Do we always desire love in the same way? Sometimes all women need is love and appreciation from other women as well. This time for Valentines' Day, BlabberCat in collaboration with Rohita Jewellery, hosted a sundowner for a hand-selected group of strong and beautiful women who all came together to celebrate each other and we styled their jewellery according to their personality type.
Did you know - You can get way more mileage out of your jewellery trove if you know how to layer your pieces. But then why do we always end up wearing the same ring and earring that goes with everything every day and then get bored of it and buy another exciting piece that ultimately looses its shine in your eye sooner or later.
Wear heavy and dainty pieces at the same time.
Don't save that flashy necklace for a special occasion — go ahead and pair it with your simpler go-to pieces to make a statement all day, every day. Carved ruby. onyx, mother of pearl and amethyst - A modern take on the navratan necklace of yester years. Managing events on a huge scale for her company Eventzinspired, Preraana loves the idea of celebrating life and being well dressed just adds to it.
It's an Art to visualise your look from before
The Artroom girls - Ridhima Mundra (above) and Pritha Modi (below)
Ridhima's smart dinner look became dressy with a fall of gold leaves on the neck and a statement kadda. A spread of light weight floral shapes with a hint of blue and green, this piece would look the best against a darker solid colour.
While the with a traditional anarkali, Pritha's look was completed with a 9 stone chandbali earrings and navratan haar with semi precious stones and pearls. Just like royalty, she glided simply but strikingly and her take on trends is none - it is always traditional.
Don't be afraid to mix masculine and feminine pieces.

One thing stars have taught us when off duty; how to look glamorous in denims and tees. We loved the ethnic touch to her jacket and gave us lots of oppurtunity to match to her dynamic personality. So we combined an intricate filigree work necklace, prototype of which was developed on a 3D printer, hence the finess of the filigree work. Splashes of colour with semi-precious stones.
Embrace details on solid
Each one takes up a good amount of arm space, making them a great way to boldly layer without actually wearing a ton of jewellery. This piece is bold and rough cut corals with crystal motifs and baroque pearls. A red carpet ready look or even a date night for our glam product designer.
(Tip: Its a myth that you can't maximise your necklace and bracelet together.)
Don’t worry about spacing your necklaces evenly — let them fall where they may.

If off-duty stars have taught us anything, looking a little undone adds extra cool to any look. Faceted amethyst necklace on top and below that a floral creeper necklace with amethyst rough cut stones and baby pearl clusters. (Tip: Wearing some necklaces with pendants will help your chains stay untangled.)

(Tip: Gems, metals, leathers, tassels: When in doubt, wear all your favourite pieces at once to create a unique look that's totally personalised.)
Aventurine stones interspersed with Kundan Crystals and baby pearls and textured metal elements thrown in. Traditional elements used in asymmetrical fashion for a modern appeal.
Inspired by the temple setting around me, I opted for a free-flowing Indian boho princess look. The Nath is made of Kundan crystals with baby shell pearls and on the neck are three separates of kundan at the centre, green stone pendant necklace at the bottome and tiny pearl choker on top,
The head piece is a textured metal and multiple chains with crystals and baby pearls. Leaf motif runs through the front lines.
Shubhangini Bajoria - Elegant and soothing, a modern and fresh take on the baby pearl necklace woven in bib style. Belts are tie-ups with resin elements with metal and crystal embellishments finished with plaited suede. A trend-setter who took turns wearing the belt as neck tie-ups and kept a little English touch in her palate.
Sadhika Nayar wears a flouride rough cut stones neckpiece on top interspersed with Meena work motifs and the earrings are pearl and green onyx cabochons. A royal charm added by this fashionista as an ode to her roots, Green and red is a very traditional combination of clothes and jewellery and his look was love at first sight,
