As a bride-to-be, you have so much to look forward to in life, but the number one priority right now would obviously be your wedding day! Every bride wants to be the most beautiful woman in the universe on that special day of her life. Her clothes, makeup, accessories, etc., all play a role in this (apart from the natural rosy glow of love, of course!), but one of the most important things that brings an extra glow to any bride is the jewellery that she wears on her wedding day (or for any of the other functions and events related to the wedding).
Different varieties of jewellery
Whereas earlier the options in jewellery were limited, today that is not the case. There are so many different types of jewellery available for the bride, from different states in the country to international designs, that choosing the right one can be a thrilling adventure. Here are the latest in jewellery trends and varieties:
• Kundan jewellery: This is classic jewellery that still looks modern and stylish, no matter where and when you wear it. A combination of the purest gold with both precious and semi-precious stones, this Mughal-era style jewellery will leave you looking and feeling like a princess for sure! If you are having your wedding in any of the dream destinations in Rajasthan, then it would be only befitting to have Kundan jewellery in your bridal trousseau.
• Pure Gold: This is available in a wide variety of designs and styles and will look good for any occasion. You can also get gold jewellery with different stones embedded in them for a greater style statement.
• Diamonds: If you have even a single piece of diamond jewellery, then it would be enough to be a style statement of its own. Whether just pure diamonds or diamonds with other gems, you would look dazzling with diamond jewellery, no matter what you wear.
• Pachchikam: Originally from the Kutch and Gujarat regions, this is old world jewellery at its best. This is affordable and attractive jewellery that uses silver and is perfect for all the little occasions where you need to wear really flashy jewellery without breaking the bank!
• Jadau: Jadau jewellery is originally from Gujarat and Rajasthan. Here, you will find gold, uncut diamonds called Polki, and other gems such as emeralds, rubies, pearls, sapphire, etc.
• Meenakari: Meenakari jewellery is from Rajasthan and features precious stones which are enamelled and in various designs such as paisley, flowers, peacocks, etc. Sometimes, you will find Meenakari jewellery on the reverse side of Kundan jewellery which makes it even more versatile, flexible, and value for money.
Tips for choosing jewellery
• It is always better to match your jewellery to the clothes that you will be wearing rather than the other way around, so do your clothes shopping first.
• Start shopping 6 months before the wedding so you don’t have any last minute disasters.
• Take a fabric or picture of your clothes when you go for jewellery shopping.
