If you want to adorn your nose with pretty umbrellas, dainty flower petals and if you fancy maybe even a peacock dancing on the rim of your nose, Timri, which sells jewellery by Chennai-based Roia started by Rohita Vee, has some great options with a contemporary twist. Tribal designs and geometric patterns are dominating features, but the umbrella and petal nose pins are on top of our list.

For the beatnik, free-spirited soul in you, Levitate is full of artsy bohemian jewellery. Most of the trinkets on sale are hand-crafted, some even by the salesgirls at the store. Who doesn’t want a nice piece of art now? Their lotus-shaped nose pins is what we’d recommend {make sure you book yourself one in advance because these sell out fast}.

Price: INR 100-INR 1,600
