Nose piercings have a really long history. In 1500 BCE, Lakshmi wore nose rings according to the Hindu book called Vedas. The modern practice of nose rings in India has been estimated to come from the Middle Eastern nomadic tribes that traveled the trade. Customs in Indian Hindu culture include that women of childbearing age wear a nose stud in their left nostril.
Nose rings and pins can be made from substances like metal, plastic, and even glass. They come in unique designs and colors. Some are even studded with precious stones like diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, etc.
