However, when it comes to jewellery can we really pinch our pockets and get ourselves a steal deal with imitation jewellery? We say, why not? Let us put an end to this age-old dilemma by helping you with a few pointers that you can keep in mind when you’re hunting down the best Kundan imitation jewellery!
Imitation Jewellery- Boon or Bane?
Now before we share imitation jewellery buying tips with you, let us answer an age-old question for you.
Imitation jewellery- is it right for you?
As a designer, I’ve seen many a trend come and go, but the glamour and grace imitation jewellery exudes remained the same. While patterns evolved and styles improved, imitation jewellery, be it everyday wear or party specials remained one of the most versatile and affordable accessory choices for many. That being said, we’ve often come across jewellery lovers struggling to pick out the perfect selection for them! Gold being universal looks delightful no matter how or what you pair it with but when we are talking imitation jewellery, it’s tricky!
How to Hand-Pick the Perfect Imitation Jewellery?
There are 4 tips that you need to keep in mind when you’re looking at imitation jewellery online starting with-
Skin Tone & Face Shape
Have you ever come across a jewellery piece that felt like it was made just for you? That’s because the jewellery shade or tinge suited your skin tint perfectly making you both a ‘match made in heaven’. Let us break this down in a simpler way!
For instance, if you want to buy imitation temple jewellery online, instead of going for basic gold and silver tints, try finding one that suits your skin tone the best.
If you have a cooler skin tone, platinum or white gold would be the best for you.
On the other hand, if you have a warmer skin tone, pewter, copper, brass, or gold-plated imitation jewellery will fit your style.
The same goes for face shapes. When you’re shopping earrings, maang tikka, or anything similar, go for long danglers if you have an oval / round face shape instead of studs. It’ll balance out the shape and make your accessory stand out in the crowd.
Choose Your Jewellery Based on Occasion
The imitation jewellery you buy should not only match your preferences but the occasion too! When you’re shopping jewellery- always keep a pre-planned outfit or an occasion in mind! For instance,
If you’re shopping to bedazzle during the wedding season, traditional styles, soft patterns powered with ethnic engravings in red and gold would be really good for you. Our Ruby Rose in traditional Kundan with contemporary rose quartz is a classic example.
If you have daily wear or casual outfits in mind, you can go for contemporary styles in oxidized silver or antique brass! Something like this delicate bond of amethyst pearls on silver plated chain would b perfect for casual accessorizing!

Go for Versatility
That’s the best part about shopping imitation jewellery!! You can have a wholesome experience hand-picking different styles, patterns, and colours without having to worry about breaking your budget! That being said, if you’re the type who likes to complete ensembles with accessories, going for a versatile type that fits all your accessorizing purposes will be quite a buy for you! Imagine a gem studded choker necklace much like this Symmetry Sparkle in grey and white onyx beads! You can flaunt this imitation beauty on a day out with the girls and even spruce up your formal outfit to work with a dash of colours.
Check Your Destination
We know how careful you are when you’re shopping gold jewellery sets but here’s the thing- just because imitation jewellery comes within your budget bubble does not mean you can pick up a pair of earrings from just about anywhere! Imitation jewellery usually contains a whole lot of different metals or materials like brass, iron, steel, copper etc. lack of genuine quality can end up compromising not just your look but your health too! Would you rather risk an allergic reaction to cheap metals or invest in some quality imitation jewellery from verified sources and let the unmatched craftsmanship make heads turn?
