Echoes of 1920s style combine with a medieval fantasy feel for this slightly exotic trend that calls up images of places far away in both time and space.
They come in a range of materials: fluffy cashmere for cool spring evenings, gauzy silk for summer days, comfortable cotton for the tea-length gown. The pearly patterns vary, too: tiny seed pearls in an overall scatter, sprays on the corners of open-weave knit, borders on the heavier styles.
They're not required to be white, either!
That's not to say that the minimalist hoops are plain--nope. They're studded with sparkle, bound with pearls or been textured or stamped to add visual interest. The hoops, of course, are as a blingy and over-the-top as you want to make them!
They're showing up in plenty of styles as well, many influenced by traditional bridal hair jewelry from India: the tikka (single pendant), dauni (multiple strands) and matha patti (a band along the hairline), plus variants of old Byzantine headdresses and 1920s flapper-style forehead bands. Some are formally balanced, like the dauni--others are more like hairvines worn across the forehead or at the hairline.
