Origin Of Indian Jewellery:

One the first man who had started making jewellery was from Indus Valley Civilization by 1500 BC. The people of Indus Valley were making gold necklaces and earrings, metallic Bangles and beads necklaces. Men also used to wear beads necklaces and rings.

India is a first country who mined diamond, with some mines dating back 296 BC, and traded them all over the world.

There are many type of jewellery which females wear as a beautiful ornament like bangels, bracelet, necklace, Rings, forehead jewellery, waist belt, hip chain, hair accessories, armpit, anklet, nose ring or pin, and earrings.
