Rani Haar is one of the oldest and most flamboyant styles of Indian necklace. This type of necklace has a huge pendant attached to the long chain.

Usually it is made up of gold and is quite heavy in weight. It is long enough to sit around the bust area or even lower than that. Rani haar is never worn alone as it paired with a choker or collar style necklace for the utmost grace. This traditional style of necklace is well suited on tall ladies.

The Multiple Facets of Jewellery Adornment

In Sanskrit, the word for jewellery is ‘aabharan’ that means to admire and protect. Jewellery is thus believed to be worn to take care of and protect our body and sensibilities of mental and physical well-being.

Adorning ourselves in beautiful jewellery and accessories is meant to enhance our beauty and aesthetic appeal. History reveals that, in ancient times doctors would recommend an amulet that can be worn to guard the body from diseases.
Today, magnetic belts are commonly worn to increase the circulation of blood to specific body parts that can help these parts heal.

Gold and many semi- precious stones are considered auspicious and are believed to be tokens of wellness. Adornment does not always need to be elaborate, flamboyant or expensive. Adornment can also be simple. Adornment occurs in tribal areas, in the mountains and in villages where even though the lifestyle is simple, people still consider wearing jewellery significant.

Design characteristics and embellishments are commonly found in all parts of nature and design draws inspiration from this using plants and animals to create stunning jewellery designs that are be used as forms of adornment. We can see adornment and design all around us. For example in the stripes of a zebra, peacock feathers, swans eyes, butterfly wings etc. and all of these designs help us in our design sensibilities.

While adornment has always been an important factor in design with multiple meanings and uses, teamed with comfort, it acts as a personal expression of ourselves.
