Manushi Singh, Co-Founder, Rare Heritage, A Mehta Emporium Initiative shares, “Based on the last few years, we at Rare Heritage have seen a tremendous inflation in the demand for traditional gold temple jewellery. We cater to over 100 brides per year and as per this rise in requests for jewellery, it is apparent that the new age contemporary brides are all for traditional golden jewellery. A contemporary bride who wears sorbet colours or fusion outfits always wants to add that bit of heritage and tradition to her ensemble, hence the selection of golden temple jewellery.”

“Aqua color jewellery is a spring awakening trend, more like a cousin to the rainbow jewellery trend. Aqua pastel shades offer a more wearable and versatile take on color, which is an easier investment to make for consumers. In addition, Garden Jewellery is a rage too; we feel nothing says summers like floral jewellery. Florals bring out the parts of ourselves that are soft and welcoming. Everyone looks relaxed & happy in florals. And this combination of diamonds in the floral form just do the right justice to the mood. Last but the not the least another trend we must talk about is Temple jewellery; at Zewar, we take pride in creating handcrafted temple jewellery. It’s not just a craft. It’s an art that draws heavily from the rich culture and heritage of our land, and temple jewellery is a testimony to that. Also nothing can match the grandeur and exquisiteness of Indian temple jewellery” highlights Ajay Jain, Zewar by Valchandson

Yash Agarwal – Designer & Creative Director, Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas Jaipur opines, “Inspired by the maharani necklace, one of the biggest bridal trends for this wedding season is multiple layering of the neck pieces. Chokers since have always been in vogue and will never grow old fashioned, Brides can pair beautifully carved chokers with multiple mid-length or long-length necklaces to create a majestic look on her big day. Another trend to look forward to is floral/flower inspired jewelry. Jewelry and nature go hand in hand and flowers are synonymous of the season – making floral jewelry a must-have accessory to outfits this summer creating a classic yet contemporary look.”

“An Indian traditional jewelry style that has found its way through the generations and is now in the forefront of the modern fashion trends while keeping its heritage alive. We feel like the term Navratna has finally found its way in the modern girl’s jewelry dictionary and slowly, her jewelry box. Whether you’re a maximalist or a minimalist, this rainbow hued jewelry trend is for everyone with its dainty elegance and cheerful persona. It’s almost as if every shade of the rainbow is crafted into a single piece. In a traditional definition or contemporary, the navratna jewellery is taking over 2019 and how!” Concludes Abhishek Raniwala, Director, Raniwala 1881.
