Your wedding is the most important day of your life, and every bride wants to dazzle on this day. It’s the moment of “I do”. The moment when your fate is sealed with another.
Jewellery is an important facet, adding the much-needed panache to your attire. The ornaments that you select will add to your aura, glow and overall look.
Experts at Kalyan Jewellers have 4 important tips about buying your wedding jewellery:
Buy your jewellery before the dress
Many a time, brides-to-be purchase dresses before jewellery, but this is a mistake. The wedding jewellery that you are buying will most likely be far more expensive than your clothing. Remember, your dress should highlight your jewellery, not diminish its value. Whether it is South Indian jewellery or any other design, it should stand out while complementing your outfit.
Choose according to the occasion
There are traditionally several ceremonies at weddings, so it would be wise to plan out your jewellery according to the occasion. For example, the Haldi and Mehendi ceremonies are usually accompanies by lighter pieces – light gold chains, gold earrings and so forth.
For the engagement ceremony, we suggest keeping the focus on your ring, with a minimal emphasis on other areas. The reception and cocktail is usually the time to dazzle with a diamond necklace.
The wedding day is the most important, of course. Our advice is to stick to a traditional look. True to South Indian style, we suggest yellow gold sets with beautiful details and gemstone embellishments. It is important to note that the neckline of your outfit should match the necklace design silhouette for the best effect. North Indian brides could opt for exquisite Polki sets with an antique look.
When picking out your earrings, it is vital that you keep in mind the hairstyle during the occasion. For buns and other up-dos, heavy earrings would work well. If your hair is down, a lighter and longer earring style will compliment your whole look.
Invest in pieces that can last a lifetime
Your wedding trousseau should have some pieces that you can wear after the big day. Pick some pieces that can last you a lifetime, and will never look dated – such as heritage gold bangles, beautiful nose pin, pretty jhumkas and other options. The trend nowadays is to buy detachable wedding jewellery that can be made into something simpler at a later stage. Chokers are always trendy and a great addition to any jewellery collection.
Lastly, but in our opinion, the most important point, is to feel comfortable with your jewellery. After all, this is your big day, and you would want to enjoy it as much as possible. Try and avoid very heavy earrings for occasions where you are required to dance. Jewellery shouldn’t make you feel constricted but should increase your glow.
