Made for Each Other Glitters!
It is a well-known fact that Indians have a longstanding love affair with jewellery, especially gold. Whatever be the function, people will always deck themselves up in the finest jewellery. Ethnic Indian attire has an eternal and unending love story with traditional jewellery. When one complements their beautiful traditional attire with gold/beaded jewellery, the results are amazing. Indian wear and traditional jewellery make a great match; one accentuating the beauty of the other. Scroll down to know more about how different types of jewellery highlight the grandeur of ethnic wear:
- Gold jewellery: Think traditional jewellery and the first image that comes to mind is gold jewellery. Be it earrings, necklaces, pendants, bangles and rings, gold jewellery in all its different forms adds to the appeal of ethnic wear. No wedding, especially in South India, is complete without gold jewellery. The dazzle of the bride’s Kancheepuram silk saree is equally matched with her gold bridal jewellery. The dangling gold jhumkas, long and short chains, multiple bracelets and bangles highlight the beauty and elegance of the bride.
Gold jewellery looks best with all ethnic wear like sarees, salwar kameez, lehengas, anarkalis and the Kerala saree. Be it a social function or a religious gathering, women dress up with enthusiasm and bring out their golden trinkets.
- Kundan/Meenakari jewellery: Kundan and Meenakari jewellery have been around since the Mughal period. This type of jewellery enjoys high popularity across all ages. During all important festivals like Navratri and Diwali, women pair exquisite Kundan and Meenakari pieces with their heavily embroidered lehengas and ghagra cholis to complete the ethnic look. Another popular trend is adorning a beautiful Kundan/Meenakari kamarbandh, which will highlight the beauty of your dress.
- Precious Stones jewellery: Jewellery embedded with stones like rubies, emeralds, etc are another favourite among women. Many-a-times they match their traditional dress patterns with the colour and design of their stone-studded jewellery. Chunky jewellery, with all its beautiful stones, adds to the glamour and appeal of traditional wear.
- Silver jewellery: Silver jewellery is another choice that is a rage among the young. Oxidised silver jewellery in big, bold designs are a great accessory to highlight the ethnic style. Earrings, bracelets, heavy kadas, armlets, necklaces, big anklets and more give a folk-meets-class kind of style to the overall look. It’s great with every-day wear like skirts and dresses too.
Traditional Indian attire and jewellery always go hand-in-hand. With so many combinations available, one is truly spoilt for choice. So this festive season, put your best fashion foot forward with the best combination of traditional wear and ethnic jewellery.
