Gold jewellery doubtlessly adds glitz to any outfit. Complement your gold with the right colours and you can create an effect dazzling enough for the red carpet. Yes, different shades of clothing can enhance the beauty and richness of the versatile yellow metal.
Pastel shades are elegant and suitable for all occasions and all kinds of outfits, be it gowns or lehengas. These subtle hues are perfect for highlighting the charm of gold ornaments. Gold jewellery is the ideal embellishment for the lovely light colours.
Pristine white, the favourite colour of Christian brides, is a perfect match for any kind of gold jewellery whether traditional or contemporary. Other shades like off-white, ivory and cream worn with ornate, antique pieces are alluring combinations that can never go wrong.
Blues can bring out a sharp contrast with the glint of gold. Scuba blue, turquoise and similar colours in fabrics like satin and velvet will steal the limelight when worn with statement pieces in pure gold.
Red, the quintessential festive colour of India, is another clear winner when combined with gold. Rich silks, brocades and organzas in fiery red adorned with jewellery in gold are simply gorgeous.
Mellow yellow can be a great choice if accessorised carefully. The jewellery should stand out amidst all the yellow colour. Bold chunky neck pieces worn well above the neckline and a single bangle or any unique ornament on the arms make the bright ensemble exquisite.
The royal maroon, again a time-honoured choice of colour in India, is striking when accompanied by the right gold adornments. Intricate jewellery in gold is sure to match opulent silks and embroidered sarees in maroon.
The mystery and intensity of black is only heightened when combined with stunning jewellery. A display of gold against black is a guaranteed head turner.
Kanjeevaram and Banarasi silks are almost incomplete without the sparkle of gold. Put together a traditional ensemble with these silks and some vintage gold pieces. For those who prefer the contemporary look, trendy designer sarees and flowing anarkalis can be paired with chic designs in gold.
