The Earring Obsession!

Everything has a beginning and there is always a first time! Two most important things that always have made my sister love ethnic fashion so much are the winged eyeliner and JHUMKAS! (Earrings)! 

And so the cycle began window shopping – setting eyes on a particular Earring / jhumka – saving the Pocket money šŸ˜› – shopping – followed by more window shopping! And so on and so forth! 

Lanes of Colaba Causeway, street vendors on Linkin Road and Hill Road, Handicrafts exhibitions were our most common addas! 

Over the years we have a few ‘cannot live without’ pair of earrings! The beauty is that they alone can add the much needed ethnic essence to any outfit for any particular occasion! 


Plain solid color kurti or stand collar or ethnic maxi dress or short kurti and trousers you name it and they go with it! 

Big chunky pair of jhumkas are what we call THE EARRINGS ESSENTIAL! 

Silver jhumkas are very versatile and usually go on every color. If you are someone who loves to wear earthy colors, you should invest in them. On the streets you get these very cheap for less than 500 rs. If you are looking for proper silver ones you will get them in any range between 2000-7000 ( usually depending on the size)

The Kashmiri pattern Jhumkis look lovely, subtle and beautiful. They can be worn on the simplest of the outfit. Perfect for casual functions.( Colaba causeway 250/-) 

Minakari jhumkis are light weight and are available in various lovely color combinations. Can  choose Kundan jhumkis to add the nuch needed festive look!! (150-300 rs)


Silver danglers pair perfectly with indian, western and also with indo- western fusion.  Get them in all shapes and sizes! If you have a long neck, these are for you!! We usually buy from tribe by amrapali ( the chandrika series has some really pocket friendly options) and Jaypore for some authentic designs. As usual, Colaba causeway is our all time favorite to pick up oxidised danglers at dirtcheap cost! šŸ˜


One single pair can solve all your festive / wedding jewellery woes! Invest in a good pair! These are absolute essentials of the earring world! 

Kundan – 3000/- ( exhibition buy)

Silver – 4500/- ( colaba causeway silver jewellery shop below McDonald’s)

Few golden pieces to add the minimal bling! Accessorize, Claire’s and H&M have some sleek designs! 

Last but not the least – we can never get over earcuffs!
