Traditionally the choora consists of 21 bangles in red/maroon, ivory/white. The colors represent prosperity and the set of bracelets are a recognized symbol of a woman’s marital status and that she is a newlywed.

They are gifted by the bride’s maternal uncle and aunt (Mama and Mami). Before adorning the bride’s wrists, the bangles are purified in milk and rose petals on the day of the ceremony.

Historically brides wore the choora for one year, however many are opting to wear them for 40 days, as the bracelets start to fade and can interfere with modern life – work, activities etc.
