Amidst all the suspense lie their beautiful fashion earrings. Amidst all their drama and acting dangle their spectacular fashion earrings. Amidst the cultural romance lie the girl’s hoopy fashion earrings. And amidst the belittling quarrels between the saas and bahu the tantalizing fashion earrings steal the show.
I am a 22 year old who’s mother watches Saas Bahu TV shows which means, I at times end up watching them too since that’s how I get to spend time with her. Whilst watching all kinds of dramas, twists and turns throughout countless episodes my mother would suddenly pop with a question while there is some serious drama going on in the episode to a point where inspite of not liking Saas Bahu Shows for some ridiculous reason even I am hooked, and my mom says “She’s got beautiful fashion earrings right?”. And that’s when I turn towards my mom, let that question sync in and tell how can she do that, think of such questions while so much drama is going on...
And now after gluing my eyes back to the screen now my brain is asking me the same questions which is so annoying. But damn it! Those fashion earrings were just so beautiful. And then after a while I towards her and tell her that yes they are amazing! And we ended up laughing.
The thing is these shows look too beautiful, and they are made to create several kinds of fashion trends. Sometimes it really does feel it isn’t a story anymore, it is a propaganda to manipulate and hook people onto the story for the beautiful fashion earrings and other flashy stuff. Whoa I feel manipulated.
Several trends have been introduced using Saas Bahu TV Shows, may it long heavy jhumkis, extremely long and heavy danglers, etc. At times they seems to outrageous but yet people actually try looking for them and wear them and imitate their styles and it does look pretty good at times.
Wait a second! I hope you don’t think these are made from precious metals like gold. If that’s the case you are in for a real surprise my friend they are absolutely so not! Wow for a person who dislikes watching them, I know a lot about them. The thing is, I am from Mumbai and have worked on similar kind of a TV show as an assistant director for a friend for a few episodes. It is so much fun shooting these episodes because they are almost made to be over-dramatized because that’s how they hook people into it. Its like creating a movie script and dividing it into several months worth of episodes, yes that’s how much they drag the entire story line, which they compensate for by creating extreme dramatization of the most miniscule events in the show.
Anyways getting back to the fashion earrings, they are all fake. They are probably made from brass, pewter or nickel. They may be fake but the gold plating done is of a good quality. Although on several occasions the jewellery is often grazed and scratched and is yet used by hiding those parts of the fashion earrings. You can buy such elaborate jhumka pieces for as low as 300-400 bucs. That’s the thing, when we look at these we often think these people have extremely big budgets and their fashion earring and fashion jewellery are very expensive and can’t be afforded by a middle class person. As a matter of fact to bring the costs further down these production houses many a times buy fashion earrings online at massive flat discounts. I remember one of my friends being on the budgeting committee of the jewellery purchase team on one of these shows (yes they need a team for that) and their budgets are often so miserably low that one might just laugh that what would possibly come in such a meagre amount. But thats the thing fashion earrings online and imitation earrings online are made of the aforementioned cheap but durable materials which can actually take a good amount of wear and tear. These are made from extremely durable materials. Several times such TV Shows also receive jewellery sponsors where jewellery brands provide them jewellery maybe for a small fees or on barter basis so as to have a mention in their credits as a sponsor for their fashion earrings.
