Romantic Opulence ft. The Mauve Unit + GIVEAWAY!

More often than not, you will find me delving into the mystique and allure behind dramatic jewelry that almost transports me to my own conceptual wonderland. Call it a backlash to normcore, but I am embracing my eerie, hooded fantasies. Dark romance with some opulent jewelry meticulously combined with smudged kohl is the kind of proposition I cannot deny.

 I relish abundance in accessories- and that seemingly does not mean quantity alone. I’m talking attention to detail, design and the aesthetic sensibility behind each piece. Needless to say, a different genre of jewelry is slowly transcending into the urban consciousness. The new-age jewelry is evidently contemporary, sumptuous and whimsical overdosing on high-octane glamour. Of course, it will take a certain fierceness of the soul to match; but no one is complaining.

   I had quite the crush on this little store tucked away on 9th main road in Indiranagar, ever since I first passed by it. Upon my entrance to the store I was torn between the decor and the opulent jewelry gleaming at me and I turned into a starry-eyed little kid just gazing at the rows and rows of sheer brilliance.

 Headed by Neha who is the jewelry designer, her design aesthetic is feminine and contemporary. The brand boasts of a wide array of statement pieces that are delicate and feminine.

They have three different kinds of jewellery catering to different occasions and moods

   Ethnic : There’s something for everyone- ranging from smaller rings and earrings to heavy bridal jewellery

Victorian : Classic and exclusive statement pieces that never go out of style

Contemporary : Perfect for the modern woman, and can be worn everywhere right from work to special occasions and parties.

The theme in my mind was pretty simple- beautiful gold plated jewelry against wispy layers of black chiffon. It’s quite an ethereal combination. And you know what I say, if anything makes you feel like queen Cleopatra and/ or Queen Beyoncé, get your hands on it and never let it go!

For the ones who are willing to treat themselves to some exquisite jewelry, they are located off 100 ft road, Indiranagar.

Timeless Elegance ft. Studio V7

I am an absolute traditionalist when it comes to jewelry. I always subconsciously pick out pieces that are timeless and follow no trend. I can definitely make do without palm bracelets and body harnesses, no thank you.

Earrings are on the top of my radar everytime I am out shopping or ‘in’ shopping (online shopping is a thingg,hello). When i’m styling an outfit I tend to work my way around statement earrings. And i was  stumped when a box full of earrings (and a finger ring) from Studio V7 said ‘hello!’ at my doorstep a few weeks ago. Absolute paradise.

And now we get back to working my way around statement earrings, these oversized studs from Studio V7 screamed traditionalism with contemporary elan. That is precisely why I picked a classic LBD with a thigh high slit, wrap detail and a plunging neckline. Special thanks to the lace bustier for saving me from looking like a Kardashian/Jenner.

Also notice the beautiful natural stone finger ring which is so modern, making it compatible for both ethnic and boho wear.

For my second look, I off-shouldered (is that even a word though?) the same black dress by pulling it off my shoulders and let the earrings do the taking. When there is a diamond stud AND tassels together, it’s a win-win for me.
