Finding The Perfect Bangle/Bracelet

We usually just wear our everyday hand jewelry with our outfits when there’s a special occasion, which is not wrong. But sometimes, you have to listen to the outfit and know what it needs to look extra special. While a simple bracelet may work with a traditional South Indian saree, a hathphool or a kundan bangle with meenakari work can add more charm to it. So, finding the right piece is essential as it can help you spice up your outfit. Let’s take a look at some different kinds of outfits and the kinds of hand jewelry you can pair with them.

Styling an Indian outfit is not very difficult. It’s just like Indian cuisine. All you need are the right ingredients and your food will have all the flavor you need. Traditional Indian ensembles are very colorful and easily team up with Indian jewelry.

You can go all traditional and go for pieces belonging to the home of your outfit. For instance, if you’re donning a traditional Maharashtrian ensemble, you can go with glass bangles that match the color of your outfit and stack them up with patlya gold bangles or other gold bracelets. Similarly, for traditional Punjabi attire, you can go with bangles encrusted with stones and create a colorful and interesting look.

An Indian ensemble is great when you’re trying to create a fusion look. Create an ensemble that has the flavors of different states by pairing your bangles and bracelets with different outfits. For a tranquil and serene look, bracelets encrusted with pearls can be your go-to option. They pair up well with minimal outfits and can give you a simple and sophisticated look. You can style them with earthy tones and black or white lehengas.

You can go with kundan jewelry if you’re trying to add more grandeur to your look. With its colorful stones, a kundan bracelet is sure to add more flair to your Indian attire. They are versatile and so, one bracelet can be used to adorn various outfits.

If you’re looking for bangle and bracelet options that can go with your chic western ensemble, you can start with the metals. Gold and silver bangles and bracelets are sure to spruce up your western dresses and add more glam to them. Since there are infinite designs when it comes to gold and silver, you can never run out of options. Choose a design that goes well with the vibe of your outfit and other pieces of jewelry and create a complete look.

If just gold and silver are too plain for you, diamonds can be your best friends. They are sure to add more luster to your attire and make it more noticeable. The best part about diamond bracelets and bangles is that they can go with almost all colors. A bracelet encrusted with diamonds can be your statement piece and can surely turn heads wherever you go. If you want to create a symmetrical look, you can get yourself a pair of diamond-encrusted bangles and can pull off any outfit with them.

For a bohemian look, go with what matches your style. Go crazy. Play with pieces and colors and come up with your own special look. You can create a unique look with loose bracelets or cuffs and spice up your edgy outfits with ease. You can also create a stack with different metal bracelets and include your watch.

Fusion outfits are always interesting to style. Since they contain elements from both Indian and western styles, they can carry jewelry that goes with both.

Indian bridal jewelry has long been synonymous with the dazzle of polki, the traditional uncut diamond style.

However, the world of traditional Indian bridal jewelry goes beyond polki, offering a diverse array of choices. Nestled among carefully woven designs, these gemstones are the driving force of the kaleidoscopic hues of Indian bridal jewelry. Today, we will take a deep dive into the enchanting world of gemstones, offering not only aesthetic beauty but also cultural and symbolic significance.
