The festive season brings with it joy and a never-ending desire to splurge on clothing and accessories. Now before you venture out on impulse, weigh your options and choose what’s best for you and your pocket. PS: We hope you’ve already picked up these cool embroidered accessories.

Specialising in Afghan jewellery, this online store has some immaculately-made jewellery on display on their Facebook page. We like their use of junk metal, as well as how they combine it with splashes of colour. They sell through Facebook and the pieces sell out pretty quickly.

iTokri has a huge collection of statement jewelry pieces that possess the power of transforming you from a pajama-clad hippie to a goddess that can grab eyeballs at a pujo pandal or Diwali card party. Their toe rings start at INR 324, and silver jewellery at INR 800.

Remember the time we went to Colaba Causeway and lost it over cool junk jewellery? We loved the jewellery pieces made out of coins, the bride-worthy ornate necklace, the dream-catcher pendants and anklets. Starting at INR 50 and going up to INR 350, you can even use these once the festival season has finished.

If sass is your middle name ,and you like keeping your accessories game on point, Quirksmith could be your sanctum for all things cool. Do you fancy an ear cuff that defines a part of you? They have it. A septum ring that says ‘maal’, a brooch that channs your inner tantrum queen with ‘nakhrewali‘, or an ear cuff {INR 1,500 upwards} that says ‘Sab moh maaya hai’ – they make everything.
