Unlike a wedding ring , Indian Hindu brides wear a necklace of black beads strung in gold with little gold cups . This one also has beads of coral and pearls which are symbols of fertility and prosperity and good health . Here the necklace is being sanctified and blessed before the groom gets the bride to wear it .
Rice , betel nuts and fragrant jasmine flowers are used in the prayers.
