Guest Post (Luxehues.com) : Beauty for ages has been symbolic of the fairer sex and why not? After all, God created women as the symbol of beauty and love so that civilizations could grow and flourish. While God bestowed women with things like fragile stature, delicate skin and beautiful features that inherently became their strength, women over the ages have accentuated their beauty with grace. Jewellery has been one such element that has transcended generations, geographies, culture and ethnicity to become one with her. It is impossible to find a woman who has no penchant for jewellery in any form because jewellery has been an integral part of a woman’s personality across cultures and ages.
A Woman’s jewelry can be considered an expression of her innate feelings and feminine exuberance. Her jewellery is not merely a beautiful adornment but a piece of art that speaks volumes about her personality, mood, passion and a myriad of emotions rising and ebbing within her.
Now that we know a piece of jewellery is like a secret code that can decode everything from what her mood is like for the day to what her preferences may be and how she may like to express her thought, why not delve a little deeper into the various jewellery personalities we are like to bump into in our everyday life at work or off the street. Even better, if you are looking to buy a gift for someone but not sure what she is like. Here goes the decoding stuff
She loves to go the tried and tested way. So don’t experiment with her. From shimmering pearls to sober pastels, from sleek silver bracelets to elegant diamond pendants, everything that defines classic fashion is part of her collection. Calm and composed, she carries herself with poise and grace.
She loves the colours, the noise, the street food and the drama because she is our desi eclectic ‘Queen’. From sporting traditional jhumkas paired with scrapped jeans to a pair of neatly embroidered jootis, she can pick anything from across the length and breadth of Indian culture to adorn her. A bandhini dupatta paired with a flaired skirt or a few tinkling bangles on her wrist, she loves to mix and match the colours to keep her spirits high. Unpredictable and energetic, she can really catch you unawares.
She is a non-conformist to the core. Confidently defying norms, you will often find her decked in big bold accessories from semi-precious stones to heavy beaded funky adornments handpicked from places unheard of. High-pigment, primary colours born of nature, floral motifs and artistic indulgences feed her ‘living in the moment’ spirit. The vivacity of bold, natural colours excites her more than sweet pastels or soft, synthetic hues. Creative and adventurous at the same time, freedom of self-expression matters more to her than social acceptance and perception. So respect her choice and give her the space she needs.
She loves elegance and simplicity at the same time. Her preference for minimalism is both ubiquitous and infectious. She prefers to keep her look understated without compromising on her class when it comes to choice of clothes and accessories. She loves clean cuts, simple designs and artsy yet basic jewelry. A white crisp shirt paired with black pencil skirt teamed with pearls and heels gives her a fashionable high. Her work wardrobe is heavy with basics yet contemporary pieces from branded fashionwear to light yet stylized accessories. She is likely to incorporate lots of pastel shades in her collection. Predictable and easygoing, she is easily likeable and can adapt to any situation easily.
She gets excited about mixing up her style from time to time. She loves to have the best of both the worlds, the minimalist sheen combined with dramatic panache. For instance, a typical balanced expert would have basic elements, like textured long jackets in her wardrobe that she would mix and match with overstated pieces of jewellery to balance out the looks. From ethinic scarves to silk chinos, from handcrafted bracelets to statement neckpieces, everything looks elegant and appropriate on her. She is confident and self-assured with her style and very sensible to talk to. Open to ideas and different points of view, she can take decisions objectively. For instance while she wouldn’t mind splurging on a pair of gold earrings during Diwali, she is equally amenable to the idea of buying Gitinjali gold coins instead for investment during the occasion.
Now that you got the basic traits of various jewellery personalities in place, we hope you can get the right gift for her from this fabulous collection of jewellery on Luxehues.com or strike the right conversation with her next time around.
Good Luck and Happy Shopping!
