Bollywood and bling go hand-in-hand. From glittering chandeliers to enormous cocktail rings and diamond sets, our divas love their baubles. As the festivities pick up tempo, we show you how to flaunt your baubles like a star.
Ear cuff (Huma Qureshi)
The trendier replacement for earrings, ear cuffs have been in vogue since last year. From Sonam Kapoor to Alia Bhatt, our divas have flaunted them with aplomb. The design sported by Huma Qureshi is quite common. Wear one of these and you won’t need anything else.
Kamar band (Jacqueline Fernandez)
A jewelled kamar band or waist belt is an accessory that’s been hot on the ramp this season. Women with slender waists can wear it with saris or lehengas for some extra oomph. There are great imitation designs in the market, so it’s pocket friendly too.
Chandbalis (Sophie Choudry)
A piece of jewellery made famous by the Nizams of Hyderabad, chandbalis are perfect for traditional festive occasions. They come in polki, jadau and kundan studded with gemstones. Want to splurge this Diwali...shop for one of these.
Cocktail rings (Malaika Arora Khan)
From skulls to roses and geometric designs, cocktail rings come in various sizes and colours. Like cuffs, they too are meant for the fuss-free girls who love to spend their Diwali lighting bombs and rockets.
Haath phool (Nargis Fakhri)
This very traditional ornament found international representation when pop icon Cyndi Lauper wore them to the 2014 Grammy Awards function. Team them with a sari or Indo-western outfit to add some bling.
