↓23: Jhumka Style Maang Tikka

The cute little jhumka is a must-have for every South Asian girl’s jewellery collection, but have you ever seen it hanging on someone’s forehead? Somehow, it looks just as exquisite – if not more so. This style of maang tikka will suit girls with smaller foreheads who wish to keep their tikka within the hairline. Because of its small size, bridesmaids and young girls often prefer the style.


↓22: Angular Maang Tikka

Maang Tikkas are often considered synonymous with round, pendant-shaped jewellery. But with new times come new designs, like this square-shaped maang tikka. Due to the wider design spread, the style will look great on plus-sized girls and women with broad faces. It helps make the face look slimmer and instantly elegant.

They are a great look for women with darker or tanned skin colour – the speciality of South Asian women.


↓20: Handcrafted Floral Tikka

We’ve already discussed the classic floral maang tikka, but in recent years, we’ve seen the classic style get reformed by young designers. Famous jewellery designers work with their clients to create pieces that look too beautiful to be real. Yet they are crafted with real flowers, pearls, and beads to create a fresh and luxurious look. Such maang tikka styles are perfect for functions that require a little more formality than the usual floral jewelry but when you still want to stick to tradition.


↓ 19: Pendant style with One Tier (Maatha Patti)

 One of the year’s hottest trends is the pendant style maang tikka with single-tier or one-chain maatha patti. This delicate style gives an ethereal princess look to a bride with any face structure.
