A bride from Lahore, Pakistan, is seen in a viral video wearing a necklace, earrings, bangles and hair accessories made out of tomatoes.
While speaking with local news channel she revealed: “Gold prices are on the rise. Tomatoes and pine nuts have also become very expensive. That is why I chose to wear tomatoes instead of gold on my wedding.”
The price of tomatoes has skyrocketed to Rs. 300 per kg in several parts of the country.
