Quintessential Jewelry Guide for the Summer Bride

Quintessential Jewelry Guide for the Summer Bride

Summer weddings are all about colorful orchard mehendis and balmy sunset sangeets. If you’re one to party it up basking in the summer warmth, you’re going to need an army of pretty-meets-minimal ornaments to bring in the revelries.

Arm Cuff

Embellished arm cuffs add oodles of spunk, vivacity and grace to your bridal avatar. Clinch a couple higher up on your forearm or let it extend up to your wrists for vintage glamour. Select a piece that complements your outfit’s color and craftsmanship and ensure that the blouse style balances the look with ease.

One Finger Hathphools

Choose from styles ranging from simple gold designs to those that are studded with kundan and other precious stones. Encrusted in white gold or platinum, when combined with henna adorned hands, they give a heavily embellished look to any bride.

Cocktail Jewelry

Statement rings and neckpieces work wonders to elevate any look, be it for the bridal brunch or the fun-filled pool party. As a bride, your cocktail jewelry collection must have a little more bling, snazz and glamour so you stand out in the crowd.

Crown Style Maang Tikkas

Forget the classic matha-patti and grab your kundan/jadav necklace and convert it to a crown style tikka! Studded with emeralds, rubies and diamonds, these can be easily passed down as family heirlooms. It makes for another jewel to add to your collection.

Double Stranded Necklaces

A close fitting choker along with a longer “chandan haar” or two sequences of kundan strings attached at the ends make for a royal look. Double stranded jewelry is the one armour you need to make sure you stand out in the crowd on your wedding day.


Known for its rich, high on style appeal, you can customize a classic diamond necklace complete with emerald, topaz, sapphire or rubies and pair it with your cocktail dress for your pre-wedding bash or reception.

Peacock Motifs

Traditionally peacocks are a symbol of beauty and elegance and wedding jewelry with peacock motifs are the next big thing. You must opt for hues that blend in with the colors of the outfit. And if you choose embroidered patterns that also have peacock designs, the end result will be splendid.

After seasons of larger-than-life statement making jewelry, these bridal essentials, though tiny in size and minimalist in essence, make as much of an impact as your minty summer glow!
