Dejhor is a golden locket gift from parents to their daughter at the time of her marriage, which then is worn in a golden chain (athth) gifted by her in-laws. The chain is worn in the ear & hangs from the hole in the upper-ear cartilage with one part going over the ear for support. Dejhor- the locket- hangs at the bottom. There is also another section in the chain just below the dejhor.

Traditional jewelry worn by Kashmiri married women - a distinguishing mark of identifying Kashmiri women. It uses 2 holes in the ear - one in the lobe and one in the main cartilage of the ear
