This one’s a classic and has been a favourite over the years. This design was worn by a lot of brides in 2017 making it one of the most popular choice. The design mostly consists of pretty pearl and polki accents adding a lot of elegance to your bridal look.

A traditional adornment from the Marwari community, this stunning spherical maang tikka is usually crafted in meenakari with stones and diamonds. We believe a borla brings a touch of royalty to the Rajput bride.
