The divas of Bollywood do love their ethnic jewelry – and are always on the lookout for a suitable occasion to flaunt their precious gems, golds, silvers, and diamonds. Oh, how can we miss pearls in the mix? Nearly every diva from Vidya Balan to Aditi Rao Hydari, has time and again, paired their ethnic and western outfits with ethnic jewelry and looked simply ravishing.
Here’s looking at five such occasions when the divas of Bollywood charmed us with their ethnic jewelry.
Malaika Arora is one hell of a diva who hardly gets her fashion and accessories game wrong. Malla, as she is fondly called in the industry, loves to serve oomphy looks with a lot of style inspiration thrown in. Like how here, she has jazzed up the red saree with antique silver jewelry – from earrings to bangles to that stunning piece of the silver necklace. This look says diva in caps!
This hasli ( a kind of circular neckpiece) worn by the acting doyenne Vidya Balan adds a rustic touch to Balan’s overall appearance. Hence this ethnic statement jewelry can be considered if you are looking for options that are not run of the mill. We just love how it is making Balan look more powerful and adding stars to her personality.
There is one word to describe Alia Bhatt’s polki choker and that is stunning. This heavy work choker is delicately crafted and adds an air of elegance to the entire outfit. As it is neutral in color, it can be paired with any color and still look great. Ditch the earrings we say if you are planning to wear a heavy set like this. Instead, line your eyes with generous amounts of kohl and tie your hair in a bun for maximum effect.
Can you guess who Katrina Kaif is wearing in this image? Let us give you a hint: His name starts with S. Kudos to you if you have guessed it by now. If you haven’t, let us tell you the name. Katrina is wearing a Sabyasachi choker set in this image. This choker not only adds a dramatic flair to her look; it sets her apart from the others in the room.
Aditi Rao Hydari proves that you don’t need diamonds in order to shine. You can do that with some cool pieces of oxidized silver jewelry as well. Bonus if you are a pro at stacking your jewelry. This all silver jeweled look is something you can consider if you don’t want to follow a cookie-cutter approach to styling your jewelry. Diamonds, what?
