Dipti Choker Set: The Polki Box | Emerald lehenga set: Behind The Seams India | Sneakers: Aldo
3 years ago, I chose a life where I could submit to creative urges as I please. With that came a set of challenges that I had no experience handling, but also no complaints. Having to keep up with trends, particularly in jewelry and accessories, hardly feels like work. That is how I found The Polki Box on Instagram - now my go-to place for wedding guest/ bridesmaid jewelry. She has an array of investment pieces that can transform any look, and here’s why I thought the Dipti Choker set checked all of my jewelry requirement boxes:
• Easy to work with both gold and silver accents, which is a constant struggle for fusion/ Indowestern looks
• The choker and earrings, each on their own, can be the only piece of jewelry I wear
• The earrings can be worn in multiple ways (pearl chain over your ear, adorning a bun etc.,) each creating a different look! A single earring also looked divine as a headpiece, especially since jhumka-ish maang tikkas are trending right now!
• I can work the piece(s) into my Indian and Western outfits both (you knew this)
• They’re intricate and durable, but also very lightweight ergo convenient to dance in
This monochrome lehenga set is over a year old, I got it made for my brother's engagement. Clearly not much has changed in terms of my color preferences, I'm still obsessed with emerald green! To say that I’ve been longing to wear this would be an understatement! I got it made from Behind The Seams (Tanvi, one of the two designers, is my friend’s sister), and I insist that you check them out for some lovely contemporary Indian pieces.
Since you made it till the end of this post - what do you struggle with during jewelry shopping? Help me help you! ;)
