5 new-age temple jewellery neckpieces to add to your summer wedding wear
You're going to be stared at. A lot
Temple jewellery has its origins in South India, dating back to the period between the 9th century and the 16th century when the Chola, Pandya and the Krishnadeva Raya dynasties were in power, and gave gods and goddesses ornamental offerings crafted by skilled artisans. Over the years, its influence has gained momentum with women incorporating the traditional jewellery in their wardrobes, especially wedding wear.
Zoya’s latest collection, Inheritance, gives temple jewellery a contemporary update through its geometrical shapes and emblazoned motifs, making it an ideal pick for a modern-day bride or bridesmaid who wants to add a statement piece to her lehenga choli or sari.
Each piece is crafted out of pure gold and is decorated with ivory enamel, diamonds and pearls. From chokers to heavy pendant sets, these statement picks are ideal to style your summer wedding wear with.
