by Garima Gupta

When it comes to picking jewellery to complete our Indian wear outfits, classics like kundan, meenakari and navratna pieces come to mind. While they add magic to traditional ensembles, there’s plenty of room for experimentation that gives the look an instant makeover. Think stacking heritage jewellery for added drama, playing with long layers to amp up fusion looks or combining metal tones in unexpected ways.
For some tried-and-tested styling tips, we turned to celebrities who have proved that there’s no limit to getting creative with your treasured finds. From Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Kriti Sanon’s traditional hacks to Madhuri Dixit’s eclectic picks, these ideas will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone. Keep scrolling through for three easy-to-style ways of bringing out your prized possessions to wear more than just once.

While there are plenty of style lessons to take from Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s rulebook, jewellery is definitely a chapter you cannot miss. A true loyalist of classics, her jewellery collection pays homage to timeless Indian pieces that she plays up with unique accessories. Dialling up the drama with a simple white and gold zari sari, the star styled her statement kundan choker with similar pieces— matching oversized earrings, a cocktail ring and stacked kadas. What stood out in her vintage-inspired jewellery set was the row of romantic pearls that added a twist to the traditional lok.

When it comes to layering, there’s no such thing as much—as proved by Madhuri Dixit with her fusion palazzo-jacket set. With the heavily printed outfit, the actor picked multi-coloured jewels with delicate stones and beads.
Style tip: Plan your look from the top. Pick a string choker or versatile pendant, followed by multiple rows of beaded strings (that can adjust to any length), and finish with a long lariat in similar materials and tones. Alternatively, go for a ready-to-wear 5-string necklace, like the Outhouse piece from our edit below.
