Diwali is all about glitter and shine. It is considered auspicious to buy gold and silver on Dhanteras. So, why not invest in some silver jewellery this year? These exquisite pieces will be your life-long assets and you can customised them later as well. My Kolkata lists some of the silver pieces you must have in your collection.
If you are buying silver for the first time, invest in these dainty studs. They are not only stylish, but are also affordable. You can pair these up with your ethnic, casual, office wear or lounge wears. Most of these studs come encrusted with semi-precious stones, like emeralds, pearls and rubies — just perfect for the free-spirited woman of today.
Earrings are a must in your collection. If you are a jhumka lover, the idea would be to save enough to find pieces within your budget. You can also opt for brands that offer EMI services. These earrings can be paired with any attire. Just chuck the necklace if you are wearing big earrings.
If you have nose piercing, then it is always good to wear a silver or gold nosepin rather than an imitation one. Purchasing a delicate silver nosepin is always worth the money. They go well with all kinds of outfits and highlight your facial features as well. You also get nosepins studded with semi-precious stones. Those who do not have a piercing, can always look for false ones.
Pick ornaments that are intrinsically hand-crafted using natural stones. If you are a ring lover, you must buy one for yourself this festive season. From singular, bold rings to ones studded with stones or mother of pearl inlays — they come in various shapes and designs.
Want to make heads turn this Diwali? Look for chunky necklaces that’ll give you the right look and do not demand any more accessories to go with it. Put on your best dress, apply light makeup, wear the necklace and you are ready to go.
Those who are married, why not opt for a silver mangalsutra this season? Silver is light on the skin and much recommended as daily wear. The pendants come in different shapes and sizes and will make you stand out in the crowd.
Opt for simple bangles, kadas or stone-studded silver ratanchurs. You can team up a bulky kada with a western outfit or try a combination of light to thick bangles to go with your lehengas or saris. And those who want to try something different, can pair a ratanchur with an indo-western outfit.
A wristlet is a hot favorite among those who like to keep it minimal. You can get your own evil-eye bracelet. It is believed to exude positive energy around you.
Remember the maang tika worn by Aishwarya Rai in Jodhaa Akbar? Now you can get one for yourself too. Maang tika adds to your facial charm. Pair it with lighter earrings or choose not to wear earrings at all. You can tie your hair in a bun or back brush and let it loose at the back.
If you are a payal lover, opt for a silver one, which would be long-lasting and comfortable as well. Anklets can often be customised as per your likings. You can also consider a pair of heavy payals to wear during festivals.
