Actress Shriya Pilgaonkar loves to flaunt jewels which are feminine yet subtle
Veteran actor Sachin and Supriya Pilgaonkar’s daughter Shriya is pretty versatile when it comes to her jewellery style. A Kathak dancer, Shriya comes with serious theatre and film legacy. But she is not someone to rest on her parents’ laurels and is out too make her own niche in Bollywood. Donning many hats, this vivacious actress refuses to follow a particular trend and be predictable in her fashion choices.
With a love of jewellery inherited from her mother, Shriya shares the most precious pieces in her collection. The Jewellery Diaries caught up with the fashion-forward Shriya Pilgaonkar to understand her jewellery mantras:
Minimal is in
She is not one of those young actors who would love to layer her hands with a bunch of bracelets or variety of rings. She laughs, “My fingers are very delicate. So even if I love wearing rings they tend to fall off.” Shriya has honed her creative eye and taste for unusual jewels from her mom Supriya who has an impeccable taste in fine jewellery.
She is definitely more of a diamond girl so and has weak spot on solitaires. As young as she is, Shriya loves to adorn in solitaires which goes well with any kind of western outfits. But when it comes to traditional Indianwear silver is her metal of choice.
Accessorize it right
Her piece of advice to girls’ of her age is to accessorize the right way. In showbiz, her advice is to be like a style chameleon and at the same time to change your style according to occasions. “There are no rules, just be yourself,” she says.

Red carpet look
Sleek and sophisticated is her jewellery philosophy. The most important pieces in her jewellery box are her earrings.
Shriya is blessed with good collarbones and she loves to flaunt it by wearing a pearl and gold choker or coral flower stringed neckpiece with a gold brooch.
