An ancient piece of jewellery, bangles and bracelets have been intrinsically associated with women in Oriental civilizations, particularly those of the Indian sub-continent. Despite the passage of thousands of years, the bangle has managed to hold its own. From no-frills glass bangle sets to fanciful bejewelled bracelets, this article of jewellery has evolved into varied forms and Indian women can scarcely imagine dressing up for an event of some importance without adorning their wrists with them. The Anita Dongre collection of bracelets and bangles perfectly captures the sheer loveliness, grace and, most of all, timelessness of this enduring item of jewellery. The collection includes both classic bangle designs as well as aesthetically recreated designs. The haathphool – a traditional bridal ornament – from our collection for instance, has a design that evokes heritage, what with its regal architecture-inspired motifs and embedded crystals. The broad crystal bangle, on the other hand, has been given an unusual spin, so notwithstanding the ornate crystal work, it has an unconventional, Roman cuff-like design. Meticulously crafted and finished, our fancy bangles are sure to add a good deal of glamour to your formal Indian get-up. You could choose and order our bangles online or visit one of our outlets. We offer free shipping in India.
The face of the Indian fashion industry for over 20 years, Anita Dongre is the creator of one of the most successful fashion houses in the country. This now-iconic designer label was launched in 1995 and presently comprises a portfolio of brands including the luxury brand Anita Dongre. The latter has particularly gained acclaimed for its couture, bespoke bridal-wear, handcrafted gold jadau jewellery and menswear. Synonymous with peerless craftsmanship, Anita Dongre’s creations showcase the time-honoured sartorial traditions of the country in a contemporary language. The architectural heritage and flora and fauna of the regal state of Rajasthan in western India have been a particularly prominent source of inspiration for the label’s distinct designs and motifs. Anita Dongre boasts a loyal clientele consisting of world-renowned celebrities and India’s glitterati.
From the Fashion Sage’s Mouth
Expectedly, fineries – gorgeous sarees, lehengas, and salwar-kameez sets – will enhance the glitter and glamour of our ornately designed new bangles. For a day event, go for our silver Asya suit, a shimmering brocade suit set exquisitely embellished with Gota Patti, pearls, and sequins. Pair this with crystal chaandbalis and our crystal multi-chain bracelet for a look that spells sheer grace. A sequinned silver minaudiere will complete the look. For a formal evening affair, choose our Jade gown, an emerald green dress featuring sheer sleeves and intricate embroidery of resham, zari and sequins. This ethereally beautiful gown needs little accessorizing, lest attention should get diverted from the richness of the costume. Hence, our broad crystal bangle should suffice if your style can be best defined as subtle. For a dressier look, you could wear a choker emerald necklace but wear no more jewellery than this. An embroidered potli bag from our collection will add the perfect finishing touch to your look.
