Essential Jewellery that Feels Light on You and Your Pocket
The contents of an Indian woman’s jewellery box can be categorised into two - special occasion jewellery and everyday jewellery. The difference between the two lies largely in the amount of gold used. Everyday jewellery tends to be light weight. It focuses more on the lustre of gold than the use of diamonds or other precious stones. On the other hand, jewellery for special occasions may be heavier and studded with gemstones. The lightness of everyday jewellery makes them more budget friendly. Hence women buy essentially light collection jewellery designs more often than they buy statement pieces. Of all the jewellery, bangles are probably the most used everyday jewellery.
Why do Indian Women Wear Bangles?
Bangles are not only ornamental for an Indian woman. They also serve as a status symbol. Bangles are considered a sign of ‘suhaag’ or marital harmony for married women. A woman may occasionally forget to wear her earrings, but she will always have bangles around her wrist. Most women will wear bangles whether they are at home, in the office or out shopping at the mall. The bangles from our range of essentially light collection jewellery are designed to be simple yet elegant. Bangles can be worn on one hand or both hands. Some women prefer to wear a solitary bangle like the Chaste Pride Bangles or the Clefted Dazzle Bangles. Others prefer to stack a few bangles together. These bangles tend to be slimmer like the Breathtaking Designed Bangle or the Pleasing Leaves Bangle.
What Makes Essentially Light Collection Jewellery Designs Special?
The best essentially light collection jewellery helps you make a subtle style statement. Designs like the Styled Slender Bangle and the Wondrous Impulse Bangle are crafted so as not put any additional weight on the wrist. The new designs in essentially light collection jewellery are rarely studded with gemstones but ornamented in other ways. Etching the surface of the bangles is the most popular way of designing light bangles. This type of craftsmanship can be seen on the Speckled Etch Bangles and the Swishing Spangle Bangles. Alternatively, the bangles may feature cut out designs.
The Sylvan Decked Bangles and the Chisel Vision Bangles are two of our most popular cut work designs. There are bangles that come with rhodium plating which offers the pieces and enhanced look. For instance, the Sharply Guised Bangles. A thin rhodium coating over specific parts of a design can make it appear white. This creates a contrast and highlights a design. Designs such as the Vivid Winsome Bangles may also boast of enameling that gives them a splash of colour.
Yellow or White: How do You Like Your Gold?
When you look for trendy essentially light collection jewellery online, you get to choose from a range metals. Gold in its natural form is yellow, however, when mixed with other metals it can boast of other hues. For women who do not like gold, white gold is a popular alternative. A difference in colour does not imply a difference in quality. The colour of gold is determined by the metals mixed with pure gold. When gold is mixed with copper or zinc, it renders yellow hues seen in the Trailing Spray Bangles. However, if it is missed with nickel or palladium, it appears white. Our light weight bangles are typically made of gold. However, some of the designs like the Manasa Lattice Bangle can be custom made using white gold.
How to Buy Essentially Light Collection Jewellery?
Now you can easily buy essentially light collection jewellery online. At BlueStone, we offer a wide range of light weight designs that you can wear any day, anywhere. Designs like the Sleek Flaxed Bangle have less than 10grams of gold. On the other hand, others like the Flickering Fissure Bangles have a little more than 50 grams of gold. The weight of gold plays a significant role in determining the price of a piece of jewellery. However, this is not the only factor.
The carat value of gold also influences the price of jewellery. Our jewellery is made of 22kt gold but can also be custom made of 18kt gold. This reflects the amount of pure gold and other metals. Pure gold is also referred to as 24kt gold. However, this is too soft to maintain its shape as a piece of jewellery. Hence, it must be alloyed with other metals to harden it. 22kt gold has 22 parts of pure gold and 2 parts of copper or zinc. 18kt gold has 18 parts of pure gold and 6 parts of other metals.
