In the space of five years, Janhvi Kapoor has managed what would take most a lifetime to achieve—a portfolio of acclaimed movies on the silver screen and some serious fashion cred offscreen. A Gen Z icon in the truest sense, we have come to expect looks that everyone will covet whenever she steps out—a blend of contemporary candour and classic elegance that bristles with the essence of the new-age woman. 

Whether she is jetting off to an exotic beach paradise or commanding all eyes on the red carpet, young Janhvi knows how to lean into the styling potential of natural diamonds to elevate any look. A voluminous ballgown? Never complete without a pair of classic studs. A statement lehenga? Hold on, while she parades an equally striking natural diamond neckpiece to go with it. Looking for a one-and-done dress-up formula? Can she interest you in the styling capabilities of a statement cocktail ring

Ahead, a closer look at Janhvi’s standout style moments that serves as an envy-worthy showcase of the beauty of natural diamonds:

Diamond Choker

When in doubt, Janhvi knows that a statement natural diamond moment is the only way to make an entrance. Further proof can be found in her recent appearance on the Filmfare Awards 2023 red carpet. For rounding out the saturated hue of her Gauri and Nainika gown, she opted for a striking natural diamond choker that received maximum mileage against the bodice of her strapless gown.

Fashion never rests, and neither does Janhvi. On the second night of the NMACC opening gala, the star swapped her pearls for custom noir couture from Manish Malhotra, teamed with a lustrous brocade dupatta. The ensemble served as the perfect canvas for her natural diamond choices for the night: layered necklaces crafted from uncut diamonds, statement kadas and a floral maang tikka flanking her loosely relaxed waves.

Diamond Drop Earrings

There’s no such thing as too much of a good thing, and Janhvi proved the wisdom behind the words when she struck a pose for the cover of ELLE magazine in a disco ball gown by Kilang Aier and tossed in some frosting by way of drop earrings from Narayan Jewellers. If you have been looking to move beyond the classic hoops, a pair of natural diamond danglers like hers can be slotted seamlessly into your party wardrobe.

Statement lehengas and timeless saris might come to mind when you think of designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, but Janhvi defied expectations at his 20th anniversary celebration by opting for a red bodycon dress that offers immense après-hours appeal. For completing her vision of yesteryear glamour, the star opted for teardrop natural diamond earrings from the couturier—a versatile, hardworking silhouette that will earn a permanent spot in your work-to-weekend rotation.

Proving that there are infinite ways to elevate a basic sari, the star unveiled the ‘Thanjavur’ collection for Reliance Jewels in an earthy drape. The star of the night, however, was the statement natural diamond necklace around her neck—an exquisite amalgamation of culturally-infused motifs inspired by the art and architecture of the temples of Thanjavur.

Diamond Earrings and Cocktail Ring

When given the choice between go bold or go home, Janhvi prefers the former as witnessed in her cover shoot for Bridal Asia magazine. Channelling the finest that the world of bridal couture has to offer, the star carried forward the more-is-more memo to her jewellery box with shoulder-grazing diamond earrings and an exquisite cocktail ring. The pièce de résistance came in the form of the statement natural diamond neckpiece that dialled up the drama.

Floral Studs

Fresh off the success of her debut movie Dhadak, young Janhvi joined the glitterati on the awards circuit with a dreamy white gown from Reem Acra. Leaving her hair in a gently tousled bun, the star reached for floral studs from Anmol Jewellers and slid some delicate natural diamond rings around her fingers for some come-hither sparkle under the spotlight. Consider this a masterclass in minimalism.

Diamond Studs

Sometimes all you need to elevate your look is some elegance and some sparkle, and no one does it like this star by allowing the mosaic mirrorwork bodice of her Atelier Zuhra gown to have its moment in the spotlight and rounding out the look with a slicked-back bun and classic natural diamond studs. If you have been overlooking the value that a classic pair of studs can offer for elevating your wardrobe, allow Janhvi to convince you otherwise

Natural Diamond Ear Cuffs

No Monday blues to see here. On a wintry night in December 2019, young Janhvi channelled the season’s snowy memo with a faux feather dress rounded out with crystal-studded Louboutins. With her hair secured in a French top knot, she allowed her natural diamond ear cuffs their time under the marquee lights and cinched the dress at the waist with a glittering crystal belt.
