Indian festivities always bring with them a sense of togetherness, joy and merriment, with sweets, meeting family and so much more. Be it Diwali, Pongal, or Navratri, celebrating festivals and happy occasions is something we all love!
Another thing we love is getting dressed up to attend these festivities, and that can get a bit confusing at times. After all, you’re meeting so many relatives and family friends after a long time, and you want to look your best! Choosing the right Jewelry can make or break your festive look and that's where we exquisite pieces come into play.
Here we'll talk about the dos and don'ts of festive Jewelry and provide you tips on how to choose and styleTarinika's stunning creations to ensure you stand out in the crowd.
When it comes to jewelry, matching your outfit and jewelry can be difficult if you are not sure of the aesthetic that you’re going for with it. Different outfits can be paired with different types of jewelry to create unique looks.
Oxidised Silver Jewelry
For a lehenga-blouse combo, you can go for oxidised silver jewelry. This works best with colours like red, pink, blue and purple, and with colours that have a cooler undertone, to create contrast. You can pair the Maati Square Statement Floral Antique Oxidized Choker Set with the Maati Filigree Antique Oxidized Bangles for a statement look on your favourite saree or lehenga ensemble. Add the Maati Peacock Antique Oxidized Nose Pin for the cherry-on-top.
Cubic Zirconia Jewelry
Cubic zirconia is a stone that has gained a considerable amount of popularity in recent years due to how versatile the stone is, and how beautifully it pairs with a variety of metals and how inexpensive it is as compared to diamonds. These stones also require less care and caution while travelling and tend to be lightweight. What’s more, this stone only makes the wearer shine brighter!
The best way to look elegant and put together, is with simple stonework that stands out. Although cubic zirconia looks great with anythins, you can stick to lighter and more pastel shades of sarees, and outfits that will also draw attention to the colour of the metal the stone is set in.
Why not pair the Ambre Nakshatra CZ Long Necklace Set and the Sonali Nakshatra CZ Necklace Set with the Floral Elegance CZ Choker Set to create a look similar to this one? You can add Satina Delicate CZ Bangles to it to complete the look.
Rings and Bangles
Accessories are the best way to liven up any outfit. They can also act as statement pieces with your outfit. If your outfit has warm tones, go for gold jewelry, and if your outfit has more of a cool tone to it, you can opt for something in silver. However, you can also mix up once in a while and wear what you think goes well with each outfit.
You can never go wrong with rings like the Renn Antique Ring, and Classic Floral Crescent Antique Ring. You can also try Amara Gold Plated Tribal Bangles with the Sarah Nakshatra CZ Bangles for an understated, yet elegant look.
Choosing the Right Pieces
If you still find it confusing to match the right jewelry with your outfits, you can always refer to the model images on our website. It also helps to bear in mind that jewelry and outfits naturally go together, so a simple overview of what you’re wearing should be enough to help you find something you’ll look great in.
We’ve already discussed a few ways in which you can elevate an outfit with jewelry, so you can keep the same instructions in mind. A lesser known fact is that Tribal and Antique jewelry styles go with everything, so keep these two styles as back up when you feel too confused.
Now, as with most things, there are ways that probably aren’t the best when it comes to styling your jewelry. Here are a few things you can avoid when you’re dressing up:
Just as easy as it can be to choose the right type of jewelry to wear, you can also easily wear too much and take away from your outfit. In order to avoid such a mishap, keep your neckline in mind when wearing your jewelry. Choker necklaces go with most necklines but will take away from an asymmetric top.
For off-the-shoulder and asymmetric tops and blouses, look for statement earrings that will add some weight to your shoulders, balancing out the look.
The second thing to keep in mind is that comfort is key. On a festival day, when you’ll be out all day, standing or sitting, or walking around – the last thing you want is to feel how heavy your jewelry is. If you plan on staying at an event for a long time, bring your jewelry box along to take them off and store them properly for your next wear.
Remember that your comfort matters about all else, and that you can have fun and wear jewelry that flatters and keeps you comfortable.
Caring for your jewelry is the third most important point. After an event, remember to keep your Tarinika jewelry back in its velvet lined box. You can also wipe it down with a microfiber cloth or the one provided with the jewelry in the box. If you find that to be cumbersome, you can always invest in a jewelry box and keep your jewelry out of direct sunlight, and fresh air. It is advisable to keep a piece of chalk or a packet of silica gel in the same box to wick away any moisture in the vicinity.
Wooden boxes are a no-no for jewelry storage as they are moisture magnets. Do remember to clean your jewelry with a microfiber cloth occasionally to prevent tarnishing.
The key to look great on festive occasions is simple – follow these dos and don’ts and watch yourself transform! Don’t worry too much when it comes to jewelry pairings as it is only as much of an effort as you make it. Choosing jewelry can be a simple process with help, and we’re with you at each step!
