Sayani posted on 16 July

Jhumkas never go out of style, and we found different kinds of them in every stall--simple to tiered ones. Gamchha clothing is all around us, and we picked up some chic looking earrings to team it with. For a pretty day look, pick the light threadwoven jewellery. What we loved best, however, were the vintage looking Rajasthani earrings that came detailed with colourful miniature figurines. Prices of the earrings start at INR 70.

Neck Pieces

The Gariahat stalls have a stunning variety of neck pieces. We found simple, chunky and even stone-inlayed chokers to team with Indian and western wear. Dig statement jewellery and looking for some affordable options, pick up Buddha and Ganesha heads, cloth and conch pieces, and South Indian temple-style jewellery. Also look out for quirky painted and lacquered wooden necklaces with tribal motifs. Prices of the necklaces start at INR 120.

Hand adornments were mostly available in metal, but we also found some gamcha-bound ones. You'll spot ornate armlets too in a few stalls here. Stone studed or topped with animal heads the bangles and cuffs here start at INR 120.
