Nose rings over studs

New Delhi, June 29 -- Nose accessories are in vogue like never before, all thanks to our Bollywood divas! While it's not a new style, the trend has grown stronger after Sonam Kapoor and Vidya Balan popularised the traditional 'nathani' worldwide at the Cannes Film Festival, this year.

Many recent as well as upcoming films, too, have the heroines flaunting the look. While Sonam in Raanjhanaa and Deepika Padukone in Chennai Express, wear nose rings, Sonakshi Sinha in Lootera as well as Once Upon a Time In Mumbaai Dobara, and Shruti Haasan in Ramaiya Vastavaiya, will be seen sporting nose pins. We talk to jewellery designers and find out what's more chic - a ring or a pin.

"I prefer nose rings to studs as they give a more feminine look, while studs make one look a bit older. Sonam totally pulls it off but Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Jodhaa Akbar carried it off the best," says Farah Khan Ali.

Alpana Gujral, too, gives her vote to nose rings. "It gives softness to the face but one should have a nice nose for it to look good. Deepika and Sonam look great in nose rings," she says.
