Indian Inspired Jewellery

There's been a increase of Indian inspired jewellery in the mainstream western market. 
It started off when Karl Lagerfeld used the Tikka in his pre-fall 2012 Chanel runway show. Some of these pieces are lust-worthy, whereas some are just .. meh. For example the tikka and ear cuff combination. 

I adore the middle one, want it soooo much. I don't know what I would wear it with, but if I had a lust for list, this would be on top!

Asos have taken on this trend and released some of their own creations. 

Oasis Rhinestone Anklet: Silver for £10
ASOS Nose Ring & Linked Cross Earring: Gold tone nose rings with silver tone chain for £8
ASOS Mini Lampshade Tassel Earrings: Gold & Silver for £6
ASOS Hoop & Bell Earring: Gold for £8

 ASOS Hanging Flower Crown Headband: Rose Gold for £10
River Island Simple Skull Crown Head Band: Gold for £8
ASOS Pearl Hand Harness: Gold and Cream for £6

ASOS Petal Tikka & Ear Cuff: Crystal for £10
ASOS Pretty Vine Tikka: Silver Crystal & Gold Pink for £8

These are a lot cheaper than buying from Asian stores in England, and easier to wear I guess as most the Tikka's are bands that go around your head. 
I love how Asian jewellery has now become mainstream, even though it is weird seeing them being worn with Western clothing!

Much Love!


  1. A discussion of what motivates people to wear and enjoy jewelery with reference to the needs of vegan and vegetarian jewelery wearers. Why does anyone need jewellery? The answers are many and various. Bridal Ring Sets

  2. The jewelry business has been reusing for centuries. Truth be told a portion of the gold in your jewelry might have been being used since the hour of Jesus. Harmed unrecoverable jewelry is purchased at its characteristic loan interest rate

  3. Never use a rough clothe or clothe that may have dirt, dust, or grit on it to clean amber because of its softness. Never use acid to clean amber or wear amber when working with acids since acid will decompose amber.

  4. Diamonds are a significant piece of jewelry. The domain jewelry worth could be almost all the way dictated by the diamond. seiko tuna for sale
