For every Pakistani bride, jewellery is an important component that can make or break her look. From gold heirloom pieces to statement polki, we give you a breakdown of what to add to your treasure box

Mehndi

There’s no better way to exude simplicity on your mehndi than with floral jewellery. The simpler you look on your mehndi, the more you can shine on your big day. Flower jewellery gives the bride a break from the heavy sets she will be sporting on her wedding and post-wedding events and also makes the right kind of simple statement. From a variety of flower arrangements that incorporate marigold and jasmine flowers, to pearl and bead adorned jewellery, there are a variety of ways to get creative with your jewellery. Opt for a simple tikka and team it with some pretty flower earrings for a colourful yet traditional look.

Baraat

There’s nothing we love more than a traditional bride. It’s the day a girl can bring out the family heirlooms and team it with a few contemporary pieces. This wedding season, we’re taking inspiration from across the border and layering up our necklaces over our clothes. Layer them up and add a choker for that grand look. Pair up the polki with an heirloom piece and if you’re feeling bold enough, opt for a nath and jhoomer. (We’ve already seen a lot of brides sporting the nath already!)

Valima

The valima is always the chance for a bride to bring out the sparkly diamonds. Being the more understated of all the wedding events, you can switch up the gold with precious stones; think diamonds, pearls, rubies or emeralds. Brides on a budget can also shine bright on their big day and opt for zircon sets which shine just as bright. The perfect valima bride always keeps it classy and contemporary.

Trousseau Essentials

Every new bride will continue to wear jewellery post marriage. This is why you should add more practical and versatile jewellery to your trousseau. This can be a combination of cocktail rings, simple earrings and other elegant pieces. Costume jewellery is now available in abundance and is easy on the pocket. There’s nothing we love more than a statement-making cocktail ring or some fabulous costume jewellery to enhance your look.
