Bridal wear has evolved over the years, today jadau chokers & necklaces worn close to the neck are in vogue. These sets involve long chandelier type earrings & pair of Paschalis or raised setting kadas to compliment the main necklace or choker, which normally is preferred with large uncut diamonds (polkis). South sea pearls, emeralds & rubies are often added below the main neck piece to colour coordinate with the bridal attire.
Family of the bride obviously wishes to express their joy adorning their best jewellery, yet they have to balance not overshadowing the lady of the moment, the bride. “I would suggest classic understated yet grand designs of necklaces of multiple single lines of graduating polkis with matching dangling earrings, also Haars, long necklaces like a long chain of polkis & emeralds, ” Says Falguni Mehta .
While choosing the jewellery for the wedding, apart from the budgets, most important is that the bride is comfortable carrying off the jewellery chosen, that she not be the mannequin to display the jewels but feel regal & glorious on her special day. A classic version of bridal wear is, large uncut diamonds set in graduating rows, interspaced by rubies & emeralds.
“Choice should not be based on trend but on what looks best on the bride and reflects her taste. We often create unique pieces after our interaction with the bride and family , adds Falguni.
