Styling Traditional Indian Jewellery

” Jewellery has the power to be the one little thing that makes you feel unique”- Elizabeth Taylor.

For me on many personal levels, jewellery is more than an ornament to jazz up your dress or a little bauble here and there to fill a void around your wrists and neck. Jewellery for me, is a statement, a keepsake, a memoir, a legacy that stays behind after you. Being a daughter of a lady, who enjoys jewellery immensely and collects it like there’s no tomorrow.. the little streak of jewellery obsession has hit me home as well.

My take on jewellery is that, it really must speak to you and in a very beautiful way even portray who you are. Your jewellery speaks volumes about you, either it’s boho and colourful or classic and muted. Amongst these comes our very own genre of traditional Indian jewellery, which is as vast as our country ; varying from region to region and depicting styles that the world slowly gets inspired to recreate.

I had, the opportunity to visit the popular “Aquamarine Jewellery” store that recently launched in Bangalore at Commercial Street. Having been in the business for quite a good chunk of time, “Aquamarine Jewellery “, will have you running in circles. They have an eye catching and heart wanting collection of such exquisite masterpieces, that there’s no way that you will walk out without indulging in one from here. They have western & Indian style of jewellery. The Kundans, polkis, pearls, geometrics and what not. Here’s what I loved and make sure, you give the place a visit as well.

Look 1 :

Pearl Studded Statement Earrings : These need no counterpart to balance their beauty. I, used these statement pearl studded earrings to compliment my outfit by tying the hijab with a simple knot on the back and letting the sides loose in the front. And if i really must, add some pizzazz i would just add a nice statement ring to carry it off.

Look 2 :

The Emerald Kada to up your style quotient : I, love all things green and emerald is just such a beautiful colour that this exquisite design from their collection, not only looks good on Indian outfits but is a perfect companion even to your Indo-western or western outfits.

Look 3 :

The Rajputana Aad cum Hyderabadi Gulubandh :

This beauty reminds me of a fusion between the Aads and Gulubandhs. A total beauty to wear on any Indian outfit and if you’re daring enough to break the norms go wear it on a jean and camisole. I did the turban style of Hijab for this baby because i wanted it to be the main star.

Look 4:

The Aad :

It’s a beautiful Choker with Kundan work. It just takes your breath away, the moment you hold it. I, love the aesthetic to it & it’s my favourite to be honest. It immediately bestows Royalty upon you. Wore it with a side swept turban hijab.

Do let me know, how you liked the jewellery styling & if this gives you inspiration to wear it on western wear as well.
