Chandbali Earrings originated during the Mughal or Nizam (royal kings before British Rule) era in Hyderabad, a city located in the southern part of India. The ethnic and royal touch is the main theme of Hyderabadi Chandbalis. In this blog, we have showcased our evergreen Chandbali designs and discuss its popularity among women today.
Chandbali as the name suggests literally means, ‘moon earrings’. These are traditional drop earrings having a cresent shaped moon encircled within a full moon. These drop earrings are often studded with uncut diamonds, cut diamonds, rubies, emeralds and pearls.
Hyderabadi Chandbali earrings have a special uniqueness and design which makes them really royal and outstanding. These are perfect for any occasion, and they go well with anything ethnic like sarees, anarkalis or indo-western outfits. In fact, I live in New Jersey, USA and often flaunt my Chandbalis with jeans and stylish tops. These unique drop earrings have a real
elegant look and have gained immense popularity in recent years, as we find an increasing number of Bollywood actresses wearing them both in movies, as well as in their personal lives.
Usually these are of round or oval shape in varied designs. The most popular ones in Chandbalis are the traditional hoops, jhumar and the multilayered drop earrings. At Totaram Jewelers, we make all our latest design Chandbalis in 22K gold. Each piece is handcrafted locally in Hyderabad by expert goldsmiths.
