Bored of wearing the clichéd gold, 'kundan', 'polki' and diamond jewellery? Want to look gorgeous yet unique? For all such fashionable brides to-be who dare to be different, here is a round up of all the trending 'haldi-mehendi' jewellery ideas that will not only make you
look a million bucks but also set you apart from the crowd.

Tassel on

This is a style that speaks of the contemporary modern bride. This newest bridal jewellery trend works not only for the bohemian bride but also brides with classic aesthetics.

Mostly made out of threads, cloth, beads, tassel jewellery has also been spotted in pearls and semi-precious stones as well. They prove to be super comfy and are versatile enough to wear to at a 'haldi', 'mehendi', 'sangeet', cocktail or even your reception. You can opt for a tassel 'mathapatti' paired with earrings and bangles matching with your outfit or in contrasting colour. The latest trend is that of ombre dyed tassel 'kaleeras' made from fabric matching your outfit.

Pompom jewellery

Pompoms are everywhere this season. They are bright, colourful and add a quirky twist to your outfit. From the much loved pompom earrings to 'haathphools', 'maang tikas', 'kadas', neckpieces, pompom jewellery is the go-to choice for brides looking to add a fun playful element to their 'mehendi' look.

Floral patterns

Indian weddings have an age-old tradition of using flowers to decorate the wedding venue. But these days, the usage of flowers in a wedding is not limited to just the venue décor.  Floral jewellery has been trending since the last couple of seasons. Delicate floral jewellery not only adds an elegant feminine touch to your look but also complements the 'mehendi 'designs very well.

Replace the traditional jewellery with exotic
orchid 'maang tikas', marigold and 'rajnigandha haath phools', 'kamarbandhs' made of roses, and 'mogra' and pearls. Floral jewellery is easiest to customise. With hundreds of beautiful designs, flowers and colours to chose from, floral jewellery can be personalized to match your outfit and style.

Floral jewellery is not limited to only fresh flowers anymore. A wide variety of floral jewellery, ranging from artificial to satin flowers have made its way to the market. There is plenty to chose from.

Gota jewellery

Gota is a kind of metallic looking ribbon and lace, typically found in shades of golden, silver and copper. The ribbon is sewn in a way to create pieces of jewellery.

It adds shine to your outfit without having to wear the traditional gold or silver jewellery. These sparkly pieces of jewellery are light-weighted, more reasonable than flowers and can be worn again.

Gota looks festive, and this jewellery also lasts longer as compared to floral pieces and hence can be stored as keepsake. For those brides who are afraid of all that shine, the latest trend is gota work on velvet, accented with pearls to inject a classy touch.

Jewelled mehendi

What better than 'mehendi' that imitates jewellery? The brides who wish to look a million bucks
without being weighed down by heavy pieces can opt for 'mehendi' designs replicating jewellery.
Instead of conventional 'mehendi' patterns, choose designs that mean something to you from that of a special family heirloom or a neckpiece passed over generations or your grandmother's regal armlet. For the contemporary bride, who wants to steer clear of any traditional motifs, let 'mehendi' designs adorn you.

Threadwork designs

Beautiful bangles with silk threadwork is an interesting option for brides who like fuss-free minimal jewellery.

Jewellery with intricate threadwork is delicate and pretty with a wide array of colour options available to go with your outfit.

If you're looking for a pop of colour on the jewellery without looking gaudy, then threadwork jewellery is a good option.

Mirrorwork calling

While mirrorwork is often spotted on the lehenga, the trend has made a way into pre-wedding jewellery.

These shiny pieces can make quite a statement with edgy designs in the form of rings, 'mangtikkas', armlets and chokers. The  traditional mirrorwork jewellery found on oxidized silver has been updated for the modern bride with gota work, pompoms and 'nakkashi' work around to make it trendy.
