Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
This age-old British rhyme continues to inspire the brides in choosing their jewelry on the D-day. Love. Excitement. Happiness. Exuberance. Drama. And lots of drama. Isn’t what weddings are all about?
Let’s take a look at what is to come within the world of jewelry in 2016.
Go Bold with Gold
Gold never goes out of style! The chicest way to wear the precious metal in 2016 is in the form of slender bracelets that stack up to the wrist and articulate cocktail rings. While rose gold is 2015, yellow gold will be making a comeback in 2016.
Old is Gold (and silver and diamond and earrings and…! )
The vintage look will be the most in thing in 2016. So do not get upset if your grandmother gives her own old jewelry for your wedding. In fact, team it up creatively with modern jewelry. You can use that earring as your maang-teeka and you are ready to roll!
The Devil is in the Detail
Indian jewelry boasts of craftsmanship and quality. Choose your engagement ring with an intricate design and incorporate twist shanks into it.
A bride has to look feminine and delicate. What could be better than flowers to signify feminity and youthfulness? You will not get to see flowers only in the decoration now but also on the jewellery
A bracelet is a piece of jeweler that adorns the wrist or the forearm. The word bracelet is derived from the Latin word ‘brachium’ meaning arm. Bracelets are universal and versatile ornaments, displayed by both men and women. However the intricacies and designs incorporated in the bracelet vary for men and women. The history of bracelets started with bone and shell bracelets, moving to gold and silver after the discovery of these metals. Today bracelets are available in a variety of materials, designs and styles.
Bracelets for weddings and other special occasions are generally made of gold or silver. While gold seems to be a popular choice with women for daily wear as well as celebrations, the men prefer bracelets made of silver or other metals, reserving gold for exclusive occasions like weddings.
The different Indian bracelets can be classified on the basis of styles, which are as follows:
This type of silver bracelet is circular in structure like a bangle but unlike a bangle that is uniformly decorated throughout, a bracelet may have a highlighting decoration. This bracelet also gives the comfort of adjusting the size on the wrist. The bangle bracelet may also have a hinge and lock mechanism.
Women’s everyday bangle bracelets can be subtle and delicate, and opulent for party wear. They can be embellished with gem stones or use craftsmanship like Meenakari. Here are some designs for women’s bangle bracelets from Diagold available on our website, Strand of Silk.
