A video of a Pakistani bride wearing 'tomato jewellery' has gone viral on the Internet. Taking a dig at the state of economy in Pakistan where the prices of tomatoes have soared to Rs 300 per kg, she replaced her gold earrings, necklace, and bangles with tomatoes.
In the video, the bride further says that even her brother sent her pine nuts as a wedding gift and she got boxes of tomatoes from her parents as a wedding gift.
Last week, Pakistani media reported that the farmers have hired armed guards to protect tomatoes, as the prices touched as high as Pakistani Rs. 320 per kg in Karachi.
According to reports, the prices have been soaring because of the lack of imports from India.
