Why do indian women put this little jewell/accessory between their eyebrows?

I find it cool and also the little earring they put on their noses but I was wondering if the other accessory has some kind of meaning(I just know it’s related to the third eye, pineal gland theory)

Is what you are talking about the ‘BINDI’? This we see as a red dot often times with jewelery on the forehead. In the Hindu language BINDI means ‘dot, a small drop’.
Bindis are worn throughout South Asia, specifically India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, by women and girls, and no longer signify age, marital status, religious background or ethnic affiliation. The bindi has become a decorative item and is no longer restricted in colour or shape. Self-adhesive bindis (also known as sticker bindis) are available, usually made of felt or thin metal and adhesive on the other side. These are simple to apply, disposable substitutes for older tilak bindis. Sticker bindis come in many colors, designs, materials, and sizes. Some are decorated with sequins, glass beads, or rhinestones.
The area between the eyebrows (where the bindi is placed) is said to be the sixth chakra, ajna, the seat of “concealed wisdom”. According to followers of Hinduism, this chakra is the exit point for kundalini energy. The bindi is said to retain energy and strengthen concentration. It is also said to protect against demons or bad luck.
A common misconception or urban legend/myth about the bindi in the western world is that only married Hindu women wear red bindis as a symbol of wedlock.
In modern times, bindis are worn by women of many religious dispositions in South Asia and Southeast Asia, and is not restricted to Hindus.
Red represents honour, love and prosperity hence was worn traditionally by women to symbolize this.
