  1. Choora

    A Choora is a set of bangles that are usually red and white, sometimes the red bangles are replaced with another color, but they are usually only two colors. They are worn by an Indian bride on her wedding day. This is a tradition originating in Punjab, North India. It is a favoured tradition in Hindu families, Sikhs also follow the tradition, although it is primarily a Hindu tradition along with Sindhoor and mangalsutra. Choorae may contain different coloured bangles in various combinations, but the most common combination is red and white. The choora is worn by the bride for 40 days from the day she puts it on and on the 40th day only her husband can remove it for her. She can wear other choora after that for as long as she likes in any colour. The choora ceremony is held on the morning of the wedding. The bride's maternal uncle and aunt give her a set of choorae. Nowadays, the bride often wears 7 or 9 bangles. According to tradition, the bride should ideally wear the choora for at least a year. It is now normal for the bride to wear her choora for a month and a quarter. The bangles range in size according to the circumference of the top of the forearm and the wrist end so that the set fits neatly.
