Great accessories can make or break an outfit. Whether it is a new outfit you wish to debut with panache this festival season, or an old favourite you're looking to breathe new life into, accessories are key. We're sure you have a preference for watches and footwear, but you might really appreciate Binks' list of stores for jewellery and bags (curated from your recommendations, our favourites and the lovely Madhulika’s staples) that will seed some special accessorizing ideas.
Temple Jewellery- Vriksham Jewelry™️
Keeping in mind the festival season and the wedding rush the country as a whole is going through, good temple jewellery might be the perfect addition to your accessory collection. It's a classic for a reason and will pair well with everything from a kurta in the form of a statement neckpiece to a pattu saree with a hip belt.
Luxury Silver Jewellery- Prade Jewels
If you're looking for some well designed silver jewellery, Prade is the right place to look. They are on the higher end as far as budgets go but if you're on the lookout for jewellery that won't fade or fall apart, silver is a viable option. Silver jewellery is also easy to style with both Indo-western as well as ethnic outfits.
Handcrafted Terracotta Jewellery- Ekaa
Ekaa's handcrafted terracotta jewellery is lightweight, extremely wearable, sustainable and perfect for all your everyday Indo-western clothes. They would also make for excellent gifts!
Pearl Jewellery- Sparkle and Glow
Sparkle and Glow has a huge variety of designs but the ones that stand out the most are their statement pearl pieces. Their pearl chokers definitely belong on your wishlist for just being as fashionable as they are traditional.
Artisan Ethnic Jewellery- Zola India
Everything that you see from Zola India is an absolute work of art that celebrates rural and folk artisans. The collections revive age-old craftsmanship and heritage pieces that are essentially wearable art. We can gush about this forever but you need to see these for yourself to truly appreciate them.
Colour-filled Jewellery- Uttara
If your outfit needs some colour, a few pieces from SouthSide4U might work beautifully. Their unique designs and well-curated colour combinations add the right pop of colour and make your outfit stand out. They have some classic designs too but we definitely recommend playing with some colour.
Kundan and Stone Jewellery- PetalsbySwathi
Petals by Swathi's kundan jewellery will grab your attention with designs that range from elegant to eye-catching. Their Afghani Glass Collection with customisable colours has caught ours. The whimsical neckpieces are sure to add drama to your simple kurtas.
Everyday Office Jewellery- Lune
It is surprisingly difficult to find chic everyday jewellery of good quality in India, which is what makes Lune a great find. Lune has a treasure trove of elegant, wearable accessories from bracelet charms and nose pins to necklaces in multiple metal options to suit your requirements.
Handmade Handbags- Alankrit.in
Alankrit has handmade handbags that in their own words combine weaving tradition with contemporary style. They are the triple threat (of fashion)- chic, sustainable and affordable. Need we say more?
Crossbody bags - Cordstudio
For any capsule or sustainable wardrobe, a great addition is a neutral sling or crossbody bag that not only adds style but has great functionality. A good bag is an investment that will pay off every time you have an outfit that doesn't have pockets (or you could just have pockets added to all your outfits at Binks). Either way, we're giving you a link to our favourite sling bags for the season that'll be perfect for your on-the-go days to festival soirees and everything in between.
Now that you're armed with accessories for every outfit you have in mind, time to get them stitched and home-delivered without a hassle at Binks. Go forth and accessorize!
