Long dangling earrings and even studs are preferred by most Indian women, reveals a survey.
A large - scale customer survey done by online ethnic wear site craftsvilla. com has found that when it comes to accessories, Indian women have a preference for earrings - a whopping 39 percent of them.
And 70 percent of these women loved jhumkas, hoops, chandeliers, and dangling clip - ons.
Only 30 percent showed a preference for studs and ear - pins.
This was followed by neck pieces, bindis and bangles in that order - that comprised another 35. 4 percent of women.
The rest of them, 25. 6 percent, chose between pendants, rings or a combination of accessories.
Monica Gupta, co - founder craftsvilla. com, said in a statement: "In our survey, women were given a wide choice to define their favourite fashion accessory.
In India, making a hole in the ear is an elaborate family ritual.
"From a painful process earlier, it has now become much easier.
It's normally the grandparents who supervise this process and ensure that a small gold earring is purchased for the child.
Hence, earrings stay with us from an early age. "
