Today, the online jewellery shopping rate has gone through the roof. Our jewellery boxes are spilling with ornaments of every style and fashion. With premium pieces crafted with superior quality metal and certified semi-precious zirconias, designer costume jewelleryhave become not only our trusted accessories but affordable too.
But our resource-rich and time-poor generation is often stumped when it comes to pairing the pieces perfectly with their outfits. To buy jewellery for every single outfit only adds to the confusion. Also, jewellery overload only leads to more wastage that affects the delicate ecological balance of this planet. We are a 100% sustainable jewellery brand, and we thought the time is ripe to address this situation.
We have come up with a few basic outfit rules that can propel you to reuse your jewellery to create unique styles and looks every day. Keep these handy, and not only you will be saving your time but also the earth. In no time can you conquer your confusion and effortlessly dress up your OOTD with the right accessory.
Size of the jewellery
Balance is key when it comes to picking out the right size for your jewellery vis a vis your outfit. If you wear a bold pendant with large earrings, youwill look clunky and clumsy with all jewellery weight concentrated around your top half. On the other hand, if you pick something absolutely dainty and delicate, the look is lost if your elaborate outfit overshadows it. And not to mention, wearing oversized dazzling pieces all over with an equally shimmery evening party outfit is a fashion faux pas that must not be made.
Keep your jewellery lightweight for garments with loud patterns or busy prints. Simple solitaire ear studs are a great pick. Team them up with matching dainty pendant necklaces like these jewellery sets, and you are ready to seize the day! Alternately, you can use this same combo with your monochromatic business wear to add a subtle style while dressing professionally.
Select heavier pieces to lend a flair to simple shirt and trousers, or a non-embellished saree. That will punctuate the simplicity with an edge and create a dramatic effect.
Outfit and jewellery colour
Matching colours are out of fashion now, whereas, adding accents to an already colourful outfit is the way to go. Instead of wearing an all-yellow jewellery ensemble with your yellow dress, choose a pearl piece with a sheen of yellow in it. For garments with multiple hues, single out a colour and wear the same colour jewellery that complements it. This simple focus will build a neat and clean look. For a monotone outfit, choose soft pastel coloured gemstone jewellery that adds the right splash of colour without going overboard.

Know your skin tone
If you want to step up your jewellery style game, amp it up a notch by selecting pieces that elevate your skin tone. Since jewellery sits on your skin, it feels illuminated if you choose the right colour plated finish. Most of our jewellery sports three finishes, white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. While rose gold has a vintage appeal and rocks any skin tone, white gold goes well with skins that have a blue undertone, and yellow gold is perfect for skin with a yellow or golden undertone.

Neckline of outfit
Unlike the popular notion, we believe that the neckline of a dress not only decides the necklace but also other pieces of jewellery like earrings, too. Everything depends on the final look that you decide to achieve. For instance, a strapless neckline can be accentuated both by a choker necklace, or if you want a clean collarbone effect, a long teardrop statement earrings will help you achieve that. For v-shaped necklines, choose a pendant shape that matches the neckline's depth and angle. Or ditch the neckpiece, and just go with drop-style earrings and bracelets instead. For illusion necklines, any necklace will block the drama. A better choice will be to opt for dazzling danglers and bracelets. The failproof approach to high necklines will be to choose statement earrings. But you can actually wear a layered look with dainty pendants. Avoid any bulky piece as your top layer though because it will get hidden in the edge of the neckline.
