If it is your wedding, then you are not only allowed to but expected to be a shimmering queen. The bridal jewellery and bridal dress outshine the sun and stand out. Bridal jewellery is a personal choice and it can be what you want it to be. Various jewellery can be worn depending on which region or community you belong to. Let us look at some jewellery tips that might be helpful.
- Choker necklace – Choker necklace can be a sleek and slim one or a broad one that can go from your neck to the neckline of your dress. The bigger and more flashy ones look regal and eye-catching. However, the scope to reuse these after your wedding is very low. They might not be the appropriate jewellery to wear at someone else’s wedding.
- Temple jewellery – This type of jewellery refers to the specific craftsmanship of the jewellery, which includes gods and goddesses in various forms.

This can be used later for occasions and festivals.
- Kundan jewellery – This type of jewellery includes the purest form of gold with precious or semi-precious gemstones. This type of jewellery is extremely famous due to its shiny appeal. The designs and this form of jewellery have been around for centuries. The craftsmanship for this type of jewellery is best appreciated on bigger pieces like chandelier earrings and necklaces.
- Layered – A lot of communities believe in wearing a copious amount of gold on the wedding day. One of the best ways to achieve this and maintain the functionality of the jewellery pieces is by layering the jewellery carefully.

This way each necklace can be worn separately as a daily use gold necklace
