#IndianFashionTrends: Latest Nose Pin Designs and its Significance

Did you know? The trend of wearing Nose Pins and Nose Rings dates back to somewhere around the 16th Century.  Initially women in the Middle Eastern countries started wearing nose pins and Indian women started wearing at the time of Mughal Empire. But why do you think this trend began? Was it just a fashion statement? Well, No.

A lot of theories go behind the designs of nose pins, the position and also the significance of wearing them. But before going into these theories, first things first-

Why is nose pierced?

Well, many scholars believe that Hindu ornaments work more than just a fashion statement. Nose piercing is the second most common type of piercing after Ear Piercing and is unique to Indian Culture, although now, people all across the world, both men and women, have given in to this trend. Scientifically, according to Ayurveda, nostril should be pierced on the left side as that vein is directly related to the female reproductive system, thus in turn, increasing a woman’s fertility and also easing out menstrual pain.

What is the religious importance of wearing Nose Pins?

Many believe that Nose pins are a symbol of a happy married life and hence, they form an integral part of an Indian Wedding. Although today, because of its increasing cool quotient, single girls around the globe also wear them. Wearing nose pins is also considered as a tribute to Parvati, the Hindu Goddess of Marriage.
