How is jewelry shopping different for the modern bride?
The modern bride doesn’t look at jewellery the way generations before her had. It isn’t something you wear once or twice in your life and then keep in the locker forever. Today’s bride looks at jewellery in terms of functionality and design.
For instance, most brides now purchase two to three smaller sets which they wear together on the wedding day, but separately for other occasions.
In addition, they ensure that the accessories they team up with it be it bangles, earrings, tikkas etc are designed in such a way that they stand out individually as well.
What are this season’s biggest Wedding Jewellery trends?
This season’s biggest bridal looks are definitely Polki chokers and Passa’s.
