When the layers are present in more than two numbers then they are referred to as multi-layered jhumkas which are perfect to rock with the Indian traditional dresses. They are trending like fire this season so don't forget to buy them in oxidised silver or gold for a dapper look.

Danglers or also known as dangling earrings are available in multiple shapes in the market such as hoops or one that simply hang.

They are adequate to go with desi attires and have a very bohemian vibe to it. They come in different styles like metallic, pop pom, coloured and many more!


Lakshmi Jhumkas

These earrings come with a small figure of goddess Laxmi on them and are quite appealing to the human eyes. The figure of goddess Laxmi is very beautifully incorporated into the jhumkas with a further extension of mini ghunghroos that complete the look. Remember when we were introduced to the peacock design a while back? They seem like another addition to the already popular style. The crafted idol of Laxmi Ji is a perfect steal for festivals like Diwali, religious events and pre-wedding ceremonies.

Geometrical Jhumkas


The shape of the jhumka is in a more refined manner since the name of the jhumka defines its look. They are available in a lot of shapes like rectangle, triangle, square, dome etc. which you can decide for yourself. Every shape and size is ideal for a particular face that can make you stand out of the rest and they are also a great addition to your jewellery box.
