This trend has been on for almost a year now. If you haven't bought one yet, you are missing out on a major must-have. Not only do half-moon chunky gold earrings or chaandbalis as they are called in India, go very well with traditional ensembles, but they can also be teamed with western wear. You can pair your half-moon earrings with fusion wear too.

2. Floral jewellery

The best way to work with flower jewellery is to actually get it made on the same day, wear and throw at the end of the day. Another way is to purchase plastic flower jewellery that is also easily available in the markets now.

These have a longer shelf-life. Take a cue from Indian actor Bipasha Basu who wore flower jewellery during one of her pre-wedding functions. 

3. Diamonds

Not only because they are a girl's best friends, but also because they look elegant and very simple during a daytime ceremony. They key here is to keep the jewellery simple because carrying heavy jewellery during summers is too much hassle.

So even if you plan to wear heavy ensemble, a simple diamond neckpiece can make you look like a million bucks! If you cannot afford diamonds, and think that something similar would go with your outfit, then purchase American zircon-based jewellery pieces or simply go for imitation jewellery. Remember, simple, simple, simple! Take a cue from Heart Evangelista herself!

4. Headpiece or Maang tika

Yes, this is an essential piece. Even if you are not fond of earrings or heavy neckpieces, this can save the day for you. Just one maang tika can add a dash of style and tradition into your appearance.

Plus, if you feel that you are on a heavier side, a round and big maang tika actually makes your face look thinner and elongated. It's not just a piece of jewellery that you have to necessarily wear with lehengas, but you can also team it up with salwars suits and sarees.

5. Choker and seven-layered necklace or Satlada haar

We are clubbing both together because both of them are essential figures in a fashionista's wardrobe. While a choker can give you a lean and slender look (avoid if you have a heavy neck), satlada haar or the seven-tiered necklace will lend you a royal look.
