Statements are making a comeback in simpler shapes, bright gold, embellished with split details and geometric designs and to explain jewellery trends the best BlabberCat caught up with Malika Jouels speak and strike contemporary style.
Introducing two lines, European line which is made in Europe and Indian line which is made in India but in European designs, Madhu Khaitan displaces separate windows with pre styled festive trends. Indian jewellery emerges in a different style, stepping away from jadau and kundan. The European line best sells the spring bracelet inspired the international design sensibility and modern use of jewellery. A wrap around bracelet completely made of gold and diamonds or a flexible tennis bracelet are all imported because India lacks the machinery currently. This particular collection of bracelets are popular for everyday wear due to its adaptability to any outfit, be it smart casual or Indian formal. Every lady wants a versatile value to jewellery. Earlier jewellery was like an investment, but now we use it a lot more and that’s why the pieces we select should be convenient enough to be handy. Another type of bracelet we loved from the collection was ‘filigree’ also known as jaali work, where the work is on both the sides. We did notice a decline in the bangle style bracelets.

“Tennis bracelets are definitely the most bought item at our store because the traditional churis cannot be worn with denims or a shirt. The latest trend to look out for is pink gold and exact same reverse sides. This goes for earrings as well. And when it comes to earrings, the age-old chandbalis are back. Our new focus this season is experimenting with all the colours and tones of gold, and all of this is done in Europe,” chorused Madhu and Rajnandini.
