20+ Amazing Temple Jewellery Designs That We Spotted On WMG Brides!

BY Apoorva | 08 Mar, 2019 | 10589 views | 6 min read

Temple jewellery has a little piece of our heart! Not only is it extremely unique from the rest of the jewellery types, but it also allows you to dabble in gold, diamond as well as other precious stones if you like.

In the earlier times, temple jewellery was used to adorn god and goddess and that’s where the name stems from. The regal look of the temple jewellery which originated in the 9th century forms a valuable part of South India’s cultural heritage. And since we were so in love, we rounded up 20+ temple jewellery designs that we completely heart!

How bomb looking is this guttupusalu necklace? It's elegant, its fun and it's perfect for brides who don't want to go all in with gold temple jewellery yet keep it fun! We loved how this bride balanced all that heavy lehenga work with a delicate pearl guttupasalu!

Give us anything chunky and we are in love! These pieces are so unique and easy to style, especially if you are looking for a bridal look. You can pair this with a longer necklace like this bride did or just wear it alone along with a mathapatti.

Nothing screams elegant like an antique piece of jewellery. Add a temple jewellery piece to that and we are in seventh heaven! Antique pieces have a certain charismatic quality about them, which is so alluring for a bridal look.

Dont we love our chunky pieces? This bride went ahead with two temple jewellery pieces which we love. The choker is simple stunning while a longer neckpiece is more traditional. Mixing best of both worlds!

Wearing a kanjeevaram to your 2019 wedding? Take inspiration from this bride on her temple jewellery pieces. We loved the necklace with pearls along with the matching kamarbandh. We are also digging those traditional jhumkis that she opted for.

A little touch of tradition goes a long way. As temple jewellery used to and still is adorned on idols of god and goddesses, most pieces will have a touch of them too. Like this beautiful Ganapati motif necklace that has those cute danglers. 

Simple, yet so beautiful

There is a misconception that all temple jewellery pieces are heavy and super OTT. That's completely untrue. You have beautiful and delicate pieces, like this one, which you can pick over heavier haars for your bridal look too.
