Add Some Celeb-Bling
Bipasha Basu <br> Bountiful Indeed

Bollywood's most beautiful showcased a scintillating collection of exquisite jewels during India's testament to fashion bling at the first ever Jewellery Week. The looks are varied and yours to pick and make your own. What kind of bling-bride are you?

Bountiful Indeed
Bipasha Basu
Wearing: Geetanjali Jewellery
The style: Swathed in a variety of gems, Bipasha wears a long pearl necklace, off-set by a thick diamond choker, dangling pearl and diamond chandelier earrings and a slender maang tikka. Her outfit is brazenly contrasting with thickly embroidered borders and a heavily embroidered lehenga.
Make it yours: If you like the contrasting-hued and many-jewelled look, make sure to repeat the variety in the outfit with those of the jewels. Bipasha wears pearls and diamonds of various lengths and styles, that are repeated in her speckled choice of fabric and colour.

The Showstopper
Deepika Padukone
Wearing: Farah Khan Jewellery
The style: With a five-tier jadau pearl and ruby gold necklace, matching three-drop earrings, chunky cocktail ring and an expansive tikka on her forehead, Deepika stuns us in a midriff-bearing, subtly worked-on gold, net lehenga, that complements the jewellery.
Make it yours: Wear long-sweeping pieces teamed with chokers that reflect off each other in colour and style. Your outfit should be delicately embroidered in tones such as gold and nude, so as to not clash with the jadao jewellery.

Peaches and Cream
Katrina Kaif
Wearing: Nakshatra Diamond Jewellery
The style: The jewel-encrusted top and ruffled peach, tangerine and lavender infused flowing skirt, are complemented by the traditional, heavy diamond seven-stone floral cluster design jewellery.
Make it yours: Take an untraditional and fresh take on your colour and style. Keep the bottom light, airy and comfortable, if you chose a heavily adorned top like Katrina has.

Lilac and Iced
Ayesha Takia
Wearing: PC Jewels
The style: Ayesha wears a twin-shade lilac satin lehenga embroidered in a paradise motif replete with exquisite bead and sequin detailing. The uncut diamond and ruby choker, matching chandelier earrings and diamond bangles accentuate the spangled net dupatta and pleated corsetted blouse perfectly.
Make it yours: With one colour dominating the entire outfit, like Ayesha in lilac, make sure that there are contrasts in the detailing, such as those between the pleated corset and net dupatta, and the bejewelled rubies and diamonds on the necklace.

Delightfully Demure
Konkona Sen Sharma
Wearing: Amrapali Jewellery
The style: Konkona's look is jewel-centric with a five-tier kunda rani haar, matching chandelier earrings, a chunky pendant statement choker, a joomar on her head and chunky bangles on her arm. Her outfit is a simple nude sari, with a matching elbow-length blouse, that showcases the jewellery perfectly.
Make it yours: Keep your outfit simple, as Konkana has here, because many elements on one outift will be way too overwhelming.

Dark-toned and Rich
Neha Dhupia
Wearing: Geetanjali Jewellery
The style: A deep-hued, sapphire blue, gold lehenga with a short velvet choli and maroon trim beautifully complemented the gorgeous confluence of traditional gold, diamond and ruby-worked jewels. Wearing a long gold necklace, a traditional cocktail ring and a kundan choker, chandelier earrings and a mang-tikka, Neha is simply beset with a case of the gorgeous blues!
Make it yours: Wear a dark-toned lehenga in unusual colours and complement that with matching jewels – be harmonious, not jarring.
