The intricately fashioned broad bangle brings prosperity to the married couple and invokes blessings for their long life. Covering only the front of the wrist, it is hooked together with fine chains, thus symbolising the multifaceted nature of marriage. It is also symbolic of seeking divine guidance for the couple through good times and bad.
The bangle, also a symbol of humility, is handed over to the Bodhu by a barber’s wife during the Dian Mangula Puja to invoke the Goddess and seek her blessings for a blissful marital life.
A testament to the skill of the region’s craftsmen, the intricately designed chandelier-like earrings are fashioned out of gold.
Traditionally, it is believed that the earrings suggest the status and prestige of the Bodhu's paternal home.
