Hottest Jewelry Styles In 2018:
Check out the ten different jewelry styles, which will make you look like a stunning diva in no time. They are not something fresh-out-of-the-oven, but very much a part of your family treasure trove. Read on to rediscover their charm and appeal.
This ‘Ear-love’ is a classic example of the Indian ethnic jewelry. Jhumkas can be of any size – the small ones can be worn for daily wear whereas the big ones look good for weddings and grand events.
If you are wearing a big jhumka with a heavily embellished saree, then you can skip wearing a heavy necklace to avoid looking OTT. You can accessorize the look further by wearing bangles or rings; a gajra in the hair and a bindi on the forehead. Don’t worry you are ready to turn heads for the right reasons!
Here you will find sisterly love. And how? Chandbali is a sister of the jhumka. While the jhumka comes in the shape of a cup, the shape of a chandbali, as the name suggests, is that of a crescent moon. A chandbali can also vary in size- from small ones to big ones. In fact, credit goes to recent blockbusters like Padmaavat for having made wearing huge chandbalis a trend these days.
The good thing about a chandbali is that it gels well with almost any costume – lehengas, saris, salwar suits, anarkalis and for that matter any other traditional Indian attire. Pick a pair of chandbalis right away to look ethereal this festive season.
3. Silver jewelry:
Worried are you that you can’t always wear heavy-duty gold or diamond jewelry like your favorite stars? Relax, silver jewelry is also loved by the Bollywood ladies, particularly in hot summers, as a fashion pairing with cool cotton outfits and handloom saris. Actors like Rakul Preet Singh and Nayanthara are often spotted wearing beautiful oxidized silver jewelry.
Another plus point of investing in silver jewelry is that it is good to go with both Indian and Indo-Western attires.
Thanks to Deepika Padukone (in Padmaavat), South-based actor Keerthy Suresh (in Mahanati) and many more period films, the choker is a piece of jewelry which has made a huge comeback in the fashion scene.
An age-old jewel, a choker is worn as a tight-fit around the neck (not so tight that it chokes you). The queens and royal ladies in ancient times wore a choker as a statement jewelry. You too can wear one to highlight your delicate neck and add some regal elegance to your desi look.

Things To Remember While Buying Jewelry:
Bear the following tips in mind while shopping for jewelry:
- While buying earrings, choose a pair that not only frames your face well, it also complements your hair, eye color, and skin tone. Example – if you have long hair, select a pair in a color or metal finish, which is likely to be more visible depending on your hair color.
- Choose designs that complement your sartorial sense. A dull outfit will look special with the right jewelry. So choose jewelry that brings a simple outfit to life.
