How to Carry Jewellery like 3 powerful women.
Indian gender equality is on the way up. Powerful, strong, athletic, intelligent women are very much on the rise and they are making everything look too easy. From the boardroom to the tennis court, our list of Indian fashion icons is something all Indian women can look up to.
The progress continues today as intelligent, smart and fashionable women are now at the forefront in the workplace.
Chanda Kochhar, CEO & MD of ICICI Bank
The managing director (MD) and chief executive officer (CEO) of ICICI Bank, Chanda Kochhar is leading the second largest lender of money in India in a big way. She is widely considered an influential individual who has shaped the way retail banking in India works today.
Because of her position at such a powerful institution, she is often in the centre of the spotlight, and she takes it in stride. Always dressed in traditional saris and beautiful traditional Indian jewellery, she is the personification of grace.
Mrs. Kochhar always is subtle but meaningful. Bold, powerful and always welcoming, she is not afraid to be traditional – in the workplace where women presently are used to shirts or business suits – Chanda Kochhar is always in a resplendent sari. She accentuates every single time with at least one or two pieces of stunning jewellery. Her favorite trends include real pearl necklaces, beautiful gold and diamond necklaces, and ruby or sapphire studded gold earrings.
The Takeaway: Everyday working women who have a long commute or use public transportation to travel from and to work should take this big lesson from Chanda Kochhar and that is to remember one thing: less is more. In gold and diamond jewellery, you need to focus on quality of the jewellery and not necessarily the size.
The other major takeaway here is that you can wear traditional Indian clothing to the office as long as you know how to carry yourself with the perfect jewellery accompaniments.
Tennis Superstar Sania Mirza
Indian tennis superstar Sania Mirza continues making headlines today all the while competing against the world’s best tennis players. Sports and jewellery are rarely seen together. Athletes, male or female, generally do not wear much jewellery nor are they accustomed to it, but Mirza is used to shine in the fashion world.
A fashionista in her own right, Mirza always wears beautiful gold earrings even during her matches and has even walked the modeling runway showcasing her love for diamond and gold jewellery.
The Takeaway: You can be a strong, competitive and focused athlete and still wear jewellery. Many have the misconception that beauty and strength are opposites, Mirza proves this otherwise by always showing up her ace game both in tennis and in terms of being a fashionista to look up to!
Indra Nooyi, CEO PepsiCo
She made headlines around the globe by becoming CEO of one of the most profitable companies of our time, CEO of PepsiCO. Indra Nooyi is a strong leader, always present and always wearing the right things for the right time.
She is ranked amongst the 100 most powerful women in the world, a recipient of the prestigious Padma Bhushan in 2007, Ms. Nooyi’s business sense and work speak for themselves.
Her dressing sense is also equally admirable. Always conservative, she gives an air of power with her easily approachable nature and finely selected business suits. She adds just subtle statements of fashion; often seen with ornate scarves and a shiny necklace.
The Takeaway: When you are in the boardroom or being interviewed, make it known that you are there to compete. A simple dressing sense invites attention to your ideas and gives you more credibility as a powerful decision maker. Focus on simple pieces of gold jewellery such as earrings or even simple gold and diamond necklaces to make the right statement.
These powerful women, in addition to being role models for all Indian women are inspirational to women all over the world. Their accomplishments in their own fields are extraordinary and we are so honored to be able to recognize them for their sense of fashion as well as their accomplishments.
At Jewel Rich, we enable women to afford beautiful jewellery that will set them apart from the rest of the crowd.
