The bib necklace
Sweet and simple – that’s how we describe a pendant necklace. Whether you’re wearing your office formals or a skater dress or even a saree, the pendant necklace will never go wrong. In fact, if you’re one of those ladies who love to keep it minimal, don’t forget to stock pendants of different shapes (from classy heart shaped emerald ones to the quirky owl statement pendants) to match your outfits for different occasion. Attach it with thin, long or medium chains, or even with coloured string to experiment as much as you feel like.
A recent member of the jewellery family, this back necklace is for those elegant cocktail parties in backless or off shoulder gowns. Even if you’re wearing a backless lehenga, these strings embellishes your nape in a rare and classic manner. We suggest don’t go for any other neckpieces if your choosing this one to make the beautiful aura of a back necklace stand out.
Your wardrobe is never complete without this classic delight. Save it for those when you need to look your formal best like an interview, a formal get together or for those days when you want to look matured and poise. We have an amazing collection of pearl chokers and collar necklaces – these are the perfect accessories to team up with your pastel sarees or salwar suits.
Yes you hear it right! This will literally chain you down. A necklace by nature, it’s used to wrap around your belly, shoulders and other parts of the body. Team it with a crop top or halter top to be a stunner. This kind of necklace doesn’t really go on a formal occasion. It can be an amazing choice for a vacation at the beach or while you go clubbing at your sexiest best.
