Thanks for those who responded to my request for non-Sanskrit wrods for
adornment (Gujarati shaNgAr).
Does anyone know the list of the traditional 16 adornments of an Indian
Have you consulted B. J. Sandesara's study of these terms in medieval
Gujarati literature? It is included in his two volume
Varnaka-samuccaya : samskrtika ane sahityika itihasa mate mahatvana
padyanukari gadyavarnakono samuccaya. Vadodara : Maharaja Sayajirava
Visvavidyalaya, 1956�59. 2 v. (Pracina Gurjara granthamala ; 4, 8).
v. 1 has an appendix on vastra and abharana
v. 2 has a chapter discussing these (chapter 3)
