7. South Indian necklace sets

Though this may seem too generic, especially with the sheer range of cultural complexities one finds in the Deccan, most brides favour the 'more is ideal' approach when it comes to their choice of wedding necklace sets. Be it the Coorgi brides, who opt for five distinct strands, starting from a humble Pathak or the extravagant Kerala wedding jewellery (seen above), that's a match you'd see across the region.

Styling Tips:

  • South Indian bridal jewellery is a style statement in itself. Wear it above a sharply pinned saree and a Maggam blouse.
  • Round necklines go with the flow of multiple wedding necklace sets.
  • Pair your jewellery with a matching Kamarband or bridal belt and distinct temple jewellery gold jhumkas.
  • Adorn it with a round neckline that follows the rhythm and flow of the multiple strands of this necklace.

8. European Filigree sets

Influenced by vintage European sensibilities, filigree wedding necklace sets are all about delicate details, holding in small, precious and semi-precious stones, with ornate hangings (like pearls). These sets still stand the test of time when you want your neck piece to enhance your look, but not become the focal point for it.

Styling Tips:

  • Wear with an Indo-western outfit or a fusion look. In fact, it looks best against a saree gown, gown or dress and a flowing hairstyle.
  • Most filigree sets turn out to be diamond necklace sets because the look is delicate and small.
  • Wear with a deep neckline or cover over with a bridal veil.
