From Anushka Sharma last year to Deepika Padukone last week, the most keenly followed brides have been championing vintage jewelry styles. Wedding trends this season have been all about reviving the classics. The allure of bridal reds and golds, heritage jewels and sarees and classic cuts. We take our pick of some of the jewelry that would complete your look, whether you are the bride or her best friend.
The Rajwada Choker
You cannot get over this OTT choker style that sits well with both well-tailored saree blouses and lehnga choli. You can opt for a kundan style choker, like Neha Dhupia’s simple but sensational piece which she wore for her wedding. Or take a cue from Deepika who complemented her red and gold wedding attire with a choker that was reminiscent of her Padmaavat look. Even Anushka Sharma wore a massive choker for her reception, looking regal and ravishing in a red Sabyasachi saree.
