Want to make a quick impression? Just change your accessory.Bold, Chunky,stand-alone pieces of jewellery help you make the right impression for the right occasion. Surekha Kadapa-Bose
Big, bold, chic and stylish is the new mantra in jewellery adornment. The trend, which started in 2008, is now reaching the zenith of popularity. Every woman, who wants to create an impression, goes with what is being termed ‘statement jewellery’.
Women, who want to make a statement and be noticed, take a path divergent from the conservative and traditional routes. They start it off with one large chunky piece of ornament.
“Gone are days when women decked themselves up in layers of jewellery – mangalsutra, necklace, bangles, earrings and finger rings. An upwardly mobile woman doesn’t have the time for so much jewellery, nor does she want to look like a decked up bride at all times of the day. So, she prefers to have one prominent piece. That is all,’’ explains Suhani Pittie, a jewellery designer from Hyderabad.
The best part about statement jewellery is that it can be worn on a khadi-silk-chiffon or any type of sari, jeans-T-shirts, formal trousers-shirts, beachwear and evening gowns or even on office-wear! These pieces range from the wild to the wonderful, creatively crafted to the exquisite, and to downright crazy chunks. In fact, statement jewellery is one of the easiest way to change the entire look. There is no need to change the entire wardrobe. Just flaunt the right cuff, bangle, armband, large pendant, long danglers, flashy earrings, gigantic finger ring, a very showy hairclip, a nose ring … the list is unending. But remember to keep the attire simple if you want your accessory to be the focal point.
