Let’s face it; we are all at a loss when it comes to picking the right jewellery for an evening of fun cocktails and dancing. You’ve picked out the perfect dress or sari for the evening, but you have no idea how to accessorise your look with jewellery. Some of us tend to opt for an easy way out of this dilemma with diamonds. Whether you’re prepping for a big fat Indian sangeet, your best friend’s birthday celebration, a business mixer or are just looking for an excuse to flaunt your latest designer number, we’ve put together a guide to urge you to skip the basic sparklers for jewellery pieces that feature brighter hues.
Want to catch eyeballs when you raise your glass of champagne for a toast? Replace the tennis bracelet that you wear for every occasion with a studded emerald cuff from Diacolor, or a subtle ruby bracelet by Jet Gems set with Gemfields Mozambican rubies. For a high-octane cocktail sangeet or a Diwali party, ditch your traditional diamonds for a livelier set of chandelier earrings like the Fabergé chandelier emerald earrings. And considering solitaire rings can often look very conventional, you can give them a miss by opting for a heritage emerald ring to create a signature style.
Choosing the right earrings can often be tricky affair. Skip your favourite diamond studs and go for a ruby encrusted pair of floral studs instead to add a pop of colour to your cocktail look. For a glamorous evening, amp your outfit up with a set of danglers in emeralds or rubies in geometrical shapes to accentuate your face structure. Love circular or oval-shaped earrings? The Federica Rettore emerald and gold danglers will make you stand out in the party crowd. And if you’re biased towards the tear-drop shape, you can accessorise with a pair of statement teardrop earrings by Rosentiques, set in a deep shape of emeralds—these go with both traditional as well as contemporary choices of clothing. Scroll onwards for our edit of the best gemstone jewellery that will up the sartorial game of your cocktail outfits.
