Jewellery for the Minimalist at Heart
When wandering into a jewellery shop, there are gorgeous jewellery pieces as far as the eye can see. From heavy chokers to necklaces lined with gemstones, gorgeous karhas (bangles) to massive rings. While a jewellery enthusiast might have felt their heart’s strings tugged at this sight – me, not so much.
I have always been a minimalist. Heavy jewellery has thus not inspired me much. Yet, after a look at the jewellery collection by C. Krishniah Chetty Jewellers, I found that there is hope for a minimalist like me too! Subtle and elegant jewellery graced my vision, and I knew my accessory collection was about to get an upgrade.
When I wear V-neck dresses or a plain top, my mother always stresses the need for a necklace. However, the minimalist in me runs away from the thought of something heavy and noticeable dangling from my neck.
Never did I think, there were necklaces even a person like me could wear, and I was fed up of wearing pendants of the same sort. Luckily for me, one look at the necklaces by C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers and I found the perfect necklace for me – a dainty classic diamond necklace with minimalist details in a gorgeous silver hue.
This necklace is proof that dainty necklaces are the way to a minimalist’s heart, and work well with eastern and western attires.
If you still don’t wish to opt for a necklace since a designed ornament hanging from your neck might feel like a lot – go for wearing chains instead. Many of us either stick to necklaces or pendants, and the glory of a delicate chain goes undiscovered. Although pendants give a touch of fashion to a neck piece, the chain itself shines through if worn the right way.
What is the right way, you ponder? Go for layering. Pair a simple chain with a slightly heavier one, and you shall be good to go. For example, this classic gold chain with 18Kt Yellow Gold appears subtle and elegant on its own. Thus, if you are wearing a white top with denim jeans – pair it with this gold necklace and suddenly your look shall have upgraded.
Yet, if you are dressing up for a party, a simple gold chain might be too subtle. Enhance your look with a blue, denim jacket and layer the chain with another classic gold chain with South Sea Pearls – and prepare to stun all.
Of course, being a minimalist, I run away from the hype of mighty drop earrings and usually resort to stick-ons or no earrings. However, one look at the gorgeous stud collection by C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers, and it seemed this is what my ears had been waiting for.
These classic diamond stud earrings became an immediate favourite for a day at work (or work-from-home, currently). Subtle, small, and elegant, these shall work with most attires including my casual shalwar kameezes as well as office power suits. Win-win? Surely!
These gold earrings with imitation pearls were another jewellery item that appealed to the minimalist within. Exhibiting a flowery pattern, they weren’t too shiny nor too funky or over-the-top – thus proving great for me!
While accessorizing the neck and ears is an important element when dressing up, I usually procrastinate enough to not leave enough time for donning jewels. This is where the versatile bangle comes in.
Everybody would expect a minimalist to don a plain platinum bracelet. While you can find that here at C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers, a way to dazzle and surprise your loved ones would be by wearing gorgeous odd bangles. A bangle doesn’t always refer to a heavy gold karha, or something laden with gemstones.
Go for simple ones like the solitaire diamond odd bangle made with 18Kt Yellow Gold which shall look minimalist yet great with cultural Indian clothing.
Or, if you are wearing a western dress or gown, the classic diamond odd bangle studded with an emerald in the center shall be your favourite accessory.
Often considered the look-completer, our hands seem bare without any rings. Even as we don a gorgeous bangle, something feels missing as we look in the mirror. That something is none other than glorious rings.
Or add depth to your fingers through the classic two-hued platinum ring.
Are you a minimalist at heart too, and can never find the right jewellery pieces? Head over to the C. Krishniah Chetty Jewellers, and prepare to be mesmerized by all that is on offer!
