by Akash Sharma Akash Sharma
Beautifully dressed people, traditional rituals, sparkling jewellery, great food and good music –is the recipe to a classic Indian wedding! Among numerous functions, Haldi and Mehendi ceremonies hold a special place in our hearts as they mark the onset of all wedding festivities. Often held in the day time, both these functions are perfect to flaunt a bright Indian outfit and compliment it perfectly with stunning jewellery designs. Here are some timeless jewellery ideas that you can flaunt on your Haldi or Mehendi ceremony:
     
Kundan Jewellery

Truly timeless in its appeal, you can never go wrong with this style of jewellery. Kundan jewellery is meticulously crafted using gem stones and glass jewellery that is set together using gold foil, a method believed to have originated in the royal courts of Gujarat and Rajasthan. It is widely popular for its flawless finishing and use of age-old crafting techniques. Even a simple maang tika paired with a heavy necklace will be ideal for a Mehendi function.

Polki Jewellery

While Kundan uses gemstones and glass, Polki is made with raw, uncut diamonds that haven’t undergone any processing. These Polki stones are painstakingly set using sheets of gold with a mould or bezel for the stone to be placed in. What makes this type of jewellery unique is its rustic appeal and rich history – often passed on as an heirloom. The regal shine and raw appeal of Polki makes it an easy pick for any wedding function, not to mention how effortlessly great it looks with any given outfit.         
 
Meenakari Jewellery

Add a dash of colour to your outfit with the vibrant grace of Meenakari jewellery. This artistic style of jewellery is brought to life through the art of enamelling - where jewellery moulds are crafted using coloured enamel. The designs often take inspiration from motifs of gods and goddesses or animals and plants, giving you a plethora of options to choose from. Meenakari is popular for functions such as Mehendi and Haldi as they add an exquisite burst of colour. For a heavier look, you can pair Meenakari necklace with matching diamond jhumka designs.

Jadau Jewellery

If you can’t make up your mind between Polki or Kundan designs, make the best of both worlds with Jadau jewellery. Traditional Jadau jewellery gets its name from ‘jad’, which means to be embedded. Craftsmen use different types of gems such as rubies, diamonds, emeralds and pearls and embed them with melted gold. In many cases, Polki stones are used as the centre piece to catch attention. You may also find Meenakari work on the reverse side of such a design. The unique combination of traditional Indian jewellery styles, blended perfectly into one single striking set gives Jadau jewellery a unique character that is hard to miss.  
                  
Gold Jewellery

Gold jewellery can never really goes out of style. Classic Indian favourite, traditional gold jewellery is a must-have in every Indian bride’s trousseau. If your outfit is light, pick a heavy set to stand out. Many brides today also go for heavy earrings and a maang tika with a relatively light necklace.
Haldi and Mehendi mark the beginning of a beautiful wedding celebration. Choose from a wide variety of options available at jewellery shops in Gurgaon and pick pieces that best compliment your outfit and sense of style.
