Someone once said, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. We will not disagree! Diamond jewellery with its sparkling glamour and shine will never fail to look amazing on your wedding day. It goes with literally any outfit! No one can say that the glistening white jewels set with precious stones like emerald and ruby, do not do justice to the bride.

Diamonds can even be worn later on in life, on anniversary occasions, on birthdays, on your best friend’s sangeet, anywhere, you name it! They’re definitely worth investing in.

3. Antique Gold Jewellery Sets

Antique gold jewellery has been the go-to for brides for several decades now because of its ethnic look! Gold never fails to add that much needed charisma and delicateness that a bride demands on her D-day.

Layering ornate gold pieces in 22-karat yellow gold, with gold ball or gold bead chains, meenakari work, kundan haars etc is an extremely popular option among south Indian brides. We definitely think gold jewellery sets are timeless and classy!

4. Polki Diamond Jewellery Sets

Hailing from the grandiose Mughal era and specially handcrafted to make you feel like a royal, Polki diamond jewllery is all the rage in 2020. Made from natural unfinished diamonds, and set in a concave unit of 22 karat yellow gold, each polki unit exudes an old world charm from itself.

The lustre and shine of polki diamond jewllery , although not the same as polished cut diamonds, is enough to take anyone’s breath away! These days, open polki and Hyderabadi polki -which is set in silver instead of gold- are also trending for contemporary brides.

We think the rich royal look polki diamond jewellery gives is spectacular indeed.

5. Kundan Jewellery Set

Although very similar looking to Polki, Kundan jewellery uses glass instead of raw diamonds in individual units. The irregular stones give a very appealing and classy vibe to the jewellery.

Kundan designs have been evolving over the years and new contemporary designs are very much in trend nowadays! Kundan is also very affordable compared to polki jewellery and looks as charming as polki. So why not go for Kundan encrusted with semi precious stones for a budgeted wedding look?


6. Guttapusalu Wedding Jewellery

“Pusalu” means beads and “gutta” means bunch in Telugu. So guttapasulu literally translates to pearls arranged in bunches. Guttapusalu bridal necklaces look exquisite and make you feel like a total princess! Long or short, the neckpieces are designed in traditional patterns and flower motifs and set with different gem stones. We truly believe they look magical with matching earrings and maang tikkas.

7. Layered Pearl Satlada necklaces

A satlada haar is basically a bridal necklace made of 7 strings of pearls, in addition to precious gem stones, diamonds, polki work etc on the haar. This type of bridal jewellery originated from the Nizams of Hyderabad and has definitely caught on in south Indian culture. It is eye catching and looks extremely regal.

One can wear the satlada haar by itself or can pair it with a choker piece for a dazzling display of opulence.

Multi-stranded emerald bead necklaces are definitely trending all over in 2020! Designed either with pendants or just solitary bead strands, these necklaces look queenly and luxurious. The deep green complements almost all primary and secondary colors and hence, can be worn with any outfit!

9. Statement Chokers

Who doesn’t love a beautiful statement choker neckpiece? We’ve spotted innumerable brides sporting extravagant choker pieces and can we just say, they look stunning! A choker is a highly versatile neckpiece and can be worn with any type of outfit, even western wear.

The cascading elements in choker pieces so gracefully crown the necks of our beautiful brides, we are simply in awe each time we spot one.

For Haldi and Mehndi ceremonies, more and more brides are opting for floral jewellery sets complete with floral neckpieces, earrings, floral maang tikkas and haath phools. These jewellery sets are one of-a-kind while also being colorful and vibrant. We think they look so fun and refreshing;a relief from conventional heavy jewellery.

Definitely recommend you to go ahead with this trend for your Haldi ceremony!
