"DEJHAROO" a lovely Kashmiri Ornament...

Kashmiri women generally love jewellery,"Dejharoo" is the typical Kashmiri ornament that comprises of a pair of gold pendants that hang on a long gold chain which passes through holes in the ears.Dejharoo symbolises a married woman much like the "mangal sutra".

The above pictures are of Kashmiri friends of mine, the mother above is wearing a "dejharoo" with a pendant which is much heavier and elaborate, I came to know she got her inner ears pierced when she was a child whereas the daughter is wearing one which is much more delicate and has just got her ears pierced recently when she got married.

I am amazed to see the ear-ornament ,its awesome.I think one needs to pierce her ears for this , is this worn on both ears or on one as I think its very painful to pierce that part of the ear.At bigger age I dont know how one tackles this pain
