For a bride to be, her wedding jewelry is the most loved possession she would ever have in her life. While ownership of elaborate jewelry used to be a status symbol back in ancient times, today it has evolved to become the reflection of one’s persona and style. For every little girl that drew the picture of a perfect princess-alike bride in her imagination, adorning the most exquisite piece of wedding jewelry is a dream come true.
However, not many of us have full knowledge some very vital points that are to be kept in mind before shopping for wedding jewelry. We have tried to list down some of them to make jewelry shopping less chaotic.
When it comes to something so intimate and lavish as wedding jewelry, it is but natural to get carried away with the budget. Since every bride wants to look perfect, the pocket is let loose in most cases. However, it is not practical to let a set of wedding jewelry eat out the entire bank balance. Thus, to be on the safer side it is wise to look for options and find solution on accessories on a budget.
A statement piece
While making the budget for jewelry shopping, it is advised to focus on one statement piece than going for an enormous set of diamond or gold set. Accessories like kamarband, kaleerein, choker necklaces, maang tikas, cocktail rings and kadas, jhoomers etc will help the brides fix the whole set with much ease and comfort, also making her look dainty and classy. Also, choosing a statement piece that can be worn in other occasions as well helps a lot in cost cutting.
Weddings are one of those ceremonies that have intense sentiments attached to it. So what could a better occasion than to dress up in something that has been an heirloom piece in the family? Wedding is the best time to revive the vintage feel and raid the family’s jewelry boxes to dress in those gorgeous strings of pearls of Grandma or the elegant ‘nath’ mother wore on her wedding.
Contrast, contrast and contrast
The new age wedding fashion is so much about contrast. Brides these days are found wearing green cholis with red lehengas and blue blouses with grey sarees. So why not opt the same rule while choosing the wedding jewelry as well? Gone are the days when red, pink and green stones were the dominant colors in the bridal set. Today, jewelry designer and brides have gone a step ahead to include colors like coral, blue, brown, purple and even hues of grey to their jewelry set. The key, however, is to maintain the balance by wearing a subtle bridal couture in complimenting colors like off white or grey.
Quality over quantity
The most important point to be kept in mind is to always choose a quality product over quantity. Though weddings in India ask for the bride to look all dolled up from head to toe, it is crucial to invest in something that would maintain its quality forever. Hence, rather than going for big chunky pieces (that might not one ever use again, unless for a fancy dress competition), opting for quality subtle jewelry is the safest way out to look ethereal.
Though for some bride, the wedding jewelry is the second most important thing after her outfit; for some it is like choosing between cheese pizza and a choco lave cake. One cannot just settle with one.
