The Navaratri Color Palette: Adorning Yourself in Harmony
Navaratri, a vibrant nine-night Hindu festival, is celebrated with enthusiasm. One of the most delightful aspects of this festival is the use of a specific colour for each day, symbolizing the different forms of the goddess Durga. In this blog, we will explore the traditional colours associated with each day of Navaratri through the colour palette of gemstones and suggest stunning jewellery options to match your outfits. Additionally, we will offer styling tips on how to mix and match jewellery to create unforgettable Navaratri looks.
Day 1: Pratipada (Orange)
The first day begins with the colour orange, metal such as gold is an excellent combination with orange outfits, for they represent the vibrancy and enthusiasm of the festival. Complement this energetic hue with gold jewellery, such as a statement necklace or chunky bangles, to create a striking contrast.
Day 2: Dwitiya (White)
On the second day, white symbolizes purity and peace. Opt for silver jewellery at the crash.club, you will find an extensive collection of silver jewellery, perhaps a delicate silver necklace with white gemstones, to embody the serenity of this day.
Day 3: Tritiya (Red)
Red, representing the power and strength of the goddess, is the colour for day three. Adorn yourself with ruby or garnet jewellery, like a red statement ring or bold red earrings, to channel this fiery energy.
Day 4: Chaturthi (Royal Blue)
Royal blue represents divine grace on the fourth day. Enhance this regal colour with sapphire from the best mines, sourced by C. Krishniah Chetty Group or lapis lazuli jewellery, such as a blue beaded necklace or elegant blue bangles.
Day 5: Panchami (Yellow)
Plenitude are these yellow gems such as citrine, topaz, heliodor, sapphire and tourmaline. Yellow signifies the joy and happiness of Navaratri’s fifth day. Add a touch of sunshine with citrine or yellow sapphire jewellery, like a sparkling yellow pendant or a stack of yellow gemstone rings.
Day 6: Sashti (Green)
Green, symbolizing growth and prosperity, grace the sixth day. Embrace this lush colour with emerald or peridot jewellery, weaving into boundless wonders of adorable art, such as a green statement necklace or delicate green stud earrings.
Day 7: Saptami (Grey)
Grey represents the power of transformation on the seventh day. Opt for hematite or labradorite jewellery, like a grey beaded bracelet or a statement grey brooch, to reflect this transformative energy.
Day 8: Ashtami (Purple)
On the eighth day, the purple gem can heal spiritually, emotionally and physically. The colour is also a signifier of divine knowledge. Wear amethyst or purple sapphire jewellery, such as a purple gemstone ring or elegant purple earrings, to embody wisdom and spirituality.
Day 9: Navami (Peacock Green)
The final day is the peacock green celebration of all the Goddess forms. Complement with Tahitian pearls with a dark green body colour and peacock overtones, this vibrant colour with jewellery combined with a variety of gemstones is a perennial favourite or go in for a piece of peacock-inspired pearl string set for a majestic look.
Styling Tips for Navaratri Jewellery
Mix Metals and Gemstones: Do not be afraid to mix metals and gemstones to create a unique look. For example, pair a Gold necklace with a Silver bangle or blend different coloured Gemstone Rings for a playful contrast.
Layering: Layering jewellery is a trend that adds depth and dimension to your look. Combine a long necklace with shorter ones or stack bangles and bracelets for a stylish effect.
Statement Pieces: Make a statement with bold jewels such as chunky necklaces or oversized earrings. Let this statement piece be the focal point of your outfit.
To Balance: If your outfit is already vibrant and colourful, opt for subtle jewellery to balance the overall look. Conversely, if your attire is understated, choose bold and vibrant jewellery to add a pop of vibrancy.
