Diwali is the festival of lights and happiness. While partaking in the festivities and enjoying the company of family and friends, Diwali offers multiple occasions to dress up and party. Whether it’s a religious family gathering or a party with your friends, there’s no celebrating Diwali without donning our traditional Indian attire and of course, jewelry.
Diwali is synonymous with buying new clothes – and buying jewelry is considered auspicious during this festive season. Here are the latest jewelry trends that will have you looking every bit of a diva this Diwali!
Gold is always considered auspicious in India, so it comes as no surprise that gold jewellery is still a part of 2018’s jewellery trends, particularly during Diwali. Since time immemorial, gold jewelry has ruled the hearts of Indian women. Today, gold jewelry has taken on newer avatars. While traditional designs remain popular, there has been a shift towards minimalist designs, a fusion of gold and precious stones, gold jewelry with hints of other colors and many more. Undoubtedly, gold jewelry will always be a staple in every Indian woman’s jewelry drawer.
Many may consider pearl jewelry to be outdated, but this is far from the truth. Pearls are a classic and timeless gem that lends itself well to different designs. From dainty drops to a statement necklace or a simple single strand, pearl jewelry is a charming addition to any outfit. This Diwali, let your outfit shine with the addition of some elegant pearl jewelry. Take your pick from our extensive collection that has options for both lovers of tradition and modern fashion mavens alike. Whether you opt for a set of only pearls or a combination of pearls and other gemstones, rest assured you won’t go wrong with this Diwali trend. Be sure to take care of your pearl jewelry as they damage easily.
While minimalist pieces are still in the spotlight, statement pieces are making a comeback this Diwali. Both statement earrings and necklaces will make this trend the most prominent one during Diwali. Pick either one to take your outfit to the next level. If you’re considering getting yourself a pair of earrings, take a look at our blog on how to choose the right earrings for your face shape. Here’s another helpful blog on how to match necklaces to your neckline. You’ll be sure to have heads turning your way when you don this trend.
Diwali is a busy time of the year, and there is a lot of socializing that happens. Everyone is at the top of his or her fashion game. Take your Diwali costume up a notch with a maang tikka. Everyone will be focussing on wearing the latest jewelry trends but will be limiting their choices to necklaces and earrings, but maang tikkas or maang pattis are an excellent choice if you’re looking to stand apart from the crowd. They’re a unique piece of jewelry, as not many people would consider opting for a headpiece.
Diwali is a time when traditions shine through. From our religious ceremonies to the food we make and the outfits we wear – everything reflects centuries of culture. What better way to complement your traditional Indian clothes than with traditional jewellery? The newest trend this Diwali comes in the form of Kundan, Polki and Meenakari sets. While a relatively new trend, these traditional pieces exude ethnicity and are etched deep in our country’s history. Opt for an opulent conventional kundan set or one that has been re-imagined from the trends of yore!
Gemstones and Pops of Color
Like most Indian festivals, Diwali, too, is filled with colors. Match the festivities around you by wearing colorful pieces of jewelry! Go the bold route with bright, sparkly gemstones – think rubies, emeralds, sapphires and every gem imaginable. If you’d prefer a more subtle hint of color, consider getting yourself a piece in rose-gold or white gold. You can also check out Tints and Tinges collection for sophisticated and fun jewelry with charming pops of color that will add an air of wonder.
Fluid Forms and Contemporary Shapes
The final trend you can try this Diwali is all about fluidity – jewellery sets in a lot of contemporary shapes and silhouettes. Think animal-inspired patterns and geometric shapes. This trend will be a hit among those with a bold personality and like to experiment with their style. If you’d like to try something new this Diwali, or merely want a dramatic look to match the bright atmosphere around you, try out Gehna’s Tessera Collection.
