Edo wedding beads are the traditional wedding jewelry in Benin and are frequently worn by edo people.
Brides in Edo have their hair styled in the distinctive “Eto-Okuku”. The Okuku, or crown, is created by sewing coral beads into the hair.
Many people choose to get a pre-made wig that already has the hair groomed and the crown stitched in.
Some Edo brides wear the “Ewu-ivie”, a beaded cloak or tunic, over the wrapper wrapped around their chest.
In addition, they wear “Ivie-obo” on their hands and “Ivie-uru,” which are also coral beads, around their necks. Brides carry the “Ekpa-ivie” handbag and wear beaded earrings called “Emi-ehorivie” to complete the regal traditional Edo wedding outfit.
These red coral necklaces and jewelry are also worn by Southern Nigeria brides, Delta brides, and Igbo brides during their traditional wedding ceremonies.
