A favourite bit about winter shaadis is the pleasant atmosphere where you don’t have to look out for your behen to retouch your bridal makeup every now and then. But it also means that you’ll be facing the windy chill throughout the affair. So, just as much choosing the right bridal dress is important, a bride’s wedding jewellery is also crucial. This shaadi season not only allows you to experiment with deep dark colours and fabrics like velvet or silk but also allows you to go heavy with the jewellery of your choice without having to worry about shivering or sacrificing your fashion trousseau. Therefore, choosing the right kind of wedding jewellery to complement the look is also significant. In simpler terms, it’s as much necessary as choosing that appropriate hairdo or that mehendi design.
The Channel 46 got hold of Tribe Amrapali’s latest wedding jewellery collection and not only did they share their jewellery recommendations for the bride but also the entire family!
Tribe Amrapali & TC46 Brings You Extraordinary Jewellery Essentials For Your Winter Wedding
Still wondering what jewellery to pick for your winter shaadi? Here’s a guide for you to make the entire process a piece of cake!
For The Bride
1. The Royal Choker
This style of the necklace has gained immense universality in recent times. After slaying the regular wear and party looks, choker styles have also reached the Indian bride’s trousseau with many desi brides choosing to go for a choker necklace on their wedding day. It gives a sense of royalty to the whole look of the wedding lehenga making it so well acclaimed.
Get your hands on this traditional Silver Adhira Necklace from Tribe Amrapali for that ultra regal look on your wedding. This colourful necklace is handcrafted in silver with gold plating, studded with glass and adorned with elegant pearl droplets.
2. The Elite Earrings
You’ve found your winter wedding lehenga and now it’s time to think about those little details to complete your ultimate bridal look. Your choice in bridal earrings and other wedding accessories will set the tone of your look. You can instantly transform a heavy-embroidered velvet or a minimalist wedding dress into serious #weddinggoals with the addition of statement elite earrings.
Grab the brand’s Silver Adhira Earrings for the bride from their newest collection. These colourful earrings are handcrafted in silver with gold plating, studded with glass and adorned similarly with pearl droplets.
3. The Embellished Ring
Apart from providing sentimental value to the bride herself, a finger ring can mean a lot for the entire family. No bride’s fingers lay bare at her wedding. Indian wedding ring traditions are rich in variants and a bride may wear her engagement ring among other rings from her wedding jewellery set. The bridal designs range from simple bands to intrinsic designs with or without coloured gemstones, diamonds or coloured stones.
Add to cart this beautiful adjustable round-shaped embellished Zia Ring with floral and lotus motifs carefully handcrafted by Tribe Amrapali. It is gold-plated in silver studded with pink and white glass and lined intricately with pearls.
4. The Ideal Nose Ring
A nose ring is symbolic of marriage, especially in Hindu weddings. However, since nose rings are not comfortable for everyone, a lot of brides opt out of wearing one on their shaadi. Indian wedding nose rings may be elaborate with chains connecting to the earrings or they may be just studs that adorn the nose without looking completely overdone. Again, if piercing the nose is not an option for you, you can easily choose clip-on varieties to complete the look with other bridal jewellery pieces.
Get your hands on this beautiful Silver Yamini Nose Ring from the brand. This colourful nose ring is handcrafted in silver with gold-plating studded with glass and adorned with pearl droplets. Try this out for your winter shaadi and exude as much elegance as you can!
5. The Elegant Payal
Payals have been worn in India for centuries now and are considered to be one of the most important adornments in the culture. However, they are back in trend being a new style statement! With so many payal designs out in the fashion market, brides are nowadays literally spoilt for choice.

6. The Majestic Maang Tikka
This small piece of jewellery that adorns the forehead is one that adds to the beauty, sophistication and royalty of the bridal attire. Modern brides all over India wear Maang Tikkas nowadays as the Indian wedding jewellery traditions have changed. They match it with other pieces like necklaces and earrings to complete the look. It is believed that the spot where the Maang Tikka rests is symbolic of the union of the bride and groom on a spiritual, emotional and physical level.

For The Bridesmaids

The rule of the thumb, while you are out to choose bridal jewellery, is not just to consider each piece in isolation but to take into account the whole look when you wear all the individual pieces together. Choose jewellery that has some consistency in terms of style and design. This way, when you wear them all together, they will complement each other and tell a beautiful story that will make it impossible for anyone to take their eyes off you.
