Usually consisting of a set of white and red bangles, the bride’s maternal aunt and uncle present her with the choora on her nuptials morning. The number of bangles relies on the individual preference (a full set can operate all the move up to the turn), but one has opted for an average product comprising of 31 bangles on every arm.
