Traditional Indian jewellery has been synonymus with festivals, especially weddings. Is it even a wedding if the aunties haven’t discussed the price of the bride/grooms mother’s new necklace in hushed tones? We will scour every corner of the city to find the right necklace to pair with the lehenga’s because we want to look our ethnic best. I know I do, its the only time I’d ever dress feminine so HELL’S YEAH! Movies and TV shows have forever been our inspiration for fashion ideas. The likes of Jodha Akbar, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and now Padmavat glorifying traditional Kundan, polki and jadau jewellery. I snooped around to find cheaper versions to satisfy the inner fanatic in me! Not having any use of these kind of accessories apart from wedding’s it dosen’t make sense to spend 50 grand on it. We can do away with cheaper knock-offs the market has to offer. So smitten were we with the jewellery adorned by Padmavati in the movie that somebody turned it into a lucrative business and set up a jewellery store online and named it padmavatijewellery.com! If you you don’t believe it then check out their website in the link at the end of the article. I have searched for toned down versions of the jewellery from the movies(Padmavat being my main focus).
Lehenga’s with beautiful Kundan chokers. They will definitely make you shine. Make sure your neckline is slightly deep so the neck and collar bones are on full display to show off the Kundan choker. Find your favourite style in the images below.
Opt for a layered pearl necklace like in the images below. Will look great with a fitted Dupin suit(looks like raw silk but is actually polyester) or a rustic red Fabindia saree. Jadau necklaces would go great with a hot pink lehenga.
Basic layered styles or the Kundan styles tied close to the neck will work as well! Check out the styles I’ve put together below and find your favourite for this wedding season.
