Jadau and Gold Jewellery combination options


#1: Jadau with a coloured stones

Jadau jewellery with an emerald or ruby stone hanging can add so much character to your necklace.

#2: Layering Jadau with Pearls

Jadau with pearls give a soft break to the polki pieces. You can opt for different shades of pearls. South sea pearls in different sizes  are a great option. Also layering your necklace with two pieces is advantageous. It gives you two separate necklaces which can be repeated easily and at the same time gives you a heavy timeless look. In this case a choker and a long one look so apt!

#3: One solid necklace

If you don’t have major budget constraints and are looking for a royal vibe, such a solid necklace with big polki pieces is nothing but Grand! It may not have great repeat value but you only get married once! Though i still recommend to keep in mind how you can make changes to utilise it later.

#4: Gold Temple jewellery

Gold Jewellery is a great investment compared to jadau. And it can be sometimes more reasonable giving you a heavy look at the same time. Temple jewellery usually has beautiful and intricate carvings that are truly timeless. Pairing it with chunky gold jhumkis is highly recommended for a truly traditional look.

#5: Chokers

Chokers are such a beautiful style of neck pieces a bride can adorn. Though chokers i highly recommend for brides with a longer neck. This accentuates the length of the neck giving a slimmer look. A wider and lower neck blouse is perfect for it to show against your skin.

#6: Multi Layering

Multi layering gives a good break from monotony. A jadau necklace with a string of emeralds or ruby stones is a great option of mixing and matching polki and precious stones. Another tip would be to choose same coloured drops on the jadau necklace as the long beaded strings!( like the bride in the attached pic). This would create a contrasting and a matching look at the same time.
