Where's the fun in following all the rules word to word? Just like that, every ethnic jewel needs a little funk added to it. Quirky Store online is doing that. They sell kemp and oxidised silver jewellery by adding the b to the bold. They have rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. It is their earrings that are having us go gaga over them. You can find a whole collection ranging from geometric ones to studs and jhumkas.
The intricate bead artwork on big studded jhumkas is our first pick. There is one with saffron and red beaded eye that you can buy for INR 480. They have more colour combinations in this as well - like blue and violet and one with white and peach. Quirky Store has some pretty collections of jhumkas and studs using colourful mirror work mandala studs as well! They have these in oxidised silver as well as plated gold. If you want to look at more mirror works and colours, then they have a vast range of meenakari (Persian art) jhumkas.
Trust us when we say this, they can match up with any western outfit. You can have a peacock spread its feathers on your ears or an elephant curling up your earlobe. One of our favourite meenakari jhumka is a pastel-coloured one depicting a blooming flower; it has the body in pale blue and the petals to stick to your earlobe with a gradient of red and white. You can buy it in other colours as well at INR 2500.
Quirky Store has sparkly and heavy rings with handpainted ones being our fave. Big and bold, these rings have enamel brightly painted to on deities designs and then framed with pearl white beads. One look and you would totally want to add it to your bauble collection! You can get these for just INR 300.
