Renowned jewellery designer Renu Oberoi shares jewellery trends that will rule the wedding season in 2016. A cascade of layered necklaces, sets of bangles, heavy earrings and often a maang tikka adorn the traditional bride. 2016 will be different with jewellery that is minimalistic yet elegant.
Shed uncuts: Brides, for a while now have been gracing Kundans, Jadaus and Uncuts as a major accessory on their D Day. However Renu Oberoi suggests that its time to move on to Diamonds. Be it minimalistic jewellery or the chokers, Diamonds will stand out as sheer classy on any wedding occasion.
Glittering glory: Diamond chokers adorn the Bride are an appropriate option for those women who are looking for something statement this year. Renu Oberoi says, “One can add color stones to add a trendy look to the jewellery which will help them stand out among the crowds of uncut.”
Flower power: For smaller wedding occasions add quirky to your kitty. Fun flower shapes or solitaire chains will highlight your collar bone and help draw attention
Minimal jewels: When it comes to your sangeet or haldi, instead of covering the forearms with a stack of bangles, the bride can prefer a trendy Handcuff with bold detailing. Go minimal on few occasions instead of going OTT for each ceremony to help avoid boredom with replicas
Glam factor: Oversized earrings styles in classic bijoux are perfect for light occasions. One can add edginess to their ensembles with a high collared outfit and a pair of bold earrings or trendy ear cuffs.
Ancient Treasure: Wedding jewellery plays an essential part in completing a bride’s entire look. Coloured stone maang tikkas are statement pieces and a popular pick among all brides, who believe in atraditional yet classy look. Single-stranded tikkas might be quite a conservative design, but that is just enough for some brides to look exceptionally elegant and fashionable. Antique gold sets also have a forever charm and can be used innovatively.
