Stylish nose studs in various sizes and shapes have now become an unavoidable part of the fashion statement among youngsters. In some communities, a woman wearing a nose stud is part of their beliefs. According to the Vedas, piercing the left nostril is ideal for a woman.
Though gold, silver or many other metal nose studs are widely worn by women, experts say that gold is the most ideal metal when it comes to nose rings or studs.
Gold is influenced by planets like Jupiter, which brings good luck, Ravi (soul as per the nadi astrology) and Mars which stands as brother or spouse. Besides, gold is considered to have the special blessings of Goddess Lakshmi in the Hindu mythology. Diamond nose studs too are quite popular among youngsters.
However, this stone may not be astrologically suitable to everyone. Those who have Saturn on unfavorable positions as per their horoscope should avoid wearing diamonds.
However, those who have Saturn on favorable positions or those who were born in the zodiac sign that correspond to the planet, can wear ornaments in diamond.
The left side of the nose is linked to the reproductive organs of a woman. As per the ayurvedic texts, when the left side of the nose is pierced, it would affect the nerves in this area which are connected to the uterus and other reproductive organs. It significantly helps reduce menstrual cramps and eases pain during child birth.
