I love Indian International Jewelry Week. LOVE. Too many pretty jewels, too little time.
And I am especially excited to see how brides can show these 2018 trends. Traditional, funky, over the top, there is serious innovation in Indian jewelry styles this year. Here are our thirteen trends for 2018.
Having a crush on those phenomenal sets and not having a hand on that, explains that you are a bride who prefers running on a budget and not overspending on jewellery. Sadibyah gives you breathtaking artificial jewellery ideas for brides to be without a hole in your pocket.
1. Traditional Jewellery for Wedding
Bridal jewellery is that component of a bride’s look that enhances not only her attire but also her beauty and takes it to another level. Bridal jewellery can be made out of various metals or stones such as gold, silver, diamonds, Kundan, ruby/emerald studded pieces, etc. But, the traditional Indian wedding jewelry is mostly made out of gold. However, because of the difference in tastes and choices, people nowadays make all kinds of alterations while choosing the metal.
2. Ethical Engagement Rings
When it comes to choosing the perfect engagement ring, there are both human rights and environmental concerns to be considered. The harvesting of diamonds has a history of fueling conflict and the mining of precious metals is often damaging to the environment. Beyond this, miners are frequently denied fair wages and adequate health and safety provisions.
For the socially conscious bride-to-be, an ethically-sourced engagement ring is a must and thankfully there are a range of stunning and affordable options. These 16 jewelry companies source recycled or fair trade gold, and vintage and conflict-free diamonds and jewels to create their engagement rings. Many of these brands are also green-certified and give back to their communities or the environment in a number of ways.
3. Antique Temple Jewelry
Ask any die hard South Indian as to what the hottest jewelry trend in India is and most of them will say temple jewelry with an antique finish. Temple jewelry is chunky and primarily made of gold, with precious stones in red and green. Many of them feature large motifs of goddesses and tend to be intricate pieces, taking days of labor. They look regal when paired with a Kanjeevaram saree and why for their roots can be traced back to the royal Chola kingdom.
4. Diamonds Are Still the Bride’s Best Friends
This is one jewelry trend in India that has been going strong since years – that of wearing diamonds for the wedding. Brides today choose to wear diamond necklaces and earrings for their reception when the play of light is dazzling against the stones. If you want to go in for diamond jewelry, choose delicate designs that you can even wear to others’ weddings rather than very ornate ones that you would have to store in the locker after your wedding.
5. Double Stranded Thick Necklaces
The Nizams of Hyderabad were famous for their double stranded pearls and it looks like as if this 2018 Indian jewellery trend is here to stay. One thing’s for sure- when you’re wearing one of these, you don’t have to worry about whether anybody has noticed your expensive set. But you would need to tone down the amount of jewellery you wear overall or else the effect would be nothing less than gaudy. Focus on getting the perfect signature piece if you love chains.
6. Large Ring
We know that the western world has had some influence on our Indian looks, and one of the recent trends are the large rings adorning many a maharani bride. This versatile piece can be used with your traditional Indian jewellery as well as setting off your western look to perfection.
7. Cocktail Rings
Sure, cocktail rings have been around since 2014 and can be spotted on girls at parties and one can wear a really eye catching one especially if the rest of the jewellery worn remains muted. One of the reasons why Indian brides love cocktail rings could be because they add glamour in a subtle way and when worn on a delicately manicured hand, the result is more than eye-catching. The more intricate the design, the more memorable the ring.
8. Maharani Style-Multi Layered Necklace
Inspired by the ancient jewelry this multi layered Maharani necklace has been made. Be trendy! Get the royal look on your dreamed day. A perfect combination of fashion and tradition. This beaded and antique set serves a patterned style. Jewelry is an indispensable part of bridal wear and this would give you an immense feeling of being special on your most special day.

Just a pair of big chand balis is enough to make you glitter in your reception or engagement. It goes well with every traditional Indian attire be it sarees, lehengas or salwar suits.
