Jhumkis To Nose Rings, Here Are Our Favourite Brands For Some Heavy Indian Bling
Indian jewellery has the unique advantage of looking great on anything we wear and give us an effortlessly chic Indo-Western look. Be it silver jhumkis, or kundan and tribal inspired pieces with coins and nature based motifs, Indian jewellery can encapsulate Indian art into tiny yet significant fashion statements. Okay, we know that Commercial Street will always be the number one option for buying Indian jewellery, but in the event that you’re feeling adventurous, here’s our list.
A conceptual jewellery brand, Ammanya’s collection includes, silver, gold (plated), and silkscreen printed clay jewellery with a smattering of pearls.
