    Phone Covers

    Daily Objects

    Available on LBB

    Considering we spend the maximum amount of our time glued to our smartphones, it just makes sense to dress them up in something we love. Daily Objects lets you choose one of their designs and play around with it, or alternatively even upload your own {it can even be a photo of you}, choose the colour and order away. The good thing about them is they acknowledge phones other than just Apple.

    Available Online

    Create funky earrings using the Beadbox app on Funkanatomy. You can choose your own stones and beads and make the earring as long or as short as you want. They even let you choose a budget so you don’t go OTT {although that’s hardly possible with the upper limit being INR 250}.

    Garb & Bijoux

    For a more high-end piece of jewellery {silver gold-plated and semi-precious stones}, Pia Talwar has you covered.
