Living in the 21st century has brought about changes galore; which can be seen and felt all around us. But while the country’s undying love for “the Big Fat Indian Wedding” hasn’t changed (and rightly so), the preferences of a bride have definitely expanded their horizons. The new-age bride is a modern woman, one who is confident and knows exactly what she wants. She is one who is willing to trade in over-the-top and excessively shiny heirloom jewellery with jewellery that is practical, versatile, usable and equally gorgeous. And if you relate to this, then we have something that might help and interest you:
