Everything is bright, loud and glamorous at a big, fat Punjabi wedding. Truly Bridal’s Nikita Mehra, in association with Be For Beauty helps you decode these jewellery trends.
- Go big or go home, is how the Punjabis put it. Opt for a Kundan or a polka chokker along with big earrings or Jhumkas. Match the stones with the colours of your outfit. As Nikita, the expert at Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers says; don’t forget to wear a Nath (nose ring chain) and a Maang Tikka (hair chain) which is traditionally gifted by the bride’s uncle.
- A bride’s hands should never be empty. The Choora ceremony is usually a day before the wedding. Once that is done, you can wear a few chooris (thin bangles) to add some colour. On the day of the wedding, pair them with Kundan/ruby/gold bangles.

3. A Sikh wedding, or Ananth Kaaraj, is usually held in the day in a Gurudwara—and the bride mostly wears an Anarkali suit. Invest in a wholesome set plush with a raani haar (a medium long necklace that reaches your chest line), drop earrings and Maang Tikka (hair chain). Be sure your makeup is natural and not too caked since this is a day function.
4. Remember; first buy the jewellery and then the wedding ensemble. This way you’ll know the colours of your neckpiece and earrings and can shop sensibly!
