CLOSEUPOMJewellery is a very important aspect of any Indian wedding and an Indian bride’s jewellery is a critical part of her overall look and can enhance or make her look dull; so this element requires much thought and attention. Most bridal shopping lists will include necklaces set with emeralds and pearls, diamond kundan work, ruby jhoomke, sona teekas. But how do you know what to look for? What about the value of the stones? What about the quality of the craftsmanship? Check out the latest jewellery styles being showcased in fashion magazines and websites dedicated to weddings. While gold is traditionally bought for brides, think out of the box and consider polka, diamonds, jadau or semi-precious costume jewellery. Special touches can be added with a maatha patti, amulets or anklets.

Here are some great tips:

Matching details is the right balance to look stunning and gorgeous. An important thing to remember is that all the items should also match with your wedding dress.

Do not exaggerate instead look elegant. Put on as much jewellery without looking like a showroom mannequin. Choose jewellery that suits you facial features, body build and your wedding dress.

Always select jewellery according to the time of the wedding. Wear flashy jewellery only at the nightime. Heavy jewellery is better suited to a winter wedding. For a summer celebration keep it light.

Wear something that enhances your skin colour. If you have a dusky complexion, opt for a colour that suits you best like platinum, silver or jewellery in different white shades.
