Indian Jewelry is incomplete without Jhumkas.They are large size chandelier earing in circular or conical bell shaped.Jhumkas are available in gold,silver,gemstone,oxidized,pearl.....goes on..

Traditional jhumkas are made in gold.They may be single or multi layered.

Jhumkas are used for the traditional dance form barathanatyam as well.It will have an ear chain called maattal that is attached to earing and worn over the ear and fixed to the hair

Some of the other options available are Hoop Jhukas,Kashmiri jhumkas.

I don't want to get some pics from the internet and post it here..hence a picture of my jhumka collection.Planning to buy some more when i visit India this time.
