Indian Love Affair with Oxidised Jewellery
Celebrating the Indian Love Affair with Oxidised Silver-Plated Jewellery
It starts at a young age, our love affair with pieces of oxidised silver-plated jewellery. From delicate little trinkets to chunky bracelets and oversized earrings, oxidised silver jewellery has been the default accessory for generations of Indian college students. It’s easy to figure out why oxidised silver jewellery is popular - it is affordable, stylish, looks quintessentially Indian because of the intricate designs, but goes wonderfully with western clothes as well as Indian ones.
This love affair that begins in adolescence continues well into subsequent decades. Silver jewellery is associated not just with fiery college students with a curious mind and bold thought. It is also flaunted by confident women at the workplace. Picture your favourite journalist or author, flaunting the finest of handloom sarees or cotton kurtas, complete with a chunky oxidised silver necklace and earrings.
India’s rich heritage of handwoven garments made from sustainable and organic fabrics is acknowledged all over the world. And these gorgeous hand-made clothes in silk, cotton, linen etc are beautifully complemented by oxidised silver jewellery.
What sets oxidised silver apart is that it lacks pretence. It doesn’t scream for your attention with its shine. Rather, it is subdued but intricate, and thus perfect for the workplace. But it is in no way boring. Oxidised silver pieces have so much variety that you can find the right piece for every kind of occasion.
With this in mind, our team at Sohi picked out some of our favourite pieces of oxidised silver jewellery that will surely make you swoon. Check them out: -
