When it comes to weddings every season something news comes up and the old style fades away. One if the most important thing in the bridal look is the jewelry. It has to be trendy, classy and complimenting the whole bridal attire. In today’s trend we can see two extremes in bridal jewelry. At one side we can see huge statement necklaces, earrings, maathapatti etc. They have the royal look and stand out. On the other hand we have subtle yet classy bridal sets that may not be huge but when paired with the right look make an impact of the same level.
It is common to have an Opera Long Necklace with a Chokar or Collar set paired together. The subtle classy look here has been beautifully enhanced by the Chitrakari Pink Meenakari Necklace. Inspired by the Miniature painting Chitrakari collection has mughal and rajansthani minitature imprints with Meenakari work and Kundan work around it. In this necklace there are three rajasthani lady figures portrait. This trend of bringing paintings in jewelry can be dated back to Mughal and Rajput empires.
In the Opera Necklace we have intricate aari work, again a work from old times. This season we can a lot of inspirations and techniques that have surfaced back from old times. We can see a set of Necklace, earrings, maathapatti and ring that has the same aari work. This also reflects the old style where everything was matched and the bride generally wore a gold necklace set with similar headgear, rings etc.
In this look we can see another pair of Opera Necklace that has been put in with a Princess Necklace. Here the Chitrakari Necklace depicts a goddess. And it has more work of Kundan around and in the strings. It brings a rich royal appeal in the attire.
The Opera necklace embellished with beautiful aari work. And it has been encrusted with navratna stones. The earrings are quite huge and creating a statement in itself. They have also been encrusted with navratna stone like the necklace. In this look instead of a maathapatti there is a simple maang tikka. This switch has been made to balance out the look with the statement earrings. A bigger headgear would have given away the elegant style created.
With a wedding comes a whole week of functions and parties. And the latest trend of sangeet cocktail has us all ready to dance and party. Turquoise is a very interesting color. It give us the right amount of attention and brightness. In jewelry turquoise is risky as it has to match with the trousseau.
For a Sangeet cocktail look Turquoise can always be trusted. In this look it brings out the vibrant colors beautifully. Embellished with aari work the necklace options have navratna stones and red and green stones finished with turquoise and pearls beads. In both sets the play of color is gorgeous. Layer of the Kundan necklace with it also breaks the monotony of turquoise and completes the attire with a royal look. Turquoise and Pearls and few elements of jewelry that have always surfaced back sooner or later.
Red is considered an auspicious color in Indian society. And this season it has become the brides choice. This also makes the jewelry work easy. It is an evergreen color and can be matched with other attires also. And red has a very classy combination with pearls, which completes the jewelry in one touch.
Aari work set with red green stones and finished with pearls. That’s a classic combination that has been introduced here. Used in Statement earrings, Chokar set, Opera set it stands out. With the touch of mughal inspiration it has also been used in jhupka for this look. Something different that touched the beauty in a royal way.
Though wedding trends keep changing, there are few things that will never go out of fashion. It’s being who you are and being the best on every possible situations.
