The festive season is officially on, and our wardrobes are teeming with the best of saris, lehengas, statement blouses in the most decadent versions and striking hues. However, what are festivities without the right kind of bling? If there is one piece of jewellery that’s raging hot this festive season, it is definitely statement earrings. Bold neckpieces and over-the-top maang tikkas have taken a backseat this time and earrings in different forms, materials, and motifs are coming together to create some interesting festive looks. We picked out the best celeb-inspired statement earrings for this festive season.
Bollywood’s obsession with statement earrings is quite evident. Deepika Padukone’s turquoise and gold shoulder-grazing earrings that she paired with a canary yellow Sabyasachi number for an event at Soho House, Mumbai earlier this year is a strong referential point for the changing trend of earrings in India. We also credit Sonam Kapoor for experimenting with a wide variety of earrings; from the traditional chunky silver ones to statement Misho hoops to even studs by Chopard, her bracket of inclusion omits nothing. Following the lead is stylist par excellence Rhea Kapoor who can not hide her appreciation for everything traditional. Her love for Indian earrings, especially in silver is a constant one.
Given the rich cultural canvas of India, Hyderabad’s Nizami jewellery is timeless fashion and Anushka Sharma agrees; one look at her exquisite pair of earrings will cement the fact. Another significant insignia of the decadent Nizami jewellery is the traditional chandbaali, and the same has been making rounds among Bollywood’s fashion fixtures for some time now. Recently Priyanka Chopra, while promoting her new movie ‘Sky is Pink’, donned a head-to-toe traditional look; the polka dot Sabyasachi saree paired with traditional chandbaalis. Intricately carved temple jewellery has also been embraced time and again by the likes of Aditi Rao Hyadri and Kangana Ranaut.
