Earring, Everyday: Tasseled Delight

I found these beauties in Jaipur, two years back, and they remain one of my favourite earrings to date :) They are a delightful blend of traditional and modern - the pattern and the gold are very Indian - but the dash of pink is quite a surprise!

Earring, Everyday: A Mystical Journey

This earring is extremely special to me, I bought it towards the end of my long trip to Ladakh, where I had but a slim shopping budget! It is a Tibetan Prayer Wheel which you can wear in your ears, topped off with delicate gold lettering.

Do you have any such super-special pieces in your collection?

Love, Shubhi.

Earring, Everyday: Ladylike

These ruby drops from my mother's collection, are definitely elegant and ladylike. A necklace to go, with pearls,little diamonds, and matching jewels, are understated opulence! This picture somehow reminds me of the time I played dressup inside my mother's closet, as a child. Maybe because of the hearscarf. But mostly, because that's exactly how I felt when I was shooting this :)

Love, Shubhi.

Earring, Everyday: Kundan

I fell in love with this fusion Kundan earrings the moment I set my eyes on them. They immediately made me feel that I could team them up with  Indian wear, and they could double up as statements with western clothes as well!

So far they have been to one wedding, and I hope they will go out for another spin soon.

Love, Shubhi!

Earrings, Everyday: Bejeweled Disks

Hello everyone, today I'm putting in the earrings that you may have probably seen a lot, on the blog. They are from Splash, and for a statement-jewellery lover like me, they are an amazing find! They totally give off some Arabic, Bohemian, Costume-Jewellery sort of a vibe, and I couldn't be happier with them!

I got them at a Splash sale a year back, and they are definitely a highlight among my earrings.

Until tomorrow then, cheers! Happy Tuesday :)

Earring, Everyday: Black Swan

Feather earrings exude a strange sense of recklessness, of a wispy birdlike beauty, when you wear them. The colourful ones are pretty and boho, in their own way. But black feathers are quite, quite different!

They bring out this dark, less than perfect side that you have. They are bold, they are adventurous, and beautifully so. They blend in with your hair, and tickle your neck, and whisper secrets you don't want to hear, in your ears.

Do you own a pair? How do you feel when you wear them?

Until tomorrow then. Love!

Earring, Everyday: Elephant Cuff

Hello everyone! I'm back with a series of posts where I will be sharing and writing about a much loved accessory - Earrings! Every fashionista worth her salt has her collection of earrings, I'm sure. And what you wear in your ears, surely defines your style, mood, and outfit!

We Indians are spoilt for choice when it comes to earrings. Every state and region boasts of its own beautiful ethnic styles, and then there are so many from around the world as well! Ear piercing in India is almost a cultural norm - And almost every girl resorts to earrings to feel pretty and extra-special when she dresses up.

My choice, when it comes to earrings, is eclectic- it is a mix of styles, and most of them are definitely towards the unusual side. I look for pieces that are unique - in terms of style, design, colour, and size! I have a pretty large and a wacky earring collection, consisting of vintage, traditional, and modern pieces. I used to make earrings as a kid - with beads, wire, and pliers, I was quite the jewellerysmith!

This said, I have a confession to make. I hardly wear earrings, on a regular basis. The small ones are pretty wearable, but I often lose sight of them! I have this self-made quote in my head (Not sounding pompous here, it is a stupid quote but it makes sense)

"Large earrings are for not using,
and small ones are for losing."  

Hah! But here I am, waiting to share a series of ear-adornment pictures with you, after a huge break of 6 months. *cringes with despair* You will find me here everyday, dexterously posting away!

An Elephant in your ears? How cool is that? That's exactly what came to my mind when my mother purchased this bangle/cuff whatever you call it. And I promptly put it in my ears. Its design is a strange mix of Indian Opulence with something Egyptian about it - totally up my alley!

 I'm opening up my Earring-a-day series with a hand-cuff, apologies. But there will be normal-er stuff as well, promise. So until tomorrow, cheers!
