Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Flashes a Chameleon Ring At Cannes!


Dare to wear a chameleon on your fingers like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or a fully-grown crocodile like the Monica Bellucci. Not your cup of jewels? That’s what you think. Jewellery with animal motifs, however, tricky they may sound, are the most eye-catching tools for drool. It’s not only the stars on the red carpet who patronise them, even big jewellery houses like Cartier, De Grisogono, Chopard, Van Cleef & Arpels and Bulgari to name a few, have been vouching for it by launching animal inspired collections from years now. Back home in India, our home-grown jewellery designers too have a splendid repertoire on offer.


While Aishwarya’s Boucheron ring or Monica’s exaggerated high jewellery is a tad bold for some, the world of animal jewellery is a fertile ground for creativity. From humble ones like butterflies, birds,peacocks, pandas, bees and owls, one can flaunt striking beauties like tigers, panthers, snakes and what not. The amount of play that happens with coloured gemstones and metal patinas is another story all together.

Sounds like entering a jungle and not knowing which one to pet and which one to stay away from? The rules are simple. Animals have their own personality, which make them ‘spiritually’ relevant.

If you are opting for an everyday wear, pick one that your soul finds itself drawn to. You can take astrological advise too, to find your lucky one. Use it to reveal your persona. If you want to be coy, be the butterfly, and if you don’t mind spitting some venom, then it’s snake for you! Be honest and fearless. Don’t make a hodgepodge of motifs on a single day; one at a time ladies or a full set if you may.

Big pendants and necklaces grab the maximum eyeballs. Choose colours that enhance your outfits. If you are going totally traditional, then perhaps a panda is not your motif. For simpler statements, wear earrings and rings only. Ground rule: ‘use your discretion’. In the end, whichever creature you choose to don, don’t look tacky. This is your ticket to rise to the top of the fashion food chain!
