Beauty meets fashion | Ethnic jewellery from

It probably comes as no surprise to you that my beauty stash is quite big. Enormous is probably a better word to describe it. Eyeshadow and foundation in particular are my weaknesses, and I just can’t stop buying more. And it doesn’t end there, because the same don’t-need-but-will-still-buy phenomenon takes place in my jewellery stash. I have boxes and boxes full of jewellery, but I just can’t stop adding new pieces to my already gigantic collection. So when the people from asked me if I wanted to review some jewellery from their online store, I happily said yes. KalkiFashion is an Indian web shop based in Mumbai that sells ethnic clothing and jewellery. I personally like jewellery that looks a bit different and exotic, so I was very excited to see what would end up in my mail box. And this is what I got:

I received two sets of gold-colored earrings: one very eye-catching pair with dangly chain links and beads, and one pair with cute pink roses.

The two sets are quite different from one another, but I like both. The rose earrings are really girly and pretty, and the big earrings are very glamorous and dramatic. The big earrings are also quite light by the way, which was a big relief because I have very sensitive ear lobes that can’t handle a lot of weight.

Bottom line? I am very happy with my new earrings, and you will definitely see me wearing them a lot in the future! Thank you, KalkiFashion!

Which of these two sets of earrings do you like best? What style of jewellery do you prefer?

  1. oh heel mooi die eerste, super etnisch! bij de tweede heb ik dat gevoel wat minder

  2. Wat een prachtige oorbellen! Met name de oorbellen met de roosjes :-) Staan je goed!

  3. Leuke oorbellen! Vooral die roosjes zijn erg leuk.

  4. Prachtige foto van jou en ik kies de eerste oorbellen ,die wil ik ook!

  5. Vind die tweede erg mooi! Staat je ook goed ! x

  6. Het is niet helemaal mijn stijl maar die eerste zijn wel leuk voor met kerst!

  7. Olalala mooie oorbellen! Ze staan je ook erg goed! De eerste vind ik het mooist, a girl needs some dramatic earrings! Je piercings in je oor vind ik anders ook wel leuk ;) Leuke plaatsen

  8. Those dangly ones are awesome, but for everyday, I’d probably go for the rose one, although they’re both pretty earrings:)

  9. Ik vind ze allebei heel erg mooi. Zoals Emmy zegt: de eerste voor een feestje, de andere voor elke dag. Veel plezier ermee ;-).

  10. :O Their both nice but that first pair is gorgeous, beautiful statement pieces! I would totally go for those. :)

  11. Can’t decide wich I like better on you, probably both! :D

    So lovely Jewellery ^^
    I love all pieces :)


  15. The little flower studs are my favorite. So cute!

  16. Ah die roosjes zijn zó cute! Ah wat leuk :)

  17. Dat eerste paar is echt prachtig! Je hebt trouwens een supermooie kleur op je lippen. Welke is dat?

  18. Loved the first one on you very much! Second one is simple for everyday wear! Indian jewelry is really very beautiful :) Well, i m indian .. so it is natural for me to like it :) he he! But it looks gorgeous on you Melissa!

  19. De roosjes vind ik erg mooi! In ieder geval originele oorbellen! :)

  20. Wat een gave oorbellen! Vooral die met de roosjes vind ik erg mooi :)

  21. Super jolie ces boucles d’oreilles ^^

  22. Loved both pairs! I must check their site out and get some good stuff :)

  23. I liked them both… I would wear the roses :)

  24. Ik vind de eerste paar oorbellen erg mooi, de tweede is niet mijn ding. mooie lippenstift trouwens.

  25. I love roses, so I’ll go with the roses!

  26. The roses are fun! I like both of these – I’m definitely an earring girl, myself.

  27. Ze zijn allebei erg leuk. Wat heb jij toch steeds prachtige ooglooks!

  28. Ik vind beide oorbellen heel erg leuk! Ze staan je ook goed. x

  29. Ik draag eigenlijk bijna geen oorbellen en als ik ze draag draag ik onopvallende :P Dus deze zijn niks voor mij
    Jou staan ze wel goed!

  30. omg their jewelry is stunning! and I also love your makeup here girl. xx. gigi.

  31. Die bloemen earrings zijn super mooi! Subtiel en Classy, love it!

  32. Leuk, vooral die met roosjes!

  33. Whoa, that first pair is MEGA! I used to wear simpler clothes and bolder jewelry, but for the past few years it’s been simpler jewelry and bolder clothes. Unfortunately I can’t wear earrings too often. Despite the fact that I’ve had my piercings for about 14-15 years, sometimes they still swell up a little after a day of wearing earrings. No idea why (I only wear silver earrings as well. Can you even imagine what would happen if it’s NOT silver?)!

  34. Die eerste oorbellen zij helemaal mijn ding!

  35. Oooh, I love being asked an opinion. :) I adore the rose earrings, and would wear them often. Having said that, the gold chandelier earrings are stunning on you. You have such a beautiful bone structure and face, that you can carry off the size and drama of these earrings as well.

  36. Very nice earings!
    Mafalda ❤

  37. Wow, wat een prachtige oorbellen!

  38. Ohhhh Lord that second pair… gorgeous… hnnng I want them… rose or purple combined with gold, silver or bronze is my soft spot at the moment.

  39. The roses look good on you. Very interesting pieces!

  40. I loved small one , that flower ear ring , very cute looking .
