Bollywood thrives in the heart of India. These films, with their stunning visuals, visceral imagination, scintillating glamor and larger-than-life stars, are perhaps our country’s favorite form of entertainment. They are a true celebration of culture and color, being bright, vibrant and full of energy. It’s no surprise, then, that Bollywood stars and films are constantly pushing the envelope, setting wardrobe trends with equally stunning luxury jewelry and immortalizing it in film. Period films such as Mughal-e-Azam and Jodha Akbar etched jewelry fashion into the minds of millions of women who also identified it with their mainstream culture. Period films have recently made a comeback with movies like Samrat Prithviraj coming full circle in Bollywood to reintroduce the great old traditions of vintage jewelry.

Creating wardrobes or costumes for films is undoubtedly one of the most difficult tasks in cinema. When the film is a period piece, it becomes even more difficult. Nevertheless, Bollywood filmmakers have often succeeded. And, with Samrat Prithviraj out today, it seems like the perfect time to watch the most gripping gems from our favorite period dramas.
