2018 is the year of statement jewellery around the world. And while one statement piece is all you need to light the room up, there’s nothing brighter and better than vintage jewellery. So don’t let your heirloom jewels gather dust in the back of your wardrobe. Get the dust off them because they are quickly going to become your new go-to pieces of jewellery this year.
Kundan Choker Sets
There is nothing more beautiful than the simple Kundan setting of glass in gold, glistening away all night and making you the cynosure of all eyes. The most popular jewellery in Kundan work is the choker necklace set that every woman loves. If you want a splash of colour, a meenakari work set will do the trick. Choker sets pair very well with saris, or with an evening gown. The choker will highlight your neck whether you wear your hair up or down.
The Famous Nath
Not all women are a fan of nose piercings, but those who are can make their nose pins a statement piece of jewellery. Years ago, our grandmothers and great grandmothers wore rather large nose rings and nose pins al through their lives. We may not be able to do that anymore, but wearing it at a special occasion will certainly earn you glamour points. One of the most famous ones is the Maharashtrian nath that is made of gold and covered with fine pearls in a paisley design. If you do not have a nose pin but you still want to try this style, you can certainly buy one to pin on.
The Kasumalai Necklace
Kasumalai, or the coin necklace is very famous in South India at weddings. Made in pure gold, it gives a subtle yet glamorous effect to any outfit. You can pair it with an anarkali or a long, bohemian dress to create a statement. Another way to brighten up an outfit is to pair it with a simple black tee and jeans and let the necklace bask in the limelight. So if you do own a Kasumalai necklace, you know what to do with it.
Drop Earrings or Jhumkis
Every woman’s favourite, jhumkis are an age old ornament that look splendid when worn alone as a statement piece. A beautiful style in drop earrings is also the chaand baali, delicate in gold and pearls. Jhumkis go well with all Indian wear, as well as western wear. They are the easiest statement jewellery to pair up with absolutely any outfit you wear. Take your pick with gold or silver chaand baalis.
