The biggest drawback of silver is that it tarnished when exposed to air, water or basically anything. It is also the precious metals’ most endearing quality. The gleaming black dust that surrounds your oxidised silver jewellery is often alluded to as the moon’s craters, a combination that reflects beauty in imperfection.
It’s little wonder that Bollywood’s brightest stars are finding themselves drawn to the subtle glow of this style. Regaining popularity amongst industry insiders, oxidised silver jewellery is returning to the collective fashion conscience but in a more modern form. Contemporary, chunky styles are stealing the show and being paired with both Indian and western outfits.
From rings, earrings, necklaces to bracelets and headpieces, the style is embraced by women of all ages. With this style gaining popularity, we are turning to the oxidised silver collections from some of our favourite homegrown jewellery brands like Amana, Ritika Sachdeva, Sangeeta Boochra and more for layered necklaces, tribal-inspired ornaments and chunky rings. Enhanced with colourful enamel or mixed with different metals, beads, and shells, the contemporary styles are full of frolics.
