Indian Bridal Jewelry for the Minimalist Bride

The minimalist bride is different. She chooses to go a different way and avoid the loudness and glitter. She goes with earthy tones and tranquil colors to create a soothing look that is both elegant and understated. She prefers delicate, simple pieces of jewelry that add a touch of sophistication to her overall look without overpowering it. Let’s take a closer look at some Indian wedding jewels.


What to keep and what not to

If you’re creating a minimal look for your special day, you can consider not wearing some pieces of your traditional Indian jewelry. Not only will it make the entire look a little more elegant and chic, but will also allow the viewer to focus more on the pieces that you did keep. Ditch the nose rings, maathapattis, or maangtikas if you have to, and create a minimal look that truly suits you and the outfit of your choice.

Pick your shade

The color of the attire plays a big role in selecting ornaments that can with it. If you’re going for a muted color palette that contains earthy shades such as beige and soft pink, you can go for dainty and subtle pieces that create a simple, calming, and soothing look. Going with stones that complement the color of your outfit is a great way to add a splash of color to the look.

Know the balance

A minimal look is not always about picking smaller pieces of jewelry. It really is about how a bride can express more while using fewer pieces of adornment. So, knowing how to balance it all can get a little tricky. You can start with a little experimentation by pairing different pieces together. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll know what pieces of jewels team up best with your outfit, and creating a sober look will become way easier.

Stunning Bridal Jewelry Pieces to Ace the Minimal Look

Now that you know the ‘how’, let’s take a look at the pieces of Indian jewels that you’ll need in your trousseau to nail that minimal look.

Small/Stud Earrings

The classic dangling jhumkas are great but when it comes to picking jewelry for the minimalist bride, stud earrings are perfect. Small, sparkling studs can add the shine that your minimal attire needs while keeping it low-key. If you’re trying to add some color to the mix, you can pick a set of earrings with gemstones that go well with your outfit’s color.

Apart from keeping it low-key, earrings have a rather important responsibility. Picking smaller earrings or studs with a wedding outfit can help you keep your statement piece in the spotlight while the subtle shine of your earrings adds to the entire look.

Dainty Maangtika

If you’re hesitant about removing the maangtika from your look, given that it is an important part of Indian bridal jewelry and essential for a wedding day look, we completely understand. You can still create your minimal wedding day look by picking a light maangtika. Choosing something subtle and delicate can add to your minimalistic look. And if your maangtika matches your stud earrings, you’ll have a masterpiece.

A Subtle and Elegant Wedding Necklace

Your necklace brings the whole look together. So, it can easily become your statement piece. Going with a minimal necklace set that blends in well and teams up with other pieces of your Indian bridal jewelry is the safer option. But if you’re trying to add a sophisticated touch to the entire look, go with a necklace that takes the spotlight.

Earthy tones and diamonds are best friends. If you’re picking a necklace that can become your statement piece, going with diamonds is a great option. Feel free to add some vivid gemstones into the mix to add some flavor. Your exquisite diamond necklace can become the heart of your look while the gemstones add a pop of color and your dainty maangtika and stud earrings add more shine to the look.

A Sleek Choker Necklace

A choker necklace is sleek and elegant and will bring out your best features. It will also pair well with all your other pieces of jewelry and give the entire outfit a more regal look. You can pick a choker with kundan set gemstones and diamonds and some meenakari work or enamel details to make sure that it catches every eye.
