridal jewelry.
In addition to the necklace and earrings, this lovely model is wearing:
Maang tikka (also mang tika or mang tikka). It is the part that extends across the center part of the hair and dangles over the forehead.
Jhumar (also Jhoomar)- the dangling bit on the side of the head/hair. From what I read, this was a Muslim tradition but became popular with non-Muslim brides.
Hathphool (also called panja) is the bracelet that connects to a ring. There are many variations including ones that extend to all fingers thumb, just the four fingers, just 3 fingers, 2 fingers, or the one finger as shown here.
Not worn on the model is a bajuband which is an upper armband. They can look like bangles or they can have dangling jewels and look very delicate. Many brides seem to like to wear a collection of bangle bracelets as well.
If the maang tikka had parts that went along the edges of the hairline, it would be called a shringar patti.
