Wondering what happens when Bollywood coalesces with Jaipur’s traditional mystique to give us one of the best contemporary jewellery of the era?
Jaipur, a land adorned with emeralds and rubies is an epitome of alluring ornaments. Traditional aesthetic designs put together with peacock, flowers and elephant motifs and excellence of craftsmanship make the jewels every bride’s wish to bestow their beauty through these pieces of flamboyance. These stunning Jaipuri designs have not only bewitched the wedding’s glimmer and flare but has also enriched the charisma of weddings on reel.
One such movie is Veere Di Wedding starring Sonam.K.Ahuja and Kareena.K.Khan which has poured out a bold fashion statement spicing up the usual ‘sati-savitri’ wedding looks, yet retaining the elegance of the feminine grace.
Showcasing the glamorous collection from the wardrobe of Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla to creating ‘every bride’s dream look’ through eye-catching jewels by Jaipur’s oldest and most reputed jewellery house; Birdhichand, Veere Di Wedding has it all to make your jaw drop.
The characters in the movie have been minimally accessorized breaking the stereotype of wearing heavy full neck jewellery and ornamentations. Alluring jewels adorned by Sonam and Kareena perfectly complement their wedding attire.
- Pearls beautified into a single-stranded necklace enhance Kareena’s neckline and portray the delicacy of a bride. Gold and pearl beads infuse richness to the subtle colour palette of ivory and yellow. Hair embellished by a dainty wreath of flowers enlightens her fervour for the occasion.
- Contrary to Kareena’s finesse, Sonam’s whimsical look stands out as flashy and exciting. Indeed the fashionista herself never fails to miss the mark! Emulating the long dramatic cape on her back are the ‘Jhumkas’ by Birdhichand. These long strands of Kundan earrings strung together with tiny drops of emerald dripping from the jhumkas and studded half-cut emerald grab the attention of the audience as an exquisite piece of intricacy.
These looks inspire today’s women to be true to who they are. Go subtle or bold and flashy, go trendy or vintage but be the perfect bride you’ve once imagined to be!
