Mix dainty with the bold
Layer your heavy, statement pieces with a light choker or even a longer string necklace to create movement and add freshness to your look. A stunning heritage design like the ‘Pranithi Nath’ bridal necklace pairs beautifully with a minimalist pearl choker with a chand center, offsetting its richness for a balanced look.
Golden Rule of Three
A classic rule of layering bridal necklaces, the ‘rule of three’ is the easiest way to ace your look for any function or outfit choice. Start with a statement piece and add two supplementary pieces. Play around with colors, patterns, types of jewelry, and lengths to complement your neckline and style of outfit! Remember, there is no set answer to style!
The ‘Mayura’ pearl necklace with multicolored gemstones and peacock elements matches the complex, yet aesthetic amalgamation of diverse units that make up the ‘Brinda’ choker. Combining luxury with an eclectic spirit, the ‘Pankh’ pendant necklace ties in with its gem-encrusted perched peacocks for a unique but delightful combination. The seemingly different styles of work and shapes of the three necklaces work in perfect harmony.
Perfect balance for understated glamor
Finding the right size and pattern of wedding necklace for your style of outfit is crucial to creating an elegant ensemble. While heavily embroidered pieces or statement necklines are best paired with earrings, you can go to town with your favorite necklace picks on deep-neck blouses and minimalist outfits.
The ‘Padmini Thussi’ choker necklace’s traditional gold intricacies and center peacock pendant with uncut gems and meenakari work add a dazzling touch to the outfit’s simple design, while the delicate peach tones are accentuated by the pink rubies, pearls, and diamonds of the ‘Guttapusalu’ necklace below.
Multicoloured is a mood
While contrasting hues are a great way to spice up a monochromatic outfit, incorporating tones from your multicolored ensembles in your bridal jewelry is a foolproof way to stay co-ordinated and elegant, without overpowering your lehenga or saree.
The classic pearl and polki aesthetic of the ‘Meghna’ necklace adds a sophisticated touch to the bold colors of this outfit, while the distinct colors and pendant shapes of the ‘Indus’ bridal necklace accentuate and celebrated its different tones.
Embrace your individuality
Don’t be afraid of mixing materials, gemstones, and styles to find a look that is uniquely you. A modern take on the classic navaratna, the ‘Ratna’ choker necklace pairs with the colorful emeralds, pink tourmalines, pearls, and polki of the ‘Hoor’ Kundan necklace for a surprising combination that is unique and statement.
Play with shapes and sizes
Explore a range of options in the same family of jewelry! Not only does pairing different sizes of the same style make your jewelry look like it was made for the outfit, but it also gives you more options to wear them separately for different outfits, or mix and match with other pieces.
With matching elements in both designs, the petite ‘Rang Bracelet and Choker’ ties in with the riot of textures, colors, and shapes of the ‘Maithili’ necklace in perfect harmony. The versatile piece is also a great addition to your Indian wardrobe or trousseau to wear with suits, sarees, and more.
Poised with a Pendant
Break the monotones of your ensemble with a head-turning pendant necklace, rounding it off with a complementary choker for that effortlessly royal vibe. The vintage charm of the Pihu necklace is perfectly accentuated by the uncut diamonds and danging gemstones of the Deccan polki choker, adding richness but also fluidity to the attire.
Timeless is always Trendy
You can never go wrong with the classic romanticism of the royal satlada or panchlada bridal necklaces. Opt for strings of pearls, emeralds, or rubies to add a dose of grandeur to your bridal lehenga.
