What to Keep in Mind Before Gifting Your Daughter Indian Bridal Jewelry

Gifting jewelry to the daughter on her wedding day is a heartfelt gesture filled with deep cultural significance, love, and blessings. It blesses the daughter as she starts her new life and celebrates the bond that she shares with her mother. Not only will these pieces adorn her bridal outfit but will continue to remind her of her mother’s love and blessings. But before you pick the pieces, keep the following things in mind -

What does she like?

While picking jewels for your daughter, try to pick pieces that resonate with her personal style and preferences. Your daughter will cherish it and wear it more often if she likes it more. Go for the colors she wears and the material that she prefers. And since no one knows her better than you do, this will be a walk in the park for you.

Pick something timeless

A piece of jewelry that your daughter will forever keep close to her heart can become more memorable if it features a design that never gets old. So, while picking the pieces, make sure you look for less trendy and more timeless. Not only will this add some flair to her wedding outfit but will be her go-to piece whenever she needs to create a perfect look.

And while we’re discussing timeless jewelry, including pieces of heirloom with the others can be a great way to make the gift extra special. By Including heirloom jewelry in the bridal look, your daughter can give her outfit a vintage touch while carrying the blessings of her family members.


The jewels that you’ll gift to your daughter will hold significant sentimental value and will always be something that your daughter remembers you by. So, getting her something specifically for her can make it extra special. Consider engraving her ornaments with her initials or meaningful symbols to make it more meaningful.

Bridal Jewelry is an investment

While picking jewels for your daughter, keep in mind that it’ll act as an asset for her. You’re not only passing on your blessings but also providing her with a resource that will appreciate in value over time and can be used in times of need.

Indian Bridal Jewelry as Your Daughter’s Wedding Gift

Now that we’ve covered the ‘how’, let’s take a look at some pieces that you can gift your daughter which will serve as a great addition to her trousseau.

A Magnificent Maangtika

Starting with the piece of Indian adornment that rests on top of all of the others, the maangtika. The maangtika has a unique charm and the piece manages to take a bride’s outfit to a whole new level.

While choosing the maangtika, keep your daughter’s facial features in mind. If your daughter is a minimal bride, a small and subtle maangtika is the ideal gift for her. Also, keep in mind the colors of her attire and what will team up best with it. Picking a maangtika that features these colors can further adorn your daughter’s bridal attire and give it a cohesive and harmonious look.

A pair of Dangling Earrings

If your daughter is a culturally-rooted bride and is a fan of colors and intricate designs, including a pair of dangling earrings in her bridal trousseau set will be a great decision.

You can’t go wrong with earrings that match her maangtika. This way, she’ll have a jewelry set that features pieces that team up perfectly with each other. Going with pearls and polki is a great option if her wedding outfit is simple and subtle. A bold look can be embellished with rubies and emeralds and a flawless look can be created with ease.

Bangles and Bracelets
