Opulent Tibetan Wedding Finery


As wearing gold and precious stones is considered auspicious for Tibetan brides, jewelry is a main aspect of the Tibetan wedding trousseau.

The groom presents his bride with her wedding gowns and jewelry, including bracelets, rings, the bazhu headdress and a silver gawu amulet, the day before the wedding.

The bride wears a gown with or without sleeves, depending upon the season, with a colorful apron at the waist and an abundance of gold, silver, bronze, aluminum, coral, agate, pearl, mother-of-pearl and xylonite jewelry. It makes a striking impression against her colorful wool and otter fur outfit.
