Since ancient times, women in India have been adorning their ears with earrings for ornamental or spiritual reasons. Over the years, the tradition of earrings in India has strengthened and today it is customary for women in most communities to have their ears pierced after birth.
Motikaan literally translates to "big earrings" in Marathi. Brides wear heavy, gold earrings that are embellished with colourful jewels, beads and pearls. The earrings will actually be large studs as opposed to dangling earrings, but this practice has evolved in modern times. Kaan(Big) earrings, in particular, refer to the use of pearls in the jewelry.
The traditional types of earrings are revered for weddings and other traditional affairs. Contemporary designs of Indian jewellery give the modern woman the benefit of displaying chic new world art and being able to accessories more casual outfits. In a Marathi bride’s ears, you will always see lovely ear cuffs that are studded with pearls. They are usually golden in colour in order to further beautify the ears. Karanphool Jhumka is originally from Rajasthan (Karanphool meaning a flower for the ear). It is usually set with uncut diamonds, pearls and cabochon rubies. While making these pieces two strands of pearls are taken around the ear to support the weight of the jewel. The projection at the rear is also for the purpose of attaching it to the hair to minimise the weight on the ear and to give a stunning look.
In ancient times, to make room for more ornaments, the ear was pierced in four places -- the lobe, the inner ear, the outer part of the middle of the ear and the top of the ear. The most famous jewel for the ear in the north has been the Karanphool, with the flower motif in the centre of the ornament. Sometimes the Jhumka in the shape of a bell has also been separately worn. It was only during the Moghul period, that the Karanphool Jhumka evolved as a single jewel for the ear, each region having its own special embellishment added to the basic design.
