Tribal inspired jewellery is the hottest trend these days. Colors and geometric designs of tribal jewellery are making a statement in the jewellery industry.
Double Tone Jewellery
Silver, Rose gold and very similar to it – dual tone jewellery are also in trend. It is made up of silver but has designs in gold and silver color.
Platinum is forever classic. Platinum is also called ‘white gold.’ It is expensive than Gold Jewellery. Again Platinum jewellery is not usually preferred for wedding day’s accessories but mostly gives a classic and elegant look at pre-wedding celebrations like Mehndi & Sangeet.
The platinum band is trendy for engagement ceremony, in which there are craving initials of name or full name of couples on their rings/bracelets. It is also a good option for gifting.
There is a different category of people who love to wear diamond jewellery on their wedding day. Diamond jewellery is also highly expensive. Diamond jewellery in uncut diamond design is fashionable these days. Love for diamond jewellery stays forever. Diamond bridal jewellery designs mostly in a combination of peals or colored gemstones.
Kundan & Polki – Jadau Jewellery
These jewellery designs are having the uniqueness of their own.
Kundan, also known as Bikaneri or Jaipuri jewellery, is a popular variation, wherein enameling with vivid colours and designs is on the reverse, while the Kundan setting is in the front. The city of Jaipur in Rajasthan has traditionally been the center for Kundan jewellery in India.
Polki jewellery is made up of rough, natural, uncut diamonds. It is also much shinier and much more expensive than Kundan jewellery. As you may know, Kundan is made up of glass stone (glass polki). However, Jadau is very wrongly misinterpreted, and people think it is a form of jewellery but it is not. Interestingly, it is a technique used in making Kundan and Polki jewellery. So while Kundan and Polki are stones, Jadau is a technique used to make Kundan/Polki jewellery.
Pearls & Gemstones
Pearls and gemstones are the elements which are fixed in jewellery pieces to make unique designs. Pearls are precious; Gemstones are readily available. Natural stones (crystals) are invaluable. Natural stones are not famous for bridal jewellery, especially. But pearl and gemstones are highly demanding. Colorful gemstones give a color matching look with the outfit-color. If you are not interested in so many colours, then pearls with silver or platinum or diamonds give you the best option to choose.
Before we conclude on Bridal Jewellery Trends, we need to tell you something important that Ojasvita Mahendru from ORNAMAS mentioned about the latest Bridal Jewellery Trends.
