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.

If you have any ideas of what costume jewellery our readers can wear this diwali, why not drop us a line below and share your thoughts?


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.

Beautiful wedding jewellery….

When you are  the blushing bride you want to have the most stunning dress, venue, shoes and most importantly wedding jewellery. A bride must have beautiful wedding jewellery, and whats classed as beautiful wedding jewellery, well thats what we are here to tell you. Wedding jewellery comes in so many different styles, shapes, designs and colours that you really are spoilt for choice so you need some guidance in choosing your wedding jewellery.

Whatever wedding dress you chose (which will be the first this you will chose over your jewellery) thats whats going to dictate what wedding jewellery you are going to chose. So if you have a plunging neckline then you are going to probably want a crystal necklace that can accentuate this plunging neckline. Or if you have a strapless gown you might want to only go for chandelier earrings to show off your beautiful neckline. Also if you have a heavily embroidered wedding gown you might want to go for lighter costume jewellery like small stud earrings or a delicate bracelet.

Wedding jewellery is also a very personal choice of costume jewellery. You might want to go with what you are comfortable in and also what matches your theme aswell.
