Like most things in life, jewellery is also a matter of personal taste. Owing to which, there are a gazillion options to choose from! TBH, we're overwhelmed. Sometimes don't you just want a tasteful curated selection from one brand and one brand only, so that you don't have to skim through all that's out there? Let the founding ladies of Shaalin Jewellery help. This women-founded and led costume jewellery label is the latest on our radar, and we found them without having to scramble around, right here on LBB!
What has us opening our wallets is how refined and elegant the brand's approach to creating costume jewellery is. Usually, imitation jewels are loud and gimmicky, nothing you want to wear everyday. Shaalin Jewellery is just the opposite. To ensure great and long-lasting quality, Shaalin uses material like silver alloy or sterling silver (much stronger than most) and also gold plates each creation to avoid tarnishing and oxidation. This means any handcrafted piece will keep pretty much forever, and look as good as new after a polish (this too is needed only after years of use!).
In terms of style, you can be bold, delicate, playful, minimal, classic or trendy. You can be anything! We're gushing over the contemporary collection of Shaalin earrings on LBB. Our favourites - pearl detail minimalistic leaf studs, studded bucket earrings, and gold-plated jali studded earrings. If you want extravagance, shop for Shaalin's temple and heritage style elaborate necklaces that are micro-gold plated and pure brass based. Premium jhumkas and chaandbalis that are deceivingly lightweight is also this label's speciality.
