Dejhoor is a dangler earring that hangs from the upper portion of the ear usualy using a red thread called Nairwan. It is believed to have been designed by the great Kashmiri acharyas to infuse divine strength in married women. Dejhoor which is cast in gold, is generally hexegonal shaped with a dot in the centre. It is believed to be a yantra denoting Shiv and Shakti.
