Why do some cultures wear jewels on their forehead and what do the different colors mean?

I can not understand why some people have a jewel on their forehead.

In some cultures this is a simple mark of beauty, in others it is a recognition of a third eye or additional vision, an attempt to communicate a desire to see more deeply on a spiritual level.

They wear jewels on the forehead for beauty and the color on the forehead means they are married. Some may not prefer to put colors(sindhoor) on the forehead.
