Thewa Jewelry


I have been waiting to write this post for a while now. I was really excited when I found this cool and unique jewelry style and couldn’t wait to share it with the rest of y’all!

I found this, as part of my research for Kundan jewelry. I never knew this kind of style existed. I am familiar with “filigree” work, but that is mostly done in silver. I had never seen similar kind of work done with gold.

I found from my research that it is a 400 year old art and the jewelry is created by fusing 23K gold with colored handmade glass. The common glass colors are mostly red, green and blue because they mimic the tones of rubies, emeralds and sapphires. The designs can vary depicting animals like peacocks or elephants or can also depict day-to-day life, legends and even hunting scenes.

What’s even better is that there are so many choices out there to select from and one should definately own one piece of Thewa jewelry.

Now, the prices for these pieces can vary based on the gold being used. You can have gold plated casings on the glass vs actual 23K gold casings.

I like this set because you can wear the pendant with a simple gold chain and it would work with any kind of outfit.

This is such a classic piece. It has that “khaandaani” look to it with the three strand “maharani” style design.

Thewa and Kundan together! Fabulous! The price is quite steep for this piece( $1487.50) but the design is exquisite.


Buy via Jusra

I love this set for its modern feel. The understated design in the earrings do make it look very traditional and at $937, it is a little more reasonable than the Kundan set.

Enjoy the selections!

Ban The Man Hairband

Thats Amitabh Bachan and Abhishek Bachan at the 53rd National Film Awards with Amitabh looking all dapper and Abhishek, and how do we say this delicately but… with that over gelled and oily hair slicked back with that hairband…

Ok here’s the deal, I don’t know who said or decided that man hairbands were all cool and metrosexual and what have you, but they are not. Especially not when worn that way. No. No. No.

Om Shanti Om Music Launch


Well there is a big war going on and I don’t want to be in the middle of it. You know! The whole Deepika vs Sonam war! Who will be better? Which movie will do better at the BO? So it wouldn’t be fair of me to cover the Saawariya music launch and ignore Om Shanti Om. No effing way!

Anyhoo, just because I said I will cover the event, doesn’t mean I have to be nice! I am totally disappointed at Deepika’s outfit. I love the neckline of the blouse but overall the outfit is just too “blah”. I wish there was more detail to this bland sari. And that rhinestone belt…oh so tacky!

Another fashion offender was Ms. Shreya Ghoshal with this uggggly dress and even uglier white tights! It seems like you either have a sense of style or you don’t and Shreya seems like she just doesn’t!

Thank god for Kirron Kher! She stuck to traditional (which she always does) and didn’t go wrong! Her jewelry was minimal and that bag was simply too cuute!

Spotted: Gayatri Joshi


Wow! Couldn’t even recognize Gayatri Joshi at the Bentley presentation held on 17th September. She looks so frazzled! Seemed liked she just rolled out of bed and put on her clothes. Oh well, I am pretty impressed with the Gucci crystal clutch. The lady has good taste in her bags!



Buy via Saks Fifth Avenue for $795

P.S If you forgot who Gayatri Joshi is, here is a reminder. She starred with Shah Rukh Khan in Swades.

See That Snake?


Here’s what has been creeping up the must have accessory list with stealth and style and you spell it as s n a k e! Portia De Rossi wore one around her neck at the Emmys that looked like it was spewing out the fabric of her dress and I thought that was such a fabulous touch! Since we can’t have a couture gown to make that look work, here’s the next best option.. accessorize, accessorize, accessorize.

I love this necklace; throw around a low necked or bare shouldered dress and you are ready to smolder! Even better, move past the black dress, and brave a midnight blue or a regal purple and see envy take root wherever you point your finger to!


Buy Via Ross-Simons

Cocktail rings and statement rings are all the rage but here’s a look you won’t see every Jane sporting! Have that snake curl around a finger and make a statement that is bold yet laced with personal style!


Buy Via Ebay

And how fabulos are these black faux onyx snake earrings? Every time you twirl your hair or do a diva toss, you get to tease just a bit with these wavy, beautiful, gliterring earrings…


Buy Via Pugster

And finally, this gorgeous bracelet/bangle! Instead of the usual red stone for the eye, it has a green one, far less creepy that way and far more ‘style-appeal’!! Sure fire way to jazz up any look, any day, for some quick top of the charts style quotient!


Buy Via Urban Outfitters

With accessories like these, instant style revival is but guaranteed. And they say snakes can’t be trusted!! Sheesh!
