Shop for affordable handmade jewellery at Festivya.com


For the love of handmade jewellery


Jewellery is one of my weaknesses. I don't just buy. I hoard. I have so much more than I could possibly wear and in fact I don't even have outfits for more than half of my collection. I know I need to clear it out and reorganize it, but that really has not stopped me from shopping for more. The only difference is that I now shop more smartly. I look for pieces that are more versatile and that I can pair with Indian wear and western wear. So in a way I guess I am rebuilding my accessories collection with as many unique pieces as possible and that's when Festivya.com came in the picture.

Festivya offers affordable designer accessories with pieces sourced from various parts of India. A lot of the products they have are handmade and I really love that they are supporting smaller designers. They have a wide variety to choose from in terms of the materials used and even in price range.
The website is really user friendly and you can search for products not just by price and type, but also by designer, which makes it very easy to locate what you like. There is something for everyone, like if you love terracotta sets, then Maansi Designs is the brand for you, but if contemporary metal jewellery is more your style, then check out Wild Wirecraft. There are designs that are fresh and in trend, but they also have items that are very classic and timeless.

The one thing that I found is that the new collections get sold out so soon! I am not joking. I had to choose pieces to style for this post and I looked at some stuff that I really loved from Athena Hues (they have such exquisite designs, you guys) but they got sold out before I could place an order!!!I was so bummed out that I had to go back and choose some other products. So I would suggest that if you like something, don't wait, because it really may not be there the next time you check.
I finally settled for a dokra necklace from Kalaghar and a pair meenakari work earrings from Wild Wirecraft. The earrings got delivered pretty quickly, but the necklace took a few extra days to get delivered maybe because it had come from Orissa.

The Meenakari earrings from Wild Wirecraft




This piece, priced at 490INR, is gorgeous and perfect for work. I was worried that it might be heavy or too long. but it is the perfect length and super light. I was also a bit concerned how the finish would be because sometimes the stem of these earrings can be rough and hurt the ear, but this is smooth as ever. I got so many compliments when I wore this and I think it would work well with office attire as it adds elegance and dresses an outfit without adding bling.








The Dokra Neclace from Kalaghar




This comes in 3 variants with a pure gold one, and a pure silver one, but I chose the one that had gold silver and a bronze shade because I thought that this would pair better with multiple outfits. For today's post I chose to style it with a plain black salwar and gold earrings. Priced at 1830INR, what I liked is how sturdy this piece is and the thread on which this is strung do not cut into my neck.




This chains adds that extra bit of glam for those days at work or even for a function.

I thought that I would do an AVATAR post featuring this neckpiece. Do let me know if you would like to see that in the comments section below. In the meantime I styled it like a hairband, just for kicks and I quite like how it turned out. What do you think?




Now here is the fun part, I have special coupon for you guys.
The code is ISHTYLE which can be used on checking out your purchase but here is the thing- this is literally an early bird offer because only the first 5 people who use this within the next 15 days will get 10% off when they shop from Festivya.com. So don't wait, head over right now and shop because you don't want to be the 6th person in line.
(The coupon is valid from 7th August midnight till 23rd August night)

Just a word of caution, apply this coupon only when you are ready to check out, because once you apply it and then go back to shop for more, it will not work again.

Do let me know which looks you liked the best.
