Bridal Nath is an enigma. ‘Piche Piche Aunda meri Chal vi Na ai’ This ever so beautiful folk song released in the year 1987 and made legendary by Noor Jehan specifically captures the essence of the Nath or a Laung.
The song is a playful request by a young girl to her lover to help find her ‘Laung’. It has fallen somewhere and she can’t find it. The Gold Nath is precious for the Indian woman.
The Nose ring is one of ‘the’ most important pieces of jewellery in any Indian wedding. Wearing the small Nath or nose stud denotes the fact that a girl has stepped on to ‘womanhood’.
Likewise, the bridal nose ring and its design are one of the most discussed aspects before the wedding.
Any bridal look and makeup are incomplete without the Nath. Hence, we at myMandap bring to you the Top 10 Trendy and Modern Bridal Nath Designs for the perfect Bridal Jewellery Set.

6. The Kundan Bridal Nath
We are talking about the legendary Madhubala from the classic ‘Mughal-E-Azam‘. Remember her nath in the song ‘Mohe panghat pe‘? While it is tough to concentrate on anything else apart from her timeless beauty, nevertheless, one can take cues from her Kundan nath.
For a married woman, her nath or nose jewellery is just as important as her wedding attire. Hence, it needs to be just as exclusive. Who knows, you might want to pass it on to your daughter or daughter-in-law in the future, so it better be able to tell a ‘story’.
7. Bridal Nath with chain
While we are talking about the nath, we need to take just as much care for the chain it dangles from. The chain can be of various designs and patterns. These can be made from a string of beads or a simple sleek gold chain to complement the design.
Not many take note, but the chain in most cases offers the perfect look one needs to complete the entire bridal outfit on the big day. There are also Nath designs that comprise more than one chain, thus making it a statement piece in itself.
8. The Nose Pin Bridal Nath Design
Not all of us might favour the Nath or the Nathiya. Some of us prefer the simplicity of the stud. This comprises using stone or a cluster of stones for the perfect look.
This could include Rubies, diamonds, or any other precious stones of your choice. The main reason for certain brides to opt for the stud is that it compliments her specific face shape, her bridal attire, and her taste.
9. The Sabayasachi Bridal Nath
We all love Sabyasachi and the Sabyasachi bride is the epitome of bridal beauty. Likewise, the jewellery pieces adorned are one of a kind and are designed to enhance the feminity of each woman.
These comprise Pearls and delicate Meenakari work on them that makes them stand out. So, if you are up for this exclusive piece of beauty, be sure to pick just the piece for yourself.

These are surreal and look great with almost any wedding dress. Also, you can club this up with a chain with tiny pearls that make for the perfect bridal look.
The Green Emerald Bridal Nath
We couldn’t get enough of Neeta Ambani’s Green emerald Nath which was the highlight of the event at Akash Ambani’s wedding. The nose ring is comprised of a set of green emeralds.
It was exclusive, pretty, and unique to say the least. While not all of us are from the ‘Ambani clan’ nevertheless, it does not hurt to take inspiration, does it?
The Diamond bridal Nath
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. True and why not? After all, nothing compliments a woman better than the cluster of the most precious stones on Earth. We love the exclusive creation of a row of diamonds along the arc of the nath when it comes to bridal jewellery.
These need to be tiny with just the centre one being a little larger than the rest. A nice sleek chain of tiny pearls in this creation makes for the perfect statement piece
The Stud and Pearl Bridal Nath
Wish to opt for something different from the rest? Well, it is the Stud and Pearl design we are going crazy for. This is all-exclusive for the Millennial bride who likes tradition but in the right amounts.
This pattern comprises a stud or a cluster of stones that are en-chained with a string of tiny pearls to go with it. A perfect go-to for bridal wear that is not over the top yet pretty enough to be bridal wear.
Nose Piercing and adorning with jewellery are one of the oldest Indian practices. Some historians state that piercing a girl’s nose was necessary as it was meant to ‘cool down’ her temperament.
Another theory goes that it is a prelude of pain endurance that womanhood is to bring about in a girl after the onset of her marriage.
Whatever the reasons might be, there is no denying that nose jewellery is an important part of our culture.
Likewise, a bridal nath is important and we need to be able to select the right one for ourselves. The nose jewellery is no longer a symbol of submission, but a statement of choice. So, go out there and flaunt yours for the world to see.
