The significance of Nose Rings in Indian Culture and Weddings

Nose piercing has their origin in the Middle East which was introduced to India during the Mughal rule. As the nose ring is now considered a fashion accessory women of all religions in India get their nose pierced.  Nose rings worn on a daily basis are tiny and delicate, unlike their bridal counterparts which are huge and elaborate.

According to Ayurveda nose piercing has a lot of medical benefits, one reason why the majority of women get left nostril pierced. As it is believed that the left nostril has an association with female reproductive organs getting a nose pierced can ease menstrual and childbirth pains. Some women get both sides of the nose pierced (this is common in rural or tribal parts of India) so, it is quite common to see the right nostril or even the septum pierced in India.
