Fashion Elegance: The Journey of Temple Jewellery from Tradition to Trendsetter

Although Temple jewellery is an essential heirloom in every South Indian female’s jewellery collection, but today the craft has transcended regional boundaries to become a fashionable adornment across India. Thanks to both Bollywood icons and the creative genius of top Indian jewellery designers, young women all over the world are in awe as soon as they spot the simple yet artful pieces of work from the 9th century.

Let’s delve into the reasons for Temple Jewellery’s rise to nationwide craze:

Influence of Regional and Bollywood Films and Icons: The appeal of Temple jewellery reached new heights in the last few years among Hindi-speaking belt/audiences with the popularity of South- Indian films. Also, the love affair of Bollywood’s leading ladies like Deepika, Priyanka, Kangana, Mouni Roy, Rashmika Mandanna, Shehnaz Gill, and many more with temple jewellery added to the inspirations. Fans and followers saw their Fashion Divas flaunting it on the silver screen, at weddings, and at star-studded and red-carpet events. From intricate jhumkas to statement necklaces, these pieces added a touch of glamour and tradition to their ensembles, inspiring a generation of fashion enthusiasts to embrace this timeless trend.

Evolution From Prestige to Accessible Elegance – Temple jewellery is originally sculpted from gold, silver, and precious stones and depicts temple tops, deities, and divine figurines in the designs. There was a time when this class of exquisite gold, diamond, and silver jewellery pieces were created and reserved only to adorn temple deities and royalty, but with time this exclusively crafted temple jewellery entered the common commercial platform in the form of replicas (brass and 1 gm gold plated sets) to suits all budget.

Versatility Redefined: Temple Jewellery’s versatility is its ability to appeal to all generations. Furthermore, Temple jewellery is now not only confined to bridal outfits but can be paired with traditional attire like silk sarees, lehengas, Indo-Western dresses or Anarkali suits. Its adaptability lies in its ability to complement various outfits, from traditional ethnic wear to modern attires.

Mix and Match: Young fashionists always like to experiment. You can spot Bollywood icons pairing pieces such as earrings, necklaces, bangles, and rings as statement pieces for styling contemporary outfits. Indian designers and jewellery brands are mixing metals like gold, silver, brass, and even semi-precious or imitation stones to create various designs for Temple jewellery enthusiasts.

Temple jewellery will continue to adorn Bollywood icons, fashion influencers, and everyday fashionistas, bridging the gap between the past and the present with its timeless allure and cultural significance.
