7 Statement Jewellery Pieces That Are Slaying The Current Wedding Scenario
The shaadi season is back and we are so in love with all that typical jazz of a Big Fat Indian Wedding! Our Facebook and Instagram newsfeed is overflowing with pictures of pool mehendis, glitzy sangeets, and dreamy weddings. But what's your major point of interest when you click on the album? For me, it's always the bride! ‘Coz after all, it's her day :)
Coming back to where we were, this wedding listicle is all about the statement jewellery pieces that you just could not ‘not notice' in 2016. Go through a to-be bride's checklist and these will definitely top it!
Picture Bipasha Basu in that dreamy pastel-pink angrakkha during her mehendi ceremony? Remember the gorgeous tiered neckpiece that she was wearing? That's a satlada! Satladas were always a part of vintage jewellery, but only now are they being seen as that crucial piece that can make or break a bridal look.
Facing hassles in finding a ring and a bracelet that are somewhat similar? Go for the haathphool! This gorgeous piece of jewellery is minimalist and eye-catching at the same time. Plus, there are a gazillion of designs available, so you're sure to find your match.
Oh My God, how can the mathapatti not be on this list! You will hardly find any bride wearing the mangteeka these days ‘coz now it's all about the mathapatti. Right from pearly ones, to thick kundan ones, to multistrand pieces, to a one-sided patti – the mathapatti is going nowhere anytime soon!
An oversized ring is all you need to jazz up those bare hands. You can either choose to borrow a regal kundan one from your grandma's jewellery box or go shopping for a chic mirror-work piece – either way you're gonna slay.
An oversized nose ring is like the cherry to that flawless makeup and gorgeous ensemble. While earlier, brides were pretty sceptical about donning a huge nath, the current bridal scenario speaks volumes about breaking stereotypes. Go for an embellished one or a classic plain hoop to look the best on your D-Day.
Move over flower jewellery, gota jewellery is here to slay! Wearing flower pieces during the mehendi ceremony is so last-season. Look up the pages of a few wedding photographers and you'll know how real brides are crushing over colourful gota jewellery. And just FYI, there are a number of vendors who specialise in creating customized pieces that complement your outfit. Need we say more? :)
Celebrity brides like Mira Rajput, Dia Mirza, and Soha Ali Khan began the trend of adorning their bridal look with an oh-so-beautiful passa or jhoomar. Though this one traditionally belongs to Muslim culture, jhoomars have now become popular universally.
The best part about these outstanding jewellery pieces is that they will look just as perfect on your bridesmaids too. Share this with your cousins and BFFs and they'll give you all the credit for looking sassy at your wedding!
P. S. – The hathphool and the ring don't go together. Likewise, the mathapatti and the jhoomar cannot be paired.
