Diwali costume jewellery

Diwali, the festival of lights, is on the 5th November this year. Its a special time of year because everyone gets all dressed up and goes to each others houses to wish everyone a happy new year, since Diwali is seen as the hind new year. So what are girls going to wear as their costume jewellery this year? Whats in trend when it comes to asian costume jewellery and how can you get the look?

Costume jewellery is costume jewellery at the end of the day whether its indian costume jewellery or european costume jewellery. So why do we differentiate between the to? Well indian costume jewellery is a lot more big, statement, colourful and altogether bling. This diwali is no exception. This diwali wear a pair of statement earrings, or a statement cocktail ring. These can be any colour, literally, since your indian outfit will be just as colourful. You can even wear a hair tikka, which is authentically indian costume jewellery. Even a finger ring or what indians call a panja which is a ring attached to a bracelet would look stunning this diwali.

So the weekend is looming and so is Katy Perry’s wedding to Russell brand in exotic India. From what we have heard is that it will be a full on Indian wedding with elephants and indian clothing and what we were wondering was if Katy will wear indian costume jewellery. Well if she is having an indian exotic theme wedding she will definitely be wearing indian costume jewellery we think. But what type of costume jewellery should  she wear?

Well as far as indian costume jewellery goes there are alot of trends and styles available, and it really does depend on what type of dress and colour theme Katy Perry is going to have. Nowadays alot of indians have weddings that have a european twist to it so the bride would wear a white dress with an alternative indian feel to it with crystal bridal jewellery as their costume jewellery. Or if the bride decides to have a traditional asian wedding then the bride can go for a full on red and gold costume jewellery, to match their red dress with gold embroidery. And then there is a change of outift for the reception and for this you can have just about any colour costume jewellery.

We cant wait to see the photos from Katy Perry’s wedding to Russell Brand. Keep a look out on our blog for the photos from the wedding.


A brides big day is so important and therefore so is the wedding costume jewellery that she chooses. Not only is the dress and the shoes important, but your wedding jewellery is just as important as it really does finish your outfit off: you cant walk down the aisle without a pair of earrings on or a cuff bracelet now can you. But what should you chose on your big day? How do you know what type of costume jewellery is going to look best?

Well you really need to start by looking at what type of dress and what theme you are having for your big day as this will really dictate your bridal jewellery on your big day. So if you are having an extravagant wedding and you like your bling, then why not go for crystal costume jewellery? Crystal costume jewellery can look stunning when it shines so beautifully in the light. And it doesnt have to be large earrings for example, unless you want them to be large chandelier earrings, but you can go for small studs like the crystal flower earrings.

Or if you are going for an indian themed wedding (like Katy Perry’s and Russell Brand’s upcoming wedding- which we cant wait for!) then you can go for asian wedding jewellery. This costume jewellery thats large, colourful and so ornate.
