Mumbai based Jessica Jolly’s wedding to Dubai based VishaakhBhaala, a dentist by profession was planned to perfection in Mumbai.
Right from searching for best jewellery options online to visiting multi-designer stores for her ensembles, Jessica made sure that each and every detail was executed well. She says, “I am not too much of a jewellery person but I trusted my mother and sister for their choices.”
Though vintage jewellery is not something she is too fond of but Jessica cherishes some of her mother’s wedding jewels –rings and delicate neckpieces. A pair of her mother’s gold bangles with meenakari work is what she holds dear and wore on her wedding day.
She speaks to The Jewellery Diaries about her sparkly look and glittery choices for her wedding.
For Sangeet ,Jessicaaccessorisedher Katrina Kaif inspired red outfit with elegant jewellery. She wore a diamond and ruby studded neckpiece teamed with a matching diamond and pearl drop long earrings. The neckpiece was gifted to her by her mother-in-law. She got the set customised from her family jewellerRajpal Sons in Delhi. She adds, “My mother-in-law knew I would be wearing red outfit hence she chose to add a big ruby in the centre of the diamond neckpiece.”
A look out-of-the-ordinary was her jewellery inspiration. She explains, “I love bright reds but I knew I didn’t want to wear it for my wedding day. I finally chose olive and pink lehenga with gold work as I had always thought of wearing gold jewellery for the main wedding day.”
She went beyond the usual kundanand polki trend and sported a chunky floral neckpiece in oxidised gold with coloured stones at the edge. She picked up this stunning statement piece from AnmolJewellers in Mumbai. She fondly recalls, “My dad’s friend is IshuDatwani of AnmolJewellers and insisted that we go to Anmol to buy the jewellery. I’m glad that we did.” And as soon as she visited the store her eyes were glued to the gold piece. Detailing is what she looks for in jewellery. She adds, “I saw this beautiful set on display and it took my heart away. That moment I knew this was what I was looking for. I was lucky to find something ready without getting into the hassle of customising.”
Other statement pieces included long gold danglers, coloured stone maatha-tika, a sling nathandcoloured stone haath-phool.
