Kaleereas have been part of the bridal accessory since ancient times. Once they were the only part of Punjabi traditions but now kaleeras are the new found love of brides across all cultures in India. Suspended from the choora or the bridal bangles, kaleeras come in all shapes and designs and are now even customized with intricate detailing for the bride. As the old saying goes Kaleeras signify abundance for the new bride.
An old wive’s tale implies that if the bride-to-be shakes her kaleera-laden wrists on unmarried friends and cousins and if the kaleere or a part of the kaleere embellishments fall on anyone then that person is supposedly getting married soon. Well, it’s hard to say true or not but it is a fun ceremony.
Bollywood celebs too have not only donned but customized kaleeras for their wedding like Katrina Kaif whose custom-made kaleeras featured handmade messenger doves and words from Bible such as Cleo, Elysian has written on them. Priyanka Chopra personalized hers with a picture from her roka, and a couple of other little details from their love story.
