Choora: Significance and custom

Choora, the set of red and white bangles that adorn a bride's arms, is one of the most recognizable 16 shringar items of a married woman. The two colours of choora are a smybol of fertility, prosperity and good luck. 
 
The tradition of wearing choora is more common among Punjabi brides. The bride wears it in a ceremony held in the morning of her wedding day. This accessory is gifted by the bride's uncle (mamaji). The choora is then covered with a handkerchief so that the bride does not look at it. 
 
What can be the reason for this? It is believed that the choora is covered to protect the bride from evil eye. She uncovers it only when she is fully dressed in a bride's trousseau.

As per traditions, the bride is expected to wear choora for one year provided she gets pregnant prior to it. But these days, working women are choosing to remove it early. Nevertheless, it should be worn for atleast 40 days.
After removing it, the mother-in-law should put the set of bangles in a milk mixed with black til (sesame seed) and later immerse it in flowing water.
