Odissi (Orissi) dance is a traditional dance form from Odisha. It is the oldest surviving dance form of India. Silver filigree jewellery is an integral part of the Odissi dance costume. The dancers usually wear two sets of necklaces as part of the attire - A long necklace with a pendant that ends just above the waist belt and a short necklace around the neck. The dancers also wear a Maang Tikka on their hair and forehead and matching ear rings.

The pieces are of good quality. However, the entire set was packed together and crushed into a very tiny, cheap cardboard box and shipped to USA. As a result, the tiny drops on the earrings and maang tikka dropped off. So now, they look bad. After paying 45,000 INR, I am not sure why the vendor would skimp on packing supplies. Even fake jewellery comes in beautiful velvet or plastic boxes nowadays. Why can’t expensive real silver pieces be packed well before shipping? Very disappointed!
