Hi beautiful ladies! I know its quite difficult to cheese the perfect jewelry for a saree. The fact is that most of us don’t wear saree everyday. It just became an occasional wear. Once in a blue moon we want to wear saree but the problem is we don’t know how to choose jewelry for saree. As a Indian woman I love to wear saree. So from my experience of wearing saree from my teenage I learned a few important things on selecting jewelry for saree. Today I am sharing those tips to you guys. I hope it would inspire you to choose perfect jewelry for your saree.
Tip No.1 Border of the saree
To select the perfect jewelry you have to find the color of the border of your saree. Most of the sarees comes in Golden, Beige and Silver border.
For Golden and Beige border saree wear Gold or Gold plated jewelry.
For Silver border saree go for Diamond, White stone, Oxidised Silver jewelry.
But what if the saree border is in some other color? No worries! You can choose a jewelry in the color of the saree border.
Tip No.2 Based on the type of the saree
For Fancy saree wear fancy jewelry. Wait what is a fancy jewelry? If the jewelry is not precious then its called a fancy jewelry. It will be made with kundans, stones,silk thread, beads etc.
For Silk sarees you can wear precious and semi-precious jewelry
For Cotton saree Oxidised Silver jewelry will be a good choice. For inspiration you can take actress Nayanthara photo shown below. She is wearing simple yet beautiful cotton saree and added for Oxidised Silver jewelry for completeing the look.
For heavy work saree try to wear subtle jewelry or only one jewelry. If you want to wear a big earring skip necklace. The point is it must not look chunky.
If you are wearing a simple saree then choose a Statement jewelry to give a twist to your look
For nude colour sarees you vcan wear classic colour jewelry
Tip No.3 Based on saree draping style
If you are wearing the saree in free pallu style then long chain with pendent will look good. If you are wearing pleated pallu then opt for short necklace.
Tip No.4 Size of the Jewelry
For a simple saree a big statement earring or necklace will be perfect
If the earring is big chain or necklace can be avoided
Make sure the jewelry is not looking chunky. You can wear a necklace and a earring in medium size or only a big statement earring.
Tip No.5 Based on skin undertone
We all have a undertone in our skin. Most of the Indians have warm under tone a few have cool undertone.
For warm undertone people golden color jewelry will look good and for cool undertone people silver, diamond and white stone jewelry will look good.
So if you just want to wear a jewelry that looks good on you then you can check your under tone and choose the appropriate one.
For warm undertone people silver jewelry will make them look sick and for cool undertone people golden jewelry will not look significant. It will make them look like they are not wearing jewelry at all.
Don’ts of choosing jewelry for saree
- Full chunky jewelry from top to bottom with heavy saree is a big no
- Simple saree with subtle jewelry will look boring
- Hand should not be left empty. Bare hands doesn’t look good in saree.
- Big anklet with too much of noise is not so classy. You can wear a simple anklet.
- Big statement bracelet and big rings are a big no.
- Mixing silver and golden jewelry must be avoided. All the jewelry must be made of same metal. Mixing them is not so good idea.
