Do you remember the jewelry worn by Alia Bhatt in 2 States during her wedding scene? What about the ones worn by Heema Malini for her daughter’s wedding? They are one of the oldest classic jewelry named as Temple Jewelry.
In our country our jewelry is always related to our culture and tradition unlike west. With diversified culture we have diversity in jewelry too. If you travel from north to south you will find a wide variety of jewelry patterns and an age old story behind the tradition of wearing such jewelry. When you go towards south you will hear about temple jewelry. Temple jewelry is initially used by traditional classical dancers of south India. They usually have beautiful carvings of gods and goddess. These are very old and traditional jewelry designs, a result of days and months of finest hard work of skilled craftsmen,
Lately temple jewelry is high on trend and have turned into one of the favorite bridal jewelry choice. An exquisitely carved piece of temple jewelry completes the bridal look. The beautiful temple jewelry designs are usually carved on gold and gem stones like uncut diamonds, ruby, emerald, etc
These are few of my personal favorites and few simple pieces were part of my bridal jewelry too. I have been eyeing the ones with large single pendant from so long 😀
