Gone are the days when jadau earrings and meenakari neckpieces paired themselves comfortably with common staples like ghagras, cholis and saris. The trick is to go adventurous this season and that’s precisely what Julia Roberts did with panache. The Van Cleef & Arpels necklace set against her black YSL dress helped her gain some major fashion brownie points.

Gold accessories are a huge trend as seen on the runways of Raakesh Agarwal, Lanvin and Dolce and Gabbana. Add a gold cuff to your look next time you head out for a party to make a fashion statement that’s entirely individualistic and personal. No matter how slick your outfit is, there’s always a piece of Indian jewellery that meets the mood.

A great way to blend the East and West with picture perfection is to team outfits of a sharper silhouette with intricate, traditional jewellery. If you prefer making a subtle statement, opt for diamonds. Wear coloured semi-precious to reflect your funky personality. Dust those jhumkas and team it with a simple jumpsuit and if you are feeling adventurous, pin it to your hair to transform it into a fabulous hair accessory.This summer when you pick up a cocktail ring think, thewa, meenakari or even vintage gold for the glam factor in everyday fashion with a cocktail ring.

In any case, Indian jewellery has gone from dreary and boring to modern and contemporary and as versatile as they get.
