A major change that has undergone a snowball effect in the lockdown times is ‘Work From Home’. While we stay hooked on to our screens, still adjusting to new routines and having nowhere to go to and no one to meet, dressing up naturally takes a backseat.
For all of us whose lives resemble the ‘wake up, work, sleep, repeat’ pattern, we must remember that dressing up is an aspect to facing the day that really helps in staying motivated and positive, no matter how times change.
When logging in for work-related meetings or a regular day at work, it’s often the norm to display minimalist jewellery pieces. Simply because pops of colour and funky earrings might be your favourite thing to wear, it does not make them appropriate work-wear jewellery. Another important thing to remember is that with work-from-home, webcam-assisted meetings are focused more on your face. This means that while you maybe wearing an anklet everyday – it doesn’t really show on the webcam. Therefore, it helps to focus on accessorizing your upper body, with earrings, rings and bracelets. But worry not! This does not mean you have fewer options. Just with these too, the sky’s the limit when it comes to MOI.
Keeping all of this mind, sometimes it can be daunting to find the right look quickly for your virtual meetings, so to get the boss lady in you situated to work from home everyday, we've got some tips for you to learn how to accessorize well for a work-from-home day.
Here’s our guide to the essentials you can invest in for a stylish work-from-home routine.
1. Go Offline and Online With The Onyx Pearl Earrings
Subtle diamond earrings such as this one, are a wonderful example of exactly the kind of work-from-home jewellery you should don. That’s why we recommend our Onyx Pearl Earrings when attending a meeting– virtually or physically!

4. Zaha Ring- Inspired from architecture marvels!

6. A Subtle Sparkler, The Heer Necklace
Working from home requires a right balance when it comes to styling accessories. Jewelry is supposed to be a second skin and not something something that will make you fidget throughout your videocall. So, what you choose to wear for your online appearance has to be comfortable, keeping in line with your personal style of self-expression. Our beautiful Heer necklace rises perfectly to this occasion.
An interesting detail about this piece is that the rose cut diamonds are set both on the front and reverse side of each unit. This allows the necklace to sit freely on the neck without the fear of the necklace turning and the diamonds not being seen.
Our love for old school workmanship shines in this beautifully handcrafted necklace that is a string of elements worked in silver, holding uncut diamonds combined with bold, black enamel detailing. The Heer Necklace is lined with pave-set rose-cut diamonds and has an adjustable hook and eye closure which helps the necklace sit elegantly on the neck.
Not only is this stunning piece lightweight, but its simplicity is eye-catching as well.
7. Anniki Pendant, Because Black Never Goes Out Of style
Another great way to spice up your work-from-home look is by picking a statement pendant. Most of us have a wide collection of pendants which we only take out of the jewellery box for special occasions. No more of this now because well, this year has certainly taught us that every day is special, and we certainly do not need any special reason to dress up.
With a layer of sophistication and minimalism, this concept, designed with a lot of thought, emerged from our designer Puja’s sketch book! Our Anniki Pendant will be that addition to your jewellery box, which you can wear with almost everything. Be it a formal, blazer clad outfit or just a shirt you wear for your work-from-home meeting. Attached to a black hued mother of pearl, the pendant holds a pearl in the centre that is bordered with brilliant-cut diamonds. The Anniki Pendant is further embellished with blue enamel and a filigree border surrounded by emerald and pearls.
With the Anniki Pendant, you can also amp up any ethnic indian outfit or even one of those lazy weekends with your girlfriends!

Inspired by the famed French souvenir bracelets, the Ivy Bracelet is perfect when you want to maintain a professional appearance. It instantly makes you presentable and stylish. Our Ivy Bracelet highlights an iridescently carved mother of pearl, which is lined by diamond studded paisley panels strung with lines of pearls holding the closure.
