What takes a normal festive outfit a notch higher is the jewellery it’s paired up with. Jewellery has gone beyond its role of adornment to one that captures attention and mesmerizes. With a breathtaking variety of designs and combinations ranging from the traditional and contemporary to the eclectic and futuristic, one is spoilt for choice.
Statement jewellery pieces have been a favourite all throughout 2019 and the festive season will be no different. Pair a high neckline with classic statement earrings such as Chandbalis or Kashmiri Jhumkas or you could also opt for contemporary, statement diamond earrings. Turn to large rings, or big jhumkas especially on an embellished outfit. Dig into the flattering chunk combined with stones or beautiful carvings like Ganesha or Lakshmi which will be a special addition to your jewelry number. When the outfit is already loud, don’t overdo it with too many pieces of jewellery. Scream your style with that signature piece ladies!
Delicate gold pendants with a single diamond or ruby, or plain silver ones with filigree work, are a favourite with those looking at simple elegant look. Often adorned with precious stones, crystals and motif pendants which add depth especially when layered together. A simple angular necklace can look sharp on a solid shaded blouse and a tight bun for the festivities. The lightweight makes it easy to wear them all day long at your own ease and comfort.
For Your Traditional Pujas
For those with a love for heavy Kanjeevaram and Benarasi sarees, traditional Temple, Polki and Kundan jewellery fit right into your category. Earrings, Necklaces, Maang Teekas and even traditional Anklets look fabulous paired with those ravishing sarees.
Platinum Is The New Gold
Though platinum can never take the place of gold, there’s a distinct shift among urban young Indians to pick up platinum love bands instead of the traditional gold ring. Aesthetically designed pendants, earrings and necklaces embrace the beautiful motifs of flowers, leaves and natural foliage. Leading trends also include delicate filigree forms in art nouveau style. Platinum is also naturally white, unlike white gold, which means it will not cast any tint onto a diamond or gemstone, allowing the stone's genuine color to sparkle brightly.
Tune Along With Tones
For exciting festive parties, you can replace traditional gold designs with precious stone jewellery in bright colours. This is a great trick to add colour to a monochrome look and uplift the subtle tone of your ensemble. Trends this season are inclined towards statement pieces made using sapphire, emerald, rubies and diamonds.
