It’s that time of the year when all of us look forward to that beautiful bonhomie, celebrations, and of course dressing up. With festivals like Karwachauth, Durga Puja, Dhanteras, and Diwali coming up, one of the first things we think is ‘what to wear’! Besides your dress and makeup, accessories such jewellery are important to complete your overall look.
But with all the latest trends and so much to choose from, what do you buy to look your best? Most of us prefer to purchase gold not just because it looks beautiful but also because it’s a great investment.
To make your choice easier, we have looked up all the in-season trends and listed the must-have gorgeous pieces for the upcoming festivities.
Ear cuffs spell everything bold, chic, and unique. This small accessory is perfect to uplift your look like nothing else. There are some fantastic options of gold ear cuffs available and in stunning butterfly, peacock, and leaf designs. To add more sparkle, you can choose ones studded with diamonds or coloured gemstones. Want something more unique to up the style quotient on the Diwali party? Go for top or behind-the-ear cuffs.
This is our favourite pick for this festive season. These long dangling earrings with details of gold stitched together intricately look super stunning and transform outfits and looks instantly. For more drama, pick up shoulder-duster earrings that graze the top of your shoulders and look great with off-shoulder blouses and dresses. To get all the attention on them, wear these without a necklace.
For a gorgeously unique look when everyone is experimenting with heavy statement pieces, try something different. Choose a sleek and delicate necklace in gold that’s enough to bring all the eyes to you without being ostentatious. For added oomph, choose light weight gold necklace sets in an angular or geometric design. Pair these up with a halter neck blouse as you enjoy pandal hopping with your friends and see all eyes turn to you.
With the umpteen card parties and dinners to attend, you can’t do without accessorizing your hands the right way. And what adds more chutzpah than a bold cocktail ring. Keeping in line with the current favourite rose gold jewellery trend, opt for a distinctive oversized floral cocktail ring. Or choose from heart, stars, and bird motifs studded with precious stones. These look especially great with flowy anarkalis and elaborate kurtas.
Worn for centuries, armbands or baajubands have made a comeback and are our top pick for this festive season. They make a strong statement and look sensuous at the same time. Depending on your style and taste, you can pick up single gold chain armbands studded with tiny gold baubles or pick up the V-shaped vankis embedded with shimmering stones.
With all the puja sessions to attend, you need to put your right food forward, quite in the literal sense! Your feet cannot be left bare. To dress them up, what’s better than a pair of beautiful anklets? Those who love to experiment don’t have to settle with the usual designs. Choose layered anklets that have chains connecting to your toes. Add those tiny ghunghroos let your house get filled with the auspicious tinkling sound.
We are sure that these ideas will help you celebrate not just this auspicious time of the year but also life. To make a great investment in addition to gold jewellery, you can also choose to buy 10 gram gold coins for future keepsakes.
