The versatility of Indian or traditional jewellery is such that it can easily blend into contemporary daily wear. My fascination for bracelets had started in the early years when I saw monks in the mountains wrapping prayer beads around their wrists. I am not much of a bangle person but love the idea of having something alternative around my wrist. If you walk into a small Tibetan store, you would be amazed by how many lovely yet not very expensive beaded bracelets are out there. My favorite pick here has always been a jade bracelet as the green goes with almost all things you wear and stands out as well as pairs wonderfully with any kind of a wrist watch.
There are also some pieces with wonderful inlay work of turquoise and coral that you might chance upon in north-eastern stalls or Tibetan stores. If you want to push the envelope a bit more, you can visit CARAVAN at Phoenix Market City. They have beautiful handcrafted jewellery, keeping alive age-old Indian craftsmanship with a contemporary sensibility. My personal pick would be their Bidri work bracelet and pieces from the Gehna Collection.
