Heavy Chandbalis Are The Only Accessory You Need For Durga Puja And We Found Pretty Ones On A Budget

By  | 

Fun Fact: Chandbali earrings originated Mughal or Nizam era in Hyderabad, thus giving them their unique and rich air of royal jewellery.

Apart from jhumkas, chandbalis are easily one of the most popular pieces of bling favoured by desi women. The fuller size and elaborate designs make them the go-to statement piece, enough to be worn on its own. There are also more than a dozen different types of chandbali earrings, making them easy to shop for because of the varieties they offer. The name chandbali alludes to the shape of the style, mimicking a crescent, sometimes full, moon. This distinctive style has been adapted in many different shapes, sizes, colours and layers. I mean, look at Sonam Kapoor looking an absolute vision in her Maheep Kapoor gold dusters.

These heavy danglers and dusters are, therefore, our pick come the Durga Puja festivities! From Ashtami bhog to Navami Dhunichi, these earrings will go with all of our pujo garbs. We have the gold toned ones to pair with our shada saree-laal paad, or the colourful beaded ones to wear with taant sarees. It makes sense since everyone is wearing chandbalis these days. And with good reason… they make our face light up instantly and suit all face shapes. The length and shape are key to using this earring and there is a perfect chandbali for everyone.
