Bengaluru: As I wear my shimmering black gown with silver stilettos and head towards the door, something feels incomplete. One look in the full-length mirror and I absolutely know what I am missing on – jewellery!
Any look remains incomplete without the right set of accessories. Simple studs, gorgeous bangles, or heavy necklaces are only some of the many options we have. Yet, what is in-trend in the jewellery genre this year? Let’s find out:
Whether you are a fan of solitaire rings or those studded with multiple stones, the beauty of a cocktail ring is the fusion it represents. Combining these two features together, the innovative cocktail ring has a large stone in the middle, surrounded by multiple stones. While the trend of cocktail rings initiated from the fashionable women attending cocktail parties, it certainly does not constrict the beauty of the ring to such circumstances. This year, albeit the lockdown, it is time to bless your hands with the much-needed attention they deserve.
If you are someone like me, you must love subtle yet elegant rings. While surfing through the C Krishniah Chetty Collection, this classic diamond-studded cocktail ring caught my eye and has kept my heart ever since.
The best part? I can wear the ring with any attire, and it still remains fashionable yet not over-the-top – certainly my kind of ring to have.
On the other hand, if you prefer adorning your fingers with majestic gold cocktail rings, this classic gold ring with a blue center stone is a top contender. A rather unconventional cocktail ring, the surrounding is replaced by intricate carving and designs, thereby upgrading the ring to a mightier level. Imagine donning this ring with a blue-and-gold embroidered saree – ethereal indeed.
2. Cascading Jewels
As you enter a room with a large chandelier, you might just be in awe of the royal ambience it emits. While a chandelier cannot certainly be donned as a jewel, this season’s trending jewellery has infused the love for royal ornaments into jewellery. Cascading jewels resemble the royal vibes of a chandelier and are a lovely addition to make to your jewel box. Confused how jewels can be cascading?
Look at these classic gold drop earrings. Subtle from the top, the drop consists of a number of gold strings of varied lengths. I can only imagine how divine the earrings would look as I pair them with a red lehenga choli and strut down the hallway, the strings moving about silently in a royal fashion.
Conversely, if you are not one for classic golden earpieces, go for different shades in the gold genre. A beige or champagne minimalist cascading earring such as this gold drop earring is another great item to add to your list of jewels.
3. The Touch of Nature
As we enter the season of flowers and all-things-happy, it is only right if we include the essence of spring in our jewellery.
For the happy-go-lucky kind, this sunflower-inspired classic diamond studded earrings are just the thing to wear this season. Plus point: being studs, you absolutely won’t feel their weight on your ears and can wear them for as long as your heart desires.
For others who prefer neutral shades instead of bright pops of colour, rest assured for nature-inspired jewellery also has their kind of jewels in stock. Classic diamond studs in metallic hues of black/grey work as well with western outfits as they would with an eastern.
Saves tons of money on purchasing different jewels, right? Win-win!
4. Intricate Carvings
This year, it is all for complex jewellery rather than the simplistic designs we are used to wearing. From multiple-hued stones to curved embellishments, intricate designs to metallic feels, this year’s jewellery has raised the bar of beautiful jewels. Different shapes and sizes are only some of the many ways these intricate carvings have been made a part of the jewels.
If you’re hoping to purchase gold earrings for your college sweetheart, these gorgeously carved heart-shaped classic gold studs are just the thing you need as a depiction of your love and affection.
The complex designs by C. Krishniah Chetty Jewellers don’t end at earrings. Instead, you can even find necklaces and pendants in unique designs. A personal favourite is this classic diamond pendant displaying a pink stone in all its glory. Since I love paisley designs on my clothes and have them on almost all my block-print sarees, this pendant with a similar design shall go very well with them.
5. For the Love of Bows
If you are a young girl and think paisleys and cocktail rings might just not be your style, do not worry. This season’s trends have brought a flirty new jewellery style in the limelight – the love of bows. Delicate and subtle, the advantage of bows is how well suited they are to girls with all body types. If you have petite fingers and can’t imagine wearing cocktail rings – your solution lies in this elegant diamond bow ring.
A timeless classic, the ring appears fashionable and trendy – just what young girls need.
