Katy Perry, the 25-year-old pop star who prepares to marry Russell Brand on Saturday, has been spotted wearing a traditional Indian bridal nose ring, called a nath, as she arrived at India's Jaipur airport.
The Nath is a gold chain attached to a nose ring that is hooked across the bride-to-be’s right cheek and pinned to her hair above the ear. The ring is worn by brides throughout the wedding day, with the bridegroom removing it on the wedding night as a symbol of the woman's virginity ending.
The happy couple are expected to wed in a traditional Indian ceremony at Rambagh Palace in Rajasthan where Russell proposed to Katy on New Year's Eve. Their family members including Katy's parents and Russell's mother, and other wedding guests, have also been arriving in Jaipur for the wedding.
