How to Style Chaand Baalis and Jhumkis

Chaand baalis and jhumkis are classis favourites that can never go out of fashion. Whatever may be your personal style these earrings will look beautiful and classy on you.



Jhumkis are more a statement jewellery in the earrings category, and traditionally worn by Indian women for centuries. They come in gold and silver, with precious stones, pearls, glass and sometimes just with colourful beads. You can pick and choose from a variety of jhumkis depending on the occasion.

Gold Jhumkis

Exquisitely cut stones carefully set in gold, kundan or polka jhumkis are always in fashion. They become a statement piece of jewellery to adorn you at any traditional function. An elegant hairdo gives the centre space to your jhumkis, and they will shine all night long on your delicate ears. Nakshi jhumkis in gold are also a gorgeous combination, which is basically a delicate carving made with floral or celestial motifs. They are embedded with precious stones and make for a wonderful selection when you are going for a heavy look with a traditional attire.

Silver Jhumkis

Pure silver Jhumkis are perfect for workwear, or when you want to add some oomph to your fusion outfit. Pair it with a crisp kurti for that event at office, and enjoy the compliments that pour in.  They’re also perfect to wear with a long, traditional print skirt or a cotton jacket, giving your fusion outfit a glam look.  Silver jhumkis are a great addition to a simple black dress, and can easily be paired with a chunky bracelet and ring to match.


Chaand Baalis

Pearl Drop Chandbali Earrings

Chaand baalis are an eternal favourite in the north, generally worn with traditional wear like saaris and kurtas, even on a daily basis. They are traditionally round in shape, or a semi-circle, like the moon. Chaand baalis come in both light and heavy versions, and usually have pearl drops to add to their charm.

  • Light Chaand Baalis

Simple, gold chaand baalis are round and more delicate, thus have a more sombre effect than jhumkis. If you are a girl who’s fond of earrings, then chaand baalis are a must have in your collection. They add a charm to your usual jewellery, whether you are stepping out for a brunch with the girls, or to office. Chaand baalis are the perfect travel jewellery, as they are easy to pack and light to carry with you.

  • Heavy chaand baalis

These are usually worn on bigger occasions, like weddings and other traditional events. They pair best with a beautiful handloom sari and a heavy work blouse. The advantage of these chaand baalis is that they will glimmer through open hair as well, playing the lovely game of peek-a-boo all evening. You can simply pair them with heavy bangles, or a chocker neckpiece, if you are opting for a more royal look. The pearls add to the nawabi charm and you are all set to impress with a few statement pieces.
