Indians always stand out in a crowd for many reason one being its outstanding jewellery. Indians feel incomplete without jewellery. Jewellery is the most beautiful attire in a bride or any Indian woman. Earrings are my favourite and from the variety of them I would chose the” jhumkas”. The endearing quality about jhumka is that they are very versatile. You may buy just a pair or two of jhumka earrings but the chances are that you will be able to pair them with several dresses, hence giving you a reason to feel beautiful every day. The Jhumkas are an absolute must have in every girls jewellery set. A variation of these earrings includes the French hook design. This design comes without closures or hooks. These earrings are available in different lengths, sizes and materials, making them suitable for day and night use.

 



Traditionally, these earrings are made from a wide variety of materials such as gold, silver, platinum and other metals. The gold and silver earrings are the most popular however, since they lend a regal look to any outfit. In addition, these chandelier earrings often come inlaid with precious and semi-precious stones, such as pearls, aquamarine, black onyx, briolette, diamond, peridot, quartz, amethyst, tourmaline and other. Earrings with Meenakari work are also extremely popular. Meenakari refers to the art of enameling on any metal surface.

Jhumkas can be pared not just with your Indian outfit but also with your western and casual wear because of its various design, shapes and colour which gives you the touch of elegance. Jhumkas has also led to a universal demand for these pieces of traditional jewelry. What works in favor of these earrings are the effortless elegance, glamour and style they offer to any outfit, while still retaining a traditional and ethnic look.

From traditional South Indian weddings, to Red Carpet Events in Hollywood, the Indian chandelier earrings versatility lends itself to all occasions and events. Its range, design and style make this the perfect pick-me-up accessory for all outfits. How many Jhumkas do you own? How do you pair them and wear? If anyone reading does not have Jhumkas its time you get them and flaunt them your style .
