Bridal Jewelry Trends 2024


B-town celebrities, from Deepika Padukone to Parineeti Chopra, have been stunning trendsetters for bridal fashion. The wedding trend for 2024 is highly celebrity-inspired, and these celebrities gave us some major bridal jewelry goals. Here are the top 5 handpicked bridal jewelry trends for the year:


1. Polki Jewelry


Athiya Shetty’s wedding look was among the most buzzed bridal fashion styles last year. From the subtle hues to the stunning one-piece polki choker, the actress went all in and broke the traditional heavy jewelry and red lehenga look. Polki jewelry represents timeless elegance and vintage charm that goes well with contemporary wedding looks. From emeralds to rubies, polki jewelry comes with color pops that instantly elevate even the most minimal look.

Not just Athiya but other popular ladies of the b-town like Parineeti Chopra and Nayanthara were also seen adorned in green kundan Polki jewelry. Polki jewelry is inspired by Indian art and culture. This has made it a staple of the recent wedding lookbooks to retrieve vintage vibes.

Bridal Jewelry - What to shop for?


Bridal jewelry has to be one of the most important parts of your bridal look, as it adds the right finishing touch to your final look. However, bridal jewelry shopping can be pretty overwhelming, especially with all the other wedding preps. With that said, choosing bridal jewelry as a bride can be difficult.


The first step is to map out what jewelry accessories you need to complete your bridal look. Then, check if it aligns with your wedding look. For instance, stones go well with pastel-coloured outfits, and pearls best suit darker hues.


Here’s a list of some basic accessories that every bride must have:


1. Bridal Earrings


Earrings are definitely the most important accessory that completes your final bridal jewelry collection. Investing in multiple earrings is a smart idea, as you can style them for your pre-wedding events as well! However, the bridal earring must be your first priority, and ensure it matches your style/wedding theme. 


For instance, if you’re having a royal wedding, heavy layered Jadau, semi-precious or Polki earrings, especially jhumkas would be the best match. You can take inspo from Anushka Sharma’s wedding look as she was adorned with bridal gold Jhumka designed intricately. 


On the other hand, if you’re opting for a contemporary and minimal wedding look like Asin Thottumkal, you can pick sparkling Polki studs or drops with intricate and fine detailing.

2. Bridal Necklaces


Bridal necklaces are equally important as earrings – ensure you do enough research before you pick the best. Most importantly, ensure that it is something that’s comfortable apart from going well with your final wedding look & complimenting other accessories.


You will find a wide range of bridal necklace options, from shimmering chokers to exquisite layered necklaces. You can also invest in multiple necklaces to stack them as you wish to create a classic and unique statement look. Take Esha Deol’s stunning red & golden wedding look for inspo!

3. Maang Tika

Most Indian bridal looks are incomplete without a maang tika. However, the least you must do is ensure that the maang tika compliments your bridal earrings and necklaces. 


If you’re opting for a minimal look, you can pick a mini maang tika with the same tone/stones as the other jewelry piece. Alternatively, suppose your bridal look is highly traditional. In that case, you can choose a harnessed maang tika with 3 or more chains extending to opposite ends – this also works as a stunning hair accessory.


However, you can also shop for a full bridal set if you do not want to mix and match styles. Victorian bridal sets are a suitable option (in terms of full Indian bridal sets) as they are made out of high-quality brass and have a shimmery antique finish. 


You can find our best-selling Victorian bridal sets made of serene, glistening American diamonds and shimmering polki stones – starting at just Rs.9,950. Check these and all other exclusive bridal jewelry collections at our website. Hurry now!
