Nath or the nose ring is a beautiful ornament worn by the Indian Bride as well as the Asian Bride. It is a nose ring worn especially by the bride and after marriage. This ornament has special sanctity to go with it. It is not just an ornament worn by the bride but depicts the virginity of the bride. Nasal ornaments are assumed to be the most seductive ornament and has a connection with the sexual reflexes.Nasal ornament like a big round nath makes a bride look pretty and sensuous.
A nath is depicting a bride’s virginity and hence is not supposed to be worn before marriage by the Asian girls. It is highly believed that the wedding ornaments be worn only upon getting married in the Asian society. However to the contrary girls in Asia or West are following this trend. All the girls want to look pretty and glamorous and hence without knowing the sanctity of the nath they wish to simply ape the look.
