As we said, your saree look is not complete if you have not paired it with beautiful saree accessories. Of course, no one saree is similar and they all deserve to be styled differently. The styling also depends on the type of look you are going for. For example- if you are wearing a silk saree for your wedding, gold jewellery with temple designs is the way to go. Similarly, you are wearing a saree for your Reception or Cocktail, diamond jewellery looks the best. It is totally up to you how to spruce up your look. You can go very heavy on your saree accessories or keep it simple and classy.
Here are some of the saree accessories we love and think suit a lot of different saree looks. Check them out!
1. Poola Jada

Have you ever wondered what the beautiful accessories you see in a South Indian bride’s hair are? They are known as Jadas. These floral Jadas you see in the picture are called Poola Jada. They can even be artificial flower Jadas used to decorate a braid. You can use them in a simple Haldi ceremony or your wedding. They add colour and happy vibes to your look.
2. Organic flower jewellery
Saree accessories are very important to have a complete look. But not every occasion is fit for going all out with real jewellery. You can take the alternative route of using flower jewellery instead. They are available in designs that can be worn from head to toe like a Maang Tikkas and payals. These saree accessories are perfect for a fun Mehndi and Haldi ceremony.
3. Traditional gold jewellery

If you are wearing a traditional silk saree to your wedding, then you have to style it with gold jewellery. They are the best saree accessories to complete your ethnic look. You cannot go wrong with picking temple jewellery designs and keeping it elegant when you are wearing a beautiful silk saree. Bring out your best gold jewellery game if you are going for a traditional look!
4. Hair accessories
While jewellery pieces are very important saree accessories, hair accessories are quite as important. You cannot go out in your saree without the proper hairstyle and hair decorations. The first option we have for you is a Matha Patti to cover your forehead and make it look beautiful. You can even add Jada pieces on the top of your head, just like in the picture, and cover your braid with them as well.
The second option is a simple one but well known. Simply cover your bun with flowers of your choice! They can match your outfit or you can go for simple white ones.
5. Jadau jewellery
While authentic gold jewellery looks beautiful, it does not go with every saree of yours. If you are going for a contemporary saree look, it is best to pair the ensemble up with Jadau jewellery pieces. You can also choose diamond jewellery instead of Jadau. But steer clear of gold jewellery if you want to look modern!
6. Stack up the bangles!
