A typical big, fat Indian wedding is characterized essentially by shiny clothes, gaudy and sparkly jewellery and a whole lot of inexplicable ancient traditions.
Jewellery designs are unique and often quite exclusive to specific jewellery designers in the country, where the exclusivity depends largely upon regions, old traditions, family heirlooms and somewhat on the latest trends; it is a creative, artistic fusion of the old and the new.
