Sleek Single-stringed Maang Tikka

A single stringed maang tikka is a classic piece of jewellery. The best thing about it is that it is neither too simple nor too loud and is just the perfect mix of minimalism and elegance. It's not just a big time fav amongst brides but the unmarried girls too.


Stylish Double-stringed Maang Tikkas

Just like single stringed maang tikka, double-stringed maang tikka also sits beautifully across a bride's forehead, framing her face. The only difference is that it has double strands while the other has one. But both of them are equally pretty.
