The use of the veil has long been recorded since the early 13th century where noble women in Assyria were the only people allowed to use them. It was always attributed to having a higher status even for Persian women. During that time common people and prostitutes were forbidden to wear veils.
Through this day, Western woman is likely to wear a veil on her wedding day. Before, women just wore their hair behind their back to symbolize virginity, now the white veil often represents this. Although it is not certain if the veil has a religious use of the veil since most wedding tradition had religious underpinnings, especially in the West.
The lifting of the veil with her wearing her bridal crystal jewelry earring means the groom is taking possession of his bride, either as lover or as his property, or it could also mean the revelation of the bride by her parents to the groom for his approval.
