TREASURE TROVE

India is a myriad of traditions and rituals with wedding ceremony being the most significant time in a girl’s life, and the jewels she adorns herself with, will be remembered by her clan for years, captured in the wedding photo album and videos, to be treasured and revisited and maybe passed on to her daughters. With different customs comes the need for different kind of jewellery and so we are featuring all the kind of jewels that you lust for and for the Brides-to-be for doing plenty of shopping. Check the collection and make your treasure box.

Today’s trend go for minimalism but these jewels should make way in your treasure box:

White and yellow gold :
Deck up in heavy gold pieces for the pheras. While certain brides prefer the ‘less is more’ approach, this is your D-Day, so there is no harm in putting on an elaborate necklace embedded with coloured gemstones.

Jadau:
Although Jadau was introduced to India by the Mughals, our craftsmen enhanced it with their indigenous skills. The main items in jadau are precious and semi precious stones, gems, crystals and beads, all embedded in gold. Its most interesting feature is the meenakari (enamelling work) done on the backside
.
Kundan:
Highly elaborate with layers of precious metals and intricate joint work, kundan jewellery is a classic choice for every bride. It has transcended into the current generation’s jewellery box in a leaner form, with designs that reflect an international aesthetic. Make sure your kundan set matches your trousseau when you go hunting for it. So, it’s better to carry your trousseau along for the selection.

Crystal jewellery:
There has been a lot of buzz around crystal jewellery among the urban set. The beauty of crystal jewels is that they would sit well on vibrant rust coloured lehenga as much as a pastel green sari. The market is flooded with crystals used as embellishments for necklaces and bangles. They come with intricate motifs of animals and birds.
