Every girl knows what a process getting ready for a pooja or a shaadi can be. The number of ethnic clothes and accessories that you need are limitless. So we’re here to make life a bit more simple and stylish for you! Here are 12 types of ethnic earrings that you need to have in your trinket box that will come to your rescue and help you look your best for any ‘Indian’ event.
1. Evergreen Jhumkis
Jhumkis or Jhumkas have never failed us. They blend in with every type of outfit when you want to oomph it up. There are all kinds available. You’ll find endless styles like with layers of latkans, silver engraved ones or simple multi-coloured drop ones. We’ve found this unique version just for you that you can easily pair with anything you wear without a second thought.
Danglers, as the name suggests, have little elements hanging below a centre piece. These earrings look gorgeous and they even show through an open hairdo. They go well with suits and anarkalis and you don’t even need to add a necklace if you don’t want to, because these are grand enough!
This style of earrings become broader towards the end and start from one small stud, similar to the shape of a chandelier. They’re perfect for adding oodles of glamour to your ensemble. We recommend you keep these for the events where you need to make a statement or want to dress up a simple outfit.
Deepika Padukone in Ram-Leela definitely inspired us all to add these to our collection. Multiple styles are available nowadays, but the one thing that remains constant is the semi circular edges and the crescent. This pair with white stones is a tad atypical and that’s why we love it!
Hoop balis are simple, elegant and a classic. They look amazing and are great for when you’re unsure of what to pair your outfit with. From plain hoops to ones with pearls or other detailing, they bring a timeless and stylish charm to your look.
If you’re a girl who likes to keep things, then a pretty pair of studs is going to be your best friend! From a single pearl design to a simple diamond or a small cluster of stones, you can wear them for any occasion.These elegant floral studs will help you look stylish without being OTT.
These are for the girl who likes to keep things conventional. These earrings come with long chains that get hooked or pinned on to your hair. They look great with updos as well as loose hairstyles. Wear these for shaadi functions and you’re sure to fetch a lot of compliments.
We think drop earrings look super elegant. They can be long or short, either way, they look beautiful. These ones are quite offbeat. The rectangular disc with blue stones neatly aligned and the large pearl drop look delightful. Pair them with anything from sarees to anarkalis.
These ones work like a needle and thread. You use the needle to insert these earrings into the earring hole and pull it on the other side as much as you want. The rest of the earrings work as a metal thread. These look simple but fancy and there’s no hassle of an earring fastener either. You can wear these with western outfits as well!
Ear cuffs have been quite a craze in recent times and for good reason. You can make them work for you with western as well as ethnic ensembles. This style is for the girl who likes experimenting when it comes to fashion. These ones with a cluster of pearls and stones are WOW!
Traditional Kashmiri earrings that include one pair of danglers that rest on the ear lobe and an extra chain with a drop going behind the ears for a gorgeous style statement. These one with red and green stones are a great find. Wear them with your desi outfits and let your ears do the talking.
We’ve all seen beautiful jhumars or passas that many brides wear on one side of their heads. These ones are a take on that. The earrings have strings that form a fan like structure and look even more gorgeous when they are matched with a heavy necklace. We like the white and blue combination in this pair.
