A tika is the main symbol of matrimony in India and therefore, considered an auspicious amulet. The bride herself becomes auspicious because by wearing the ornament she becomes immune to the evil eye. Even amongst the poor, a pair of simple earrings, a bangle, an amulet or the marriage thali of gold is mandatory. Synonymous with life, wearing even a little gold is believed to ensure long life.
