Indian brides are famously talked about for their grandeur jewelry on the wedding day. These jewels are considered the most auspicious gift from the parents as they give away their daugther to the groom.
Bridal jewelry consultations are a common request at Raj Jewels and we love creating personalized looks for all our brides-to-be. The main aspect of the South Indian bride's wedding trousseau is her kanjeevaram saree and her traditional jewelry, followed by her make-up. While they keep their sarees simple, South Indian brides are lavishly adorned with gold ornaments. Just for all you brides-to-be, we present the top South Indian bridal jewelry looks, exclusively styled by our editor.
Look#1: Antique Gold Kasu Bride
We start with antique finish gold jewelry that is finished with a specific kind of polish to reduce the jarring intensity of yellow in the gold. This first look is a layered look, featuring a long kasu haaram in 22k antique gold, paired with a matching shorter designer necklace and carved jhumkas (butalu). The kasulaperu is a traditional piece of jewelry, featuring a embossed Goddess Lakshmi design over the coins. The ensemble also includes antique maang tikka, jadau antique kadas, and Triveni gold vanki (armlet) along with the traditional waist belt, popularly known as vaddanam, featuring Hindu Goddess Lakshmi. This completes the rich look of the timeless traditional South Indian bride.
Look#2: The Mango Mala Bride
The Mango Mala is a traditional South Indian necklace that is always on trend and is a popular choice for weddings. This lavish mango necklace in 22k antique finish gold is encrusted with pacchi and other precious stones, paired with a unique shape designer antique jhumka earrings and V-shaped vanki which is studded with uncut diamonds. The Managa Malai makes the bride look ethnic and ravishing on this significant occasion. A hair jewelry that is a hot favorite among South Indian brides is the Jada Billalu, one long piece of gold adornment which is placed along the length of the hair braid.
