Wedding earrings are a piece of your wedding jewellery that can really change the way your whole look turns out. You may wear big chandbaalis, long hanging chandeliers, jhumkis or round earrings. There is a myriad of styles but one has to be really selective and diligent while picking the right pair that complements their look perfectly. When it comes to jewellery, the bigger is not always the better. The wedding earrings that you choose need not necessarily be over the top. Sometimes a more elegant minimalistic piece attracts more eyeballs and compliments than a huge chunk of jewellery does. The idea is to curate the whole look together in a holistic and stylish way.
Wedding Earring Designs That Every Bride-to-be Must Check Out
With wedding shopping, a bride is engulfed in too many decisions to make, a lot of stuff to shop for. In all the chaos and overburden of tasks, she sometimes loses the right sense of what would look most stunning on her. But we would never want our brides to look anything short of drop-dead gorgeous and impeccably put together. We present to you some of the most stunning styles of wedding earrings that you can bookmark as an inspiration for your bridal look.
– If you are a bride who loves a heavy jewellery look, go in for heavy wedding earrings in polka or kundan with a gold base. But while choosing the pair, do keep in mind the exclusiveness of the earrings. Look for something that is stylish and stands out from the crows. A regular style that has been worn and seen so many times would not add any newness to your look. Also, the shape, size and the length should suit your face cut well. For girls with a round face, almost any shape looks good on you. But for others, wear the earrings to see how much it enhances your face cut and actually adds to your personality.
– We love these long earrings worn by Alia Bhatt. Though they are lengthy, the length is balanced out by the fact that half of the earring is actually worn on the ear. The whole look turns out quite luxuriously embellished. Rather than being spread out vertically, earrings that have a beautiful horizontal layout turn out more flattering for most Indian face cuts. Try something smaller in size but more robust.
– There cannot be anything that spells traditional Indian wedding jewellery as beautifully as gold jhumkis. You can have semi-precious stones or kundans embedded into them to elevate the richness quotient. Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor has often been spotted wearing gold jhumkis with her Indian outfits and we are not complaining. She does look ethereal. If you want to style yourself up like a classic Indian bride, then go in for a gold choker neckpiece along with gold jhumkis, just the way Shraddha Kapoor wears it here. With black kohled eyes, the look has an unmissable enchanting old-world beauty charm to it.
– For the modern Indian brides, who do not like to do anything in a stereotypical, conventional way, these white embellished jhumkis can be quite a stealer for any of your pre-wedding looks.
– Chandbaalis have been trending as popular wedding earrings jewellery for quite some time now. Actor Deepika Padukone can be duly accorded some credit for bringing about this popularity as she does some great justice to these earrings, often pairing them with her Indian suits and attires. Even for her pre and post-wedding Indian looks, she was seen flaunting chandbaalis at a lot of her appearances. The great thing about these wedding earrings is that they look very regal and often suit most of the face types. In fact, they enhance the whole feminine and graceful vibe of the Indian bride. Also, post your wedding, you can just wear these earrings with any of your Indian or fusion attires and they look stunning on their own. Refrain from pairing them with any neckpiece or other form of jewellery. Whether you have a round face, oval cut, long face or highly sculpted cheekbones, there is a pair of chandbaalis for each face type.
– Lastly, the vertically stretched wedding earrings. While shopping for your bridal jewellery, do try out a pair of these. If they suit your face, then they are definitely worth a shot. They have a contemporary vibe to them that is absolutely synonymous with modern vibes. Look out for something heavily adorned with stones, kundans or diamonds. A few of them have small polkis hanging beneath them. Be mindful of the length of the earrings though. They should not be too long to the extent of touching your collar bones. A decent length looks flattering enough.
Wedding Earrings – Where Can You Go Wrong with the Choice?
– Be sure of the quality of the earrings you are buying. Check their rings beforehand. There should not be any last minute hassles.
– Comfort comes first before anything else. Ensure that the earrings are not heavy enough to have your entire ear drooping. You would not want something to weigh that heavy on you on your wedding day except the expectations of everyone around, close or remote.
– The earrings should enhance your look in a very seamless way and should merge well with everything. Do not buy something that is overpowering to the extent that it steals your limelight. The bride has to wear earrings, not the other way round.
– The embellishment or the stone work on the jewellery should align with the stonework on your wedding lehenga. They ought to complement each other. It can’t be that your lehenga has a modern, contemporary feel and you have paired it with typical traditional jewellery. You would not want to look totally mismatched and out of order.
– If your earrings have a chain that can be tied to your hair for support, then nothing like it. It is easier to carry such a pair and it quite eases off all the pressure being put on the ear.
Finally, get as creative and artistic with your whole wedding look. Wedding earrings are an important aspect of your bridal arsenal and no matter how exhausted or saturated with shopping, you cannot afford to take them lightly (pun intended!)
