Brimming with exuberance and an exhibition of glee, vintage jewellery is well-known for their opulent festivities. There is no dearth of colours; brilliance, fun and royal as the jewellery is drenched in its ample classic morals. Whether you are a sister of the bride, bride’s friend or even a friend or sister of the groom, you cannot just make a statement with your attires, but if you pick a striking piece of vintage jewellery, then that’s half the look pinned already.
Gautam Soni, Managing Director, The House of MBj shares some ways to turn ‘something old’ to ‘something new’; how to style your vintage piece for this wedding season.
Add vintage earrings to your plain coloured outfits: Meenakari or waterfall earrings from your grandma’s treasure box are a statement piece which looks extraordinary with simple Anarkali, shararas, and Indian gowns, especially when your outfit needs a pop of colour to add some more drama. The best part is, when you wear them, you don't need too much more jewellery to pull off a spectacular look. So, this wedding season looks fabulous and fierce with a hint of vintage earrings in your breezy outfit.
Layer up: If you are a fan of layering your jewellery, which is a stylish skill every woman should master, think of mixing your antique jewellery with modern ones this wedding season. Try adding a simple heirloom Rani Haar (a multi-string Kundan or Polki necklace) to layer with their choker or Gulbandh. You can play with different shapes and sizes of gemstones, textures, and styles of necklaces to create your very own unique look. You can also layer it up with modern Choker and Long Necklace. Layering up will embrace a modern and classic look at the same time.
Go delicate with temple jewellery: Temple jewellery has been seen through centuries, thanks to our moms and grandmothers. Temple jewellery has found its way again this season and designs like matha Patti, raanihaar, baju bandh, Kamar bandh, and kanphool are very much prevalent among women. If you want to look every bit charming but at the same time you don’t want to go overboard then this is the piece that is functional and will look great with any kind of Indian attire.
Repurpose grandma’s pearls: Vintage pearl necklaces with tiny earrings can be the most classy and graceful necklaces that match almost every type of traditional outfit - from lehenga cholis to traditional saris. An exquisite pearl choker with oversized chains, cool metallic accents, and coloured beads, can give a gorgeous touch to a light-weight lehenga.
