United Arab Emirates, November 5, 2018

All that glitters is gold during Utsav, a festive day dedicated to the celebration of lights and life. But just as trends come and go, precious jewellery, which is one of the highlights of the season, also undergoes evolution to keep up with contemporary fashion.

Whether you want to step out in style or save a token for generations to come, here are the jewellery trends of 2018 that you could invest in for a memory of a lifetime:

Statement jewellery: Bring on the chandbalis and jhumkas to spice up your attire. Contrary to popular belief, these accessories won't make you look overdressed, but rather infuse a flair of elegance and style. If you're going big on earrings, then leave the blingy necklace at home. Instead you can suit up with some dazzling arm candy.

Layered necklace: Here's an option that could easily be paired with a stunning lehenga or a casual set of shirt and jeans. Appealing to both worlds, layered necklaces boast an air of simplicity and screams contemporary, regardless of the era we live in. You can either go with multiple mid-length pieces, or combine a choker with a majestic long trinket.

Multicolour jewellery: There was a time when we'd hiss at anything that had a rainbow colours, often labelling it as 'tacky' or 'childish', but who knew that multicolour sets of jewelleries would return to the scene with a vengeance? Be it rings or other things, we'd recommend pairing the accessories with outfits donning monotone shades for a beaming Diwali!

Pearls: Pearls are no longer associated with grandmas. The vintage look is back looking bigger and bolder. Intricately enclosed in a bed of a gold, your Diwali outfit is bound to glisten with a set of freshwater pearls. Opt for a simple necklace or try a chunky bracelet to match that snazzy anarkali.

Studs: Our childhood favourite makes a comeback. There's no defeating stud earrings when it comes to a chic minimalist look. Look into a range of ear pieces laced with precious stones such as sapphires or rubies. Whether you go for sweet tiny versions or sparkly big gunners, the stud earring promises sophisticated vibes, no matter the outfit.

Brooches: It's time to blow off the dust and embrace the return of the antique ornaments. Inspired by flora and fauna, artisans offer an unlimited variety of brooches that are aesthetically charming enough to jazz up your contemporary garment. Brooches are fantastic as a wearable, and can even be passed on as an heirloom!
