Maharani sets

The Bhuleshwar market near CP Tank road and Malad Natraj Market has countless costume jewellery shops that sell affordable and dazzling baubles for brides-to-be.  Kundan, jadau and pearls is their speciality in layered and choker styles both in silver and gold. We absolutely adore the vintage layered necklaces with big earrings and bangles that would complement just about any bridal ensemble.
