For those brides-to-be setting out on your jewellery shopping, here is our guide for key pieces of Indian accessories that you must possess.
Earrings are an integral part of any Indian ensemble. No outfit is complete unless it is paired with a beautiful pair of earrings that frame your face and add a touch of sparkle or a pop of colour to your look.

What comes to your mind the moment you think of the words ‘wedding’ and ‘necklace’ together? You are absolutely right. A diamond necklace! A must-have piece in your Indian accessories collection is indeed a diamond necklace, which will be the talk of the town at your wedding. Do sample some fine pieces of diamond necklaces that we have on offer for you here. We are particularly gravitating towards this dazzling ruby and diamond necklace that promises to become a part of your family heirloom.
Bangles are an integral accessory for Indian wedding ceremonies. In many families, the mother-in-law welcomes the bride into the family by giving her a pair of bangles. On your wedding day, don’t skimp on the number of bangles that you wear. Mix gold bangles with pretty stone encrusted ones that match your wedding outfit. When you are out shopping for colourful bangles, make sure to take your outfits along so that you can find the right match of bangles for your clothes. Wear at least a dozen bangles in each hand to do justice to the fact that you are the bride!
While these are the most important Indian accessories that one must have, aside from these, the Indian bride can also wear the maang tika on the forehead, a cummerbund or a waist band around the waist, a multitude of rings, as well as arm bands. When you are shopping for Indian accessories, make your choices depending on how much bling you want in your outfit. Too much shine can end up looking very flashy, whilst embracing subtlety will take away from the ‘bridal’ look. Pick the right kind of accessories that can also be worn during occasions after the wedding and can be co-ordinated with different outfits. Last but not the least, don’t forget to smile – this will certainly light up your face and add a radiant glow more than any amount of jewellery can.
