Body jewelry has always been a dominant feature of Indian culture and fashion. The tikka, armband and kamarband (an ornament that is worn around the waist and rests delicately just below the waistline) are just a few of the traditional body ornaments that Indian women wear to accent their ensembles. Recently, body ornaments have taken center stage on international runways, with leading fashion designers including Swarovski, Topshop and Alexander McQueen using body harnesses to accent their collections!
Body ornaments can transform a simple dress or saree into a showstopper, like Alicia Keyes did with her body harness above. A step up from ubiquitous necklaces, earrings and bracelets, body jewelry adds a unique touch to your outfit that sets you apart from the crowd. Just remember, body jewelry isn’t limited to bridal wear; it can be incorporated elegantly into any outfit.
Luxemi has a selection of versatile body jewelry pieces that will match nearly every outfit you own (see above). Wear an elegant cocktail saree with Luxemi’s Victorian Polki Tikka and Classic Armband with White Crystals to instantly elevate your look for a wedding or engagement. Or, try or our crystal belt/kamarband with red stone to add just a touch of bling to a colorful saree.
