Diwali is one festival when women turn to jewellery in a big way! Keeping in mind the aesthetics of the modern Indian woman, jewellers across India present an assortment of enticing jewels – from plain gold temple jewellery to enamelled or gem-studded jewels that will be a fitting part of your celebrations this season.

Yogesh Bulchandani, CEO, Diamantina Fine Jewels. “These versatile pieces can be paired with traditional as well as Indo-western garments. We often team polkis with colourful gemstones, pearls and meenakari in floral patterns to create an aura of timelessness.”
