Hi girls. How are you all? Really sorry for no post last week. Actually I was super busy at work. So how was your Valentine’s day? This year I have received lots of love from my readers which has made this Valentine’s Day more special for me. Thank you so much for your love and motivation. Missing a week’s post made me realize how much I love writing. I really missed you all. So getting back to what we love most. Shopping !!!! Yeaaahhhh. LOL. Today’s post is about Chandni Chowk and I will tell you how awesome it is for shopping if you have never been there.
I am sure most of you must have heard about Chandni chowk. I love street shopping and living in NCR without shopping in Chandni chowk is a crime. It has beautiful bridal stuff at such cheap prices that you just can’t believe. But I personally love it for real silver jewellery shopping. Yes there’s a lane in Chandni chowk fully dedicated to real silver pieces. The lane is called Dariba kalan.
When you are coming from Red Fort towards Chandni chowk , on the left side after crossing gurudwara there is a blue board for Dariba Kalan (There is a very famous Jalebi wala at the corner). Take left from there and here Dariba kalan lane starts. The main silver jewellery shops are at the right side.
I can’t explain you how awesome Dariba kalan is! Have you seen the beautiful antique silver jewellery from Amrapali jewellers and others? It is kind of that and it’s so stunning. I have taken the below picture for you guys so that you can see the type of jewellery that this market offers.
I am a big fan of jhumkis and I like the real big ones. Big silver jhumkis here start with around 3500 INR. It’s real silver. I have bought these small jhumkis and the big ring from there. These jhumkis are the small one and they costed me 2200INR and this ring is for 2500INR.
There are 4-5 shops at the right where you can find tons of pieces from jhumkis to rings to big pendants to chandbalis (oh I can’t explain how mesmerizing is the scene when they take out a big packet of stunning jhumkis and balis. I wish I had the money to buy it all. LOL). From my personal experience I will recommend you guys shop no.1730 (Anil K.Seth & Sons). I always find unique pieces in this shop and both of my ring and jhumkis I have bought are from there only. The shopkeeper is super polite and he will show you all the pieces with lots of interest. There are also other shops but I like this one the most.
If you go straight at the end of Dariba, there’s a lane at the right which is called Kinari Bazaar. Now this lane is amazing for artificial jewellery, laces and marriage stuff. The laces are so beautiful. Look at the picture below.
There are so many shops with huge collection of variety of laces. The boutiques give laces at so high prices and when you go to Kinari Bazaar you can get same lace at such a cheap price. That’s what I love about street markets of Delhi. There’s so much variety and quality in the street markets like Sarojini Nagar and Chandni Chowk that you will instantly fall in love with these.
So guys this was all about my shopping areas in Chandni Chowk. Whenever you come to Delhi, I highly recommend you visiting Chandni Chowk for its uniqueness and variety (And for my favourite Silver jewellery). Also do share with me what you wore on the V day and any unique info that you can give to me about Chandni chawk. I would love to hear from you guys. Muah. BBye for now. Feel beautiful be stylish.
