White pearl necklace with earrings gives a ravishing look when paired with a white outfit. Moreover, you can also pair them for other days with orange, yellow, blue and pink outfits.
* Statement jewellery: Although oxidized jewellery is the preferred and most common option during Navratri but it’s important to also wear comfortable jewellery as you dance the night away. Therefore statement neckpieces and earrings are a lighter option which will help you stand out.
* Uncut polki with meenakari jewellery: It’s essential to have a balance between being trendy and traditional whereas jewellery crafted using traditional motifs such as peacock, lotus or any other in gold finish options are perfect for an ethnic and contemporary attire. Polki Jewellery can also be paired with coloured stones like pink sapphire, rubies as red and emerald as green which symbolize the nine avatars of goodess Durga with their colour traits.
