Tips on shopping for your Gold jhumka earrings

  • Invest wisely: When shopping for jhumkas earrings from an investment point of view look for designs which dont come with pearl or precious stones. These kind of diamond, pearl or kundan jhumkas can shoot up the price of earrings, have more making charges and dont have very good resale value either. For investment purpose yellow gold 22k hall marked jhumka earrings without stones are best.
  • If you are not looking at your gold earrings as an investment then please do splurge. The addition of pearls and rubies can really add to the charm, making a glam statement. You can even choose matte finish antique jhumkas which make for amazing heirloom pieces you can pass on to next generation. 
  • Add atleast one pair to your bridal trousseau : Jhumka earrings are a must have for all brides. Even if you dont wear them on your big day I suggest you shop for a pair because all you need is a pair of jhumkas to dress of for a event. These earrings have the power to transform any normal ethnic look into party or wedding look and they pair well with all kinds of outfits, be it sarees, lehengas or even punjabi suits
  • If you are buying two or three necklace sets which come with earrings then chances are you will not be adding any pair of jhumka earrings to your bridal trousseau. This is a big mistake. i know of friends who ditched a necklace set for jhumkas and they dont regret the choice at all. You wont be wearing the necklaces much but jhumkas you will wear over and over again. 
  • Weight matters : Also make sure your ear lobes can handle the weight of jhumka earrings as most jhumkas are heavy and can weight around 20 grams each. I personally cant handle such heavy earrings so I always opt for 18k yellow gold jhumkas which more comfortable and easy to handle. Ideally 10 grams per ear should be a good weight to start off with. please try the jhumkas on your ear for atleast 5 minutes before making the final payment. Another option is to buy heavy earrings chain support which help handle the earrings weight. Shop for pretty pearl chain support if you really want huge and heavy jhumkas.
  • When you dont have a budget for heavy gold jhumkas consider 18k jhumkas in yellow gold. Even silver jhumkas with gold plating is an option you can consider for wedding jewellery which is pretty,  and has a precious metal tag which can last a lifetime without you having to spend a chunk of money. Tribe by amrapalli offers many gold plated silver designs.
