It’s almost time for the warm glow of diyas, carefully placed rangoli, and endless outfits carefully curated. Diwali season is here!
Diwali, at its heart, is a festival that celebrates the triumph of good over evil and involves the invitation of blessings to our homes. The five-day-long festival begins with Dhanteras, which falls on the 23rd of October this year.
Family gatherings, pujas, and parties are synonymous with the season. Our best Diwali jewellery is brought out and the glam factor is turned up high! Contemporary, minimal fine jewellery is all the rage for the season, with people opting for lightweight designs that they can dress up and down.
Read on for the latest festive jewellery trends and how to style them. Plus, we’ve added a little gifting guide at the end to make this an extra happy Diwali for your loved ones!
1. ALL GOLD EVERYTHING
Some things never change and for good reason! Diwali is the perfect time of the year to bust out all your gold jewellery. Gold tones go with almost every traditional outfit you can think of, and add warmth to your look.
For a minimal outfit, we’d recommend statement gold pieces like our Cirque Necklace and Large Hoops. The dangling discs add movement to the look, and a pair of oversized gold hoops add a modern touch to a traditional look.
A more glam look would call for a subtle statement like our Cirque Hoop Earrings and Halfway There Bracelet. The matching textured gold is all the drama you need!
Featuring: City Of Stars Necklace, Sol Earrings, DOTM Diamond Bracelet
2. A DASH OF DIAMONDS
You can’t ask for a better time to put on your diamonds! They can be the subtle sparkle you need to brighten a plain outfit or layered on so you radiate that main character energy.
Sticking to a simple kurta and jeans? Add shine to your look Dangling Diamond Necklace or Sol Earrings.
If your look is already eye-catching, all you’ll need to top it off is something dainty like the DOTM Bracelet.
3. PEARLS FOR EVERY GIRL
Add freshness to any Diwali outfit with pearls! They’re all the rage now in newer, bolder styles.
Our Scattered Pearl Necklace and earrings are a twist on your regular pearls and make the perfect Diwali earrings.
If you’re opting for a low-neck top, our Lariat Pearl Necklace adds a sophisticated highlight to the bare space!
Featuring: Beaded Amethyst Necklace, Beaded Opal Necklace, Beaded Peridot Bracelet, Beaded Ruby Bracelet, Beaded Topaz Bracelet
4. ADD COLOUR TO THE FESTIVITIES
Gemstone jewellery was made for the festivities! We love gemstones because they bring a whole mood to our stacks: colour, sparkle and personality. A pop of rich emerald or ruby is a surefire way to take your look to the next level.
Birthstones also show off your individual style. Wear one as your Diwali necklace and add a vibrant pop of colour to your outfit.

5. ADORN YOURSELF WITH EVIL EYE
Evil eye jewellery istrending right now, and it also makes a great choice for this auspicious occasion. While being a protectant against bad “Nazar” or ill intentions, it’s also an extremely stylish symbol that has deep meaning!
Our showstopping picks for Diwali would be the Marquise Evil Eye Diamond Necklace and Hamsa Hand Evil Eye Bracelet with both Diamonds to finish the look!
