Tika (Tikka)

About Forehead Pendants (Tikas; Tikkas): Among the many fascinating kinds of Tribal Jewelry is the Tika (Tikka), or forehead pendant that is worn throughout Central Asia and India. Tikas are composite ornaments that are made by combining a small extension with a hook at one end and a pendant at the other. The pendant is worn over the exact center of the forehead where the spiritual “Ajna” chakra resides. Heightening the Ajna chakra is believed to safeguard the wearer from chaos; it also signifies a perfect union between the transcendent male and female elements of nature and spirit.
