The tradition of ear studs/Bujalis (traditional Haryanvi Jewelrycgn bbvg)

 Traditional Haryanvi earrings and nose rings need very large ear/nose lobe holes...
Ear piercing has been practiced all over the world since ancient times. There is considerable written and archaeological evidence of the practice Among the Haryanvi woman of India, earrings were a sign of nobility and wealth, as the placement of each earring on a girl had to be purchased at an expensive  gold of 10 gram.
   Method used to enlarge their earlobe gauze was using…
• Peacock feather stem
• Tamarind powder
• Mustard oil
• Water
They cut the feather stems (starting from one stick) twice the thickness of their earlobes, after piercing they used to wear metal (silver or gold) rings, after healing (they used to apply mustered oil and, tamarind powder, for healing). After healing they insert one stick from peacock feather after making it very thin ( using water and rubbing the sticks with to and fro movement in palms to make the sticks as thin as they can),after insertion they spray water on ear lobes, so that the thin sticks gradually swallows and make the earlobes large. They had to repeat the process tow-three times a day. After some days they insert another set of feather sticks, they used to increase the number of sticks, thus made their earlobe -holes larger to accommodate their large earrings i.e. bujlies.

though in this picture silver bujlis and nose purli  are  of silver metal
