Indian brides are undoubtedly evolving with time. They have impeccable tastes in buying their trousseau. Their taste in wedding jewellery is also changing. Modern brides still prefer to go for traditional jewellery, but with a little contemporary flavour.
While buying modern jewellery, a bride will keep in mind many factors including what will suit her as well as what will she be able to re-wear. However, there are times when she is unable to understand what exactly should constitute her entire wedding jewellery collection. So, get ready and read through our five incredibly handy tips that will help you decide on the different types of jewellery pieces, that need to go in your wedding jewellery collection.
How functional your jewellery is, will be determined by the number of times you will be able to pair it with western and Indian wear. Think out of the box and get creative with your jewellery shopping. You can go for a ear stud that can double up as a nose piece, or a pendant that can be used as a maang tikka or a bracelet. If you are buying heavy earrings, then buy a matching ring as well while giving the neckpiece a miss. You can pair such sets even with your western party outfits.
Go for sets that you can wear not just to your your sibling’s wedding, but also at an evening do. You can pair these sets with a bare-shoulder gown in solid colours, and simply make your necklace and studs the focus. In the more traditional sets, you can go for a little heavy earrings, with simpler neckpieces, to go with your Indian outfits. These can be worn even for casual parties like your friend's Diwali party or even a neighbour's mata ki chowki.

Gold is without a doubt, one classic staple that all brides have in their trousseau. Passed on as a family heirloom, from one generation to another, one can add a little fun to it by adding coloured gemstones to it. Some pearls or kundan thrown in, will also make your gold jewellery look ultra-chic and stylish and you can pair it with both Indian and western wear.
Add some bold, dangling or chandelier earrings to your wedding jewellery collection. They frame one’s face so beautifully that they are a must-have for any bride. You can wear them with any solid colour dress, hair tied up in a knot, and bold eye makeup with a tint of shine on lips. Get a piece or two of a statement neckpiece as well. You can instantly dress up a casual outfit or take your formal attire to a whole new level for your post marriage dos. You can easily team up your heavy danglers with a light lehenga for even your reception party.
If you are the kind who loves diamonds, then go for elegant pieces instead of big, chunky bangles. Get inlaid diamond bracelets for a heavier look. Or you can also opt for multi-strand bracelets for that delicate look. Bracelets in floral designs or diamonds interspersed with colourful gems can also be good options. These will become such pieces of jewellery that will always hold a special meaning for you, and you could perhaps wear it on an everyday basis as well.
To wrap it up, make sure that you just do not go for the same old heavy gold or diamond sets for your wedding jewellery collection. Keep a healthy mix of traditional and contemporary as well as heavy and simple. And you will easily be able to reuse your wedding jewellery for many occasions to come.
No wonder every single piece of jewel is an essential part of bridal ornaments. But this wedding season, there is one jewellery girls are fans of. It’s a passa or jhoomar that dangles on either side of the forehead and traditionally creates much difference in the overall look of a bride.Read More
