Choosing jewelry for Saree

I know its quite difficult to choose the perfect jewelry for a saree. The fact is that most of us don’t wear saree every day. It just became occasional wear. We get confused in choosing jewelry for saree. So from my experience of wearing saree from my teenage, I have learned a few important things about choosing jewelry for saree. Today I am sharing those tips to you that how would you choose perfect jewelry for your saree.

These are the following tips

Border of the saree

To select the suitable jewelry you have to find the color of the border of your saree. Most of the sarees come in Golden, Beige, and Silver border.

For Silver border saree, go for Diamond, Whitestone, Oxidised Silver jewelry.

If the saree border is in some other color, You can choose a piece of jewelry in the color of the saree border.

Based on saree draping style

If you are wearing pleated pallu then opt for a short necklace. If you are wearing the saree in a free pallu style then a long chain with a pendant will look good.
