North Eastern states of our country are called the paradise unexplored. Assam is one of the North Eastern states which has a rich culture and heritage.

 

The bridal jewellery of Assam is also based on its tribal culture and is close to the natural richness of the state. The flora and fauna of the region are highlighted in its designs and motifs.

 

The gold jewellery is also decorated heavily with ruby, mina, and red, black and green enamels etc...

The ornament is like two shoes which are attached to a floral part and is connected to a chain. Another traditional earring is loka-paro, which is like twin birds that are placed together.
