Bharatanatyam long chain

The resplendence of Indian culture is reflected in the luster of the jewelry (jewellery) used here. Jewelry is one of the important elements in almost all the performing arts in India. This tradition is most evident in the magnificent dance form of Bharatanatyam.

The distinctiveness of the ornaments maintains the tradition of Bharatanatyam. The dancers often embellish themselves with at least ten pieces of the jewellery such as necklaces, chokers, bracelets, waist bands, earrings, nose rings, and three hair ornaments. Featured in this video is the Bharatanatyam long chain, worn around the neck.
