Jewellery is unarguably the most crucial element of the bridal trousseau—choose well, and you’ll find that you can dress up and dress down the pieces for decades before passing them on to the next generation as a treasured heirloom. This year, the pursuit of designs that blend the classic with the contemporary can only lead to Vogue Wedding Show - The Virtual Edit 2021. The mobile- friendly platform unites the most sought-after jewellery makers in the country to ensure that the modern bride has access to the finest that the world of jewellery has to offer over the course of March to July 31, 2021.
If you’re looking to get a head start on your bridal trousseau, take notes from Vogue’s edit of the best fine diamond and polki jewellery pieces from the online wedding exhibition.
All the fine diamond pieces you need to bookmark
The quest for building the perfect jewellery collection starts with statement-making diamond pieces, and Forevermark’s finely crafted designs make for the perfect candidate. Look to the Red Carpet earrings, set with round and pear Forevermark diamonds, to add an elegant touch to couture lehengas and cocktail gowns alike. Those looking to make an entrance will also want to bookmark Amrapali’s diamond choker and earrings set—embellished with south sea and cultured pearls—for making an impact.
The beauty of a showstopper diamond necklace is that it can make a statement all on its own—and further proof can be found in the Canary Keshi necklace by Rose, exquisitely crafted with south sea pearls and brilliant cut diamonds. The Diamond Floral Cluster necklace and earrings (which bring out the beauty of rose-cut and full-cut diamonds) by Jaipur Gems also make for a covetable addition for connoisseurs of fine design.
Those looking to command attention will want to bookmark the Brilliance set by Occasions Fine Jewellery, finished with lustrous diamonds designed to get you noticed. And on those nights when you’d like to indulge your inner showstopper, look no further than the high-impact diamond choker and earrings, complete with pink stones set as floral motifs, from The House of MBJ. For the bride looking to add some colour to her look via jewellery, the diamond choker with emerald drops from the Legacy Collection from Hazoorilal Legacy will make for a timeless treasure.

All the polki jewellery you need to bookmark
Over the years, polki has been regarded as an integral cornerstone of one's trousseau—no jewellery collection is complete without one. Connoisseurs of classics will want to opt for Birdhichand Ghanshayamdas Jaipur’s Antique Long Far Size polki set featuring intricate rose-cut trellises and coordinated earrings. Or invite some vintage charm to your look with Raj Mahtani Couture Jewels’ baroque pearl and polki choker, accentuated with Colombian emeralds. Crafted with polki and green stones, the Fusion Geometric Uncut Diamond necklace from Mehta & Sons x Anjali Bhimrajka is sure to inspire envy as well. Emeralds also assume centre stage in the Chandrakanta necklace set by Raniwali 1881, which features polki embedded with coloured stones and pearls.
Maximalists can also take cues from the Navratan Symphony necklace and earrings from Hazoorilal by Sandeep Narang. For the perfect finishing touch, Sunita Shekhawat Jaipur’s Seven-Layer Carnation necklace with lustrous diamonds, polki and drops of emeralds makes for a modern-day must-have.
