While you can never go wrong with a gold-plated pearl maang tikka, Polki jhumkas, or a Kundan choker, if you've been looking to change things up this wedding season, welcome the humble kamarbandh to your bridal wardrobe. A standout accessory that has the potential to put its bridal jewellery counterparts to shame, an opulent waistband is just what you need to give your ethnic ensembles an uber-stylish upgrade.
Plus, if you're not one to gravitate towards the nine-yard diaphanous drape, now you have all the reason to—cinch your bridal sari with a chic kamarbandh or belt to define your waist and hold the pallu in place, allowing for greater freedom of movement. From a temple jewellery-inspired traditional kamarbandh to a more contemporary, navratan-encrusted belt, scroll ahead for our selection of prized pieces you need to invest in right this minute.
